    They usually have a sale Memorial day.



    Since posting this, I've received a handful of proxy requests. In the past I've declined, but am willing to proxy if anyone is interested. The above items all had at least one of each size available S-XL. The St. Kilda and Dragh had 1-2 XXL.

    PM me and we can work out the details.

    Enjoy! If you have time, the NH Factory Outlet is just over an hour away from Kittery.

    YMMV, but I just noticed the Barbour Blast jackets at JCrew in Toronto (Eaton Center location) are 40% off $450, so $270.

    There was a full range of sizes as of 15 minutes ago.

    The Ashby is a trimmer version of the Bedale so I doubt you'll like it better.

    Thanks for the reply. Is the bedale shorter?

    I think they're the same length.

    This is about the slimmest fitting Bedale variant: http://www.barbour.com/All-Collecti...s=mens-heritage&breadcrumbs=mens-waxedjackets

    Some people find sizing down on the standard bedale works well (they're designed for a thick sweater underneath), but you risk the sleeves being too short if you go down to far.

    That's a very interesting thought.... I certainly wouldn't be worried about the sleeves being too short... I could pretty much lop off the entire corduroy section and be fine. (The jacket is QUITE long on me I think). In the picture below I have my sleeves rolled twice.

    I don't seem to see the fishing bedale in an XS and I'm already at a small so there doesn't seem to be an opportunity to size down any further. The other thing is that I think this jacket fits reasonably well in the shoulders, it's just the length and chest that are out of proportion for me....

    I don't know... what do you all think?

    You could try to find a Japanese market Bedale SL.
    They're supposedly a bit shorter in addition to being slimmer.
    End carries some.

    Another interesting idea. As a side note... which of the zip-in liners fit the ashby? They all seem to fit the beaufort or bedale and if the ashby is slimmer it seems like the liner would also be slimmer?

    Hi,

    Just joined here. Is this a US based site / thread? or just general? Not sure, I am in the UK.

    I have an Ursula jacket that I bought during it's limited run. I read that it was a Small fit so went for the Medium (I'm slim so often take a 36 in the jackets and suits, etc.) but it's a little on the big side for me. My International is a Small (36) and fits me perfectly, so if they are the same fit I should have gone for the Small.

    Anyway here's the long shot; anyone have a small Ursula in excellent condition that they would want to swap for a Medium???

    I won't hold my breath! But if there's anything out there......

    Hey dreamsburndown,

    I have a Durham in 36, and although I also can't comment on the Bedale, It shouldn't be such a big fit looking at your photo. I am slim, 5' 10" and it fits me nice and slim, although it's not quite 'fitted'. With the sleeves however, personally I like them short with my undergarment cuff extending, so I turn them up (at the risk of looking a hipster twat) as they are also not neatly fitted. The cuffs do have pop buttons on them, but sometimes good to have it a bit loose and free. I think the style of the jacket should be a bit more relaxed that perhaps a Bedale or Beaufort, as it's more of a throw-on rain jacket. The permanent hood is a good feature. I have had mine for 10 years and it's the one Barbour I would not sell on.

    Hope this helps.

    That looks like a good fit. The length doesn't look too excessive, and it fits on your shoulders really well. Not sure if the look of it would change if you zipped it up. You probably are going to have to accept the larger than usual chest size. For me, it works, as I've been able to layer underneath and stay warm. I really value just how versatile Barbour's are, and the trade off is not having a more tailored fit/feel. The more rainfall I go through the more the jacket appears to be molding a bit to my body, making the jacket appear to be more fitted and conforming.

    These jackets aren't supposed to sit at the waist like a bomber, so the length looks perfect to me. The sleeves are too long as you know, but being 5'6", most jackets' sleeves are probably too long on you anyway, so that's to be expected.

    I just bought a navy Ashby on sale from John Lewis. It was marked down by £80. So far I am very happy with the jacket. I bought a large, and while I have not worn it with a thicker sweater yet, it seems to be the perfect size for me.

    Not that this will change my opinion of the jacket, but where is the tag which says where it was made? I found the tag in the pocket but it does not say there. I haven't been able to find any other hidden tags.

    Only the classic Barbours are guaranteed to be made in the UK, others are manufactured all over the place, with a lot of production in Eastern Europe. In terms of production quality I've not noticed any difference in country of manufacture.

    No I don't work for Barbour (I do own about 5 of their coats though). The information on where they manufacture is quite easy to find, and walking into any major Barbour retailer will show you only the classic models - Beaufort, standard Bedale etc. have prominent Made in England labels.
