Eidos field jacket
...and with collar popped (thereby fulfilling the obligation stipulated in Appendix B, Section J, Subsection ii, Note 4 of the NMWA TOU):

And, despite the absence of a tag inside the jacket, I do believe that Stitchy is right and that this fabric is indeed from the Amazaballs book.
Wishing I jumped on this now. Me likey.
I'm interested in the GRP knitted cardigan / alpaca cardigan. Im kind of tall and thin- unsure of a size 3 or 4. Should I order both and hope one fits?
That looks fantastic Frank!
While "Lawyerdad you're doing it wrong" is (as usual) probably the explanation, it seems like the SF10 code isn't working -- even for non-sale items. Was it perhaps turned off across the board for the duration of the sale?
If you're logged in, log off and then try it. sometimes if youre a founder circle member it uses the founder circle discount (when there is one) automatically.
Thanks - will try. Not FC, unfortunately. That'll teach me to take a sabbatical from SF . . .
^Nice jacket Frank! That's the brown/black version right?
I received my oatmeal Eidos field coat. Very pleased with it. I went with size 50 after consulting with Greg and I think it works great. I'm typically a US 39R or 40R but the LBM casentino coats from F/W 2013 in size 50 fit me well, so went with the 50 in Eidos. I was slightly concerned that it might be small, but I can get a sport coat under this field coat where I couldn't with the LBM, so it's all good.

Looks good! But that jacket must be worn with collar popped IMO. I believe that is how its intended to be worn/designed
I took my Eidos field jacket out for a spin yesterday. It was very comfortable in low-to-mid-40s weather. The only very minor criticism I have is that it could be a smidge longer; some of my odd jackets peek out from below when worn underneath the field jacket. Maybe I need to start wearing shorter odd jackets?
Yes, mine is the brown/black herringbone. I went with a 52 compared to 40US/50L Formosa. And I believe my Casentino is a 52 as well. This seems to be cut a little fuller. Easy to wear a sweater under it. Haven't tried a SC yet.
Yes, I will definitely wear it with the collar popped a lot.
I think you have some Epaulet jackets right? I tried a size 40R from EP under my size 50 field jacket and it did not peek out. I wasn't expecting to be able to fit a sport coat under it though, so it's a bonus that it can even accommodate one.
Collar popped and waist drawstrings cinched a bit = getting the best out of the Eidos field jacket
I knew it!
