I already have one, so unless they messed with the sizing the L should be ok.

I'm not after "heritage," more like layered grunge. I think EG is worth a shot, at least. 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.

Speaking of,

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.

did you get the L? that piece is definitely stretchier so it might work.
post #34354 of 45005
I did! Last one. The price made it seem worth the risk. What the hell, eh?

Damn it I was eyeing that tan knit. Let me know if it doesn't work out. What are the last 2?

At this rate, KJ won't need to return anything even if none of the stuff works for him. (I already PM'ed about the black top, which was in my Dream Box).

No-name brands, but they have a good neckline and (hopefully) decent materials and were about $30 so I thought it was worth a shot.  I was actually just trying to get free shipping for the CKC shirt and got a bit carried away... 

 

I usually really like thinner rayon (often in the form of tencel/modal/viscose) shirts, they have a grungy vibe, feel excellent on your skin, and tend to layer really well.  Last one is cheap monday and the black one is Gazzarrini (?)

gazzarini quality is pretty awesome for its price

i actually have a collarless white button down with a wrinkle texture. too slim for me, will get around to posting it here some day.

You would actually save a lot more time just making the effort to return it, and probably more money too, don't see why you wouldn't.

Is there like an epic wait associated with AE Strands?
