Right, that was just to show that the sleeves were getting up a bit when I move my arms, probably not the best way to show it, but the imortant thing is that you understood my point.

I think I'll keep it, because it was the last one in the shop, they don't have L size anymore, and as it was on sale, I can't have my money back, only a coupon in the shop, wich is in England.. And it has all the features I wanted, a thicker cotton, a hood, a good simple cut, and some leather pieces.

Many thanks in advance for your responses gentlemens, and greetings from France.

The sleeves, shoulder and overall fit look great to me. 

 

If you exercise and move your arms a lot I understand that the tight arm pit might not feel nice. Like BLAUGRANA said, if the arm pit now feels definitely too awkward for you, then you might want to reconsider the size. I suspect alterations would be needed in size L if you wear it with the same under clothing and like the fit as in that picture.

 

I feel uncomfortable wearing a sleeve that comes near the joint of the thumb and the index finder so I like the length of the sleeves in the picture. I like a slim fit so prefer the look of the jacket in the picture to a boxier bigger (L) one.

Thomas Jardin, I would make sure you're comfortable.  Looks great in the photos, but if it's uncomfortable then you probably don't want it.  If the size up is more comfortable and you think you can have a tailor do something with it, then maybe explore that option.  It'll probably cost you a bit though.

 

Agree with everyone else about the arms up thing.  I think extending your hand out straight ahead as if to grab a door or shake a hand is more realistic.  Maybe hugging yourself (don't laugh) gives you and idea too.  Sit down in it as well. 

 

Good luck.


Thank you for your detailled response, after trying another time, I decided to keep it, because that tightness was just annoying me on some moves. i think I'll have more trouble with a larger one. I feels okay when I sit down, when I move my arms straight, it just feels a bit tight when I "hug" myself, so I think it will be ok. Thank you.

This is the best method for testing both arms and back IMO.

Amazing deal for someone in that size! Be sure to post pics of your Scott... Would be really interesting to see detail shots of the tailoring, would help me decide if I should do it and how to do it smile.gif

Heads up, selected models are 50% off at the Soho Barbour store in NYC. They still have the 30% off some models also. Beaufort is not included though.

Nice enough out today so I wore the Surtees for the first time in months... Love the details on this jacket!

To anyone still looking for one, J. Crew has a To Ki To Sports Jacket in small. Expected ship date is the 24th.

 

Edit: It's gone now...

I'm eyeing a Barbour Shetland sweater in Large and am wondering about fit. Anyone have any experience with them? Barbour says a Large is for 42-44" chests. Mine is 42, so I worry that it will be too "relaxed." This is a constant problem for me, as I'm often astride M and L.

Hi,

 

I am looking for an olive Barbour Bedale. So far the cheapest I can find the jacket is about $270 from stores in England. Does anyone know of a cheaper option?

Which store in England? Best In the Country no longer ships outside the EU.

Ebay works, although I doubt you'll get lower than $270 for something new or NWT.

Can you show me which one you're looking at?
