Yes, the jacket is a 3-roll-2 with patch pockets. It has unstructured shoulders, but there is still canvassing in the body. I don't know enough about suiting to say if that qualifies as unstructured. In any case, it is my first jacket without any sort of padding in the shoulders and I'm sort of in love with it. It has a lot of great movement, but the Harris tweed is really hefty and so the jacket still has a really great drape. I have another jacket that has patch pockets but it is a wool/silk/linen blend and the fabric is so thin that I have this fear that I'm going to punch through the pockets if I put anything in them. This jacket feels burly and solid.

In case anyone's on the fence, I just realized that I've worn the Loden Field Jacket almost every day since I got it. Best clothing purchase in a while

Care to share the sizing of the vest with me, I'm eyeing one but have never bought any of their shirts. Am a 46 at Taylor Stitch.

I'm a solid 42 Chest and went XL and the fit is great.  Adjustment strap in the middle back to dial in

I'm a 38 and the medium vest works well.

I quite like the field jacket, but am slightly put off by the upper pockets being slanted. Is this just to add a bit of style to the jacket or does the slanted pocket have any sort of historical precedence?

I wouldn't speak for Mike and his design intentions, but the EPLA Field Jacket's slanted pockets remind me of the slanted chest pockets one sees on historic jackets of the waxed varieties that have a motorcycling heritage. If I recall correctly, the slants are designed so that riders can more easily take out items from pockets (maybe racing goggles?) while hunched over. Historic jackets would include items like the Barbour International and the Belstaff Trialmaster.

Was wearing my first EP purchase today, BD shirt. Still going strong after so many washes. It's about 4 years old.

Most of my Ep shirts make me feel like they'll be kicking around for years.

 

Steel, are you ready? It's almost MA-1 time :cheers:

You are a scholarly gentleman, B. I thought the field jacket was related to the m65, which has upright chest pockets. Didn't realize the wwii era jackets had slanted pockets. #themoreyouknow

I seem to be devolving into Reigning Champ sweatshirts and EP horsehides on the daily, and Don is really going the other direction! Killing it lately

Picked up the Gable's in Navy Marl last night from the LES store. I sized up 1 from my Walt size (and just noticed I may have purchased the final pair of 35's so kind of psyched I pulled the trigger). The Grey flannel in 35 was a little tight and would have required letting out the waist a little but the Navy fit perfectly. While I don't plan on wearing them with suspenders Dylan mentioned that if you plan on doing so you should alter the length of the pants accordingly as they may hike up the pants a little more than expected. The fabric is awesome as expected and can't wait to try them out.
