post #511 of 2459

Need some quick help.  I'm considering a To Ki To Sporting Quilt and I'm unsure on sizing.  I'm a 43" chest with a 33" waist.  I take a Medium in most outerwear in general brands, a size 50 in Nigel Cabourn and a size Large (UK large) in Woolrich John Rich and Bros.  The To Ki To Sporting Quilt means I'd need an XL based on the chest measurements (as I can tell), but I'm concerned it will be big everywhere else such as the sleeve, shoulder, etc.  Anyone have any thoughts or know how these fit?

The Tokito stuff runs fairly slim by Barbour standards but I find it to be true to size. If you need a large or XL, i have both

What's the difference betwene Bedale, Beaufort, Bristol and Martindale?

 

Which wax jacket, that looks like the ones I mentioned, is the slimmest and shortest?

 

I'm 5'7'' and 120 lbs with a 35'' chest, and which size should I choose?

you would be size small I guess. Medium in barbour is about 40". Even the small might be big on you

I went to Sporting Life to try on different Barbour jackets, and they were all too big and boxy on me, even the Small and Size 34s :-(. The manager actually suggested I check out the ladies section. Ideas? I'm really skinny, and wear S in Gitman Bros.

barbour is english cut which is usually boxy. you wont get a taper fit in these coats

Hello (and sorry for my bad english):

This seems to be the correct thread.

 

About Barbour Fitting/Size:

 

I wear a Barbour Beauford in 36 and it fits very well.

Would the Barbour Duracotton Polarquilt fit best for me in Size S or eben XS?

 

Could anyone help me with this?

 

Thanks!

Barbour bedale comes in number sizes with 30" as the smallest size.

How good are Barbour at making wool coats? I'm looking to buy a wool coat for this winter and was considering Lindisfarne or Hatchlands. Are they worth the price? I'm a bit unsure on the quality as they are only 70 % wool and Barbour's main thing is wax.
Are there better options? (I live in Denmark and want to buy in UK/EU)
Thanks

What are peoples preferences between linsdale, langley and drigg?


Still want the merton...but want to see one in person before I spend over 400 on a jacket.

Is it lame to wear an International if I'm not a motorcyclist?

That depends.

Do you think it's lame to wear jeans if you're not a factory worker?

Do you think it's lame to wear a bomber jacket if you're not an airforce pilot?

How about a pea coat if you're not a sailor?

I wouldnt doubt their ability to make a well constructed coat, but in my experience their choice in fabric is something to be desired. I recently handled one of their duffel coats and the 80/20 blend (or maybe it was 70/30) was very stiff and not all that comfortable.

My guess is you would take a L in To Ki To. I wear a M in To Ki To. In the Ashby, an update fit of the Bedale, I wear a S. To Ki To is completely different sizing than the rest of the line. It's a beautiful and functional line. Good luck.

Those are all from the Classic line. The trimmer pieces are in the Heritage and Beacon Heritage lines. Check out the Ashby or Hidcote.
