    I ordered a Barbour Chelsea Flyweight and received it yesterday. Not crazy about the fit - I sized down to XS and it works well in the shoulders, chest, and waist, but for some reason there is a bunch of excess material in the midsection, particularly at the back, that kind of poofs out in a weird way. Returning it.

    Went ahead and ordered this Barbour Steve McQueen Wax Beech jacket instead. Shipping from the UK so I've got my fingers crossed it fits. I love Barbour but hate how their sizing is so all over the place.

First, the sweaters fit much baggier compared to last year with a lot of extra room in the arms (sleeves) and lower arm holes. Secondly, the blazer is no longer lined in 100% acetate but 100% polyester. Joe stated it was the same wool/nylon blend for the shell, which is correct, but was incorrect when stating it still used the 100% acetate lining. So an FYI to anyone thinking of buying the slim fit merino wool sweaters or the tweed/wool blazers from JCF this season.

    Unfortunately both will be returned
    Wish I knew this yesterday with the blazer. Oh well.

    This just came from eBay. I wanted a peacoat in something other than charcoal or navy, and found this JCrew Dock in "dried olive." Like new condition with Thinsulate lining for $65.

    Nice pickup! I bought one of those two years ago when J Crew offered them. One word of caution... the buttons are not sewn on well. About half of the buttons on mine loosened to the point of nearly falling off. As a result, I ended up re-attaching all of them as remedy and prevention for the ones that hadn't started to fall off yet.

    Thanks! I'm pretty pleased with it. I did notice that about the buttons. Right off the bat I thought they seemed finicky. I'm contemplating changing them. I'm not real fond of anchor buttons.

    I wish I could find one of those Banana Republic Bridge Coats from a few years back. They seemed to be a big deal on the threads but I don't remember any purchases and they don't seem to be easy to comeby second hand.

    Bravo, that's a stupid good price. Was that from a private seller or an e-thrift storefront?

    Really like that color. Tried on a Dock last year and unfortunately it runs just a bit too long for me. Would LOVE it if J Crew brought back the bayswater in that color.

    @Rocco it was a private seller from Southern California. I'm guessing they didn't have much use for it....
    @Rawfull it is a little longer than your traditional peacoat I believe. I think JCrew describes it as such. Hits me high on thigh as opposed to just covering my seat.

    I was thinking about having the waist brought in a touch. But does anyone know if that alteration is possible with the Thinsulate lining?

    @Rawfull there's a handful of the Bayswater floating around on ebay. Definitely has a slimmer silhouette than the Dock.
    @JBarwick I can hardly find anything on that coat. What's it look like?
