    Thanks man. I'm trying to decide between that and the belted shawl knit jacket. The latter seems to run bigger but I like the c/d better.

    The latter runs really big. Like I'm on the border of XL/XXL and my XL is very roomy, but in a very nice way. One of my favorite pieces.

    Took a little longer than I would've liked to get a shot in the Mackinaw Corduroy Parka (and still not a great shot), but I'm very happy with this peice.

    I am looking to get my first EG piece, looking at the USN Pant in either tan or olive herringbone. I can't find a site that discloses the weight of the fabric. I have some RRL officers chino and wanted to know how the herringbone compares. I assume the construction quality is similar. Also what are the 2 button holes at the bottom of the pants for?

    thx!

    @DuckOB not particularly heavy. I don't have the RRL chino but I'd say its a very standard medium-weight chino. Definitely lighter than a brushed cotton or cotton moleskin. You can wear it well into spring.

    As far as I know, the holes are for drawstrings... if it had them. Fatigue pants have a similar design. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong, I've always found it was a curious detail too.)

    @nickp thanks for the info. Yeah, if i can wear them thru spring then perfect. The draw strings holes makes sense, curious, but i guess authentic.

    thanks!

    Yes, must be cut really big because I just got a black moleskin bedford that's XL and it's almost too tight even though I was kind of drowning in the xxl tweed.

    Also just ordered a shawl. I slept on it a bit too long so there was only a brown flannel left on TBB, but that will probably work with a couple of things I own. The question is, will I man up enough to dress like an old woman or will I just wear it under my jackets?

    That's a nice collection of Bedffords you have :) Which is your favourite/do you wear the most? I picked up the olive moleskin and am waiting on the brown/green herringbone to come in. I was just offered the grey wool tweed and am contemplating if I should spring for it.

    Edit: For those who own the wool herringbone/tweed bedfords, are they too warm to wear over an oxford shirt indoors/office environment?

    I own the tweed. It is quite thick and warm. It's not completely ridiculous to wear it like that, but it's not really the best idea. It feels a little more outerwear than sport coat.

    Good to know, thanks! This year's tweed is supposed to be substantially thicker than the herringbone right? That would explain its use as outerwear.

    Thanks! There's no way I can choose a favorite. I try to rotate them daily so they all get worn a lot. As mentioned above the tweed is quite thick. It's even thicker than the brown/green herringbone. I've worn them all indoors except the tweed and was comfortable with just an ocbd underneath. I've also worn them with temps as low as the 30's with just an ocbd underneath and a CDW vest on top.

    Has anyone seen the navy field parka available in a size medium? I still see the grey one at a few retailers but afraid the color will be too light in person and will get dirty fast.

    Fortunately for me it's on the right side of almost too tight, it looks just about perfect. It could be more comfortable but I've still been wearing it almost daily since I got it. I'll just take it as extra motivation to get back into shape.

    I wear the Tweed over only a shirt. It's great in a warm and comfy kind of way like an old baggy sweater. I've also worn it as an overcoat over a blazer but it's also not quite long/big enough to work effectively.

    Would anyone be willing to proxy an EG item for me from the States to the UK ?

    why does the USN pant have button holes at the cuff?
