Yes, both the body an the sleeves are roomier than those of the chore coats (inluding the linen chores) in the same size.
Agreed. I particularly like the jungle jacket's more billowy sleeves, especially rolled up a few times for a cropped length somewhere in the forearm. I wouldn't have sized mine down, and based on my fit, I wonder if couple of the product photos on the gent in France might even be relatively sized up.

My chores fit well, but I've always felt like the sleeves are a little narrower than I might like - apart from the wool twill, which has more give and feels a little more generous. They're still cut better than any others I've come across. I've sized up the new cotton-linen fatigue jacket (just a remake of the USMC P41) to match measurements of the jungle jacket and am hoping that'll work well.

Following up from @yungchomsky 's post several weeks back, I recently picked up a pre-owned pair of cotton Games trousers in what was labelled on the tag as "dark navy" from AW2019. They do indeed have a MUCH higher rise than the current Games offerings, and I really wish Drake's would go back to that design as they are (to me) a perfect fitting pant.

Good afternoon everyone,

I just received the Khaki Ripstop Jungle Jacket from a few seasons ago (Made in Italy) and the size 38 fits like a regular 38, not particularly roomier than Chores or other jackets... They must have change the pattern a bit when they started producing these jackets in Portugal.

Will post measurements later, but I'm going to sell it probably, I'm not a huge fan of the fit, I actually think my orSlow Jungle Jacket in a size 2 fits better... So still on the hunt for one of these but Made in Portugal.

Damn, bummer. Yeah they must've changed the pattern then. Mine from this season I took the size down in because it was so large, and it still fits pretty oversized. Measurements would be interesting to compare if you get the chance.

If you have even remotely broad shoulders or chest I’d advice to size up. I’m M/L/38/40/15.75 in Drake’s tops. My balmacaan is 40 and it is a bit thight from shoulders and chest. 42 would probably be perfect and I could imagine 44 would give that slouchy fit of Drake’s lookbooks.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Does anyone here have an easyday OCBD? If you do, I'm in need of a favour; Can I get measurements on the collar point lengths and rear collar height? I'll be really appreciative of anyone who could help me out with these measurements.
