I'm short guy 5'9" and 36 Beaufort is like a top coat in length to me
Really top coat? I'm only 5'5" and my Beaufort is nowhere close to top coat length. It hits about mid thigh for me. My topcoats are knee length or longer.

I got a Barbour jacket from someone who said they reproofed the jacket with a mix of parrafin and beeswax.  Now the jacket seems extremely stiff compared to other Barbour jackets.  What is the best way to remove the stiffness: by removing the wax, applying the Barbour thornproofing over the existing wax or just breaking it in?

Just wear it.

I agree. Some new Barbour jackets can be pretty stiff as well and you can sense how they begin to soften after a few wears.

@BLAUGRANA and @kentpope are right. The Beaufort is longer. I think it is fine for 40 Fahrenheit+ weather with a suit, but not sure how much lower I would dip than that. With a liner maybe down to 30, but definitely not colder than that for me.

Thanks everyone, very helpful.

I guess our preferences in topcoats may have played some tricks here. I like topcoats shorter in mid thigh. Beaufort ends right there too.

Has the Beaufort changed over time? They have raglan sleeves now, Farage's have shoulder seams.

I couldn't find any good sizing guide for the Sapper, nor could I find a jacket to try locally. So I ended up ordering both size small and medium. I hope this post might help others trying to figure out their Sapper size.

 

I'm 183cm/6 tall with a 102cm/40" chest. My jackets are all 48-50 EU/38-40 US. Medium usually fits me best, small if the garment is very loose.

 

The medium sapper turned out to be much too big. Small was the better size for me, still with plenty of room for layering underneath.

These photos are with the drawstring in the waist tighten quite a lot.

I have a Barbour Sapper, did you ask here about sizing? If you did, it must have passed me otherwise I would have told you. Looks good!

Nope, never asked. Thanks!
