synthese it seems you're moving towards a workwear aesthetic, which is good, but i don't think EG is the brand for you. EG is all about narrow shoulders/wide chest, and it doesn't seem you have narrow shoulders. you should check out some of the more british brands -- folk, garbstore, or some of the rarer japanese like ts(s)

If it doesn't work out, so be it. other brands on my shortlist are White Mountaineering and Nonnative, along with (possibly) some more geller - I have also always wanted a cabourn cameraman. I wouldn't call any of that workwear, though. I guess the thing is that I see the Folk/ Oliver Spencer/ Howlin' -type midmarket brands everywhere these days, and they just don't appeal to me in person.
I haven't ordered anything from Context since about 200...7, and the guys were just as nice and helpful as the last time. Fingers crossed, 50/50 it's too small.
