    Has anyone picked up the Tokito Beacon Sports jacket? Can anyone comment on sizing? I'm pretty much a Medium on most brands (ie Epaulet, Gitman) and prefer the slimmer fit so I ordered a Medium.

    I am looking for a Classic Beaufort in olive, size 34.
    Any chance to get my hands on it for less than GBP235 including shipping to Germany?

    I picked mine up for $265 shipped on eBay from a US seller selling to me in the US. Not sure how that complicates the equation though.

    If you're a medium in brands like j.crew, ralph lauren, gant, etc., then I'd go for a large. If you need measurements let me know.

    Yeah i'd love some measurements. I mean, I can wear medium in J.crew, but I can also wear small in some of their shirts. I think Medium in Epaulet is something closer to my fit. Also depends if I want to layer with it... I was really thinking I'd only wear it with 2 thin layers, no thick sweaters.

    Several Barbour retailers were recently accepting pre-orders on those for a Springtime 2013 restock. If you didn't get on the bandwagon then you may have missed out permanently - not sure they'll do it again.

    On another note, can anyone tell me how to get pork fat out of waxed cotton :embar:
