    Just got one of the RRL dress shirts on eBay. Fit is really really nice with the sizing up of 1.

    I keep going back and forth on whether to order the Bedale on the JCrew sale or get the RRL Hunting jacket on this sale. The RRL sale ends tonight, so need to decide soon. I know that the RRL will fit me better in a large and I can't decide on the sizing for the Bedale. Would a 42 Barbour match up to an RRL large?

    I want the RRL more, but it's $170 extra.

    You could always order both and return one. Ralph online returns are free.

    But consider this. The supply of that particular RRL jacket is finite. Large is the last size they have listed online.
    Sure, there's probably some floating around the stores but you'll need a salesperson to track one down for you.

    The supply of Barbour Bedales, even at 25% off, is approaching infinity.

    Good advice and exactly what I was looking for. I ordered the RRL.

    Damn, I dropped $1,800 on this sale and that's AFTER returning the Marlow wingtips.

    I ordered a pair of the Brown Low Straights that are on sale on the polo.com website. They arrived and I noticed that they are slimmer than my usual Low Straights (I have several pairs). The pockets also look a little smaller.

    Is that possible? Does that normally happen?

    I have this peacoat and love it. It's much better than the RL Academy version in that it's modeled after older WWII peacoats that used thick kersey wool specifically designed to repel high winds and water when on the deck of a ship. The military later switched to melton wool, which is what you normally see in vintage stores today and while nice, it isn't as wind/water resistant due to its looser weave. The RRL repro kersey wool is thicker and effectively repels Chicago winter winds that tear through my other wool coats. It doesn't drape as well as finer wool due to its stiffness, but for wind/rain/snow resistance it's like woolen armor.  Layered with a sweater I've never owned anything warmer.

    Does the peacoat have a gigantic embroidery on the interior? I remember the RRL one from FW08 did, and it was sick
