Post Overalls Fall/Winter 2010 - Page 3
The store has a HUGE selection of Post O'Alls, seriously. I have never seen this stuff anywhere, not on blogs or carried by other western retailers. If you live in NY and you like this kind of stuff I highly recommend stopping by. Totally made me rethink how I perceive the brand... lots of prints and soft detailing, far from the strictly-workwear imaginary I previously associated the brand with. Sizing was weird and I had to leave behind some amazing popover shirts and many different print shorts. Still went home with a summer print vest that I'm already very fond of. Go if you can.
I really wanted to get to Extra last time I was in NY, but it just wasn't in the cards.
In general the tops are boxy and sleeves are short. Pants IME are straight but run generally true. There was a rumor that the sleeve lengths might be longer in FW10 or SS11 but I haven't had the chance to compare.
I wouldn't say thin guys can't wear it, but it's not a slim fit.
It's taken from the vintage cruiser jackets made by brands like Filson and Woolrich. They have multiple pockets with rounded off corners with the triangular shaped pocket flap which he uses on his "cruzer" pieces. Like "cruzer" he names other models like the "sweat bear" which are a reference to the vintage pieces they are inspired by. Sweet Bear being a combo of Sweet Orr and Black Bear chore jackets.

can those in the know , confirm the general size difference ..
i.e - the Engineer seems to me to be the tightest fit .. generally an xl is 24" pit-pit ..
then the melton wool cruzer is quoted to be 26" pit-pit ..
I struggle getting coats to fit , as for some bizarre reason xxl isn't made ..
anyone like to contribute their thoughts on the fit of certain pieces ..
