    I sold the fw09 dark navy (almost black) melton wool one when I moved south, been looking for the brown cord ever since.


    Context had charcoal in xs, sold out now though.
    Agree that grey was nowhere to be seen stateside, but didnt you order it through Gary?

    I have a large ish head as well (7 1/2) with short hair.

    I have found size large to be just big enough to fit me, in particular the adventure hat from SS12. The one with multiple button up pockets.

    I tried on the anchor print bucket cap from SS13 and it was super tight. Cannot recall if it was one size fits all, or a size medium.

    Hope this helps!

    Own two buckets- I am 7 1/4 and The M is snug. My guess is the L might be pushing it for you but worth trying on if you can access them in person.

    Large will be just fine for you mate, the bucket hats this season are made from fabrics that tend to give room [sweater knit wool, corduroy, melton wool etc] i have the navy wool camouflage one from FW12 and the Medium was quite roomy still. My avatar shows me wearing an adventure hat from SS12 in a size large.

    Has anyone purchased a Cruiser Jacket this season? I'd love some insights on fit, true to size or size down? Im hearing mixed recommendations. Thanks in advance and sorry if this topic has been covered earlier...

    EG tell me the Nyco ripstop is not water-resistant and Inventory say there is a significant difference between nyco ripstop and 60/40 fabric. I think a 'big' winter outerwear jacket should at least be water-resistant, pointless really.

    the ripstop nyco on the field parkas is fine for snow. you don't really need something that water resistant for snow, tbh. i wouldn't wear it snowboarding or in heavy rain, though. EG isn't technical wear and doesn't really pretend to be.

    I don't expect technical outerwear, I know that's not their field. However, they could give the ripstop waterproof treatment for water-resistance. Makes sense for hooded winter outerwear.

    If you want your parka to have some water repellency either take it to your dry cleaner and have it proofed or buy a can of 3M Scotch Guard and apply it yourself. Remember, like silicone spray for your shoes, you should keep the can about 12 > 15 inches away from the garment and mist the garment, moving around it quickly. Let that treatment dry in and give it another application. The more you put into it, the greater the efficacy.
    This is a heritage brand and EG is determined to keep that aspect of it to its original character.

    I will probably do that. Waterproofing using wax and oils goes back hundreds of years, it is something I'd like to see EG explore in the future.
