Hello all, this is my first post in the style forum. Got my 75th anniversary Barbour International from fedex on Thursday. I was able to find it online in the UK for much less than jcrew's price point. Although that's not to say it wasn't without it's hassles. Since I had never tried on an International I had no idea what type of sizing to expect. After researching different forums I decided to size up because I thought maybe they would run small.
Usually I wear between a 40R and 42R depending on the style of jacket. I decided to roll the dice and take a chance on a size 44. Yeah...it was quite large. Luckily the people at the store I ordered it from were very helpful. Word to the wise, these jackets run large. I wanted a more form fitting fit so I actually went with 38. It fits well, a little tight in the arm pits, but I attribute that more to fact that I'm hard to fit(40R-42R with a 33-34 waist). Overall I like it a lot.
Anyone else get one of these 75th anniversary jackets?
