    I picked up a Barbour Chelsea late last year in the UK - great jacket, but I sized up as the fit is rather slim (I am an L and got an XL) and it fits great. Weight is a bit heavier, so I would consider more of a late fall/winter coat.

    Prior to that, I got a Polo Richmond in black on sale at the end of the season. It is a bit shorter and lighter, so probably more of a casual or weekend jacket, but there are tons of details, construction is top notch, and I really dug it. Unfortunately, it ran slim..I got an L and it was close, but too tight in the chest and I realized I should have gotten an XL but I was traveling and missed the return window. Still sitting in my closet wit tags, so PM me if anyone is interested in it for the coming season.

    Hmm interesting. Did you size up so you could layer under it? Or is it really that snug? I wonder if ASOS will provide measurements. I don't want to have to send back to my proxy and re-proxy if I don't have to.

    I don't think that is so slim, is surely slim compared to classic quilted jacket, but have a strange fit, have large shoulders and back.

    I went size down, and wear it with lambswool sweaters, buttoning only mid button, and fits great.
    To wear with thick sweaters I prefer the Eskdale

    Depends on your taste.

    Saw this recently in a Charles Tyrwhitt catalogue, GBP 129 at the moment. Looks good, might see if I can find it in one of their stores to take a look at.

    ^^looks cool but I wonder about the quality from CT, especially up against Barbour. Let us know what you find out.

    "quality" is an overabused notion , especially for a casual piece like this.

    While I agree it is not nearly as tangible or important as it is in tailored goods, I have a couple Barbour coats that have had the crap kicked out of them and still look great. Inversely, I've also bought cheap jackets that end up failing me before the season is even over.

    The Barbour Chelsea Polarquilt is a slim-fit that looks great.

    I just picked up a Moleskin Liddesdale from Orvis a while back. I think the 'matte' look of this fabric makes it look a little richer than the standard Liddesdale. Maybe I'm just rationalizing the purchase though...

    My only beefs are that the 'leather' trim on the pockets looks a little cheap. That and there's some padding in the collar that makes it look a bit lumpy unless you turn it up.

    I find the Chelsea to be a bit thin for fall. Matt Fulham is pretty much the same jacket, only a bit warmer.

    Last year I picked up a Lavenham Dentson and I really like it a lot. I don't find it to be too boxy.
