Its probably baggy. Classic fit in Barbour is like their Beaufort style where they make it with a bit of room for layers. If you want something snug, you want to look for "modern cut" or some variation of that.

Yeah that seems to be the consensus. Medium it is.

Cheers.

But I prefer the elastic action on the Bedale vs. the Ashby.

 

ANYONE HAVE A SL BEDALE AND ASHBY?  I know the SL Bedale is slimmer in the chest than your standard Bedale, but I was curious if it's slimmer than an Ashby in the chest.

WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING?
post #2000 of 2657
I am interested in the Barbour Rexton jacket. The one I am looking at is advertised as: "As this is a distressed, stonewashed jacket it cannot be re-waxed."

Is it true the Rexton cannot be re-waxed?

I own the Polarquilt zip-in liner, which I wear with my Beaufort. I don't find it warm enough. Does anyone know if the "pile" liner is warmer?

Do you have a link to the advertisement?  No matter what, it can be re-waxed.  Whether it should be or not, or whether or not it'll somehow be difficult or ruin the coat I don't know.  However I would think that so long as it needs a re-wax you should be able to do it.

Seems strange to me as well but it looks like that info comes from Barbour itself. I'd assume they know what they're talking about:

Well at the end of the day you can.  You can wax your socks if you want, not that I would mind you.  My guess is that they wouldn't be willing to do it for you more so than you can't do it.  I mean you can buy some wax from Barbour and give it a shot yourself.  Still just seems strange to me.

Maybe because the Rexton is finished with a kind of vintage look? Rewaxing it would completely change the appearance of the jacket. I would imagine it could be done though.

What about rewaxing a down parka? I imagine it would be difficult / impossible? Would you have to remove the down first?

I agree for the most part.  I think some of the detailing will still make it look vintage, but the wax if applied consistently should darken the coat and make those details far less noticeable.  

 

I have a Nigel Cabourn x Eddie Bauer down jacket that was sold as waxed.  Not nearly as waxy as a Barbour, but it is indeed waxed.  I would think it would depend on the outer fabric and the type of wax you use more than anything.  I don't think you'd need to remove the down.

I feel like I've answered this question a thousand times on here, but yes, it is warm.  I highly recommend it.

I read this on an ad on Ebay: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/151216735677?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

The vendor buys direct from Barbour, and is very knowledgeable from communication I have had with him. But he seems to be wrong on this point.

Country Attire delivers free, while Orvis does not. It also delivers via USPS once it reaches the US, so I've been able to avoid import duties so far.
