    Thanks for your reply.

    Well I tried and took the pictures with a wool sweater underneath the jackets. the small couldnt accept the wool sweater + a jeans jacket or a down linner without looking too tight. I do have the feeling that even with only a wool sweater, the back near armpits are a bit tight.
    The bigger one can easily accomodate every layers, but with a simple shirt/t-shirt underneath it looks in my opinion too big.

    do you have any others advice or opinion on my case ?

    SF family, which should I get? Navy or Olive for my first Ashby jacket?

    The Olive up there looks great.

    I agree with this but its crazy how much more popular olive is over sage these days.

    If only Barbour did any of the slim fits (Ashby/Bristol) in Sage, I'd jump on that.

    Word. Also what's this stuff I hear about the new sage being different from the old sage (pre-2004)? Is that true or is it the same shade?

    I own a medium and it fits snug in the shoulders but could be taken in a bit at the sides. I am a very slim 6' 2'' and 155LBS, but generally wear a 38 jacket. The medium might fit well in the shoulders, but where it tends to get boxy is in the waist, which would likely be the case with a large.

    That's about regular price if you could still buy Barbour from the UK for delivery in the US.
    But since the UK retailers who ship Barbour to the US has pretty much dried up, that's not a bad price.

    As an FYI, Nordstrom's has the Ashby for $299. And having ordered the Ashby from J Crew, Bloomingdales and Nordstroms in an attempt to get the fit right, the Ashby from Nordstroms is the slimmest cut (it is a special "Barbour for Nordstrom" version).

    A tempting offer. Thought about pulling the trigger on the small but ultimately had to pass.

    I got my Ashby from Nordstrom last year for around $200. I don't recall any specific detailing that would make it a "Nordstrom special" but I didn't try on Ashbys from other retailers.

    If you want a slim fit go with the SL Bedale, Aspecto, a UK retailer has them.

    I think tropics knows what EU is. I think OmniscientCause was trying to say retailer.

    yeah i got it, i was joking around.
    i checked around a few places. don't see much less than $300 or so equivalent and to avoid the headache / potential customs i think i will go bloomingdales.
    thanks for the suggestions.
