Doubt anything I get at this stage is returnable... what is the sleeve length, from shoulder on a medium sized parka... I need about 23.75" ~ 24 ...?

Anyone know where I can get the Knit Back Vest in Charcoal size Medium?

My parka is a large so I can't help, but I can tell you that these are raglan sleeve so there really isn't any way to take such a measurement I'm afraid. Best would be a pit to cuff or a center-back to cuff measurement.

yes it's a tricky one to get measurements on. Oi Polloi had sleeve measurments posted but it was totally vague for me as to how they took the measurements. Seemingly, the sleeves on an S and M are the same.

 

I went by this picture http://www.tresbienshop.com/brand/engineered-garments/field-parka-khaki

 

The Parka's yet to arrive but I can give some info as for the fit later

You'll be fine with the sleeve length on the medium. I'm about 25-25.5" shoulder to wrist and I have the cuffs turned up on the medium parka.

For those thinking about the Field Parka or North Wood jacket, I have the parka in olive and the jacket in black. The black fabric is a lot more rain resistant than the olive which I find just soaks up water. Kinda wish I bought the colours the other way round.

that is interesting about the fabric....never would have guessed that as I thought it was the same. I have the olive parka as well and it definitely isn't water resistant. My brother has the parka in black, I'll have to ask him what he thinks about it.

This the methods you should use when taking measurements for garments.

Shirts

Collar size / A measuring tape around the base of your neck with your index finger just inside the tape. This measurement will allow for sizing ( shrinkage after three to four warm washings ) of a collar.
Yoke / The length of the shoulder panel from seam to seam.
Sleeve length / Half the yoke measurement plus the length of the sleeve. A good measurement would be measured to about one inch above the fist knuckle of the pinky finger.
Tail length / From the front of the yolk where it meets the collar to the bottom of the shirt. Some measure from the back of the collar where it meets the yolk to the bottom of the shirt
Chest measurement / Measured flat from pit to pit or measured across from the third button from the top collar button.
Waist measurement / Measured flat across at the seventh button from the top collar button.

Sport Jackets

Underarm Measurement
/ A measuring tape around your chest over the highest part of your chest should give you a chest size,
Jacket length / From the bottom of the collar to the bottom of the coat. 29 1/2" = Short, 30 1/2" = Regular, 31 1/2" = Long. Note: Not all jacket lengths are equal due to fashion statements.
Sleeve length / Inseam measurement from where sleeve joins jacket to end of sleeve. End of sleeve usually is 4 1/4" from tip of thumb.

Outerwear

Chest measurement / Measured flat from Pit seam to Pit seam.
Sleeve measurement / Measured from Pit seam to end of sleeve. End of sleeve usually is 3 3/4" from tip of thumb.

I won't go into trouser fitting for it gets complicated with various rises ( Crotch to top of waist band )

This should act as a guide to help you understand your size requirements and to read other web site size guides. It wouldn't be a bad idea to go to your local Menswear shop and ask them to take your measurements, write them down and keep them with you when you shop in store or online.

If anyone needs any more information, please feel free to contact me.

Happy New Year!

Gary

Thank you! I just want you guys to have all the right information and be smart consumers.

I think it'll go on until supplies last. I went yesterday and the 50% selection is really really good if you like the crazier Needles / South2 West8 stuff. There were also several Andover(s), Landsdown(s) and Brookline(s) but I mean... don't ask me which ones and in which sizes. Some other stuff is at 30% and A LOT of other stuff is not on sale at all. There are basically (only) 4 racks of marked down stuff.
