    Just tried rewaxing my Beaufort for the first time after 6 hours of drying it looks a little spotty. Do I just do it over again on the spots I missed? Some parts are still shiny like there is still too much wax in that area.

    i've been wearing my ashby non-stop recently, i love it. perfect body length at 6'1, i think a bedale would be too short.

    For some reason I thought they were the same length.

    I haven't measured them, but for me, there's no noticeable length difference Ashby and Bedale SL.
    Have not tried a standard Bedale though.

    the ashby is meant to be marginally longer, but only an inch or two.

    Anyone have any experience with sizing differences between the Commander & the Ashby/Bristol? I have the Commander in medium, and am considering purchasing a medium Bristol from Grailed. When I was originally shopping for a Barbour coat a few years back, I recall that the Commander sizing was a bit off compared to everything else. Any advice?

    I own a Beaufort and a Classic International both size 38, and a Transport size "M". I have tried the Commander and Ashby that are too snug for me in those sizes, so I had to size up to an "L" for a proper fit. In your case, I would buy an "M", the same size as the Commander, but with other models I would probably go for an "S".

    A little late to the party... wondering if anyone has any experience with the landrover "driver" jacket?
    Has a few of the features I like from the beacon/commander but seems more versatile in terms of fit/maneuverability/warmth layering/etc.

    Thoughts?

    Do you have a pic? I have the ToKiTo driving and it's great.

    Too many great jackets... only a few days in the year to wear them!

    I own the Land Rover Driver, it's great. The button out lining makes it very versatile, it's also slightly longer than many of the Tokito jackets and while fitted isn't skin-hugging, so it looks almost tailored on me. For reference I'm 6'3" and 40" chest and wear a large in the Driver.

    I also own the Shordace as well as a couple of other Barbours, but the Driver is easily my favorite.

    Anyone have the J Crew Derwent? Can someone check if it's made in England? Thanks!

    Quick question on reproofing my Barbour jacket. Instead of getting the Barbour wax can, would it be possible for me to use this substitute? It says it is for Filson's Oil Finish garments, so I wonder if there is any difference between theirs and Barbour's
