Tailored sapper is quite nice. That would be my choice of the two.

I have an Ashby and I absolutely hate the sleeve lining. It traps sweat too much. I'm thinking of taking it to a tailor and replacing it with something more breathable. Is this a feasible alteration?

I too love how the Tailored Sapper looks, but i only have the option for the navy one.  For whatever reason, im just stuck on the Olive color from the Ashby.  Ill try to get some pictures up of both, to help with the fit on them.  Would they fit similar ? or will the Sapper be more fitted if you will?

That's funny, because I sent the SL Bedale back because (1) I wanted the 6oz versus the 4oz and (2) I prefer the sleeve lining and elastic wrist.  It just keeps the jacket off of my hands, especially when digging into oysters or pulled pork!  :slayer:

I really liked the fit of the SL Bedale but, as I stated above, I wanted something a little thicker in the 6oz. Since I returned the SL Bedale, I'm strongly considering selling my Classic Bedale and grabbing either the Ashby or the Sapper in olive.  I'm leaning towards the Ashby because it's the same as my Classic Bedale but slimmer, and I've heard some prefer the hand pockets of the Ashby/Bedale over the Sapper, but I keep going back and forth.  I've never tried on either, so I'm also interested in the fit comparison between the two.

 

Also, I'm having issues with sizing the Commander jacket like many others on here.  I ordered the small and subsequently sold it because it was slightly too snug in the chest, although the arm length was almost perfect.  I just received the Commander in a medium in both navy and olive, and I think I'm going to keep the olive and sell the navy although the sleeves are at least an inch too long so I'm doing some research to see how much it will cost me to have that tailored.  If it's ridiculously expensive to shorten the sleeves, then I'll sell both the olive and navy Commander I just bought.

What is the "Ecowax" finish? Similar to Thornproof or Sylkoil or something new entirely?

Have a size L that i had tailored last year, waist and sleeves to be narrower. Will sell to you for much cheaper because it no longer fits me (gained too much weight). Seriously never wore it, got it tailored because the waist and sleeves were way to boxy at the time. My chest measurement then was 42 and weight 185lb arms 15.5 flexed, now I'm a 46 at 200lbs arms 16.5 flexed. Would sell it to you for dirt cheap because theres no way I'd be able to sell it on ebay. If you want pics just let me know.

Hey Albert, I know the feeling. Unfortunately since it doesn't have an elastic wrist band, it'll be the better compared to a Barbour with an elastic wrist band. I kept the SL Bedale and it traps heat like a greenhouse. A member ZOG got in contact with barbour UK and he got his jacket back within a month (very quick turnaround time for them), with the sleeve linings replaced so that's an option. Hope that helped.

Thanks. I checked out the Barbour website and noticed they offer to replace the upper lining for an absurd price of $90. But honestly I love the fit and styling of the Ashby so I may just go that route. I'll email them to see what fabrics are available for replacement.

Anyone got the waxed baseball cap? Any comments? Wears warm? Wears cool? Fits well?
