How do you go about getting dust off the jacket ?
I've taking the excess wax off with cloth and hair dryer and its left lint on it.
It’ll settle down eventually. Just wear the coat and you’ll be fine.

What have you guys done with the Barbour pin that comes with the jacket? Just out of interest

I've got a new with tags Corbridge size Medium that was purchased from House of Fraser. It's a bit too snug on me. Anyone interested before I send it back for a refund? If so, PM me.
Just wondering, have you gotten rid of the jacket or kept it? The Corbridge is supposed to feel more snug. I have both the Corbridge and Hereford in the same sizes, and the fit is significantly different.

Of course, if it's too tight, it's too tight.

I keep them all with the rest of random Barbour stuff.

How's the fit on this? I'm 5'7 and got a Bedale in size 36. Feels comfortable as hell but I perpetually question my fits.

A few more fit questions:
- are the arms always so huge? It makes me feel like I really need to work out more
- I wanted a more fitted look but not necessarily a too tight hipster look, would sizing down have looked better? I've got about an inch around my belly but my chest feels right on.
- Is the bottom of the jacket hitting the right spot? I don't want to look like I'm wearing a dress but at the same time, I know this isn't supposed to be that short.

Looks spot on to me. Length looks good on arms and body. Arms have some room so you can layer a sweater under the jacket

That looks great. Do not size down further. If anything I’d be inclined to size up.

Is this the Bedale ?
What size do you normally wear ?

The Barbour Bedale was designed to be comfortable for equestrian purposes, therefore it's short, with wide arms and an unconstrained body which gives an overall "loose" fit. For a more fitted look, there are other models to choose from, such as the Ashby. If you wanted a longer jacket, perhaps the Beaufort would be a better choice.

I think that your Bedale fits you well. As others have said, I wouldn't downsize. Probably I would go up a size just to provide more room for layering.
