I have a sizing question. I wear a size 40 in Beaufort, would a Medium be the right fit in Bedale? I can't try the Bedale in person and the seller does not accept returns.

I own a "Beaufort" size 38 and a Barbour "Transport" size "M", so I believe that you should go for the "L" if you want to have the same fit, Medum would be tighter.

This is the Barbour "Transport", size "M":

But my question is about Bedale sizing not Transport sizing based on my Size 40 Beaufort.

I understand, I am just comparing different models trying to be helpful.

My reply suggests that you might go with an “L” with the Bedale if your Beaufort is 40 (they fit very similar), as my Beaufort is 38 and my other Barbour jackets are “M”: I assume that this size would be too tight for you.

In other words, 38 is equivalent to Medium, 40 is equivalent to Large with the Barbour classic models.

Medium is Barbour terms is 38/40 so too should be good to go.

Can you ask the buyer to take some chest measurements? Pit to pit? Then could compare to your Beaufort.

I always went along the line as a Medium is 38-40 chest (the beauforts/bedale to have around 4inchs (i think) chest tolerance though.

forgot to post an update on my beaufort: it arrived about a fortnight ago and fits well in a size 40. the sleeves are a bit too short and i hate the velcro cuffs, but overall it fits better than my ashby (although my medium ashby has perfect length sleeves). the game pocket on the back is surprisingly super useful. i'm 6'1/80kg for reference.

Don’t hate the Velcro cuffs.

This is an all around killer outfit. White’s Semi Dress boots in dress brown? What jeans are those? And shirt, while I’m asking?

Hi all, would love some help picking out the right Barbour. I recently tried on the Newcastle in size L and really liked how heavy and warm it was. However, I’d much prefer a traditional Bedale-style collar, and wouldn’t mind if it was a touch shorter as well. Does anyone know which Barbour jackets fit that’s description? Thanks!

What are barbour shirts length like? Wanted some to wear casually untucked. Do they do a shorter style shirt?

Only ones I’ve tried are to long to be left untucked, wear size large tailored fit
