Cleav,I had a look online at the Red Rum and I thought it was too short,then today I was in town and saw a Steve Mcqueen Harrington which although is shorter I rather liked,not at £200 though in fact I wouldn't have paid that for the Ashby,not worth it IMO.

Do you mean SMq Rexton? Far too much money and there are plenty of other negatives for me though I can see the attraction.

The Red Rum is much more understated in comparison but still doesn't completely float my boat. As I said interesting take on a theme though and regardless much better value, they can be gad at GB£175

Ah, not seen that one in the wild. Does look shorter, and still not floating...

When looking for that Look and silhouette I don't think waxed works, on the whole.

You are probably right,anything a bit "different" takes my eye,not always with great results.

Just finished rewaxing my International. Holy crap my back is killing me

It's a serious workout.. Ended up taking 2.5 hours, although the end result is well worth it!

Will post pics when I'm back home, but it just looks like a factory fresh Barbour now. When I finished the waxing and before I used the blow dryer, the waxed cotton was slick and looked almost like leather however!

Maybe there is someone out there who can help me out with sleeve length on a Barbour International. I've been scouring the web for 2 days trying to find out how long the sleeves are from shoulder to cuff on a 42. Any input would be awesome. Thanks!!

Does anyone know how the Durham's fit compares to the Bedale? I'm on the look out for a used one that I can reproof myself. I know some people are into doing that and I respect the hustle. My size 36 Bedale looks great on me but the sleeves are trimmer than some other models, and the raglan sleeves vibe with a roomier fit. I'm not sure how the shoulder cape on the Durham would play. Also, I tried on a Border in 36 once and I was swimming in it, so I'm never sure what to expect for fit. I'm really feeling the Durham's built-in hood, since I'm not into the attachable hoods you can buy separately at all.This is my bedale:

Sleeve length is from pit though.

Barbour site has sleeve length from center of back but they're also for the S-M-L-XL sized ones.

Thanks! So according to the site, it's 20.25" from the pit strait to the wrist?

I received purchased a durham, and have given it as much wear as I can. I'm thoroughly enjoying it and actually at times hoping for rain when I walk my dog. The build in hood is a great part of the coat, and even in heavy wind and rainfall it has stayed in place, kept me dry. I've worn it anyone from 1 to 2 Celsius and rain with a sweatshirt underneath, to 10-15 Celsius and still felt comfortable.


In terms of fit/size comparison to the Bedale, I can't give a direct comparison, as I've only tried on the beaufort. Based on measurements from Barbour's site however, the bedale and beaufort have similar chest, shoulder, back and sleeve length. The Bedale's back length is shorter however. The Durham's chest, and shoulder especially feels pretty close the beaufort, it is certainly quite a bit longer than the beaufort. It is I believe 4oz, and the bedale/beaufort are 6oz weight. The sleeves aren't overly wide, and you can cuff them to show the tartan lining, which kind of makes them narrow just a bit. It also has drawstrings to tighten the mid-section, which allow for a slightly snugger fit, but it still fits like a Barbour is meant to fit. It has a back vent than is fastened by two buttons, I guess it could come in handy for maneuvering around if your hunting or something. The shoulder cape just adds an extra barrier to block rain, I kind like the look, and it isn't something you see on a coat very often. To me, it looks exceedingly British. I love the jacket, and don't regret opting for it over a beaufort.

Hi all, I'm a southern Californian whose going over to Scotland for a year. I was considering getting a Barbour as an all purpose foul weather jacket. Are there any particular models I should consider and particular shops I should consider buying them at?
