i love everything RRL but stick with the original for that jacket
I bought the Oilcloth Hunting Jacket several weeks ago (for 1/2 price as a friend works for RL). For that price it was a great purchase. The thing which attracted me to it in the first place was the cut which was much more modern that anything I've owned by Barbour (2 jackets - the Bedale and New Utility). While the Barbour's were great jackets, and the idea of being able to get repairs after 20+ years is appealing, the RRL is more stylish (in my opinion) and just generally a better jacket. I think what I'm trying to say is that, on first impressions the RRL might look a lot like a Barbour, but once you actually wear one and use it, there are some distinct differences.
I'm a standard large (42" chest and 35-36" waist) and went for the large. Its a prefect fit.
