Can anyone advise on Barbour sizing - I'm looking at buying one for my Mum but it looks like fitted.

She's normally a small 12, but wasn't sure how they size up.
Any advice much appreciated

I'm a 10 in most things but bought a 12 in the international. I can wear it with a jumper and zip it no problem.

The one you've linked looks fitted. I think I would be tempted to go up a size.

I think if she is a small 12 then you should get a 12.

If you read the reviews on the JL page it says that it comes up large.

I have this and I think it runs reasonably true to size. I'm a 10 and have a size 10 which has space for a jumper underneath but isn't loose at all. I had to size up to a 12 in the international as it was the other one on my list.

It is reasonably fitted, but definitely runs bigger than the biker style ones - I'd go for a 12 if your mum wears a 12.

Brilliant, thanks, I'll go with the 12

Agree, the fitted ones are really fitted so I would go up a size. I did and it was perfect.
