thanks, man! Its the Nigel cabourn - second hand from marrkt. can hardly take it off - could live in it!
I've been eyeing these for a long while. Thoughts on sizing? I'm generally a 50 in Nigel Cabourn, could size up to a 52 for the slimmer things

I have these! Been wanting fatigues in duck canvas for a long time. Got them in black and brown. If you're not familiar with duck canvas, it's a plain weave, so it doesn't drape as cleanly or smoothly as a twill weave such as denim. Looks a little frumpy at first because it bunches and folds, but this'll change as it breaks in and moulds to your body. Will wear really well with age and develop a nice patina

Thanks for the reply! How did you size in them?

I stick with M / 34 with EG. Has drawstrings so easy to tighten. Might be able to squeeze my waist into an S, but prefer a bit too big than a bit too small
Indeed. I’m stuck between getting sz large or medium. I guess large considering they have drawstrings. How’s the inseam on them?

I'm shy of 5'11". For the medium, I wear them pretty high up on the waist, and that gives me a single fold at the hem

The duck canvas is excellent. Makes for a great pair of fatigues. EG also has a matching light brown duck canvas Bedford.
Thanks for the info. I’m just torn between medium and large. I also like the black ones too…and the FA pants lol
Also, I just came across the coated version of the fatigue pants. Anyone with experience with those?
