    New to this thread - just acquired a Beaufort second-hand. It might be third or fourth-hand now that I look at it. It looks good for the age - probably 20 years old if the first two digits of inner size tag really tells the age. When did Barbour stop using “A230” as the item number?

    Can you post pictures? I can tell you the exact age from there.

    So after 2015 they stopped calling it a230? Also, did they used to make these with shorter sleeves? I know Barbour jackets are meant to have shorter sleeves for shooting and such but this one had ~18” sleeve seam pit to cuff while newer ones seem to have another inch or two. Thanks for info!

    To be honest, who knows? I just know basic info. I wouldn't worry about the numbers, they're all Beauforts!

    -23c in dry weather is more tolerable than -10c in humid areas, for sure.

    Anyone know whether it's easier to find a "Made in England" Ashby in, well, England? I'm headed to London in the fall.

    I don’t think so. Didn’t see a single one when I was looking for mine

    Ah, okay. That's disappointing.

    Did you end up finding an Ashby that was made in England?
