Now that the eidos FJ is shorter in the body, I might be a player in 46. Will there be any other fabrics?
post #35132 of 36532

received the Il Micio belt today and if anyone is on fence about it, it will be worth your while and also it is built to outlast you and quite possibly your next few generations.

I just got my salt and pepper NR single breasted jacket. What does the leather flap with two buttons on the back of the neck do?
post #35134 of 36532
The Inglese polo shirt turned out very nicely. Will definitely add a few more.

Ha.

 

I asked Greg the same question.

 

"The strap buttons and flap attaches to a corresponding strap on the hood and allows the hood to be rolled and attached rather than flop around, when not in use."

 

If the hood is removed though it seems that you need to tuck the leather flap under the leather strip.

Eidos has always been great, but it has officially his its stride. The new drop is just so excellent.
post #35137 of 36532
I agree! Eidos is coming into its own, and refining its silhouettes. Will probably pick up the overcoat.
post #35138 of 36532
Does look good... must participate in the next FW pre-order.

Hahah - I appreciate that, but you do realize that every silhouette in this drop is more than 3 seasons old? Props should be going to Greg for picking great fabrics in our most classic styles.

Anyone have pics of the cotton-linen rotas being worn? ( wanted to see how the cut differs from the normal rota cut )

post #35141 of 36532
I love the emphasis on corduroy this season.
post #35142 of 36532
I received my navy donegal Eidos field jacket and it is 100% awesome. It's in the low 60s today and there is a cool breeze and the field jacket is the perfect weigh combined with the lightweight chambray shirt I'm wearing. The Eidos suit I have is a 50 but I sized up to the 52 in the field jacket and I'm glad I did. The shoulders might be just a tad big on me for some people's taste, but it's extremely comfortable and I'm sure that the 50 would not have left me room for layering a sweater underneath it.

I was a little concerned that the material and/or construction would be a bit too delicate and refined for what I think of as a field jacket (though having served in the Marine Corps, maybe my idea of what a field jacket should be is a bit biased?) but that doesn't seem to be the case. I wouldn't be afraid to put this on for some light yard work or over to my parents farm to help load up wagon full of hay or straw.

If Eidos ever offered a lined or quilted version for winter weather, I'd definitely be down.

The caramel Monitaly Mountain Parka is fantastic.

 

I think I might like it better than the black one.

 

Not sure, but I can't play in this playground anyhow.:mad:

post #35144 of 36532

All of the Monitaly is fantastic! I always feel like I can't squeeze it all in there, since there are so many well thought out details on everything they make. That said, they do such a great job describing the product that I wanted to post it here again for those that are curious.

Mountain Parka in Brush Brown and Black

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

  The Mountain Parka is a pertinent example of Monitaly’s careful attention to detail and engineered fitting.  The jacket has been part of Monitaly’s Fall/Winter collection for over five years.  Several well crafted design features, such as raglan sleeve construction, underarm gussets and shoulder pleats, work in conjunction to keep the Mountain Parka mobility-friendly despite its substantial weight as a water-proof outer layer.  The jacket boasts a total of six outer pockets; a patch gusseted pocket on right chest, a vertical zipper welt pocket on left chest, two large-sized gusted pockets at lower front, and two pockets on back.  The right chest pocket is equipped with a penholder opening on flap for better functionality.  The two lower front pockets can be accessible in two ways; storage from the top opening and hand-warming from side entry.  All the pockets get double needle top stitch with sturdy thick thread.  Hood is constructed with three panels for a better fit and is equipped with a visor.  At the top of front zipper closure, wool zipper guard is attached to avoid the discomfort of metal zipper touching your skin in cold weather.  Western yoke front and back shoulder gives it unique design.  There is a waist belt made out of self waxed cotton fabric with a military-spec buckle closure.  The Mountain Parka is fully lined with wool to keep you warm while smooth acetate sleeve lining will make sure you can put your arms smoothly and easily.  


    Waxed cotton is most often used in hunting and fishing clothing and is practically water and wind proof.  There are a couple of manufactures that produce waxed cotton, but the one used for our Mountain Parka is domestically-produced American waxed cotton.  It goes through a unique process to apply wax on fabric.  Wax is impregnated into yarn with a special technique (this technique is a company top secret that has been passed down from generation to generation).  Waxed cotton fabric treated with this special technique has much less wax migration problem without sacrificing its functionality.  Waxed cotton is a perfect classic outdoor fabric.  Wax can be reapplied after yeas of use or hand cleaning.  The more you take care of the wax cotton fabric, the appearance of the wax cotton fabric will be more nicely aged and you can enjoy the aging process over years. 


