    Weird fit - 12/2/2014
    By:

    Something strange about the sizing around the shoulders - relative to any other Barbour product I have, this just fit oddly (too big in shoulders, but fine through the torso?) - too bad though, because the combination of quilted insulation and waxed outersurface would have been ideal...

    Very satisfied - 11/29/2014
    By: from southern Delaware

    I normally wear a wool pea coat in winter but wanted something more fitted, with less bulk but also looked good. I am 5"10, 180 pounds, slim to athletic build. I ordered a large which fit perfect. It has a more tapered look than the other barn jacket styles. The jacket feels lightweight although it is plenty warm. Would definitely recommend.

    Too Samll - 10/27/2014
    By:

    Very nice jacket, but sizing is small. The jacket was fit perfect in the waist, but was too small through the shoulders. If you are skinny this jacket will fit, if you have an athletic build it will not.

    Excellent Quality!!!! - 10/22/2014
    By: from the Bluegrass State

    Little snug versus a same size item from Orvis but overall an excellent quality jacket from across the pond! Would recommend Barbour's outerwear to anyone!! Not too mention, Orvis Customer Service is second to none!

    Very Inaccurate Sizing - 10/22/2014
    By: from Seattle, WA

    2nd time trying a Barbour jacket. The sizing is terribly inaccurate. I'm 6'2, 200 lbs. I wear a 16 1/2, 35 dress shirt, and a size 43 suit jacket. Nothing out of the ordinary about my size. I ordered an XL, which, according to Barbour's sizing chart, should have been too large for me. It was way too snug around the chest -- I felt like I was wearing a sausage casing. When I reached out to shake hands, the edge of the sleeve was half way up my forearm. You would have to be 5'10, and 150 lbs. for this to fit properly. Note to Barbour - update your sizing patterns the the 21st century.

    Great quality! - 10/18/2014
    By: from Minneapolis, MN

    This is a classic Barbour jacket. Great quality that I know will last forever. Probably not warm enough for the really cold winters in Minnesota.

    Great trim fit - 9/30/2014
    By:

    Upon initial delivery, the Prestbury is a high quality jacket. The materials are excellent, with good stitching and nice touches such as the quality leather trim and the soft touch pocket linings. I am 6'3" and 185 lbs, and the size L is an excellent fit through the shoulders and body - I have a hard time finding trim fit jackets and this one looks great. I am having to have the sleeves lengthed, but this is a service common for Barbour products. Overall, excellent coat out of the box, can't wait to put some wear on it and see how it fares.

Size Charts for Men's Clothing

Since 1894, J. Barbour & Sons have produced clothes perfectly suited to life in the country. Their quality, durable clothing is cut for an active lifestyle and the fit varies according to each garment's design and purpose.

The sizing of Barbour’s clothing is divided into four segments:

  • Heritage: slightly fitted, vintage cut
  • Contemporary: A slim—but not fitted—cut
  • Sporting: an active cut for comfort in the field
  • Classic: traditional, fuller cut

In the case of Barbour outerwear, sizing takes into account the appropriate layers beneath. That means you do not need to order a size up for a comfortable fit.

Barbour

Since 1894, J. Barbour & Sons have produced clothes perfectly suited to enjoyment of life beyond the city. It is this commitment to quality and durability that has seen the name Barbour become synonymous with the best of country living.

The beginning of Barbour jackets

In 1894 John Barbour established himself in the burgeoning port of South Shields, supplying oilskins and other garments to protect the growing community of sailors, fishermen, rivermen and dockers from the worst of the North Sea weather.

Within a few years the firm became the leading supplier of oilskins on the north east coast, not only to seafarers but to others in the surrounding country - farmers, labourers, carters, shepherds - who earned their living outdoors in all weathers. By the beginning of the next century Barbour’s durable Beacon oilskins were well known throughout Britain and beyond.

The legendary durability of Barbour jackets

If there’s one feature that distinguishes Barbour jackets more than any other, it is their legendary durability. But, given the quality of materials used—genuine long-staple Egyptian cotton, solid brass studs, substantial metal zips, plus painstaking quality of construction with an average of 15,000 stitches and up to two hundred components—perhaps it’s hardly surprising.

The seams in a Barbour oiled cotton jacket are double rolled, each stitched through two thicknesses of fabric. It is an intricate part of the manufacture and it ensures that the seams are completely waterproof. Even the thread is treated with the same secret watertight proofing formula as the fabric itself.

How long a Barbour jacket will last very much depends on its use (or rather abuse in many cases). Undoubtedly, owners expect much more of a Barbour than any other garment because Barbour enables them to do more. They will subject themselves and their jackets to the severest conditions of weather, mud, animal contact and abrasion than they could ever contemplate if wearing anything less robust.

Repair & Care

Reproofing Your Barbour Waxed Cotton Jacket

The Barbour Sporting Classic Beaufort Jacket
The Barbour Sporting Classic Beaufort Jacket: A jacket that will last for years — even decades — with yearly reproofing.

Your Barbour Jacket — A Great Value that Lasts for Years

With regular reproofing your waxed cotton Barbour jacket will remain waterproof through many years of faithful wear—Barbour receives vintage jackets of thirty, forty, even fifty years of service for reproofing and repair.

Reproofing: the Process that Preserves the Outstanding Quality of Your Jacket

Waxed cotton is made waterproof by impregnating the cotton fabric with a wax specially formulated for the maximum water-resistant qualities. Also called oiling, waxing, redressing, or waterproofing, reproofing is the process of re-applying the wax to keep your jacket fully waterproof and wind resistant. Reproofing helps to protect your favourite jacket from severe elements while rejuvenating and restoring the garment, thus prolonging its years of effectiveness.

Yearly Reproofing Is Best

It’s best to reproof your jacket yearly, especially if you subject it to robust use in the field, where regular conditions include heavy weather, mud, and abrasion. Garments should be cleaned with cold or lukewarm water to remove any mud or debris before being brought in for reproofing. Simply hose down or rinse in a shower, using a soft brush to remove any mud or debris.

How to Submit Your Jacket to Barbour for Reproofing

We highly recommend that you bring your Barbour jacket in to your local Orvis store when it needs repair or treatment. Our retail associates will be happy to take down your information and send your jacket off to Barbour’s UK headquarters for reproofing.

Find your Orvis store here

If you don’t have an Orvis store near you, the Barbour website has a form for requesting reproofing as well. For more information, please visit: Barbour Repairs & Reproofing.
