As someone with no experience with EG shorts, but has been going back-and-forth between the two this season, this was very helpful. Thanks!
I tried it on again yesterday and I'm definitely leaning toward keeping it. Great length, versatile color, wears well whether with jeans & t-shirt, or layering (like with the Dayton).Nice - I'm sure you'll love it. I think the black cotton/linen one looks great too, but I like the more substantial look, but still lightweight feel of the HCT.
I just received the Shop Coat in Khaki High Count Twill and Dayton in Navy Cotton Linen. Both are fantastic and I highly recommend any iteration of either piece. The shops I could find stocking both items were running low or out of both the Dayton and Shop Coat, so I ordered both thinking I would only keep one. If anyone wants a shot at the Shop Coat - Size Medium - before I send it back to Nepenthes next week, let me know. I think they were almost out (if this was not...
Hmmm. After looking at what I could find among U.S. stockist measurements (all the natural color linen/cotton), I can see what you are saying. Thanks for the input. In Medium, I found the following:Independence has it at 20.75" pit to pit; 18.5" shoulderGentry has it at 21"/ 18"Forward has 21" / 18"I was thinking it seemed large because originally I was looking at the High Count Twill Khaki from Loftman, where it is listed at 56.5cm/48cm (~22.25"/18.9")
Can anyone with the Shop Coat comment on fit? Looking at measurements online, it seems it might fit fairly large. I'm M-L in EG shirting, but usually most comfortable in medium, but a often a Large in jackets like Bedford, Brookline, and Andover. I'm wondering what would work best - not sure I'm looking for super layering abilities or a definite oversized fit.
A couple pieces I'm not dying to get rid of, but because I wear them with less frequency than some of my others, would be open to trade. Just putting them out there to see what comes back. I'm mainly interested in EG outerwear, size L (though possibly an M here and there), but the right blazers (L) and/or shirting (M/L) and trousers (32-34) could convince me. I'll post some actual pics later and am happy to send more pictures and measurements to interested parties. FW11...
I successfully ordered a pair of the tan yesterday by email. At the time they had a full color run in 9.5s (my hopeful size).
I've always refrained from posting pics, and mainly lurked, but I love this thread so figured I'd give it a whirl. FW14 Floral Chambray BD Angler shirt, I think, but not sure of the season.
Today I received the Navy Fair Isle Shawl Collar Cardigan and I love it. The fleece is thick and warm so that it could work as outwear during chilly fall nights and of course for layering during the winter. And it's not as cropped as the jersey knits seem to be. From wearing it and looking at online measurements, the fair isle fleece seems to be about 1" longer than the jersey knits. Also, I picked it up from Working Title and I highly recommend shopping with them....
I was looking around the other day for Chup on sale and couldn't find any - I think J Crew is generally the best bet. I'm sure some retailers will put them on sale end-of-season, but haven't seen any in mid-season sales.Earlier today J Crew had Chup x Smartwool on sale for 24.99 + 40% off - I picked up 3 pair for $14.99 each. I'm not seeing them on the site anymore though. Might be worth checking back to see if they pop up again.
