Anyone have the thick herringbone Eidos field jacket yet who could post a fit pic? I'm trying to get a sense for the pockets- they look welted with less volume online- which I think I rather prefer, particularly in this fabric. Thanks!

Off-topic question, anyone here knows a good book (or few) about history and evolution of Jazz?

I liked Ted Gioia's aptly-named "The History of Jazz".

Ok, I know it's off topic, but here's a quick response. I haven't read Gioia's book yet, but it looks pretty good. This one is expensive, but Mark Gridley's "Jazz Styles" is the standard college text. You can find used older editions for much less. It sort of depends on exactly what you are looking for, but Jonny King's "What Jazz Is" is still one of my favorite introductory jazz books even though it was published in the 90s. Of course now you can find all the recordings he references on YouTube. Where most books tend to treat jazz as a dead museum piece, he actually references current (90s) influential musicians and recordings, and he is a fantastic pianist himself. The Ken Burns Jazz series by contrast had an entire episode devoted to 1935-37, another one for 1937-39, and the final one was 1961-2001, so he pretty much missed, or at best barely touched on, all the major influences of anyone playing today.

There are lots of great biographies/autobiographies that cover jazz history and evolution through the perspective of an influential musician, and books by or about Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Thelonious Monk, Quincy Jones, etc. are all highly recommended reads. For insight into a lot of legendary musicians by a musician, Art Taylor's series of interviews published as "Notes and Tones" is fantastic. As a great drummer himself, AT got a lot of candid answers that a journalist couldn't have gotten. Robert O'Meally's "The Jazz Cadence of American Culture" is another favorite of mine that is a collection of essays chronicling jazz history through it's cultural effects. I don't necessarily agree with some of the essays included, but it is an interesting read.

If you want further recommendations, we should probably take this to PM. Now back to NMWA ...

Greg--

 

Any indication from Eidos if a hypothetical hunting jacket GMTO would be possible?  If we can gather interest in the next week or two in theory this possible order should be completed by Christmas.

Greg, after the inital set of Inglese Polos are done, any chance of some linen, or cotton linen polos?

I received the Portuguese Flannel CPO shirt last week. I am blown away by it. To me it's a lot more jacket than shirt, as it is a more substantial cotton canvas than any cotton canvas jacket I own. Given the craze over field jacket type outerwear, I'm kind of surprised that these are still in stock in all sizes. I would probably instakop if this ever comes out in camel/light brown colors.

A couple of bad i-pics:

I knew that was going to look great. It's on my wishlist so hopefully my size sticks around a little longer until my money battery is recharged.
