I'd say maybe > 6" or so?  As you can imagine, there's an element of subjectivity here.

Shorts are really really good this season.

I color-corrected several pictures across other monitors.   Things should be better now

The colors on the model pics are much truer to life.

Gracias. What's the best way of sizing the shorts? Should we take a size in either shorts as we would generally for Eidos pants? I've found most Eidos pants I've tried to be fairly slim, and if it's the same with the shorts, then I'll be more comfortable not thinking I should size down to account for a more relaxed cut. In case Antonio can weigh in @NickPollica.

Remember that the Ghurka shorts use straps and side closures, so sizing there is probably relatively fluid.    I would imagine your size would be 34 if your Eidos dress trousers size is 50.

I'm a shade over 6' and tried a Eidos 52L because NMWA had it in stock. I felt like it was too long for me, e.g. coat skirts hung a little lower than I liked and button point was a shade lower than I though worked for me. That's compared to a Formosa 50R.

Agree with Greg that there's an element of subjectivity here.

If/when I get in on this preorder it will be as a 52R.

I started wearing shorts to work this year. Both those are going in the collection.

Norwegian Rain S/S'17 Pre-Orders

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

One of our favorite makers and discovery of the last couple years has been Norwegian Rain.  Incredibly talented people (both T-Michael and Alex) and a focus on making the best possible product, never cutting corners.  All the details make a ton of sense, they're functional and they're attractively designed as well.  

 

We've been talking to them about warmer weather options for a bit now, and I was blown away when I saw some of the changes they made to the designs to make them functional in warm weather.

  1. First, they developed a new construction with a cool mesh fabric as base lining (instead of the warmer satin lining) that will let the wearer fully benefit from the technical membrane that breathes well (unlike traditional bonded fabrics). Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

     

  2. Then, they worked with their Japanese fabric manufacturer to develop a light weight (LW) version of their woven technical fabrics (190g instead of 245g), as well as a super lightweight (SLW) technical fabric (112g !!) that offers the same total rain protection (taped seams, membrane...) but wearable in summer temperatures.
     
  3. Uncompromised performance as they developed those lightweight fabrics:  water-proofness stats: water column 20,000mm (this means that you can fill a 1" wide column of water up to 65 feet high before water would begin to leak through!);  breathability 20,000 gr/m2/day.

 

Here's me trying on the Geneve coat in the SLW green fabric (sample is one size too small for me).  

 

Light as a feather, all the incredible features that we're used to from Norwegian Rain (horn buttons, best hardware, removable hood, etc...) and a great matte technical fabric that drapes nicely. 
:inlove:

 

 

 

We're offering 4 styles for pre-orders - all available in the same set of fabrics : LW denim or SLW in five colors:  Military Green, Navy Blue, Black, Sand or Grey 

 


 

Genève 

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

Last but NOT least, a new design for this season - inspired by and optimized for bicycling (both T-Michael and Alex are cyclists).  Split construction in the back and arms to allow air circulation,  convertible cuffs with a magnet closure, long back hem, accessible pockets... The whole nine yards.   Here shown in a regular winter weight fabric we're not offering for summer

All the preorders are sick. Trying to choose a color for the NR double-breasted jacket. Can't decide between sand and military green -- any suggestions?? Also a huge fan of the Eidos shorts but I never wear shorts and have enough clothing I don't wear. Might grab another pair of Sal trousers though. Super good.

Military green SLW is awesome IMO

post #33626 of 36403

Greg, odd sizes in Eidos trousers, yes/ no?

 

the shoulder measurement for bumfreezer in xs is 15.8 inches?

I'm a good 6'3" and the 52L is basically perfect for me - both in length and in buttoning point.  In fact the sleeves required no alteration at all!  All I needed was for the jacket to be taken in a touch.

Sorry, no odd sizes.

 

These are all pattern measurements in centimeters - so the shoulder measurement is not across the yoke, but the measure between the collar and the shoulder seam.  This seam:

Eidos navy Fresco suit + triple seersucker shorts most likely for me.

Amazing selection this round.
post #33630 of 36403

The general consensus on the Eidos FJs is to size down one if little/no layering is planned, right? Measurements-wise, 48R looks right for me though I'm usually a 50R in sport coats.

 

I vaguely recall having seen a discussion on this before, so apologies if this is the nth time this is brought up...
