    Steven Alan indicates to go down a size. What is the view of people here? I am always reluctant to size down on EG, but I have not tried any of the Barbour x EG collab jackets. I searched this thread and it seems some people sized down and others did not. Any updated views?

    Also, there is a big retail price discrepancy between US vs Euro stockists for this jacket. US stockists like Steven Alan show $1,199 retail whereas Euro stockists are in the US$700 to $800 range. The jackets are made in England so import duties and shipping account for some of the cost but a 50+% differential seems too high.

    i've always been in the camp of "i wear size L in EG every season and however the L fits that seasons is how it's intended to fit" BUT, with jackets, especially in the last season or two, I've been able to comfortably size down one full size. I can't speak to this particular garment, but it's not TOO far off to size down for a jacket.

    TTS gives a baggy fit. Sizing down was still good for a trim fit. These are definitely oversized a bit.

    Only time I could have sized down EG outerwear was with certain Highland parkas. Some fabrics made up so huge; others less so.

    So @timpoblete did you go TTS (your regular EG outerwear size) for the Barbour zip parka?

    I agree with that. Was just asking about the collab Barbour zip parka bc the retailer recommended sizing down and from the measurements, the jacket runs very big.

    Went TTS due to the Mrs.’s input. I fit pretty easily into one size down, where if I size down on mainline there’s no way I fit.

    Think it depends on how you wear EG. If you’re more for the trimmer fits, this certainly isn’t the trimmest it gets. I tend to go baggy all the time, so it was a natural choice for me.

    I find it ironic this patchwork style of bedford is called solid.
    All of the seams will really show after a few wears, will look too busy to my taste.
    Glad I grabbed a black doublecloth from FW season.
