Really prefer this jacket to the Bedale and Beaufort, especially the collar. I am a size 44-46 chest, tried on a few Barbour jackets in large at the local Orvis and they fit well, maybe a bit tight in the shoulders. Would like this to fit somewhat slim. Should I go L or XL. For reference, I am 6'4" ~225.
I've always liked the look of this jacket as well. I assumed it wasn't a waxed cotton until reading the description, so thanks for the reminder. I'll have to stop by the Orvis in Faneuil Hall next week and take a look.
The Boston Saks has had some Barbours in the sale outerwear racks. Not sure of the specific model but Bedale/Beaufort style: corduroy collar, waxed, navy for sure and I think some olive. Might not be much left after a couple weekends of additional markdowns.
P.S either nordstrom or bloomingdales was selling a black beaufort online size 38 for like $275ish if anyone is interested....must have started carrying them this year
I think barbour is trying to push its product into the U.S. because I have seen a lot of department stores and other brands carrying them, such as Club Monaco, Barney's, Bloomingdales, and others. Barbour has also opened a new shop in SOHO earlier this year.
