    What's the fit like on the Mac Jacket? I'm thinking of picking one up (I have store credit and it's either the Mac Jacket or the Military Pants).

    I'm 5'10", 160 lbs, wear a 15-33 shirt, 38R sportcoat, and M in EG shirts--would I be an M in the Mac?

    Conversely: Would you rather have the black Military Pants or a black Mac Jacket?

    there are a couple of options, seeing that the buckle is the main component. Tim Handy, or whatever the guy mentioned, but there is another place that escapes my mind which is like $100. Let me dig it out http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=23656 I actually mail ordered one from dubarry a while back, really nice belt, buckle is almost identical, it's as heavy, but not as stiff as the EG belt I own. also http://www.timhardy.com/quick_release_belts.html

    I just received my Mac Jacket (size small) yesterday and the fit for me is very good. If you are medium in shirts you will probably be medium in the jacket. I'm a small in shirts and the jacket is just right. I will probably get the arms shortened about an inch but that's it. The thickness of this jacket is just right for west coast winter- I'll only need a dress shirt underneath. For East Coast you may need to layer some more. Materials seem good and durable. My only complaint so far is the zipper sticks sometimes when unzipping (a real pet peeve for me) and you may or may not like the neck buckle at the top, which sticks out if you don't use it.

    I also bought the very light windbreaker in black for $89.00 at Odin and it fits perfectly, and will be great for travel in warm but wet countries. It's super light weight.

    I have no experience with the pants.

    ^ I'd agree that the mac jacket is true to size. Sleeves are perfect on me, though I should note that I haven't had any problems with the zipper.

    Hey Guys, Here is an FYI. We will be going on SALE officially the 24th. However, if anyone wants to take advantage of it early, I'd be happy to oblige. I am not going to post an inventory because I just don't have the time to. Just call me 617-547-2067 and I will go over whatever you are interested in. Free shipping will not be included and all sales are final! Thanks. Gary

    I'm wearing a couple of items Gary has - the field vest and brown/tan plaid western shirt.

    They've turned out to be two of my surprise favorites this season - especially the field vest.

    Correct, though those were the Thanksgiving sale prices. I'm not sure about this sale.

    Just to clarify the price discount. 30% off Shirts and Sweaters. 40% off everything else.
    Please, if you are interested in anything, please call 617-547-2067. I'm all by myself for next few days and cannot be spending to much time here. Thanks!
