anyone have any experience with the fit and weight of this season's trail parka? want to hop on one before they're all gone. thanks
Fycus and Tororo are right on all points. I sized down and it's a touch too tight in the shoulders. The material is pretty standard cotton/poly and not worth the ~$500 price tag imo. Here's a pic of mine showing fit. For reference, I normally take a S/M in EG shirting and I'm about 5"11:
As for the polka dot shorts (I'm assuming you're talking about the cinch ones?): they fit really small. I had to size up on them and they're still slimmer than I'd like. I'll probably be putting them up on the B&S soon, but interested parties can PM me with reasonable offers (never worn outside, BNWT). *Edit* - Size 32 Edited by TWorksheets - 6/1/12 at 5:27am
I tried on the parka in navy and in coated, and Fycus is right - fits TTS. And I would like to add that this season's parka has quite a different cut from the previous seasons. It fits normal in the shoulders and chest, but then it kind of balloons out into this anti-fit kind of look. There are drawstrings to pull it together, but doing so also doesn't look right. It is a bit too short (I'm 6.1) as well, and therefore looked really awkward on me. Sizing down wouldn't work length-wise. Think of it more like an eccentric Daiki take on the Parka than a functional, classic Parka cut. I was very disappointed, given that back in the day I got into EG for their Parkas alone, and own about 5 different ones now. They all are great, but this season's one is a dud, at least for taller guys.
I tried this season Parka as well, not a fan, I have 3 from past seasons, I like those style better. I am 5'9" and wider, it balloons out at bottom and it doesn't look good. I prefer the older season parkas. The anti-fit look never works on me as my body type is already anti-fit.

yeah i mentioned this as well a few pages back
i had the 28/xs from last year's olive fatigue shorts but this year getting the 28s in polka were ridiculously tight and made me look like i was wearing tight little boys shorts
returned to nepenthes for size 30 and they fit great
What's up with Arrow & Arrow? sent 2 emails and no reply. anyone has the same experience with her?

Did you use the firstname.lastname@example.org address? Lauren's always been fast to respond to my emails in the past, maybe she's taking time off. There is always the phone.
