    I hope that I'm not breaking any rules here but I am selling a navy field parka in size large. I've posted a thread in the sales section - please check it if interested.

    Hey, I've been thinking about one of the Workaday utility jackets, and i'm wondering if anyone can comment on sizing? I've got couple work shirts in Large that fit well, if not exactly as slim as I like (but i'm fine with), and take a large in most everything else. I have on workshirt in Medium, and it fits well but is a little short, as i'm 6'3, with about a 42" chest. I'm thinking large, but I don't want it to be too billowy. I'm pretty tall and athletic/slim build.

    The utility jackets have a boxy fit, I sized down from S to XS for mine and it worked well, that being said I'm only 5' 6". As tall as you are I would not recommend it, the sleeves would probably end up comically short on you.

    You should go with the Large. It is a boxy fit, but sizing down will likely result in a fit too tight in the chest and shoulders.

    Note that I have found sizing on the Utility jacket to be a little inconsistent from season to season.

    Yeah I would say a large would be a solid choice. Like mentioned, they are a bit boxy and work well for layers. I'm about 5'10 with a similar build and have enough room in a size M for a sweatshirt underneath, but it also still looks fine over just a t shirt. Worst comes to it, toss the L in a hot wash and tumble dry and it should do just the trick

    Thanks for the tips guys, i'll look at the large more seriously then. Length is my main concern, as always. I think the utility is olive sateen would be such a versatile piece, near year round wear.

    Double Cloth Bedford. Any comments on the fit? I'm thinking of sussing a tailor to lengthen the sleeve for me. There is sufficient room in the body for me to chuck on an extra sweater hence I figured this size (XS) works for me. I'm usually either an S or XS. I did not get to try the S as there was none left.

    @teojhn -- size up. It looks like you're gonna explode through the buttons.

    Was able to acquire a mini-grail (FW12 HomeSpun Bedford) but unfortunately it's a little tight. Nicer than expected though, first EG F/W piece for me and everything down to the buttons + button coils are expectedly robust. Figure I would post here since this is probably someone's grail as well - its an L if anyone is interested. It's the same one KGFan posted way back in one of his many break the internet fits.

    @tobiasfunke @JilSlander Thanks for the tip. This is just another view of the same bedford but with a shorter length shirt under. Somehow suddenly the sleeve doesn't feel as short. Weird. Yesterday's picture was with an untucked oxford bd. I guess if there is really no chance I will be passing it on and wait for the "right one".

    i didn't size down (L in bedfords, L in HL Parka) - i'm 99% pleased with the fit but there is a part of me that obsesses over the position of shoulder seams and 1% of me thinks the seams sit a slight bit "down" on my shoulders, however, with winter layers beneath (there is NO insulation so layers are a necessity) the shoulder fit is fine, which I suppose is the point...haha

    cheers

    M51 style Fishtail parkas are designed to be oversized and typically have a larger shoulder measurement. They are designed to be worn with layers underneath.

    The fit looks good. Definitely not as oversized as alot of the model pics i've seen online. What layers are you wearing underneath it ?
