Bloomingdales has the canvas bedford in grey (interesting variation). No sure how many canvas jackets i need, but i just know it's gonna go on some heavy discount come thanksgiving/xmas and I won't be able to resist.

Nepenthes said they only have a Medium left, as does Inventory in Vancouver.

I think I've actually been able to find every size BUT Large online somewhere frown.gif

I believe Barney's carried these. Trying calling a flagship that stocks EG and see (LA or Madison Ave.). I could be wrong though.

Not much talk about the field parka so I though I'd post my thoughts/review here.

 

I recently picked up the field parka in black from Inventory and the first thing I noticed was how thick/heavy the parka felt when I tried it on. The interior is wool-lined and the parka feels warm enough to wear through winter over a thermal or light sweater (it doesn't really get below 0 where I live). I love the attention of detail on this parka. The side-entry pockets, chin-guard and interior wrist are all lined with soft courdouroy. There are a total of 9 (yes, 9) pockets on this jacket (7 exterior, 2 interior not including side-entry hand-warmer pockets). The pocket located on the back is actually surprisingly large and extends all the way from the middle drawstring enclosure up to the point where the hood is attached, perfect for storing things like scarves. Another minor detail I like is the fact that the sleeve, while sufficiently roomy in the bicep area, tapers slightly from the elbow to the wrist for a nice small opening. The only thing I'm not sure about is how waterproof this parka is (shell is listed as a polyester/cotton blend). I guess time will tell as I plan on making this parka my go-to jacket for this winter.

 

Phew, sorry for the wall of text, just really happy with my first EG piece. Crappy iphone fit pics in the spoiler below, for reference I'm 5'10 175 lbs and got medium.

I still love my khaki field parka. Wear it 4 or 5 times a week. awesome piece. I can't wait to get a bedford to layer underneath it.

Looks great Travs. Really want to pick one up myself but at this stage I'll probably hang on for the sales. Great fit as well.
post #898 of 1245
Yeah, I have the green field parka from this season and it is pretty great. Love the wool lining with corduroy trim and so far it has kept me warm enough down to the mid-20's we had one morning (and that was just over a shirt, no sweater). I love almost everything about it, only thing that puzzles me is the button and snap closures on the flap pockets....seems needlessly redundant and makes them more difficult to actually use. Oh well, still love the jacket and it will be my go to this winter on all but the coldest of days I believe.

My guess is it's not really very water resistant, I probably wouldn't choose it for a hard rain but I think it'll be fine for the snow since most of that just falls off anyway.

Hey, thinking about selling my F/W11 fair isle tie. if anyone wants to buy it. I'm selling for cheaper than what you would get retail plus it hasn't been worn out. 150 shipped, PM me.

Finally approached Nephentes shop two days ago.

 

The staff was friendly and really help me ro try rhe right stuff for me, and I have purchase a Cruiser Jacket in Loden, a Landsdown jacket in herringbone wool and a Workaday oxford red striped shirt .

Because the stock was so poor I ended up to buy a Coleman jacket in duck color at Barneys (I find a very good selection of EG) and a Bedford Jacket in blue/black raw drill from Steven Allan shop.

 

As usual I experienced the size will be very strange.

While for the Landsdown and the Bedford I must go for the XL (but sleeves seems too long) the Loden Cruiser Jacket is perfect in L (!) and the shirt too.

The same for the Coleman. L is fit me perfectly.

 

No chanche to wear trouser from EG: too much high waist, and a 34 size (I have measured, is like a 32) 36 is like a 34 and the waist fit is no easy if you are  not flat like a table!

 

Also it was impossible to find knit ties... Or the Hoody bib...Nobody seems to stock them, even Odin shop, or the corner of Bergdorf Goodman in SoHO...

 

Even FWK form my girlfriend was almost impossible to find in XS size... By the way, apart the not to wide selection in Nephentes, nobody seems to stock FWK in NYC...

 

I stay in NYC two day more... If you have some advice for me smile.gif Thanks in advance!
