    @gdl203 - I tried to search for the answer but this thread moves so fast so I apologize if it's already covered, but is there an update on when the Eidos field jackets that were placed back in November are due in? I think it was supposed to be sometime in the middle of this month, IIRC?


    I'm not really a jeans kind of guy but those are pretty awesome.

    I bought the Ontano's in part due to you (I think they're going to work out--thank you!), and now you tempt me with the Grose jacket; looks great here.

    Awesome. I think the Taupe color Lake sweater is mt favorite pickup of the season. Can't understand how any of the SS sweaters are still in stock

    Cool stitching.

    I don't think I've seen anyone post a pic wearing it.

    Greg/Kyle will know better than I, but I can tell you I sized up in the NR Bumfreezer jacket and I am glad I did. I am the same sizes as you, as well.

    I feel like if I got a medium in the Bumfreezer it would have been too snug with layering and/or have to be worn unzipped only.

    Hopefully this helps you a little bit.

    Thanks, I appreciate your response. That's what I was thinking too. I'm shorter than you though, I'm 5'8 so hopefully that won't affect it much. You have the perfect model height! :D I'll give it some time to see if they respond.

    Size L in everything but the Moscow, where you would wear a M

    That is interesting as I'm the same size as you both.

    Medium shirts, 40 jackets. But 6'1".

    I first ordered the large Navy SB long raincoat. With the liner inside, it looked a little big but ok.

    Without the liner it was def. too big/wide shoulders and sleeves too long.

    So I returned for the medium which fits me properly and is fine over a SC but admittedly with the liner in(which I don't think I'll use much) it was snug.

    I have pictures posted somewhere awhile back of the 2 size fits.

    Wigglr - did you get flapped pockets and just tuck them in, or did you order with jetted? Is there a visual difference when flapped are tucked (Formosa question I guess technically, but I am more broadly curious). Might just be the pattern of the cloth, but the pockets look great. Sounds weird to say, but just something very refined about the piping (? correct term).

    5' 7" here, and I got the Bumfreezer in M (M in PF shirts, 38 Formosa). It's definitely on the snug side, but not uncomfortably so. A light sweater or sweatshirt works, but not heavy layering. I traded a little extra length for a bit of snugness (in fairness I never tried the L, but the sleeves on the M are already long enough that I have to cuff them slightly. Short arms.)

    These are flapped pockets which have been tucked .For some reason, I prefer the look.

    WIWWOS - NMWA parts:

    ♤ Camoshita frayed seams band collar shirt 41 (f/w 15)
    ♢ Esemplare down vest XL (f/w 14)
    ♡ Camoshita 'The Cusack' coat 50 - awesome cloth, fluffy, soft, vibrant. Fits huge, 48 would have worked, too, but love it like this.
    ♤ Geller Blacks 36 - like I said, I like the slouchiness of the size up from normal for these on me. They "stack"! ;)

    Not seen (too warm indoors):
    □ Merola Cork Peccary gloves
    ● Suzusan Caramel/Indigo scarf - whispy light, great colours, big (80x180), 1 left!

    [​IMG]

    There is a lovely blacked out version for this fit with a black Niche correction: ts(s) roll-neck, black Begg cashmere scarf, black gloves.

    Thank you! You got the classic elegance part pretty much sorted out. [​IMG] Definitely enjoy your fits.
    On 2nd thought (edit), 'Mastering' is probably not what I would call it, 'trying' and sometimes succeeding more like it.
    (With what the gents at NMWA have on offer we have at least a head start by not having to scan through hundreds of pages of mostly expensive 'rubbish' (not all out there is, but lots) with the ensuing hits and misses. The help and support in the selection process, supported by this very forum community, is simply priceless. Finally, the offering just fits my comfort level pretty perfectly, from office/classic to (not too extreme) casual gear.You wouldn't have wanted to see me pre-NMWA discovery. It's a whole new game.)

    Cheers, mate!

    Agreed. My pic doesn't do the fabric much justice. The blue is really vibrant and deep.
