    Mostly just fit. Ashby is a slimmer fit. There are probably some differences in the details depending upon year.
    There's also the Bedale SL which is a slim fit Bedale originally made for the Asia market I think.

    Ashby is slimmer, different corduroy, no ribbed cuffs, slightly longer, synthetic sleeve liners, and hidden side vent buttons.

    Not sure if they are exclusively make in UK.

    I bought a used but not a used Beaufort off eBay last week, but the sleeves are shorter than expected. I’m thinking about flipping it and buying another with longer sleeves, but the patina on this coat is impeccable.

    Suggestions?

    You can get Barbour to lengthen the sleeves, but you will be able to tell they were lengthened and they won't be patinaed and will likely not match your patinaed jacket. I'd probably just get one that fits better and patina it with my own wear.

    That’s what I’m thinking of doing.:uhoh: It’s the classic Beaufort in black, but is now charcoal and brown due to wear; Looks amazing.

    Looks good, but so “unbarbour”

    Posters have definitely complained in the past that their ashbys were not made in UK. Mine was though.
