    Nice trade man. I too have a vintage gamefair with the 'stank'. What size do you have on? I'm 6'1'' 200 lbs with a 43 chest and the 40'' gamefair is like a tent on me. I rewaxed mine and it turned out pretty nice. Looks like a matte green leather now :confused:

    Hey guys, I'm on the hunt for the Plan B Commander in size L. Let me know if you happen to have one and are looking to get rid of it. Thanks!

    Thanks! It's a C38, and I'm 5'8" 160, with a 38" chest...it's definitely too big to wear just over a shirt or something, but with a chunky Aran over an OCBD like I have in that photo, the fit is pretty good (thought still a bit roomy). I do prefer a more fitted look usually, but considering the stank, I'm only planning on using it when I'm truly "out in the field" and less around town, so can live with a looser fit (which actually looks better with the fuller cut denim and bean boots I'm wearing).

    I just rewaxed it yesterday - will try to post photos sometime soon - I'm actually very happy with how it turned out, it took me about 2 hours to do, but after hitting with a blowdryer and letting hang overnight in a warm room it's evened out pretty well and while it's not quite factory level, it's good enough for a foul-weather beater piece.

    Strange question, but have any fellas out there tried getting a Beadnell instead of a Bedale in order to get a slightly slimmer fit?

    Or does the Beadnell have too much shaping to look masculine?

    I tried on a couple of Barbours when I was in Europe recently and they just looked like a big green box on me...

    Along with that slimmer fit you'll get snap closures on the wrong side.

    Look into the new polo line and get the Argon. It's a waxed jacket that is significantly slimmer than the bedale and beaufort.

    I can live with that... would it have a noticeably feminine shape to the jacket?

    Just received my bedale back from the factory and I had asked them to repair a tear, rewax, and add a leather trim to the bottom hem. The repair exceeded my expectation and turned out to be much cheaper than what a local tailor would have charged. Here are some pictures of the repair and bonus bag:

    They additionally tightened up some loose threads and got this 16 year old jacket back to prime shape.

    ^ yes it's the cotton finish that differs not the wax.
