Is this the mutual support thread
You need to get in touch with "Denim is the excuse I use for having Destroyed My Life"
The jacket is one of the strongest pieces this season, imho, and I rather like Odin as well. There are some pictures on a member in the jacket here somewhere...

I really wanted to pick up this jacket, but didn't have money until now, and it appears every online retailer either doesn't sell it, or is sold out. I know this is a lame question, but can anyone recommend a jacket that is very similar? I love everything about it and would really like to get something close because I can't seem to buy the real thing.

I wish I could find a xsmall. I try on the small every time I goto Barney's or Odin, hoping it'll suddenly fit better on me.

Actually its not bedford, on the tag it says "Norfolk Jacket" SM Herringbone... is that different from the jacket pictured above and the EG site?

The jacket Calden posted is the Bedford. This is the Norfolk.
Personally, I'd gladly take a life to get ahold of either (Norfolk only in brown, though!). Alas, it is unlikely, murders or otherwise.

I have a bedford but it doesn't fit me as slim as I'd like. I guess I just like my clothes very fitted

yeah, that's the one... Except mine is Grey/Black herringbone, not corduroy. I tried this blue corduroy jacket on (which was priced almost $100 cheaper than the one I bought) It was nice but thinner than it appears in the pics.

So you're going to give it to me before I resort to threats of violence, right right yeah?

It's great, but you must wear it ONLY with the collar up. I really wish it would get cold here so I can wear mine.

EDIT: There was a herringbone Norfolk!?!?!? I would've much preferred that. Please tell me it's not Thinsulate lined or it costs $600 or smells like cat pee or something.
