It's not costume-y, no comical pockets or little flaps and straps, and it has a good length, so we guys who are over 6 feet can wear it too (no offense to the XS crowd). The fabric is high count so it won't work well in more humid climates in summer. I won't be able to wear it in Tokyo from around May to October I guess.
sounds good, got one coming my way shortly...couple of questions is the colour as dark an olive in the flesh as the pics on nepethenes website? Also there's been quite a hike in it's rrp this s/s i presume fabric may be a little heavier so more a jacket than a shirt perhaps?
I had detailed sizing sent to me & the Penn does appear to be tailored in line with earlier EG items. Looking fwd to this one arriving.
