barbour international - Page 3

post #31 of 159
I'm not super huge into branding on clothes, so the barbour patch was a little bit of an eyesore for me at first. After actually purchasing it, though, I think it adds character to the jacket. You can wear brands because you really want people to see those Rock&Republics with your Affliction shirt, or you can wear brands because that's the way they are (ala Barbour, Levis, etc).

I think a lot of it depends on your intention. Are you wanting to sport the history, or wanting to say how much you splashed out for your coat?

Just random thoughts though.

Plus, the majority of the population has no idea that Barbour even exists, so you should be fine anyways.

Beaufort w/zip in pile liner really is warm enough for all but the coldest days....I am curious about that Orvis "insulated down winter jacket" as my local Orvis (boston) doesn't carry them. Haven't checked on the Newbury Barbour but looks like a nice jacket with the blatant logo of the International.

Yeah if youre talking about this one - http://www.orvis.com/store/product.aspx?pf_id=3C96, i had never seen it before, but it looks pretty badass and warm as fuck.

I might go for the international for the next few months and if it freezes, will go for this beast, or a beaufort/bedale with lining.

For anybody who has one of these, how did you size it? Barbour states these as having a chest tolerance of 10 inches (38 actually measures 48). I've read elsewhere that it is 8". I'm a 39" chest and want it to fit slim, without having to use the belt. Any ideas if I should go for the 36 or 38?

Here are some measurements for the slim fit international if you are looking for something more fitted. There are measurements for the original international posted there as well.

36 for sure. i have 25" (32" if you're going by tailor measurements) arms and the 36 fits perfect. i also have a 39" chest.

That's sizing down quite a lot. I've read that people have sized up with the international bc its already a slimmer fit. I'm about a 38/39" chest and had Orvis order me a 38 to try on.

Thanks. This is what I was thinking considering the 10" chest tolerance.

Let us know how it fits after you try it on.

Sorry never checked back until today.

I bought it online from the uk.
They were willing to cover posing it back one time for a size change but it all worked out ok.

Just updating in case anyone else is wondering about sizing.

The original Barbour International - the A7 (8oz cotton with shiny brass press studs) is sized in inches and is pretty spot on size wise ie. I'm a 42-44" in a suit and the 42" was slim but not tight.

There are several other versions of the Barbour International (memory cloth, metallic, 6oz wax, 4oz wax etc.) and these are sized in S, M, L, XL etc. These are smaller than most Barbours in the same stated size e.g. Sapper, Trooper etc. If you're a Large in the Trooper for example you'll probably want to go up to the XL in the relevant Barbour International, but cut does vary between the different versions slightly.

^ I agree. I wear a 42 coat and my A7 is a 40. That said, it's a little boxy but I don't think I could have gotten in a 38. Funny thing is I bought it to ride but I just got a properly armored motorcycle jacket so i haven't even worn the Barbour. Safety trumps style in this case. Waxed cotton in a fall wouldn't be much good. Thing is, I feel strange about wearing it while not riding but it's a nice coat so I have to give it a shot.

Has anyone here tried the trails (slimmer version) of the international? If so is it even slim?

Check out Hiltons Tent City on Friend St by The Garden. They have a great selection of Barbour and carry the Intl jacket. Plus they are usually cheaper than Barbour on Newbury or Orvis.
