I don't think they make a ton of money, but it has a weird corporate sheen that EG, in general, does not. Vans is owned by VF which owns SF favorites like Rock & Republic and 7 for All Mankind. http://www.vfc.com/brands/outdoor-action-sports/vansPlus, the sneakerhead hype...I could be wrong but are they US-made, at least?
I feel like the Vans collab is the one thing that EG does purely for profit. Or maybe I just don't get the sneakerhead ethos.
Blah. I ordered that exact jacket from ToJ -- guess seeing your photos is the closest I'll get to seeing it...good luck with sale.
Just adding a data point to the discussion: Petit Standard can be a tiny bit looser fit than the Petit New Standard -- even though in certain sizes the measurements are exactly the same.

I wear a 32 or 33 in pants and went with a 32 in PS, the nonstretch fabric. The 33 PNS was way too big in the waist; the 32 was too tight in the thighs and...

That's true -- France is a deeply conservative country in a lot of ways, at least in public.
Yup. Sandwichs (no "e") are OK provided they're classic jambon/fromage/beurre.Would delete gyros/kebab and coffee from that list, actually. I slug my morning coffee on the metro from a thermos mug and get dirty looks every day.
As a (transplanted) Parisian, I'd say you can recognize the city's style pretty easily: For old guys, it's one or two piece that are totally incongruent, but they're worn with an IDGAF attitude so it works. Like a bright red scarf with a business suit, or a crazy overcoat and green shoes. For middle-aged conservative guys, it's stuff that's really well tailored and completely coordinated. Very sleek.
