    The Classic line is boxy. You will get a slim fit in the Heritage and Beacon Heritage lines. It's not so much that the Classic line is boxy, either. It just runs big. Try going down a size or two from what you normally wear.

    Which of the traditional wax jackets (that looks like Beaufort) are Heritage or Beacon Heritage?

    Even the Small in Wessex was too big for me, and that's part of the Heritage line.

    Heads up:

    Bloomingdales.com has waxed A7 internationals on sale for 209.50
    I signed up for their Loyallist program and its another $25 off with free shipping.
    so thats $185 shipped for a new A7.

    limited sizes but a hell of a deal

    edit: ebates will give you another $11 off (6%)

    ordered the jcrew equestrian bedale in navy. Hope it's dark navy like in the pics or I'm gonna be disappointed. Would have got the black, but I find black barbours always fade out to a dull navy color

    I know this is a barbour thread, but I recently tried on a great jacket from Polo. http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13214891 It looks amazing in person, the web doesn't seem to do it justice. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with Polo quality when it comes to waxed cotton, especially vs Barbour, which was my original choice.

    Thanks

    So I bought the Barbour x To Ki To Sports Jacket. Getting it on Tuesday so needless to say I'm pretty damn excited. I tried it on in the NYC SoHo store and found it fit pretty slim so I went for an XL. I was surprised when the saleslady told me that Tokhito Yoshida actually doesn't have anything to do with the brand anymore... Apparently they just use his name or something?

    And Dave, keep stalking out those New England Barbour sources, you seem to have been finding some pretty sweet stuff recently!

    I bought the RRL Oilcloth Hunting Jacket a year ago. It's a great design and it attracted me because it looked more contemporary than the Barbour equivalent (Bedale / Beaufort). It was expensive though and it came "washed" which meant that, after a year of consistent wear (especially over the mild autumn, winter and spring), it got really quite tatty. I would suggest that the Barbour would be a safer option as they excel in both warranty and general maintenance. Just my $0.02.

    How's Barbour for sweaters? Not a lot of talk about the sweaters in this thread. Love the look of the fair isles on End right now.

    They have a lot of really nice sweaters. I have a few of one of the Fair Isles at the moment and its great. Keeping one for myself
