    Just received my Bedford in the gray homespun jersey. I realize now that it is basically the most awesome cardigan ever. Given the weather in Cleveland this winter, that will come in handy. Thanks Drinkwaters.

    It might be worth checking out a few army surplus stores if you just want something similar.

    Could've sworn somebody answered this. They're on sale at the Bureau Belfast.
    I tried it on when I went it for the sale. Absolutely amazing. Had my heart set on the trail parka, and my wallet wouldn't allow for both. Very jealous of you!

    What's the deal with FWK? I know it's for women, but Are the pieces cut differently or just smaller? Not that many places buy xs me a pieces, but the smaller women's pieces are more readily available.

    pretty sure they are cut differently. I've looked at a couple shirts at Nepenthes before and they definitely seemed to have a more feminine cut to them I thought. Don't know for sure though.

    I love those jackets, wearing my green one today. Don't really understand the snap and button pocket closure thing going on...actually a little annoying when I want to use those pockets...but whatever, the jacket is awesome. Love the herringbone lining, corduroy, trim, sleeve lining etc. Also the zipper pockets are very useful...I've even used the little sleeve one a few times for random things.

    I have a question about the USN pant sizing:

    The only pair of EG pants I've ever tried on were desert pants from one or two FW seasons ago. Those pants were pretty high waisted, but fit me really well. Would those more familiar with EG pant sizing recommend a 32 in the USN pants as well, or would a 30 be a better fit? I'd prefer not to go for the oversized EG style fit, as I really like the slimmer look of these pants in fits I've seen. Any direction will be appreciated!

    I've got the fw11 parka and totally agree. It was the first EG piece I got and I've been hooked ever since. I paid full retail and don't regret it at all.

    I've tried FWK stuff and it is cut slightly different. They button up the same as men's though, left over right. Size 2 is more or less equal to XS.

    I couldn't tell you. I posted in this thread about 100 posts ago about that specific garment in an XL and somebody from Drinkwater's replied that they had. Perhaps one of the other affiliate vendors in this thread will be as kind to you.

    I would agree with the previous comments on the shirting cut, but imho the jacket/coats are cut pretty much the same only smaller, most noticeable in the sleeve width.
    If you're skinny though it should work but if you're muscular then watch out as the bicep curl and back stretch will be challenging.
