    This question is so bad it might hurt, but what is EG? Is Engineered Garments a brand or just anything you had tailored? The brand seems pretty rare and hard to find so thats why im not sure....

    ^Nice. I alter my Fatigues very similarly (think I do a gradual taper to a 16" bottom). Much happier with them as a result.

    Seeing that C-1 Vest physically pains me. It's the grail that got away. If anyone ever sees it in an XL...

    Anyways, you look great. Welcome to this thread.

    @Loop Skywalker Always leave the bottom button on vests undone. The way a fully buttoned vest bisects people always look out of place to me. That said, welcome.

    Does anyone here have the Highland parka (the fishtail)? I am thinking about picking one up this season or next, likely in olive sateen, and have no where to try it on in person. Would love to hear some comments about it, and would love some fit pics as well. It's hard to find anything on it online really, except that one detailed youtube video.

    Boss, there is a very detailed review video few pages back. A super cool parka indeed.

    I've already watched that, but watched it again, thanks to your reminder. Ya its pretty awesome.


    Can anyone comment on sizing? It seems to fit like a tent based on the measurements provided at most places, but i'm assuming thats how it's designed, and most people still go TTS? I'm normally a large, and have a 40" chest. Large seems to have a chest of well over 50".

    Hi! I'm they guy who made that parka video (sorry for the speaking voice btw, will fix for next time!)

    I'm 5'7" and 160 lbs and I'm wearing size XS. EG is a real treat for me and so don't own anything else yet, but I've tried on some of the shirts and stuff and I seem to be about a medium, as I am for most brands. Would have considered sizing down to XXS if that was possible. For me the sizing concerns had to do with length more than anything, this parka would definitely be at its best on a taller guy imo. But as I said, I'm only 5"7" myself and still love it. If you're into mod type looks like in Quadrophenia or whatever the parka fits very similiar--it is definitely a bit tent-like, and deliberately so. As such, super easy to layer underneath, I wear a down overshirt type thing underneath and I'd say I'm good to at least -5 celsius, more if I chose to get a heftier midlayer, which the parka could certainly accomodate.

    I feel like it took me awhile to get how to wear it. I don't like at all the pieces I chose for the video. I've been going with slightly slimmer and more tapered black jeans, boots and a chunky scarf. I recently bought super baggy wool pants with an extreme taper down to a hem just above the ankle to wear with the parka. I hope to post a fit pic soon...

    When I first made the video I had just got it. Now, some months later I can safely say it's been exactly what I hoped it would be. I basically put it on every time I step out the door and it makes me feel like I am on my shit every time I do so. I did notice that when it released, the smaller sizes went super quick and the larger sizes have continued to sit. I don't know if EG will respond to that, but maybe they'll cut it a bit smaller for the upcoming season? There is a brief glimpse of it in the SS15 vid that came out.

    Sorry if this is longwinded (damn parka really brings out the OCD in me!) and very big thanks to the guy who posted the video and thanks to those with a kind word, means a lot.
