I got my olive Beaufort from Cox the Saddler in the UK: https://www.saddler.co.uk/

They delivered from UK to US no problem, I imagine they could deliver to Aus as well

They also sell at UK prices, which tend to be a bit better than international prices, even with the currency exchange

What's a good Barbour to get started with? Looking for something classic but not too old man. I do have a Belstaff Trailmster jacket in black so I don't want to replicate that either. I'm usually a 44 but I want something that I can layer but not be too big on its own. There are so many options it can get a bit confusing.

I'd personally go with a bedale. It's fairly roomy in the chest to allow for layering plus it's not too long so feels a bit more modern. I have an Ashby, it's more fitted cousin, and I find it works well with a sweater under it. I know people wear bedales over tailoring so really depends on how you intend to wear it

Second this. Have purchased from Cox (for US delivery) a number of times and have always been pleased with the pricing and turnaround. Plus, they’re quite nice and professional if you ever have to address anything by phone / email.

Other good experiences for Barbour - House of Bruar and House of Fraser (latter in pure Ecommerce fashion - no interaction other than clicking on a website). UK pricing, fast turnaround.

hi everyone, I see that this topic is frequented by quite a few shoe topic friends.
I have owned a Barbour Lutz jacket for some time, it fits me perfectly in size L, there I would absolutely like to take a waxed cotton one, either the Bedale or an Ashby, I tried in a store a while ago Ashby in L and she also fits me perfectly, unfortunately they sold everything...
would you have a good plan to buy some on the internet? even if bitter brexit, delivery to France is too complicated in addition to the application of taxes , paradoxically it is less complicated to buy on a us store than an English store!
I know the Ashby and the slim version of the Bidale, but which do you personally prefer? if I have to take a Bidale, should I take size 40 instead?

I would prefer to go with size 38, as the Bedale has a more relaxed fit that the Ashby, size 40 only if you intend to use it over a sports jacket, Pitti Uomo style. I own a Beaufort and an International A7, both size 38, a Transport size "M" and I have tried the Ashby in size "L", as the "M" is too tight for me.
