110cm/43 inches for the chest in small seems like it's going to be big on you.

 

This is what I am afraid of.

 

Then again, it isn't suppose to be like a suit jacket - which is intended to be very snug.

 

This is just a whole another 7 inches bigger though.

You should measure a jacket that fits how you want the Barbour to fit.
+7" is going to be gigantic. Especially on a lightweight jacket like that one.

A size 36 suit jacket likely isn't going to measure 36", btw.

I am at work, so I can't go and measure anything.

 

Do you think the chest measurement will be bigger or small than 36" for a size 36 jacket?

 

Barbour can't be that loose. One website had the jacket as fitting a 34-36 chest! Then the website you listed had it at 43"!

Comparison between the Ashby (M) and the SL Bedale (38). Like I promised I've attached a few photos below, you'll be able to spot the differences. Regarding fit, the SL Bedale fits just a tad slimmer, both in the arms and the chest, it's that slim fit I think people wanted out of a Barbour. Regarding appearance, the SL Bedale has a shinier finish, the Ashby has a more matte finish. The Ashby is made in Tunisia, and the SL I couldn't find the made in tag, but the stitching overall is better in quality. The black corduroy is thinner wale in the Ashby and the throat piece is slightly larger. The zipper is larger in the Ashby, you can see it in the picture. Regarding the arm sweating and condensation, it is way worse in the SL, because of the elastic cuff that prevents breathability. I chose to keep the SL however, I might put in some grommets in the arm. The SL overall doesn't come across like a traditional Barbour but a more modern technical coat, it doesn't have the Barbour logo that the Ashby does on the left pocket.

I was tossing up between the Simonside, Commander and Bede in Navy.

You can see that those two are loose styled jackets. The commander is a lot closer to the chest.

 

Damn, I never knew shopping would be so hard. The Simonside has a great picture here:

That is a loose jacket - I doubt he had to size down. Also that is a medium weight jacket and has a rougher finish compared to the Bede.

 

Damn!

Both of them looks great. I think the SL is slimmer because of the Japanese market. Good posts. I think both coat will make a good modern coat.

Btw, do the SL have the elastic cotton cuffs like those in the classic Bedale?

Been seeing more and more Barbours in NYC, mainly Bedales/Beauforts. Especially many at the airports. What's the deal?

Barbour sizing is all over the map so you really have to try it on or look very closely at the measurements.
I'd just get the Commander if I were you. You should try and fit it like a sports coat rather than outerwear.

Those 2 have been on sale a lot lately at sites like JCrew and Macys so maybe that's contributing to it.

Bedales/Beauforts have always been very popular in NYC and are becoming increasingly so. They are good jackets and seen as British/preppy, which NYCers like

I'm I the only one seeing the irony in something made for the country being popular in the city?
post #2203 of 2480
One reason I prefer navy and black in the Bedale/Beaufort over olive is that every dude in NYC has an olive Bedale/Beaufort. I do have an olive Liddesdale, which is also gaining in popularity (style and color)

They don't call it the 'Concrete Jungle' for nothing.

 

Just as much mud is thrown up at you in the city, as it is in the country.
