post #2446 of 2655

Hey guys, I need some help please.  I have owned a Bedale classic for about three years now.  I love the jacket, but I wanted to try a Bedale SL to see how I liked the "trimmer" fit, so I ordered this jacket from Stuarts London: http://www.stuartslondon.com/coats-jackets-c23/jackets-c25/barbour-sl-bedale-olive-waxed-jacket-mwx0529ol3136-p8771/s37720.  I just received this olive Bedale and noticed immediately that it doesn't have that elastic wrist liner like my classic Bedale.  I thought all Bedal jackets had this elastic wrist liner underneath?  Did I order the wrong one?  I'm confused.  Thanks so much for your help.

 

By the way, I do like the fit of this SL compared to the boxier classic.  Having said that, the jacket doesn't seem near as "heavy" or "substantial" as my classic version.  So confused...

 

I actually went from a 38 in the classic to a 36 in the SL, so obviously that's a big difference.  I'm 5'9", 158 lbs, a 38"-40" chest, and a 31"-32" waist (athletic build I assume).

Cheapest I've seen in Canada. I just got one a few weeks ago, came to just south of $500 all in. Pleased with everything. Only do store credit for returns, so make sure you know your sizing first hand. Also, END clothing has them for around $400 I think, and they usually have 25% off sale stuff. That would make them pretty cheap, but prepare for the raping of a life time when it shows up at your door.

I have the same jacket. It's possible that none of the SL Bedales have the elastic cuffs, but I haven't been able to confirm one way or the other.

 

As for the jacket not being as "heavy" it's made from a lighter weight cloth (4 oz. as opposed to the usual 6). It has been said that this is for milder climates (such as Japan). I'm in LA so it's perfect for here. Not really a winter jacket unless you're layering.

Anybody interested in a size medium gladwell? Picked it up in that crazy club monaco sale. Doubt I'll ever wear it, would rather pass it on at cost + shipping to somebody here before putting it on ebay.

Ah, I see that now re the 4oz vs 6oz. I live in South Carolina, so I may be okay with a vest underneath. I'll have to think about that.

That's good to know mine isn't the only one without the elastic wristband. I assume it's like that on all of the SL Bedales then. I'll email the retailer and ask.

I'll likely keep it, as I really like the fit, but I do like the 6oz for when it gets a little colder. Thanks a bunch for the help!

Thanks, I should have noted I was looking for it in Navy. Updated my post.

Hello gents.

 

I am looking to make my first Barbour purchase and im stuck between the Sapper in Navy,and the Ashby in Olive.

 

I havent tried on the Sapper, but the Ashby fits perfectly, and i love the Olive waxed look to it.  I just wanted to get some insight on which is more versatile of the two.  The site lists the sapper as "Tailored Sapper Jacket".  Would that mean that its more fitted then the Ashby ? which is still loose at the hips ?

 

The Ashby that i tried fit exactly like this picture, but i was wearing a Tshirt under it.   Im sure i can fit a hoodie under it, arms might be tight, but there is enough room in the chest.

 

Anyways, just wanted to get some opinions about the two jackets and which one would be a good choice for my "First"

 

Cheers.

Our first batch of Barbour fall 2014 hit the shelves yesterday, and some new product ought to be online shortly. this Deus collabo is a highlight.

tough choice, either jacket is very handy as a shoulder season piece or a shell to layer under. th Ashby takes a liner which is handy when it gets cold, but realistically any under layer could serve the same purpose. I'd say it comes down to aethstetic mostly (and I like the sapper)
