@conceptual 4est will the Greatcoat be available in the fall as well, or is this a pre order thing only? I don't mind paying the extra money to see the coat made in these new colors. And also in case of a return, since I'm between sizes in FL stuff.

I've owned one pair of jeans for a long time. I typically wear them when I go to SEA. I bought this pair to replace my old pair, but I think I might sport them more often than in the past during the summer months when I don't want to sweat through my suit pants. I oddly perspire a great deal from those skinny legs and don't mind doing it into denim.

I essentially have two uniforms as you've described (including navy) and white t shirts and black jeans. I've decided to sport more button down collar shirts with the jeans in the summer.

It shows marks then. Also I like the look of a patch, just not with so much contrast.

Congrats on the weight loss, btw. That's incredible. How much of your wardrobe became unwearable in the transition?

I lost the weight over a decade ago at this point. I was in college during the transition so my clothing ($) loss wasn't that bad (relatively).

Feels fine when worn open but it's constricted in the chest when zipped up over a flannel (pictured). Likely the thickest I'd layer underneath. You think I need a M?

Hm, I think I'm about the same size and I ended up preordering a MD. I experienced the same tightness around the front chest when zipped in a SM (not super uncomfortable but noticeable). Hopefully the MD will work for me!

If there is enough fabric left after pre-orders, we'll do a run of at least one color in the fall, and I'll update the thread when we've solidified that. If the pre-order is for a color that we end up stocking we'll be able to exchange sizes, provided we have the size needed.

Thanks for replies!

 

Yeah, the prevailing sentiment is to go TTS but I was desperate for the hopsack.  The medium should be fine if not a touch roomy, which isn't a bad thing for a rain jacket.  The tightness is noticeable especially if zipped up all the way.  I'll sleep on it.

It does help being in LA. Don't think we'll need to layer anything under a Bumfreezer here.

@gdl203, have you made any firm commitments for which eidos pieces will be in-stock (regardless of pre-order) for FW '17 ?
post #38168 of 39248
To chime in on the Big Johns, I own four pairs in the slim tapered cut, three of them in a size 29 (black KURO2, indigo faux slub, and light blue RURI), and one in a 30 (another KURO2). My waist (well, hips) measure about 31.5" at the point where I wear them.

The stretching is absolutely a function of both size relative to your actual waist, and the actual fabric. The black ones in a 29 stretch out to a comfortable point over time, then tighten after a wash, but always return to comfortable after a week or so of wearing. Not so with the indigo and the ruri, which don't seem to stretch as much in the first place and never quite got to a point where I found them comfortable. The 29 is definitely a "size down one" on me in all three fabrics.

When my first pair of black ones had tears in both front pocket bags, was wearing through in several places, and had faded to a light grey across the wear areas, I searched high and low for another pair but couldn't find them in a 29, so went with the 30. And found that as Greg has said, if you don't stress the wist so much in the first place, it doesn't stretch out. I now far prefer the fit to the 29s.

TL;DR: Denim is a land of contrasts. Try what you can until you find a cut and a fabric that you like. No amount of scrutinizing measurements will tell you everything about how they actually fit.

vacillating wildly between "look how amazing and reasonably priced that greatcoat is you should buy a blue one" and "you already have a Leder greatcoat how many do you need what is wrong with you."

All three carry that same "plush" feel of the original version, just in new colors.

Do all three have similar thickness despite the differing weights, or will the 500 gsm fabrics be a bit thinner?

the taupe 700gsm fabric is thicker / spongier

Awesome, Kyle. Thank you for setting this up. I'm going for the navy.

Must've also been nice for something dear to you come to fruition

last thing i need is ANOTHER winter coat but that price point is too hard to resist. my only justification is "i don't have a winter coat in that color" so went ahead and got taupe SMH

While Eidos preorders have more fabric options, Leder Winter coats seem like such a better value.

 

Both are beautiful for certain.

 

If I lived in colder climes I'd get the Eidos wide herringbone and the Leder Taupe.

Placed my preorder for the Frank Leder Coat but forgot to put my size and that I wanted Taupe.:/

Well I'm an idiot.
