Nice trade man. I too have a vintage gamefair with the 'stank'. What size do you have on? I'm 6'1'' 200 lbs with a 43 chest and the 40'' gamefair is like a tent on me. I rewaxed mine and it turned out pretty nice. Looks like a matte green leather now confused.gif

Hey guys, I'm on the hunt for the Plan B Commander in size L. Let me know if you happen to have one and are looking to get rid of it. Thanks!

Thanks! It's a C38, and I'm 5'8" 160, with a 38" chest...it's definitely too big to wear just over a shirt or something, but with a chunky Aran over an OCBD like I have in that photo, the fit is pretty good (thought still a bit roomy). I do prefer a more fitted look usually, but considering the stank, I'm only planning on using it when I'm truly "out in the field" and less around town, so can live with a looser fit (which actually looks better with the fuller cut denim and bean boots I'm wearing).

I just rewaxed it yesterday - will try to post photos sometime soon - I'm actually very happy with how it turned out, it took me about 2 hours to do, but after hitting with a blowdryer and letting hang overnight in a warm room it's evened out pretty well and while it's not quite factory level, it's good enough for a foul-weather beater piece.

Strange question, but have any fellas out there tried getting a Beadnell instead of a Bedale in order to get a slightly slimmer fit?

 

Or does the Beadnell have too much shaping to look masculine?

 

I tried on a couple of Barbours when I was in Europe recently and they just looked like a big green box on me...

Along with that slimmer fit you'll get snap closures on the wrong side.

I live in Norway and I am looking for a nice waxed jacket or something close that is water resistant and looks great for the fall/early winter. Considering I am a student without the possibility of trying out a Barbour waxed jacket I'd really like it to fit when it arrives. I am a slim small or a regular XS, really depends on the brand (In PRL I am a Small in the Slim fit shirts, even though they tend to be a tad too long for casual wear). The Barbour site is not the easiest to navigate through at the moment.

What do you guys recommend for me as a first time wax jacket? The Corbridge? Looking for a slim, casual look. Will mostly wear a single shirt or with a sweater. I have the Barbour International Ariel Quilted in XS and it fits quite alright.

Sorry if this question has been asked a thousand times before, but the search function didn't really give me anything and a 105 pages of read in this thread is a little bit of hassle.

Also other jacket recommendations than from Barbour are of course appreciated.

 

Look into the new polo line and get the Argon. It's a waxed jacket that is significantly slimmer than the bedale and beaufort.

I can live with that... would it have a noticeably feminine shape to the jacket?

Just received my bedale back from the factory and I had asked them to repair a tear, rewax, and add a leather trim to the bottom hem. The repair exceeded my expectation and turned out to be much cheaper than what a local tailor would have charged. Here are some pictures of the repair and bonus bag:





They additionally tightened up some loose threads and got this 16 year old jacket back to prime shape.

Can skylkoil jacket be rewaxed using thornproof wax?

post #1590 of 2575
^ yes it's the cotton finish that differs not the wax.
