^^ I thought a small would fit you nicely. Wearing over suit without creasing the suit jacket is impossible due to high armhole as well as narrow shoulder . And it's too ragged looking to go over a suit .My medium fits nicely over shoulder as my shoulder is quite wide but waist below this jacket looks quite big. I will get my tailor to take in on the sides.

I was actually looking for a suit for a wedding. Want a charcoal Anthony RLBL . Any other recommendations ? Budget up to 1k. Really like a 2B and low buttoning point .

However, the suede exterior and the quilting make it look a bit different. I'm not sure if I really like the quilted suede effect - it makes it look a bit like a knight's doublet or gambeson or, I suppose, like a suede version of the quilted Barbour jackets that some people like to wear in cooler weather.

Was originally looking at Belstaff, but they're around $900 and I've gathered from a few articles like Die Workwear's that the prices have been hiked significantly since being bought out. My other option was the traditional Barbour International but the left chest pocket on a 45 degree angle is a large turn off. I did notice the other day that End have some new of the new Barbour International range in, which have a few jackets like the international sans the belt with normal pockets, and a more subtle patch. Will definitely be picking one up next time there is a sale on.

 

Thanks for the thoughts and links guys, belstaff could be a winner instead, although the ones linked by JM looked pretty good albeit it pricey.   

 

Yeah im with you fox the 45 degree pocket on the barbour throws it off bigtime.

You don't seem to be in a rush, so with that budget wouldn't you go suit shop or the like?

Is that the Barbour Duke you are referring to? They look so good. The tilted chest pocket was designed that way so that it is easier to get a map in and out of it when you are riding a bike - I don't mind it, but can see why it puts people off
