Am I misinterpreting what I'm seeing? Look at the bottom right picture: it looks 1/2 or 3/4 lined.

if the herringbone Norfolk is anything like the cord Norfolk that i bought (and subsequently returned), it is half-lined. quoting my own review of the corduroy version:

"it's made out of a relatively thick corduroy, half-lined in the body, fully-lined in the sleeves. it is definitely cut short. three button (if you don't count the little flap that gets buttoned in the middle). there's a surprisingly low gorge unless you button the top button. 5 outside pockets one buttoned interior pocket. it runs fairly true to size. i'm 5' 10", 185lb and the M fit great even with two layers (t-shirt and polo is what i tried) underneath."

ah, sorry guys, you're right. it isn't fully lined. I didn't notice that when I tried it on.

The cotton versions fit slightly larger than the wool versions, especially around the shoulders. It does run fairly close to true size. However, I fit into a medium (wool versions of the) Bedford and Engineer pretty well, but with some space in the torso (all Engineered Garments pieces are meant to take layering - see the website as an example), but fitted in the shoulders and with little space in the arms, and I am 5'11" and 150 lbs (+/- 2 lbs depending on time of day/hydration levels). How the jackets will fit you depends a lot on your body shape, which is not really adequately described by just you height and weight. For reference, this years Engineer jacket fit me perfectly through the shoulders, with some extra space (deliberate) through the torso, and I have a 39 chest and a (true) 30 inch waist (which means that a 30 waist pair of jeans using hangs low on my hips). See pics in What are you wearing to see.) I tried on the smalls, but they were uncomfortably tight in the shoulders.

Um, I just wanted to note that Engineered Garments pieces are generally not made to be super fitted, and the outerwear, in particular, is meant for layering.

Unless the piece is really, really oversized, I would recommend that you guys not tailor it. You should be able to fit a bulky sweater or sweatshirt or maybe a quilted vest underneath comfortably. Check out the lookbook. Of course, you can wear the piece however you like. Just that the design is on purpose.

Oh I realize that. My problem is that the only jeans I wear regularly right now are my New standards which are pretty tight and wearing the bedford made me look V-shaped. also it isn't going to be form fitting at all, even after alterations. It was quite large on my skinny frame EDIT- also my bedford doesn't have the clasp at the neck so I think it might be from last season

those are great shots of the jacket.... I'm happy with it. It is not fully lined and probably wouldn't keep me warm under 40 degrees weather. It is not super-slim, but I would definetly say its fitted. the overall cut makes for quite a nice silhouette. The buttons are a little annoying to use....

God I want one of these jackets so bad.

The one I got is actually, I think, called the "work jacket", very similar to the Engineer jacket, but with a slighhtly different neckline and should detail and construction. It is made out of thick, heavy boiled wool, and will definitely be good with a hoodie or sweater down well under the freezing point. As for the "workman's cut"... see, this is where wearing looser jeans has it's advantages
