Wow $75 to lengthen sleeves? Wonder if they take your old sleeves off and just put new longer ones on.

MyWardrobe is one:

Sign up for their emails as they sometimes do codes.  Don't know where they're based, but IIRC they deduct VAT.  I'm not really sure about W's shop, but a couple of tips based on what I've found:

 

-There are A LOT of fake sites out there.  Barbour's own site lists probably all of them.  Usually they have the name "Barbour" in the shop name.

-I've found that some styles are noticeably less on UK sites, and that's even before you deduct VAT and take a discount.  EU sites outside of the UK tend be the same as US pricing though. 

-You might want to check here in the States if that's where your based.  Barbour has discounts, typically on weekends, but they usually exclude the classic styles.

-VAT tends to be deducted either at checkout, if they have a US version of their site or if you create an account.

Does anyone have an explanation for why Barbour does not use chest measurements for the ashby, instead opting for S M L etc.? This is madding. I am just under 5'11" and 135 lbs and I ordered a 34 bedale and it was too large, and too long, even in the sleeves. My actual chest is about 33" and I have a 32 coming now. The thing is, I hear people on here who are a couple inches shorter than me complaining that the sleeve are too short on size 38's and 40's. I don't have particularly short arms so I'm baffled at this.

 

And you'd think, okay, I'm a slimmer guy, I should probably go for the ashby right? Since it's a slimmer bedale. Yet when I look at the measurements for even the smallest ashby, the XS, it is significantly larger than the 32 bedale I ordered, in terms of chest, length, and sleeve length. My goodness this is a headache.

 

EDIT: Actually the sleeves on the XS ashby are a bit shorter than the 32 bedale, but the chest size and overall length are significantly greater.

How is this possible? Your on that Christian Bale machinist time?

Im 5'8" and the 38 sleeves are perfect for me on bedale...idk how a 34 could be too large other than your shoulders are so narrow that you have more distance beween where the arm holes sit which would add length to the arms

That's what I am thinking (that he has narrow shoulder). I have a 36 Beaufort and the sleeves are a little short on me. I am a 38 chest and typically wear 32-33 sleeve length shirts.

Yea I have really broad shoulders...product of working out a ton in college and getting up to 195...now at 165 with much smaller shoulders than I used to have I still cant fit into a 36 without it pulling funny. Its too bad because 36 fits so much better in the waist for me. I love my bedale sad to see it go to the closet, I wore the hell out of it this winter.

Ive been wearing my g9 the last few weeks and even that gets too warm on my walks to work, Idk how people are wearing their blasts and not getting too hot. Anything over 55 and I am breaking a sweat with a jacket on.

Must be the shoulders thing. I can see no other explanation. The sleeves on the 34 hung almost an inch over the fleshy part at the base of my hand. 

 

I'm still confused about the ashby though. Measurement-wise, the XS through XXL of the ashby is basically the same as the regular bedale size 34 through 44, only difference being that the ashby sleeves are a bit shorter, and in many cases the chest and length is actually greater than the bedale. I just don't see how they can bill it as a slimmer, modern cut bedale, though I've never tried one on.

 

I wish there existed a thread dedicated entirely to users posting a picture of themselves wearing their barbour along with jacket size, and body weight and height. Could save a lot of returns/exchanges I reckon.

Where did you get those measurement charts from? 

post #1464 of 2465

countryattire.com

post #1465 of 2465

Interesting, because End has different measurements suggesting the Ashby is noticeably slimmer.

post #1466 of 2465

You're right. I don't know about the ashby, but living in Japan I could only find the bedale SL, so I emailed barbour directly about the difference between the regular and SL bedale, and the measurements they gave me were exactly the same as what country attire lists. This would lead me to trust the country attire measurements, but I haven't inquired about the ashby so who knows. In any case, I feel barbour makes sizing unnecessarily complicated.

Hi can anyone identify the colour and model of this jacket? I believe it's the Bedale but it's got both brown and greenish hues and I just can't accurately tell which colour it is, help would be appreciated! biggrin.gif
post #1468 of 2465

Almost positive it is a beaufort (see the rear pockets to the left of his hand, bedale doesn't have that). It is definitely in classic sylkoil olive, any color variation is probably from age + wear.

Thanks for the help, I missed those rear pockets. Is that really the olive colour? Everywhere I look on the internet shows olive as a really dark green colour, and I've read that the Sylkoil finish makes it even darker? That jacket looks quite light.

For example, this is the Beaufort Classic Sylkoil in olive from countryattire.com

Thansk again for the tip, I bought an Ashby at The Highland Store off Oxford Street. It was sold out in my size both at Regent Street and at the flagship store.
