Slide, I am having the same debate with the Bedford. I visited Nepenthes on Monday and Drinkwater's on Tuesday. Though both shops/personnel were wonderful (Angelo is one cool dude, and now I know why Gary is held in such high regard on SF), I found the Cotton/Poly Bedford Gary stocks to win out over the wool version at Nepenthes. The Cotton/Poly fits slightly slimmer, but it may be less warm. Therein lies my problem: do I want the slim fit like you posted (and probably the way EG intended the jacket to be worn), or do I want to size up for layering? It was about 50 degrees this morning in Boston, and I am really starting to sweat the imminent cold. I am 6' 185 lbs., and I am leaning towards the medium Bedford. Layering is probably not an option if I go this route, however.
