    Barbour is a huge thing in Britain. It's also a class signifier there, signifying upper class. If you have English clients the Barbour is definitely a good move.

    Bedale went to sport-coat length. Beaufort went to mid-thigh which wasn't flattering. I just got a compliment from one of my English clients that was in town today. Funny how this jacket sticks out with such a classic style.

    How tall are you Tom? I'm looking at the Beaufort and Bedale as well... I found one of their Barbour x Tokito motorcycle jackets for cheap on eBay:

    But I was thinking of looking to see if I could find a Beaufort or Bedale in the spring when it's warmer and more rainy than snowy.

    For whatever reason my order with J Crew didn't go through. It's probably a good thing, as I found the Beauford to be too long from me when I went to Orvis today.


    I ended up getting the Bedale instead and really like it. Also picked up the scarf and I'll let you guys know how things go!

    My bad, J Crew. They also sell Alden which I was surprised by.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. To my surprise, I stumbled upon the Barbour Beaufort Jacket today while shopping online. I took advantage of the 25% Cyber Monday promo and ended up saving $100 on it. I'm taking a guess on how the fit will be but seems like a good deal.

    Thanks, Jason. I really like both, good call. I'll need to swing by Orvis and check out the fit. I may check out LL Bean as well as they seem like they are pretty similar themed.

    Or the waxed quilted jacket which is right at $500:

    How about a Barbour Beaufort with the zip in liner?

    Winter Jacket Suggestions?



    Hi Guys,


    I'm currently sporting a classic navy Ben Sherman Pea Coat for the cold Chicago winters but I'm looking for something a bit more warm for the sub-20's.


    I had a very large Marmot down jacket that was the warmest thing I ever owned. Unfortunately it also made me look like the staypuff marshmallow man.


    I am a huge fan of down and was wondering if you have any fashion-friendly ideas. There are so many low-quality jackets out there that it's been frustrating looking. Ideally I'd like a trim, down jacket, that would look good enough to wear in the office along with casual wear.


    Thanks dudes,


    Tom
