Monitaly is really good stuff I have the double breast pea coat like coat a few season back, would grab the mountain parka if I didn't have something similar from RLBL already (plus too many outwear in general...)

"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.

Ahhhhhhh, I can see that now.

So the corresponding leather strap with two holes in it performs more than one function. The second is to attach to the one or both buttons on the hood itself to adjust the slack in the hood, I presume?

Haha yes, and I have two well worn Ragostas and a Chaia coat to prove it. But you're right... props to Greg for the fabrics and whatever role you had in those Sam trousers as well.

Anyone own both the Eidos Sal trouser as well as the new Rota higher raise with sidetab?

I have Eidos suit pants from Bloomingdales (ok fit wise, nothing spacial) which is more like regular to low raise, I also have Rota that's medium raise (fits well, has roughly the same leg opening as my other slim ish trouser without weirdly hugging the leg, which is a huge plus), want to try some higher raise with side tab, just want to see if someone has both?

How warm are the blanket-lined Monitaly mountain parka's? Could they function as a more stylish 'Canada Goose' parka replacement in very cold Toronto winters (especially with layering)? Or would something like the NR Moscow be better for that purpose?

Think Greg may have mentioned those are good for around 50F, but could take you to freezing with appropriate layering. If your winters are typically freezing and below, I'd go with the Moscow.

I tend to run hot so I can wear mine into pretty low temperatures, especially with a layer under it. That being said I still have a Goose for the most frigid of days but the Mtn Parka gets considerably more use

For those most bitter cold days, the Moscow will undoubtedly offer more wind and cold protection.  It's longer, cuts the wind and the arctic liner insulates really well.

Excited to see what James Grose jackets look like.

Gotcha - are you guys getting additional parkas capable of like -20C/-4F weather? I'm not exactly hiking out in the snow for hours on end, but would be walking from building to building at times during the winter and at night when it can drop to those temperatures.

Hi Greg and Team - Would it be possible for you to share pictures of you (or anybody else) wearing some of the new outerwear being offered this season? Given how great everything looks, it would really help me deciding. I am particularly interested in seeing both Eidos balmacaans, the Camoshita blue herringbone overcoat, the Leder speckled green wool DB coat and the TS(S) navy moleskin raglan. Thank you!

Some shots of Leder stuff in the Leder editorial:

Isn't one of those models from that Leder editorial one of our SF members (I can't remember his name, remember him wearing a very slim-fitted Engineered Garments bedford)?

It seems like the Monitaly Field Jackets run significantly smaller through the chest than the Mountain Parka (or Bomber) confused.gif
