Really tempted to get the field parka, price is steep though
Anyone seen fit pics of it yet?
There's a lot of people on here who don't like to hear EG critisized, but i have mentioned numerous times that some of their items ar so badly tailored they can't possibly fit a regular sized person. This jacket is the perfect example. The chest measurement is v.small on the large being 20.5" the shoulder to shoulder is over 19" which is a massive measurement for such a small pit-pit. Then there's long arms & length to add to a really poor fitting garment. This jacket swamps you, but who knows the medium may be too tight in the chest but great elsewhere, but thats modern day eg for you.
Thank you for your input. I'm afraid I agree, I will.
I totally agree. Some items have strange measurements in relation to each other. Judging by the back and sleeve length this seems to be for tall and slim people.
I may have to shorten the sleeves of the medium, but after that I believe it should fit perfectly.
Sad news is that I cannot return it for an exchange because I had Odin remove the pricetags and receipts to avoid customs so it was final sale.
Thought I'd hear with you SF guys first. Letting it go for 400 + shipping worldwide. Retail is 455.
Hey, I might take this off your hands. Will PM you.
I sympathise. Such a shame. It's a great looking jacket and hopefully you get the medium!
I literally just purchased a field jacket in an olive I'm sorta eating what I said a few posts ago about it. But I've realised just how spectacular it looks. The navy one was also something to behold and I was losing my mind what colour to choose. But I think olive was the way to go. Ill post fit pics and measurements once I get it.
Workaday fatigues forever.
I'm not sure if this is the one you are talking about, but I tried on the 60/40 field jacket at Nepenthes. It's really nice. I already have a similar weight 60/40 from Mt. Rainier so I opted for the cotton flight jacket instead. Can't go wrong with either though.
How is the sizing?
I found it TTS. I'm a true small, and I tried on a small and it fit pretty well. It's very functional with the zip-out skirt and snap buttons, detachable hood, etc. I don't think they offer an XS, but if they did, that's where I find the sizing gets weird and I can literally be anywhere from an XS to a M with EG.
Caliroots in Sweden has started carrying EG this S/S.
Has anyone seen the Reverse Sateen pants this season in person.
Could you please comment on how the weight of the fabric compares with pants like the Type 7:
I am looking for a something to wear in Fall months as well.
Can't offer a comparison to Type 7's but I can say that they won't be any good for Fall wear. They are very, very lightweight, almost nylon-esque.
I know this is kind of a long shot but does anybody know where I can get a L or XL paisley camp shirt from SS 12?
Fred segal trend had an xl a while back but it's probably gone now. I would have bought it but it was super short and small in general (for an xl)
