My 2c on F/W 12 pocket knit sizing: I ordered two in XL (navy and 'black and grey') and the navy fits significantly bigger - p2p, arm length, longer in the body. No idea if this is the norm or I got some sort of rogue size in the black and grey.
not exactlyan update to what i said before:I bought another pair of ns size 32 from matches that arrived today (previous pair were from oki ni) and they fit significantly bigger. waist is 17" laid flat and can do all the buttons up.also about a half inch difference in the size is of the leg opening: 7.75" vs 8.25"not a fan of this wider hem size - all my old pairs of ns 32 are closer to at the moment apc sizing seems a bit of a lottery depending where you buy from....

many thanks slide
could anyone tell me how the field parker fits relative to the bedford? I needed to size up to an XL on my S/S11 bedford and from what I've read this season's bedford fits similarly. Am I likely to need the same size (XL) in the field parker?
