Barbour Wray Vest Review + Olive Fall Layers

Olive Fall Layers

I recently got this Barbour waterproof fleece lined for less at T.J. Maxx for about 50% off it’s full retail price (the vest is also available and Marshalls and Sierra for less in select colors and sizes). When first ordered the vest in two sizes to try in the olive color. Size US 2 / UK4 was too snug and size US 4 / UK 6 was sent to me in the wrong color (both my friend and I received a red vest even though we ordered US 4 / UK 6 in olive) so I was forced to return it which was fine anyway since the size was still pretty close fitting when fully zipped.

The Barbour Wray vest has a slim fit and runs one to two sizes smaller. I recently reordered this vest and I took size US 6 / UK10 so that I could layer comfortably underneath. The waist has button tabs as seen here so that you can button it for a more figure flattering fit. The measurements of US 6 / UK10 is as follows: 37″ chest, 33″ waist and 38″ before the start of the curved side hem, 25.5″ total length in the front and 26.5″ total length in the back.

If it’s helpful to see another fit reference from a popular retailer I reviewed a few J.Crew Factory vests here in size XXS regular.

Note that the black leggings above are actually full length on me (I’m 5′ 2.5″) but I used this helpful tip from Amanda to make the insteam shorter without any hemming.

The vest fits well underneath this thin jacket without adding any bulk. I’ve been slowly consolidating my clothes and I found the J.Crew jacket at the bottom of our coat closet. I moved it to the front so that I wouldn’t forget about it. Update 10/12: I noticed that the jacket is 40% off and ships free with the code GOBIG. Just a friendly reminder that J.Crew Cardmembers get an extra 20% off this month using the code CARDLOVE (exclusions apply).

Lastly, I spotted this moto jacket in the closet and I also found black  and cognac faux suede moto jackets that I’ve been hoarding in my coat collection. Over the weekend I filled up two ThredUp Clean Out bags and I sorted which items I want to keep and which ones I’ll list on Poshmark.

Thanks for stopping by!
