A friend of mine who wears an XL/XXL in EG put on my Highland Parka from FW14, which is a S, and it fit him perfectly. That thing was absolutely enormous.

@lawlercon – Rarely do I recommend sizing down on EG, but I find you have to size up occasionally to get sleeve lengths right. Maybe being on the XL end of things and being so dedicated to anti-fit makes that easier for you.

Just trying it on and not having worn it for extended periods of time, the material didn't feel too thick, but it definitely seemed to wear warmer than I expected. The color is pretty true in those pictures. It may be a touch darker in real life.

Yep, I've handled that fabric in person, one of my favorites from this season. It's not aggressively thick or anything, good for fall layering given the colors. I'd say you'd be fine in it until it dips below 40 degrees.

was it a solid brown or flecked with other colors? pictures look like there is some orange and maybe blue in the weave

post #591 of 1015

Definitely not a solid brown. From what I remember it has some green mixed in, but I'm not sure if there were other colors. It's not like a donegal wool or anything, just more of a blend.

there's also a brown/green wool Bedford that has green, of course, mixed in - the green is subtle yet def discernible, more so than it appears to be in this baker. but I've only seen the Bedford in person so can't be entirely accurate.

yeah - that Bedford is selling out really quickly. one of the few items sold out at tbb (although it seems they just got a restock, or return) in size L...have you asked Nepenthes for their stockists for the Bedord?

 

I'm in DC and still awaiting Federal's fw delivery - last winter they picked up the bedfords, so might want to check up on the federal site to see if they get it in...

They definitely had them last season. I think they always wait until they have every delivery in and then post it all online. Rather than the Bureau who posts their items incrementally as they arrive.
