They had the British Millerain oilcloth field jacket in carob, but I think Black is the call.
It's all about the cargo green. carob's alright but a bit of a weird brown. black would be a bit boring especially since oilcloth is so much about the wear you break into it, at least romantically speaking.
also, at first i found the fit to be boxy in the chest and the sleeves to be, in typical j crew style, absurdly long. the boxy huge chest was particularly weird because the bottom is pretty slim. I've since worn mine enough that the chest has calmed down (doesn't billow out at the armpits) and drapes better now that the oilcloth is broken in. the sleeves are a still a bit meh but i turn them up or just deal. I want to replace the velcro on the cuffs with buttons though. and i will.
