The sleeve/body lengths on their waxed coats seem to be a recurring problem. The liner will be fairly substantial, you made the right call with the 42.

I just picked up a Bedale in size 38 yesterday. After trying it on, I felt like I could've probably fit in any size between 34 and 38 depending on how I wanted it to fit. I picked up the 38 so I could wear both a sweater and the liner in it if needed be. Also, while it is certainly a generous fit and is very roomy, it's not quite oversized enough to make me look as if I'm a child wearing my dad's old jacket. I'm normally a 36s (5'9, 150 lbs).

A few questions though, how long does it usually take for the jacket to soften up? Since the sleeves are rather wide near the arm holes, they bunch up when I place my hands in my pockets, and it looks awkward since the fabric is currently just so stiff (not to mention extremely greasy feeling). Oh well, I suppose I'll just have to put in the time.

Do anyone have first hand experience of the jackets from the new Norton & Sons collaboration? Really like the new cleaner cuts.

From the Alden thread, J Crew code INSTYLE25 seems to be working for 25% off Barbours too.

Hi

 

Anyone know what model this jacket is? The picture's a bit crappy, so hard to tell, but thought a more skilled person might know. Tried to search Google and Google images, but nothing.

I've not seen a single pic that actually does the jackets proper justice, mate.

 

They're bloody stunning in the flesh, in a very classicly English, understated way, and I'm hoping to be wearing a navy Barra jacket in the very near future...superb quality garments, the ones that I've seen.

That Barra is gorgeous! I'm loving the navy. I have three waxed barbour jackets and could easily justify adding the Barra.

Sat down on the Subway leaving work today in my Liddesdale. A older gentleman sat next and happened to also be wearing a Liddesdale. His had been though a lot more than mine. Looked a lot "greener" than my relatively new olive shade. I see this jacket all the time, in all shades (olive, black, navy). Great jacket to have in multiple colors and for work and casual.

Yea, they look stunning. Seems to be hard to locate one through. Cant find a physical store that stock them here in Sweden and the only online store I have found so far is EndClothing.

Do the Barbour owned stores carry the Norton & Sons?

The navy is stunning. A local shop had a few models in stock, but in limited quantities. Someone was actually buying the navy Barra in the size I need as I walked in...they've managed to reorder one for me but it's taking forever and a day to arrive.

 

For sizing reference, I'm a 46 chest with broad shoulders and slim-ish waist but have gone for the large as opposed to the extra-large. I don't bother much with layering though, even in winter. The medium is a pretty good fit on me, too, although not enough wiggle room in it for my liking and I'd be fooked if I put just a little more muscle on. Definitely looked smart though.

Hey Patrick! Yes. The store in Center City Philly has them. When I ordered my Uist last week, the new Chicago store had my size (XL) and shipped for free.
