Does anyone have anything from last season in the navy moleskin? Is it a dust/ lint magnet? I’m eyeing up the Bedford in that make-up but can’t try on in person, if it shows up every speck of dust then that’s a deal-breaker for me.
Not navy but I have an olive moleskin jacket from FW22, and lint/dust/cat hair is not an issue with that particular jacket

no issues with moleskin. i've found the corduroy stuff to be a lint magnet.

Thanks both. I have some moleskin trousers but they’re a light sand colour so no issues with dust etc. as it doesn’t really show on them. Hoping that will be the case with the navy too.

I don’t have any navy, but I have the black moleskin fatigues and they attract lint more than any item I own.

I had to get rid of pair of black EG sateen fatigues a few years back for the very same reason (in case it wasn’t obvious, it really bothers me!). I have some stonewash black Orslow fatigues and it’s not a problem because they’re basically grey so the lint doesn’t show up. It’s more the colour that makes it a potential issue but I’m also wondering if the fact that it’s a jacket that I’m looking at will negate some of this? Gravity, less contact with other surfaces etc? I have a navy patchwork Bedford from a few years ago and it’s not a problem….

I also love EG's "womens" pieces. But sadly their largest size is still too small for me. Looks great on you though!

Thank you! And yeah, I am right at the edge of how the womens pieces fit. I am using size 3 and the sleeves are maybe a tad too short and shoulders can be tight on some garments, but I really like their shape/flow.

Why size you wear in "mens" EG?

sorry to ask a sizing question in here, but would a L be okay in the (camo) flat twill olive fatigues if i wear a 34" in most other labels across the board, or would i need a M? i gave up with EG for a a while due to the inconsistent sizing between recent seasons (i own tops in S/M/L) and returns being almost impossible from where i used to live. i know sizing is much larger now than it was when i first started buying the brand over a decade ago.

edit: i'm 186cm and about 82kg if it makes a difference.

I'd go with the medium. I wear a 33 and the mediums are slightly too big for me. The drawstring on the fatigues or a belt helps.
