    What's funny is that I went back to the exact page with one click. Which did you end up buying? I was leaning towards the quilted but when I called up my local Barbour store, they said the pile was warmer but also I don't know if I would like the look of the pile or te feel of it

    Anyone have a recommendation on a UK proxy? The barbour jacket I'm looking to buy doesn't appear to be available in the U.S. I found the jacket on a UK website, but the vendor doesn't accommodate U.S. purchases/shipping.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm looking to move on a barbour x tokito hidcote but I'm unsure of sizing. I take an XL in the Tokito Sports jacket I'm guessing the hidcote would be the same?

    I am still waiting on a deal on the polarquilt liner. I think I can get some use out of it as outerwear. Don't think I can do the same with the pile liner.

    Just purchased an Ashby as my first Barbour jacket this year. It looks slimmer from the outside as you're wearing it, but there's still room on the inside. I just wore it with a wool sweater and it wasn't too tight. It's not as boxy as Bedale. I really enjoy the look and room of the Ashby, and I might get a liner in the future. Good Luck!

    Has anyone picked up the Tokito Beacon Sports jacket? Can anyone comment on sizing? I'm pretty much a Medium on most brands (ie Epaulet, Gitman) and prefer the slimmer fit so I ordered a Medium.

    I am looking for a Classic Beaufort in olive, size 34.
    Any chance to get my hands on it for less than GBP235 including shipping to Germany?

    I picked mine up for $265 shipped on eBay from a US seller selling to me in the US. Not sure how that complicates the equation though.

    If you're a medium in brands like j.crew, ralph lauren, gant, etc., then I'd go for a large. If you need measurements let me know.

    Yeah i'd love some measurements. I mean, I can wear medium in J.crew, but I can also wear small in some of their shirts. I think Medium in Epaulet is something closer to my fit. Also depends if I want to layer with it... I was really thinking I'd only wear it with 2 thin layers, no thick sweaters.

    Several Barbour retailers were recently accepting pre-orders on those for a Springtime 2013 restock. If you didn't get on the bandwagon then you may have missed out permanently - not sure they'll do it again.

    On another note, can anyone tell me how to get pork fat out of waxed cotton :embar:
