    How is the quality of this hooded bedale jacket?
    It is made of 72% polyester, and 28% cotton

    I prefer this to classic, because in my area it rains a lot, and it gives a younger look

    It’ll be good quality. But get a wax, it’ll be around a lot longer.

    You're right, but I'm still a 23-year-old, is not it going to sound very formal to me?

    I like the classic bedale, but is it possible to incorporate a hood in it?

    Hey all. I’ve brought two Barbour off eBay recently. One is a bedale size 44chest (looks a few years old)

    One is a classic bedale size 42 (looks almost new)

    Now the classic bedale, even though a smaller chest is approx 1 1/2 inches longer in the body?

    Am I being silly? I thought the classic and nornle should fit the same?

    The old(shorter) may have been altered of course, but really doesn’t look so

    Hi guys, I have a brown Beaufort in size 34, brand new with tags, up for sale if anyone is interested, for $300. Shipping from Toronto, Canada at cost.
    https://www.styleforum.net/buyandsell/barbour-beaufort-size-34-brown.10617/

    If you're in Toronto, also willing to meet up at Lakeshore and Bathurst in the evenings.

    I've had to finally admit to myself it's not suited to my build type.

    I do indeed, but I've sold a lot of my collection in recent months. 15 jackets & multiple accessories were taking up too much space so now I'm collecting really old vintage pieces. These are the pieces coming (seller pics)

    I mainly buy to resell these days and keep the ancient items for myself.

    4 is still decent after the purge. I agree, it’s one jacket that has alluded me for quite some time. It’s be a struggle to pass on if it fits, that’s for sure. I’ll do a blog post on it regardless.

    Yep, I have the lightweight ashby, sapper, quilted Powell and a bedale thst I’m going to keep. Trying to sell a classic bedale and a Beaufort, the classics bedale is one size to big and as much as I like the Beaufort I jsut don’t use it, and prefer the shorter bedale
