If you are a size Large, you should check buy and sell for BNWT NBs and Bedfords.

I understand there may be more size Larges listed in the next few days.
Interesting! If somehow this mysterious seller reads this, then I hope they feel free to drop med a PM. Maybe we can work something out. (Yes, I am a size L)

Sorry to hijack the thread but I need some advise from you EG heads.

Currently looking at these Bedfords/NB in heavy ripstop and corduroy. Should I or shouldn't I? What's the difference between the NB and Bedford? Same size in both or do people size down/up in one of them?

What are you going for, exactly?

The New Bedford is said to look a tad more sport coat-y, a little less chore coat-y, than the original Bedford (which is a sublime combination of both).

I would demand accurate measurements from the store/seller and not put stock in what anyone says about fit, as things change season to season.

I’d also go with corduroy first, as it’s more versatile for a standard workplace, and they do cord really well, IMO. My ripstop items seem to look faded/worn faster than anything else and often carry more of an overt military vibe than I’m looking for. I’d seek out a high count twill version first before branching out into ripstop.

Bought two watch caps this season from two different retailers.
One of them came with a regular tag, and the other one with a tag, never seen before.
Seen this before?

Has anyone here picked up anything in the flight satin nylon, or have any fit pics of it being worn? Doesn't seem to have sold too well, so is available now at discount in some of the styles that I like (e.g., explorer). The fabric interests me, but I'm uncertain whether I'd find it easily wearable. I also like the green, but am currently thinking of picking up a piece in black. Any thoughts, pics, etc. by people that have handled (or own) pieces in this fabric?

I was surprised to come across some random fluff in iPhone news that indicated the fabric is headed for popularity due to its adoption by the Kardashians. This winter, they’re sporting those puffy vests and bombers; next it will trickle down through the Instagram ranks and it’s possible that soon, we’ll all be dressed like middle schoolers.

Where is the green satin Bedford on sale, btw? I can’t even find it at regular prices.

I posted this several months ago. (not the best photo, but you can kinda tell if you zoom in) The fabic is kinda like what you would see in a coach's jacket. I think it's a pretty neat piece and can can be worn pretty easily

You're getting closer and closer to ranting about QAnon with every post

Right. He asked about the popularity of flight satin, and I mentioned an article about how it will soon become popular after a Kardashian wore it.

It wasn’t my position, but believing something will catch on after a celebrity does it is hardly conspiracy thinking.
