1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    I paid $215 for mine from Gary..the measurements are similar to the charcoal ones from last fall but fit much much slimmer due to the lining. They are very warm and comfortable.

    ...the fatigue pants? are they vanity sized or is the waist on the Small a true 32"? leg opening?
    Me too... I'm curious if I'd fit into a S, as I universally wear a 32 in EG, and an 'S' in their Norwegian Army shorts. Do they size them in anticipation of shrinkage?

    Gary provided me with measurements for the fatigue pants in S/32:

    Waist 32"
    Inseam 33"

    I'm wearing mine after one wash, cold water, hang dry. There was no shrinkage at all and they washed well. I can already see some fading on edges and corners which I was hoping would happen.

    Small is exact 32"

    Thanks, I worried because some of the japanese sites seemed to have 'washed' measurements that differed from 'raw' in that style.

    Cords came today. I ordered a 34 & a 36 because I wasn't sure about the fit. I think I'm going to end up keeping the 36 as the 34's are just too slim for me. The waist would be better on the 34, but I can't get them over my thighs. Really slim in the top block. The 36's are a slouchier slim fit, which I think will be nice with the type of pants we're talking about.

    Measurements of the 34:
    Waist: 34"
    Inseam: 32.5"
    Hem: 8"
    Knee: 8.75"
    Thigh: 12"

    Apparently, those are the same measurements as previous seasons. The S.A. at Odin told me that they don't change the cut over time. Still, great pair of pants. They're a very, very dark brown. I'll post pics tomorrow (left the camera at work).

    Retail is $159 and both stores had, as of Sunday, a full size run in both the brown and in black.
