    ended up wearing this jacket the way it looks here and fortunately the wax evened out. i guess the combination of gravity and motion resolved the problem. Jacket is also darkened a little bit. great stuff. what a wonderful jacket would love one in the navy

    for those of you using the warm liner. Do you hook the loop at the top of the jacket? Maybe I'm doing it wrong but when I do it feels like the jacket is being pulled upwards. I can feel the liner on my neck and it's not that comfortable. This is on a Bedale.

    But if I only zip it in the jacket and liner are all floppy when I take it off.

    Just my opinion, but it looks very technical and fly fishing specific. The outer fabric and color would look strange with a normal outfit, to say nothing of the mesh pocket. I also bet it fits like a tent (but that goes for a lot of Barbours).

    Reminds me of:

    Yes, its a Barbour sizing convention, for example the Dufflecoat has UK 40/ EU 48 and UK 42/ EU 50 (!), but be aware the Duffle has a very roomy fit. For example I am 183cm tall with around 85kg and normally fit EU 50 or 52, and fit easily within the UK 40/ EU 48, but the arms are way too short, to have a regular arm length I would need to take the UK 42/ EU 50, but this one has a ver wide chest, way too wide (even if I wear a suit underneath, I essentially could wear a shirt, sweater and a thick down jacket….).

    Fashion advice.

    I agree with the other poster, it just looks to technical to be worn casually.

    To each his own, though.

    And by "too technical" he means "asinine". :nodding:

    I have the Barbour Ashby in medium, and I am looking for the Polarquilt liner. Would you suggest getting the liner in the same size or size down?

    I have the Ashby in medium and sized down to a Small for the Liner. fits very well inside. I would try to find a store that carries them and try both a small and medium though.

    Hi ever body i'm edoardo from italy,i'm about to get my first bedale jacket from countryattire.com but i ve got some doubts regarding the size. Few days ago i tried a Beaufort on in a store (finding a bedale is not that easy in rome),it was a 36 and it looked fine,i looked at the sleeves in particular,since i know the Beaufort is longer than the bedale.so i was about to order a 36 but today i met a friend of mine Who was wearing a bedale;it was a vintage jacket (a105),same size of the Beaufort i tried on some days ago. He let me try it on but with my surprise i found it way smaller than the Beaufort (especially the sleeves were barely covering my wrists even if i was wearing only a t shirt). Now my question is: looking at the way the bedale fits me i think i could go even for a 38 but do you think i should "trust" the bedale fitting even if it is an old jacket?
    P.s. Sorry if my english wasn't so proper!! :D

    I would get the 36. Don't think only about sleeves but at full fitting, a large bedale could end up like a tent.

    Hi guys,

    Just got my barbour commander jacket and I'm very happy with it. However, it looks like the barbour x to ki to version had a detachable hood...which I would definitely appreciate. Does anyone know if getting a hood for the barbour commander jacket would be possible? Thanks.

    I doubt this would be possible without a custom tailoring job. IIRC, the to ki to version had a zipper around the collar that would connect to a hood (this zipper was removed in the movie skyfall even though bond was wearing the to ki to version).

    Hey guys,

    I am trying to figure out my size in the SL Bedale. Although it was very trim fit on me, I think the Ashby in size M would be the correct size for me. I also wear a size 38 in the Beaufort and Border, but I guess those models don't say much about what size I should go for in the SL Bedale...

    Thanks for your help!

    Cheers

    Edit: just to clarify, I am a bit worried that a size M SL Bedale will be too slim fitting... Or maybe I am wrong?
