I think that´s another reason to try before buying. My International has a perfect sleeve length, but I´m kinda short (5'8¨).

Pinchi what size did you end up ordering?

 

I am 5'8 and 145lbs. I think the 34 fits me the best. I plan on using it as a spring/fall jacket so layering will be minimal

Just to let everyone know ...in Canada?? that Club Monaco had some Barbours for a few months now and they are on Sale!

I picked up an International yesterday - dropped from 419 to 299 Canadian.

Sizing was spot on - 40 in a suit - 40 fitted perfectly in the International.

I am 5,10 and about 170lbs.smile.gif

I have a L (44-46) for sale on ebay. I'd keep it if it fit. The waxed cotton almost feels like leather in terms of weight and stiffness.




If you have a really tight budget,  Peregrine Clothing's TT Jacket is perfect. Its made of British Millerain waxed cotton. Its the perfect three season jacket thinks to its moto inspired heritage:

Authentically English and I have one!

Try Peregrine Clothing in the UK. They make excellent jackets of decent quality. You can't go wrong with them.

I have it in Medium. It´s a bit snug, but just right for me.

Thought I'd add to this thread. I picked this International up on ebay last week for £130. It arrived looking like this;

But I had to speed up the aging process - after a deep breath and a 'to hell with it' attitude I put it into the washing machine at 40 degrees, no soap. The result is great and I'm really pleased with it now - It shrunk just a touch and now fits perfectly in the arms, which before were just a bit too long. It's also got a more distressed look and feel about it - A good start I think, I'll wear it thorough this summer then re-wax come Autumn.

You know the thing they (barbour) keep saying, don't wash warm or with detergents etc.. Not that I have, but the same goes for applying too much wax, which I must've done.. It can stain the lining with wax (which it did).

Along the seams around the sleeves the lining has a darker colour, obviously from the wax.

Just purchased a royal blue Barbour international steve mcqueen edition. 
Heard talking about the belt, how some choose to "tie the belt at the back of the jacket" or something? 

As I am not too fan of the belt yet, I'd really like to see how that could look like.
