Linen should be cool and comfortable - you don't want it skin tight. And the fabric doesn't flex or give at all, so it can be unforgiving if its cut too close. 

@EpauletGot it, thanks!

My first linen items ever (a while back, and not from EP) definitely got too small over time when taking my usual size , and that was interesting

My linen shirts from another brand are almost a full size up, but I'm in between sizes for them. For EP Individualized I'm almost a perfect XS. I'm still wondering if I should ask for an extra inch in body and chest just in case...

@cyclohexane linen is unpredictable that way, but the Italian goods that we use are pretty consistent. I wouldn't be nervous to make these in your typical size, but I also think that a linen shirt lends itself to a bit of a larger fit, so doing an inch up from XS wouldn't look bad even if it's a touch big IMO

Thanks @Epaulet

For the Southwick EFF, I consulted with @EP Sam, and did end up sizing up on a linen suit and jacket, but I don't have those on hand yet, and obviously it's not a shirt.

Well, I guess I don't have to decide right away. The solution might be to get one of each... One in normal size, and one with an extra inch in the body. biggrin.gif

Sweet.  Sounds like a 2 pair pre-order if you ask me.  

 

 

Is the combat boot on the same last as the Chelsea?  I WANT!  

 

Any chance we can keep the pre-order open long enough, or can we delay submitting our sizing, until we confirm the Chelseas fit?   But commit to the material?  I know it will be a pain in the ass, but thought it was worth asking.

I'm currently in no hurry to get my EFF stuff. My daughter brought home lice from that tenement we call a school so everything has been removed from our already overflowing closets to get cleaned or bagged for a few weeks. What a mess!

@Epaulet

 

 

Are these coming back in the near future?

@Epaulet - Wasn't there talk of you putting up some sort of crosswalk to compare the sizing of the Individualized shirts to some other popular brands out there or am i just imagining that?

What's the practical difference here?

What's the effect on a buttondown collar with the top button open? I find that some shirts will buckle oddly where the collar meets the chest. Would this help with that?

Hilariously my band collar shirt does this the worst.

It's largely personal preference.

But it might help with this. Depends a little on the material, but for something like oxford cloth that already has some heft to it, I find that the soft collar is a little lighter and more flexible and so sits up better.

Of course, if you are wearing a tie, it's going to be a lot harder to get it to look crisp. But then you just have to roll with that or have some stiffer collars for ties.

Forgive the off-topic post, but I'll be staying in San Francisco March 17-20 and would appreciate any recommendations from the EP crew, particularly on drinking establishments and menswear stores :)

Unionmade, Self Edge, Alden

If you're the sort of person willing to go out of your way for coffee: Sightglass, Fourbarrel, Ritual

Tanner Goods has a nice store

 

Try to go to Wilson and Wilson if you're looking for a nice cocktail in a speakeasy location. Very intimate, have to make reservations in advance but delicious drinks that are a great deal. For beer, you can go to Haight St for a bunch of good options - Toronado, Black Sands, Magnolia to start.
