    Shay,

    Can you tell me what those olive green pants are under the plexus tag shoftshell?

    cheers

    Lewis, pants are always hard to tell but I’m 95% sure those are the 686 Reserved Raw Pant in the Army Denim colorway which is Forest Bailey’s signature colorway too.

    thanks shay, do you know what the fit is like on the raw’s? I’m looking for a slightly slim and tapered army green pant.

    what is the fit like on the LTD Flannel jacket? if its baggy then it just kills the whole setup but if its a slimmer, tighter fit then its rediculously sick!

  6. May 08, 2011

    Lewis, good question. The Raw’s are a tailored fit but it doesn’t say anything more on it.

    Shane, hard to say it doesn’t say if it’s fitted or tailored so it’d need to be checked out in person.
