Topic: Barbour sizing

Hi everyone,
I'd be interested in buying a Barbour Beacon 'Bedale' but the problem is, due to restrictions here in Italy, I can't go and try the stuff on. Luckily, I've found a deal on Internet. The only problem is the sizing.
For reference I'm 5ft10, 32 waist, 36 chest. Broader shoulders and slim yet muscular building. Do you think an S should go? I've searched for info and found that the Beacon line should be more slim fit compared to the traditional Bedale. Just in case, I also have a tailor, so it wouldn't be a problem for minors adjustments.

Thanks in advance

P.S. Do you have any experience about the Barbour 'Munro', always for the sizing?

Re: Barbour sizing

Hi not much help but Barbour sizing terrible. As a rule I would recommend to go up especially as you have someone who can alter for you.
Not much help sorry!

Re: Barbour sizing

This is a great question that I was thinking about this morning. I am thinking about purchasing one for myself, but I am more along the lines of a Large - XL, 44 inch chest and roughly 36/38 waist. Good luck!

I have purchased a Beacon for someone who is 5ft10, 31 waist, and 35 chest, slim shoulders and the Medium fits wonderfully.

Wonderful. Was it a 'Bedale' model or the Beacon Skyfall one if I may ask?

I'd go Medium..  I'm 5'9" Around 155 lbs..  31" waist..  38 chest.. And my ToKito Lodge jacket in M is pretty slim on me.

Hi Mattia,

I'm very similar in measurements to you, and have always gone with M for Barbour brand jackets; though I do not have personal experience with the ones you mention, I'm confident M should fit you well if you want a tailored fit. Many do prefer to size up to get better water protection if they are using the jacket in the country but that's not a good look in my opinion.

Good luck with your purchase!  ajb007/martini

Re: Barbour sizing

Thanks all for the help. Sorry if I keep asking, but as you can imagine I want to be absolutely sure before buying it. I've contacted my dealer about the sizing and he told me, given the Beacon line is a bit baggy, the S would be the best choice for me and still baggy in his opinion.
I've written to Barbour's official site too to have another opinion. What do you think?

Re: Barbour sizing

36 chest? Definitely a small.

Hi there I’m going to confuse things further!

I think you need a medium for the Beacon jacket. I’m 36-38 and a medium is quite snug on me.

Sometimes think I should have had a large ! Which ridiculous!

Good luck!

Re: Barbour sizing

The beacon was a tailored fit and I remember the advice was to size up with this jacket. I am usually a 46 inch chest and had to go with a XXL for this jacket.

Did you purchase the jacket in the end?

Having researched this particular model I agree a small does seem more appropriate, the Bedale is not a trim cut like the lutz or sport / To Ki To models are.

If you look on End Clothing they have this particular jacket on a model 6ft 1inches tall with a 35" chest and the medium looks rather spacious on him.

I just received my Lutz wax jacket in Medium and the fit is tailored but not tight, I can fit a thick jumper underneath for warmth.

I actually removed the throat latch and buckle too as:

1. Who's going to faff with a throat latch;
2. It looks alot more 'clean' and similar to the Skyfall original.

Anyway good luck!

Re: Barbour sizing

No in the end I've not bought it. I prefered to opt for a shirt by Mason and sons. Maybe in the future...
