FW22 is really speaking to me, want to see more of that "pea coat" which is way too cool to be described as such

On a related note, I’ve been wearing these HW fatigues at least 3 times a week.
I picked up a pair from @Drinkwaters recently and I find myself not wanting to wear anything else

Meh, this looked a lot better in my head. I need some work-appropriate pants that would make this look good.

cord bedford and HCT cover vest

(Also, I did not go to Harvard; they just gave me a free lanyard :p)
Watch out, Harvard alums may approach you in public and ask what your concentration was and if you comped The Crimson.

Olive and khaki (of any shade) don't complement one another that well. The first time I tried it I felt like I must be doing something wrong because in my mind it was such a staple of EG; I then went through every lookbook I had and found shockingly few instances of it––only one comes to mind.

With that jacket, I think some pale khaki or dark brown pants would fit more in the typical EG wheelhouse.

FW22 is a love letter to my neck of the woods! Best season I've seen in a short while. Reminds me of WWM's Hunter Noir season from over a decade ago. But more surf than turf. Almost makes up for this upcoming SS22 season. Almost

I feel like FW21 was so good that FW22 feels a bit lacking in comparison? Really dug the warm tones and checked fabrics from FW21 and FW22 seems to focus more on solid black and navy. Maybe it’s just because I own too many blue clothes? Although I’m usually more excited for seeing the individual pieces as they hit the shops than the look book. Also, I think I like this new version of the FA Pant with the flattened pockets better than the current iteration!

A poorly lit fit pic to counteract my shitposting.

That's not khaki, and khaki and olive are a classic combination.

I've always liked this rust-green fit with an EG jacket:

I’ve seen some retailers list the Bedford as unisex sizing. Is the jacket really designed with unisex fitting in mind?

The Bedford can be worn unisex, but the sizing is graded for men. Generally, I would say add 2 sizes and that's the women's equivalent (i.e. Men's S = Women's L). Also, keep in mind it's a boxy cut.

If that works for your body type or you don't mind an oversized fit, then yes a woman could wear a Bedford.