    Snap fasteners used are “DOT” brand, which is made by Scovill Co.  All snap fasteners are set with vegetable-tanned leather washer that has been skived (sliced) to get the best thickness for reinforcement.

Quilted work jacket in khaki and olive

Monitaly examines a vintage work jacket that is used in an extreme cold weather and takes its own way to elevate quality and details to match the current modern life.  There are four pockets on front that are uniquely arranged with a large panel divided into two pocket section with a nice stitching line.  Hood and inside of collar are equipped with high loft synthetic fur lining.   This long-length jacket keeps you warm and cozy, especially with this exclusive quilt fabric.

 

   Filled with seven ounces of virgin siliconized polyester, Supersoft Quilt used on this jacket mimics the feel of down but gives you the benefits of a synthetic insulation and less-bulky feeling.  Unlike down which becomes heavy when damp, this super soft insulation remains light in weight even when a bit wet.  Supersoft Quilt helps keep you warm in conditions where doing a little activity such as walking in a city.  This quilt is made with 100% Cotton herringbone fabric, and the quilt stitching pattern is called “Dumbbell”, which detail is often seen on a classic military jacket lining.

"5 zip" bomber in black Vancloth

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

    U.S. Air Force flight jacket developed in the mid-50’s has become a fashion icon throughout the major fashion cities.  Monitaly takes its own path to refine the U.S. Air Force flight jacket by keeping a taste of the original details yet twisting fit and fabrication.  Fit has been re-evaluated to make it modern silhouette.  It is not a boxy silhouette like the original jacket, but instead it has achieved a longer length, better body shape and contoured sleeve.  Some of the key features include angled front zipper pocket, two internal pockets and bell-shaped 100% wool ribbing cuff.   

 

      Filled with three ounces of high-loft virgin hollow polyester insulation, the fluffy quilt fabric used as lining of this jacket helps keep you warm in a condition where doing light activity in cold temperatures.  The quilt traps air in a space between its synthetic fibers and the air gets warmer as your body temperature increases with movement.  This quilt mimics the feel of down but gives you the benefits of a synthetic insulation and less-bulky feeling.  Unlike down which becomes heavy when damp, the quilt remains light in weight even when a bit wet.  The quilt is stitched with a super light-weight rip-stop nylon fabric.  It’s the same spec as real parachute material; durable, soft and windproof. 

 

      Monitaly’s original “Vancloth” fabric is a water-repellent and wind-resistant 100% cotton poplin fabric.  The smooth texture is achieved by a tight weaving construction, and when water is introduced to the surface of the fabric, the outer-most layer of fine yarn swells to lock out moisture and prevent the garment from becoming soaked.  

 

 

  • Lightweight 
  • Quilt lining with parachute rip-stop nylon  
  • 100% wool ribbing made in the U.S.A.
  • YKK waterproof zipper
  • Sleeve pocket with zipper closure

Wool lined field jacket in Brush Brown waxed cotton and black waxed cotton

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Short Field Jacket is a classic outdoor blouson with functional details and authentic style.  The length of this jacket hangs around upper hip.  Hem is finished with wool ribbing fabric and it makes the jacket fit you better.  The ribbing fabric is knitted from 100% wool yarn.  Wool yarn ribs are traditionally used for military flight jackets back in old days.  Our cuff ribbing has a special function called “flair”, in which the wale of ribbing gets wider toward edge, allowing more stretch for sleeve ends while keeping snug fit at your wrist.  The Short Field Jacket has a great stitching construction as top stitching is nicely done all over – shoulder, armhole, yoke, collar, hem, cuffs and pockets.  The outer pockets are versatile with an extra panel added, which makes two separate comportments; one is an opening for the top and the other is a zipper closure pocket.  The collar consists of a nicely-finished stand, which helps the collar to be rolled nicely.  V-shape back yoke is a bold detail to add a design twist to the back.  Inner is fully lined with a pocket on the left front. All snap fasteners are DOT brand which is manufactured by Scovill; a company with a long standing reputation for quality, value, and performance.  Snap closures are sometimes called "Dot buttons" because Scovill originally popularized snaps with the "DOT" brand name.
