Afaik, the 'classic' Beaufort is actually the one that doesn't have 'classic' in its name: the Beaufort Waxed jacket in Sage.

The Classic Beaufort Waxed jacket in Olive has a more matte appearance, i.e. it doesn't look as slick/shiny. It apparently doesn't age as well.

I prefer sylkoil - but both look good.

Our Norton & Sons gear is on the web. The linen / cotton sweaters in particular are wild - they feel heavy but you put them on and they're light as a feather.

Can anyone give some recommendations for a winter jacket? It's a bit early now, but I figured I might aswell start looking now. It needs to be warm so that I am able to commute on bike in -5 degrees Celsius (usually not lower, but wind factor due to biking does weigh in here).

I bought a Martindale and would wear it with a button down shirt, merino v neck and a scarf all winter. The coldest I wore it in was -20C here in Toronto.
Great insulated coat.

Does anyone have any thoughts, experience or views on the Barbour Warwick jacket? I think it's part of the upcoming Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. I have a sample in a large and am wanting to know a little bit more about it but can't find any info anywhere.
Info appreciated. Thanks

Would you say that the outlet has a good selection of outerwear for someone who normally wears a small?
Have you been to their outlet in Milford, NH?

I'm travelling to Boston for business and would like to know if I should make some time to take the rental car to one or both of these stores.

does any of you know which jacket fits slimmer?

 

- Ashby XS size

- Barbour Bedale SL Small size

- Barbour Bedale SL XS

 

Many thanks

I've the same question. I'm considering the SL in XS given the measurements from End Clothing, but still not sure which is the right buy without crossing over from slim to too small.

took an XL in barra and fit was good in shoulder. a little blousy in the body but has the side adjusters so no problem. love the enlarged collar, makes for a great neck funnel when throat is latched. i take a L in tokihito scott and XL in the oates
