I'd definitely go for a pair of tan or yellow peccary (or deerskin if you want to save $100) as they can be dressed up or down.Black or brown in kidskin are classic but I've gone for purple and green to be a bit different. I wear both with suits and they work great.
The top of the page with the mail form has a contact number, I've had to call about 6 times over the returning and resending of the jackets and they've picked up all but once. The DHL arrangements have, truth be told, taken more effort from me than Marrkt but they have agreed to foot the cost for the return as they sent it out after I had asked them not to (and it had made it to Zurich). I get the feeling they have been a bit overwhelmed for the first few days of the...
Well, I have gone with the advice on here and changed my order with Marrkt from 50 to 48. They had actually already sent out the 50 this morning but have agreed to recall it and send the smaller one. Good customer service right there. I'll post a fit report when it arrives. Cheers for all the sizing advice.
So the Kara Koram fits me perfectly in size 50. Is the concensus that the Geddes fits a full size larger? I have mailed marrkt to see if they could send me a 48 rather than the 50 that I bought. If it's a full size larger than the other Cabourn/Bauer pieces and they are happy to switch my order I will go with the 48. If it's just a bit bigger, I may stick with the 50. From reading here, I'm leaning towards the 48 but ln-cc had a picture of a much skinnier model than me...
Shit. Well, I'm 40" suit size just about, 42" in some lines and I have a 36" waist, so I'll stay hopeful. They still have a 48 at marrkt, so maybe I'll be able to swap if necessary.
Cheers but I kopped the 50. I stopped at a shop on the way home and tried on a different Bauer Cabourn parka in 50 and it fit perfectly so I'm hopeful about the one I got.
Am trying to get the Geddes in 50 (didni't want to risk waiting for an answer to my question above) but have been on the checkout page for about 15 min. I guess there a couple of others trying to buy at the moment. If the sale comes off and the 50 doesn't fit, it'll be on the B&S forum in a couple of days.
Am looking at the Nigel Cabourn Eddie Bauer Geddes US Clip Coat- Tan. I am a 40" normally so should I go for the 48, 50 or 52 in this? Anyone have experience with this jacket as to how it fits? I won't be wearing anything too chunky underneath and want it to fit well but not too snug.
Am interested in sizing info also. Will be looking to get a jacket when the sale opens in an hour or two and am a 40" to 41" suit jacket size. If I can get a parka or winter coat, should I go for 50 or 52?
Would be all over those Borrelli's like a rash if they were a size smaller...
