    I've always liked the look of this jacket as well. I assumed it wasn't a waxed cotton until reading the description, so thanks for the reminder. I'll have to stop by the Orvis in Faneuil Hall next week and take a look.

    The Boston Saks has had some Barbours in the sale outerwear racks. Not sure of the specific model but Bedale/Beaufort style: corduroy collar, waxed, navy for sure and I think some olive. Might not be much left after a couple weekends of additional markdowns.

    I think barbour is trying to push its product into the U.S. because I have seen a lot of department stores and other brands carrying them, such as Club Monaco, Barney's, Bloomingdales, and others. Barbour has also opened a new shop in SOHO earlier this year.

    Where are these Club Monacos? The only Barbour I've seen in a Club Monaco lately is the International.

    Sorry, not the dollar amount, but they were on the 30% off rack - not sure if there were prior markdowns. The discounts keep changing though, a few weeks back it was 50% on the clearance outerwear.

    I would call ahead. The Orvis here in Atlanta did not have any in stock. A few places online have them on a decent discount 20-25%. Still not sure if I have the money to grab one right now and if I should go large or xl.

    Ah, thanks TV, that explains it, no such luck up here in the great white north, not even the flagship on Bloor in Toronto has ashbys.

    Did barbour make a womens version of the Bedale... I found one on Ebay in a 36 but it is listened as a womens, the seller said something about where the zipper is placed? I thought these jackets were unisexed!

    Just a quick question on care for an International A7-

    I know it's "sponge only" officially, and that's all fine and dandy for the outer shell. How do you clean the interior lining? I've had the jacket for almost two years, have sponged it down, have rewaxed it by hand, but I've never really considered cleaning the interior.

    How best do others manage?

    I just sponge down Barbour linings - they never seem to get too bad anyway.

    Went to try on the Heritage Liddesdale today. The XS was a bit tight on me, but the sleeves were too long! They didn't have a size S in store for me to try, but I'm thinking of buying it online and then having the the sleeves shortened. Anyone ever tried this?
