    That looks fine to me. Although the Ashby is slimmer, it's not MC jacket tight. Personally, I don't think that would work so well with waxed cotton. There is a guy I see a handful of time at Trader Joe's and he's hard to miss because of the horizontal stress lines (magnified by the faded wax) of his Ashby. You can have enough room for a sweater and a vest on yours so that should work.

    seriously considering getting my ashby sleeves (poly liner) removed. then it can be a 3.5 season jacket! i really don't understand why ashby's and bedale's aren't identical aside from fit...so annoying not to be able to get exactly what you want.

    good photo showing the diff. ashby collar isn't as aggressively large, is slimmer, and has the corduroy sleeves.

    Frankly, Barbour stuff--the classics anyway--are utilitarian. My life revolves around a New England university campus, so roughly 1/3rd of the year I'm more concerned with staving off rain, sleet, snow, and wind than with whether the collar is too large (if anything, the large collar is welcome, especially combined with the wire-rimmed hood!). I just don't see Barbour as much of a summer item, and spring only barely. I would really advocate for considering what weather you're dealing with in thinking about which jacket to get.

    I agree but still find it funny that they have this outfit on the official website.
