Was my last fit trash? I'm getting a shit ton of down-votes and hate on hypebeast, lmfao. I like honesty, and recommendations. This is the first fall that I've really started to buy high end clothes. Before this year I mostly wore Zara, Banana Republic, J Crew, and All Saints. However, now I'm buying more and more quality pieces and getting rid of my mall brand stuff.

The water heater closet? That's a horrible photo. What did you expect?
post #2734 of 3855

You took your picture in ridiculously awful lighting in front of a mirror attached to a boiler in a dingy basement and the big mystery for you is why you are getting downvotes and hate? Lmao.

Definitely a slim fit, but fortunately I have thin legs. I have the Khaki 8oz Canvas version. Great pants IMHO. Let me know if you fit 32 and need dimensions.

I also got a pair in same size (32) from SS15 (French Twill Olive) and they fit much baggier in comparison.

I'm surprised that anyone posting on here and more specifically in this thread gives a shit what Hypebeast forum posters think, last time I looked through the waywt thread on there, it was pretty dire.

@ericleavitt I think the parka looks great on you and I think since we shortened the sleeves from the shoulder, the fit is right on.
There's a misconception that EG should fit close to the body, plus this a layering piece that needs a little extra room inside for sport jackets like a bedford or a great knitwear piece. If you desire to suppress the waist line, use those draw strings.

In regards to water heater photo, you could do better but I've seen worse i.e. bathroom pics, bedroom w/ dirty laundy pics etc. Don't get too esoteric but you live in such a great area of New England. Show us that including you in your stuff.

Yeah actually that's the exact one and size I'm looking at (the canvas ones). Measurements would be great, thanks!

3 things:

 

1. the location of your photo is detracting from the point of the photo - easy fix, place your mirror in a superior location. better yet, grab a friend/tripod and take photos outside.

 

2. i've been a member of superfuture since '05, if the "friendliness" of posters on there is anything like that of your fellow hypebeast participants, I'd say simply forget about them. So far styleforum has proved to attract a higher quality (or simply more "friendly") community. There are a lot of fashun folks with negative attitudes out there on the www.

 

3. Don't be discouraged.

@ericleavitt

 

Fit looks good, but picture quality is average at best.  For some online fashion forums you need 4 things to have a great outfit; great lighting, a decent camera, a great location, a great outfit.  Look at @ManofKent's photos, he's outside at a background that isn't distracting, but yet nice. He's using a nice enough camera to where you can make out the details of his fit and it's positioned so his body doesn't look out of proportion.  He always has nice lighting, so the colors of the fit are fairly accurate, and his outfits are visually interesting, cohesive, and suit his size/physique really well.  Your fits and camera quality are good enough you just need work on lighting and location.

Happy to help out mate.

Waist: 33"
Front rise: 11"
Inner seam: 30.75"
Leg opening: 6.75"

It's a strong taper with a slim leg (not a tight fit at all on me), but sufficient room in the top block. I think you would have no issues with fit if the Cinch Pant fits you well in 32.

Note i only ever cold wash. Hang dry only. Worn/washed maybe a dozen times and holding strong.

Final note, canvas is super soft to the touch and quite thick/warm.

Let me know if you need any extra info!

@Drinkwaters the Cruiser Jacket you had shortened for me fits amazing! This parka that I'm talking about is the "highland parka" I recently bought it. I might need to have it tailored as well. Here's a photo of me with the EG Cruiser Jacket, a Shawl Cardigan, and a Work Shirt under it. Don't mind the location, I'm only doing this for fit advice, and to see if I should sell the highland parka. Thank you everyone so far for all of the kind advice.

At the least, take a few extra seconds and crop it. Even if it's just for fit advice, you are likely to get more responses if you put a little more effort into it.

 

 

Parka looks fine. It's supposed to fit like that. If you don't care for that type of fit, then return it. It's not to everybody's taste. I wouldn't mess with it too much with alterations.

@zalb916 It doesn't look too wide to you? I mean i love the look of the parka here:

post #2745 of 3855

@ericleavitt he's a wider guy, that's a nice shot, and its layered over a lot of clothes. Also if this years iteration is like last years (which was MASSIVE fyi - sized down 1 and I swim in it), there should be buttons in the back to condense it a little. 

 

It looks fine on you, but if you're looking for some *perfect* fit, you shouldn't be buying EG outerwear. Its meant to be worn loose, layered over a jacket. It's always a bit 'frumpy'.
