    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!
