    I wonder how bulky the EG M-65 type coat is. It's hard to tell from the website, since it is over so many other layers, but it seems like it might not be the slimmest option. I'd like to pick up one of the H&M jackets myself, but not being able to try them on in person is a bit of a deterrent.
    Judging by the pictures on StevenAlan.com, it's pretty bulky. EG stuff is generally not intended to be slim and fitted.

    i got one at zara yesterday for a cool $40
    I dunno which one you bought, but I picked up a M65 from Zara today, it was $100 though, but was really nice, with great fit and good details. It's also very slim, I picked up a XXL which seemed to be a very slim 43-44.

    Now I'm going to have to make a trip to the mall and check out what Zara has... thanks a lot. [​IMG]

    Any pictures of the Zara one? Have neither a H&M or Zara here but if I find one appealing enough, I'm gonna have to find a means to get it.

    I got one of the h&m ones, they're a little roomy in the chest (in a Lg) and so am I. other than that, they look retty decent for $40. I spraypainted mine black (over black) so it looks different.

    i bought a khaki m65 at h&m a few weeks ago and it fits perfect in the chest. in fact i was very happy they were being sold in exact chest measurements than in universal S, M, L, XL. i have a 38" chest, bought a 36" cuz i felt they ran a little large and it fits perfect.

    Was there today, it was practically a zoo...Wasnt sure which jacket the m65 one was, as they are spread out everywhere and everything is disorganized. Almost had aneurism due to the extreme disarray. Could someone please post a picture of the jacket, so if I decided to go back I can get in and out without having to flip-a-bitch and walk out..
