    Stopped by MAC (Modern Appealing Clothing) in San Francisco after work today and picked up the black Bedford in a large. I'm normally a medium, but the bedfords in black and in herringbone have a lot of padding on the inside, making it snugger. I tried it in a medium and it was just too snug. No room for layering. So if you're out there looking for a medium, and are on the larger end of medium, I'd definitely go for a large. MAC still has the herringbone in large and the black in medium. Cost = $385 (before tax). They've also got the Bedford in blue (L and XL) and brown (M, L, XL) . These don't have any padding on the inside and so the medium fit me to a T. They're more of a thick canvas type, or "Heavy Bedford Cord" according to the link below. Really nice, heavy material, requiring a little break in. Check 'em out here: http://www.nalu.co.jp/collection/eg/...djkthcord.html They had the field shirt jacket, not sure what sizes though. I saw an L out on the floor, but didn't ask what they had in the back: http://www.nalu.co.jp/collection/eg/...dshtjktpc.html And the Engineer's jacket (pictured in the first post above by LA Guy) in Herringbone, XL and maybe a small. And one more thing, the guy that was helping me said that he'd already seen a little of the spring line and it's gonna be pretty damn nice. Didn't give me any more details than that.

    Damn now I'm liking that shirt field jacket! If it's black and a large I might just scoop it up, do you remember the price? I could wear that a lot here in the winter b/c it's not too thick.

    The shirt field jacket, I'd guess, was about $325. Might have been a little less ($298?) because it wasn't as thick as the other stuff. It was black and i'm pretty sure it was a large, but you can give 'em a call tomorrow though to check.

    thanks tim I think I love you man *hug*

    EG is bringing the heat with all these pimpin jackets, too bad their us site sucks and hardly shows anything.

    Now that I've found a jacket I like, do any affiliates have it or do I pick it up from MAC fellas?

    Glad you like that jacket. I have last years version, which is pretty much the same but lacks the neck latch detail, which shows up on everything from hoodies to jackets this year, in the "homespun" material. Great jacket. Brian SD and a couple of other guys have the same jacket, and we all wear it differently. Anyway, nice piece. It was $235 last year. Try Peasant in Birmingham MI, before MAC.

    If you guys all have it then I can't get it [​IMG] Anyone contact info for peasant and who I should ask for? Love the little neck latch.

    Dusty, did you get your bedford herringbone? And how does it fit?

    Yes and awesomely. I was afraid of all this boxy talk surrounding EG, but the jacket is not only on the slim side, it's my favorite kind of slim: more straight through the body than hourglassy. My only complaint is that the fabric is 20% nylon instead of 100% wool (why do they do that?), but that's not a big deal.

    20% nylon in the shell of the herringbone bedford? The black bedford has a 100% wool shell. What does the nylon add to the material?

    Durability? I don't know, but I think every piece of wool outerwear I own (mostly J Crew) has a 10 or 20% nylon component.

    interesting. i figured the herringbone Bedford was wool but i didn't know that the solid colored Bedfords were also wool. for some reason i thought they were cotton. maybe that's just for the S/S season.

    dusty, is the wool thick or thin? say compared to a standard issue Navy peacoat.

    Guys, Tokuro has been getting flooded with emails at his PERSONAL address so please limit them to the basic [email protected] address. He is spending more time reading and responding to emails than making my clothes!

    Anyway, got off the phone with Gary and I have to say he is an A1 gentlemen. He offered so many ways to help it's a mystery why we don't have more people like him. He is going to see if he can get me the black field jacket because EG practically has no goodies in stock right now. It will be about a week or two until we get an update on quantities so please be patient guys.

    Gary, great speaking with you btw. Beers on my if I ever come to town (I have a couple of buddies in Newton btw).
