I love Barbour jackets…I now own 6 of them. My favorite is the Classic Bedale, but I've been looking for a slimmed down version. The Fishing Bedale is almost perfect. It's much tighter around the body, and the collar is much smaller than the Classic's. Overall, it's a much more modern fit. My only gripe is that there are too many pockets…and the zipper isn't as beefy. The Classic Bedale feels so much more understated.
