dusty, is the wool thick or thin? say compared to a standard issue Navy peacoat.

The black Bedford is wool and just as thick as the herringbone. The navy and the brown are some form of thick canvas or cotton and slimmer material-wise, but stiffer than the wools.

And as for the nylon, yeah, I guess it does make sense that it should add a little durability.

Thanks I'm pretty happy about it too. Unfortunately we're having a warm trend right now, so won't be able to break it in for a couple days.

As for the cotton bedfords, I was about to get the brown one instead of the black wool, because the fit's so much better on them, in my opinion. The padding on the wool ones aren't as slimming, in fact, actually make me look a little wider in the body than normal. But I figured that I was in a cold, foggy area and I'd make more use out of the warmer coat.

someone needs to inform Barney's that it's not "garments engineered"!

Definitely thin compared to a peacoat. I'd say it's closer to sportjacket wool than outerwear wool, but it has a great Thinsulate lining with quilted acetate which makes the whole thing significantly thicker than a standard blazer.

That navy jacket is really cool Jet. The other stuff is pretty

I know there's lots of EG fans on here, but that's one brand I just don't get the appeal of

Thanks for the post JET. Too bad none of this stuff is in my size. (except the shorts, but I don't wear shorts that often, even in the summer).
post #43 of 46
Hmm, the button just fell off my Bedford and I haven't even worn it yet.
post #44 of 46
Damn, better check my buttons too.

You guys crack me up.

Jeff, timpo

I did come up, it was even less than that. Gary happened to tell me about it while on the phone.

GS,

That stuff might be appealing to different people, everyone's different you know. I don't like all of their stuff, I don't think anyone likes any designer's entire line-up but I think a lot of their outerwear and shirts are on point. You know how the weather is here, I wanted a slim and light jacket I could use to layer that was my idea of ideal streetwear. I think in today's marketplace, eg quality ranks very high. It was a workwear appeal that I like as well but with a twist. I also happen to love field jackets and the details/look of this one made me pick it up, not to mention the price. I've become so sick and tired of mediocre merchandise that is overpriced for no reason and when I look at the tag, it's made in some developing country.
