    Just got the ripstop fatigues from the Bureau. They are a lovely dark olive colour I can see myself wearing a lot compared to the usual reverse sateen ones. Too bad I have to send them back because I am swimming in the 32s. Note to self: never trust Japanese sizing guides. Maybe I'm not lanky enough to pull off their oversized styling.

    hmm, i thought they ran slim/TTS this season? what's your waist measurement/normal size please? i have a few pairs of olive EG pants but the fatigues look a particularly tempting shade.

    impressions on the fatigues seem to be acrossed the board - some people say they're slim, I found my 32s in the flat twill were fairly TTS. perhaps a bit snug at first, they stretched / loosened up a bit after a wear. I imagine a hot wash would bring them back down but if you wash them cold they should stay where they're at.

    it's possible the ripstop is built a bit fuller on the basis of fabric. flat twill might have accounted for stretch, maybe they didn't expect the ripstop to expand much.

    I find this season's fatigues to have a standard fit at waist and be very slim in the calves.

    I'm a 30, but went for the 32s. The top block is the same as previous fatigues, just that the bottom leg and hem opening is much slimmer. So I would advise getting your normal size.

    That seems contradictory. You are are a 30 and went with a 32 seems sized up. I'm a 32 and went with a 34 and the fit is comparable to FW14 fatigue in 32 with slimmer fit in the leg like you said.

    +1 on Mohawk. Had a great shopping experience there. Nicely edited selection. Good guys to chat with. Picked up some orSlow stuff that works really with EG.

    Why didn't you just buy a 30 ?

    Eh, don't want to confuse anybody. I sized up because I read they ran slim and they ended up too big for me in the top block. Also, Loftman normally models a 30, but modeled a 32 for the ripstops. So I'm saying stick TTS since the waist/hip measurements are about the same as past season's and just deal with the slimmer lower leg. Just a heads up. At least for the cotton ripstops.

    Same results here and surprised it is not yet online anywhere. I would assume that we will see more online pics soon. Here is the lookbook picture, followed by collar detail and the man who gave it its name.

    Anyone Stateside have the Ghurka jacket preferably in the Tan color?
    Another question - it was always stated that the material was French cotton yet The Bureau Belfast has a detailed picture where the label seems to show Rayon/Polyester blend?
