Not tried that sweater, but their knitwear generally comes up pretty big.

Anyone ever pick up the 'Shap' modified Bedale from a while back? I'm thinking of picking up an old Bedale tomorrow and customising it, and wondered if there was anything more to the Shap than the distressing and gun patch on the right shoulder.

 

Perfect day today for the Drover A1557:

Saw pocketsquareguy's Size 40 International on the B/S and am torn.

I have a perfectly functional (and well loved) size 42 that I've had for almost 3 years. It's always been a bit baggy but I figured that was how it was to be worn. The sleeves are already boarderline too short. Why do I feel this need to pursue a 40 which may fit better in the body but be far too short in the sleeve?

(Best of luck to you in the sale, psg!)

i wonder if i should keep a 34 and wash/dry it for shrinkage or go for 32 OR get a 34 and tailor it -__-

Sorry for the late reply... I dropped it off at my tailor lady and told her what I wanted, I had to take it to her again, but she nailed it.

She didn't dart it, she took it apart, re-did the arms smaller all the way from the shoulder/arm pit I assume. She also took the back of the jacket and took it in at the waist.

BTW I think mine is a 38... possibly 36? And I can fit into most 36S jackets. I have a somewhat athletic build with broad shoulders/lats, but a small waist around 30.

That linked ebay Tokito was amazing.

 

Great stuff. Hope Barbour continues this direction.

 

Unique, outstanding design, craftsmanship are qualities for success.

Agreed, that Surtees looks nice.  Looks nicer than it does online.  What size is it?  Also is it the old school fit or one of those updated fits?  Looks the latter.  Your size in that vs To Ki To?  And btw, on that alteration on the Scott, it looks great.  She simply shorted the cuff and re-attached it.  I took it back though because I want another cuff length.  My fault for not going short enough.  She won't charge me and only charged me half of what she normally charges on that sort of alteration in the first place, but it's my fault and I'll pay her all the same. 

 

Like the above sweater too.  I think I saw it in store.  Can't remember.

The Surtees is a large and to me its the perfect autumn jacket. The quilt lining makes it warm enough through all but the coldest days. The fit seems very modern to me with the tapered waist,so I don't know how good it would look if it was a little oversized. My Scott is an XL and I bought it for winter when I need additional layering and I like the fit of it more and more. The sleeves are a little long and even with a thick sweater a little wide, but I think I will only shorten them. Will be nice to see pics of yours.

I ordered the Marlow sweater in Large as well, but it might turn out too big as several members here have pointed out that their knitwear runs large. We'll see. I could live with a fit as below, but I prefer the one above.

Wore my To Ki To Military Jacket in Sage for the first time today.  Added the lining to it since it was about 15'F.  Looks great one and a really cool coat if anyone is looking for an alternative to the Bond/Sporting Jacket.

Wow.  Your Scott is an XL? 

 

Surtees looks really nice.  So many Barbour coats that I like. 

 

If you could provide me with the pit-to-pit measurements when you get he Marlow I'd appreciate.  I tried this one on at the Barbour store and it definitely didn't run big:

That was the only one I tried though.  Being a jacket/cardigan sweater though if it does have room you might want that.  Then you can layer underneath.

Which one?  IIRC I know of a good deal on one of the nicer ones, but it's not the Bond coat if that's what you're looking for.

The military jacket is such a cool piece with amazing details and especially in sage. I have never seen it worn and there isn't any pics online either. I wear the lining constantly in my Scott as it's both warmer and makes the jacket feel more sturdy. I'll try it without once temperatures get higher to see if it's any difference in drape and look when worn. I'll measure the Marlow and post some pics when the Marlow gets here, which shouldn't be too long considering it's shipped from the UK.

Best everyday jacket that will keep me warm?

Looking at the Bedale an its longer version (forgot name).

Suggestions on sizing? I am usually a 38s, so a small should fit since I read they run large.

TIA
