I'm sure sizing questions get covered ad nauseam here, but would love some direction.

Looking at that sale on END I can't pass up the Ashby.

So I've tried on the XL and it seemed to fit very well. However the Olive is of course sold out in XL. Looking at their measurements though it seems that there is barely any difference in the XXL. Can that be true? Could I get by with an XXL

I wear a 44 in most suits, 46 in slimmer cuts. I guess I'm an athletic cut, bigger upper body. Waist 35

Thanks for any help.

I'd stick with the XL. BTW, I see the XL olive in stock right now.

I think you bought the last one!

I'm a 44 too and no more :(

Friends don’t let friends buy Ashby’s. Get a 42 Beaufort or even a Bedale (or Sapper for that matter).
I’ve tried them on and honestly the Ashby looks the best on me.
In all seriousness what is the hate for you Barbour purists?

My guess is it's more fashion forward and less country-esque

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
