    • Trying on the Beaufort my wife got me.

      • Looks great [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION]. The Beaufort is on my wish list. Knowing you're in TN and have similar temps to us here in NC, what temps does it seem best for? Also, how did you find the sizing to be?

          It was 52* this morning and I felt fine in the jacket. I feel temps in the 30s would be ok with just a dress shirt and under shirt. If it got colder I would either layer or buy the liner to add. For sizing, I sized down as I knew I would not be wearing a sport or suit jacket underneath this. That would have been really warm. If you want to wear a sport coat underneath, I would say buy your normal size.

          For the best deals, END Clothing is potentially your best bet but they do not offer the sage or olive color. My wife went with sage to match her jacket. Since my mother in law goes to Europe regularly, my wife got this from Country Attire which offers the best deals but doesn't ship to the US.

          • Looking good [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION] While I am not a fan of winter temps (give me summer any day) I do appreciate the fall weather as a chance to layer up and wear warm clothes. Nicely done.

            • [MENTION=12077]DapperedHoo[/MENTION] Barbour waxed coats are designed to be a rain shell for the cool, damp climate of the UK. Think upper 30s to lower 60s, rain and wet snow. They provide little warmth by themselves but they are fine for moderate cold with a mid layer like a quilted jacket or a thick sweater. Once you get to freezing temps and below, the Barbour isn't a particularly useful piece of outerwear since its main feature is its water resistance.

                • If you are concerned about fit or worried about guessing with sizing, you might consider the Ashby as an alternative to the Beaufort. It is basically the same jacket but offered in slightly more tailored, true-to-size S/M/L sizing. I usually wear 36R jackets and a small Ashby fits me fine either on its own or over a suit jacket.

                  I think the sleeves on the Ashby are slightly longer as well, which might be helpful if you are concerned about the sleeves getting too short if you size down with a Beaufort.

                  • I don't have the sleeve issue when sizing down. I guess I should note I have the Beaufort and not the Beaufort Classic which is more boxy from what I have read and deserves the distinction. While the Beaufort never seems to go on sale, every other Barbour item seems to.

                          I was wondering the same, sweaters take up a ton of space!

                            This is definitely accurate but for the Bedale and not the Beaufort. The Ashby is a riff on the shorter Bedale equestrian jacket, while the Beaufort is longer, long enough to cover a blazer if one so chooses. I’ve got both a Bedale and an Ashby and the Bedale definitely trends boxier with shorter sleeves. I’m a 38 in most jackets and went with a 38 Bedale, M in the Ashby.

                            [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION], is your Beaufort made in England?

                              Yea. Aren't all Beauforts Made in England and some of the other jackets are elsewhere? I also got a hood with mine so it all ages at the same time. Next want is a waxed hat...just don't want to spend $50 on a hat.

                                In the walk in closet? I hang all my cardigans, shawl sweaters, other thick/bulky sweaters.
