I'm having trouble determining the color for all of these. It says "Olive Cotton Herringbone" but they all look pretty different due to lighting. I just want to know which is more accurate:

Bodega
Nepenthes
wellgosh
Today Clothing

I'm leaning towards the Nepenthes ones, though I'm wondering if they're all supposed to look like the Nepenthes ones since they're all the same material?

Though, I'm also debating the double cloth ones as well. Does anyone have experience with any of these?

I'm just trying to go for the pair that's more comfortable.

I would say Bodega is the closest.

I'm a big fan of double cloth. I'm getting a pair of them soon in olive as well :)

Do you have a pair?

I'm debating between these and the olive double cloth, which I'm reading gets softer over time.
Tried on the FA Olive HB Twill at Today Clothing this weekend, and have had a pair of Olive Double Cloth Fatigues since the fabric was first being used

Get the HB Twill, hangs infinitely better. I don't love or hate the double cloth, it's just so visually flat and stiff even after 60 or so washes (though it's bulletproof for sure)

yeah, that photo you linked me earlier is really pushing me toward them

I have the new fatigues in the same fabric and I love the feel of them. They’re medium weight and like random thought said, they hang really nice.

This is also coming from someone who really loves the double cloth fabric.

This is a winner:


Kafka has a nice buy this season. I might have to spring for one of their special work shirt makeups:

For pants I much prefer HBT to double-cloth. Sits so much better.

Here's a bad picture for ya. I have the long logger in the same fabric and it goes good as a 'suit.' :)

You honestly can't go wrong with either fabric though.

Okay, wait. So in regards to the FA pants lmao:

So when y'all say sit better, what exactly do you mean? Like it drapes good? They're not as stiff or something?

I just don't wanna get them and then have to wait another week if I want the olive double cotton ones as well lmao
