    1. This is the only piece I've seen on marrkt with a comment "the jacket fits generous"
    2. People here have posted that it fits larger than other NC outerwear, including owners like turunen

    As soon as I receive my Geddes I'll let you know how's the fit. I got a 48. But as gdl suggests, I am pretty sure it is oversized and didn't even consider going for a 50 (and I'm rather athletic with wide shoulders).

    That'd be great. Thanks.

    1 Me too. I was just pointing out they said "maybe" as I think it could go either way. They also say "maybe" if they're out of your size.
    2 Again, I don't doubt that. Also, IIRC turunen took the same size in the Geddes as he did the Cameraman.

    I tried to pull up the endclothing link, but it's no longer aviable. Ditto for Oi Polloi. Either way I trust Marrkt's sizing in terms of the measurements. I'm just not sure I should size down based on them and based on what I'd be wearing.

    So the Kara Koram fits me perfectly in size 50. Is the concensus that the Geddes fits a full size larger? I have mailed marrkt to see if they could send me a 48 rather than the 50 that I bought. If it's a full size larger than the other Cabourn/Bauer pieces and they are happy to switch my order I will go with the 48. If it's just a bit bigger, I may stick with the 50. From reading here, I'm leaning towards the 48 but ln-cc had a picture of a much skinnier model than me wearing the 48 which led me to the 50 in the first place.

    I'm not sure what I actually ordered. I picked up that tan hunting jacket that popped up for a second in my size. But when I checked around different websites to bask in my new purchase I found two different versions of the jacket. One was a tan tweed, the other was the tan canvas. I'm pretty sure I could see the fox brothers logo on the jacket when I bought it, but I cant go back and look at the actual thing I bought. The only other place I have seen the tan fox brothers tweed one was on the nigel cabourn blog. Anyone know if it was the tweed or the canvas that was on marrkt?

    Either way I'll be happy, got a killer deal.

    As an aside, did the black raw tweed hunting jacket ever pop up on marrkt? I missed the very start of the sale because I thought it would start at 7 my time and it ended up starting an hour earlier. If anyone has one, I know someone who would really like to take that off your hands in a 48 if you are willing to part with it.

    Hello all,

    It does come up on the larger side. All my Cabourn items (jumpers, jackets) are in a 48 and the 48 seems a little oversized. I tried it with a shawl collar cardigan and/or a sweatshirt underneath and I could still have enough room to put another layer on (which I would not do). I have an Everest parka in a 48 from a few years back and that is comfortable but the Geddes in a 48 is much more roomy than that.

    This was a military flight parka that pilots wore in WW2 so they were worn over sized. Depends on the look you are after.
