I have an oppsited opinion. I'm about the same height and weight as yours, with a 36 chest and I've found small Ashby fits me quite well, not baggy nor slim. If I size down to xsmall the jacket won't be as practical as it's designed to be.
If you're looking for a more fitted look, I'd recommend you try their international line.

Thanks for weighing in. This is actually really helpful since I would be going for more of a traditional fit with this jacket (and to wear with layers), so this gives me a lot a hope that the small would work out. I think I'm actually going to bid on the jacket. Will post pictures if I get it. Cheers

If your Barbour jacket fits like spandex you're doing it wrong.

Is there much point getting a Beaufort now or would it be better to wait till after the summer? Is it too hot to wear in a typical British summer?

Update! So I decided to get the navy Ashby jacket from Ebay based on the advice from my fellow forumites. :cheers: It arrived today so I snapped some shots

This is my first Barbour. I'm thinking it needs a rewax as it looks really matte. Fit is pretty much what I was hoping for, with the exception of the sleeves being too long.  Any feedback would be welcome. Cheers all

Looks great!  I'm glad it worked out for you.  For reference here is my XS...

@Chulillo Thanks!  Yes that was Madrid. The second one is from the trophy room at the stadium.

Fit looks pretty spot on, except for the longish sleeves as you note.  Can easily get them shortened if you wish, though keep in mind not to go 'too' short on the sleeves.  My personal opinion is that a waxed Barbour's sleeve length should be purposefully on the longer side, similar to a trench, due to its weather protection purpose.

 

I see many wearing Barbour's with shirt sleeves poking out, which to me doesn't seem right.

Thanks for the good advice DJ.

Haha, that's right! I thought that second place looked familiar as well... but was not sure. Let's see what happens tomorrow!

Not sure if this is the appropriate place, but Macy's is currently having a summer sale with the Bedale and Beaufort among others included. Extra 20% off with code "SUMMER". Jackets come to about $260 and $210 respectively. Sale ends 6/14/16

That's one hell of a deal.

That is a good deal! I picked up my Beaufort off eBay NWT for more than that.
