Be careful of the measurement posted on some web shop.... I bought a Shooting jacket last week... pit to pit was stated 22 inch.

When the jacket is arrived I check that was 24 inch.cloud.gif


Also it's important to know how do you like to wear EG... as I I have seen in Europe the fit showed by shops are tight, skinny and for thin guy.

In USA I see that is most easy and relaxed fit (wich for me is the correct philosophy of the product)...


So it is not easy to understand how an item wear... I really have problem to buy EG on line baldy[1].gif

Oh, thanks for the info. I'll have to try phoning them up or something.

 

I like my things to be fitted, but not too tight. I'm much bigger in the chest and shoulders than I am in the legs. Generally Mediums work for me, but I recently tried J. Crews standard fitting (not slim fit) T shirt and it was a bit too snug in a Medium for my liking. I'm busting my butt with the workouts of late as I'd got a bit lazy, but I never seem to get much small in the chest/shoulder area. Anyway, EG's stuff online tend to look a bit too baggy for my taste. Still this one doesn't. The photos here for example don't look too baggy but rather simply "tailored" or true to size:

Now on that model it looks just right, but he's a bit smaller in the chest and shoulders than I am. Anyway, I know how I want it to fit (though I struggle with vests), but I just wonder how it will fit me.

 

Anyway, I'm totally fine shopping online.  I'd never be able to get a lot of items otherwise because here in Milwaukee we just don't get a great selection.  Of course you also find great deals online (just got that cool Woolrich John Rich & Bros Chambray parka for a great deal), but with EG I doubt that will happen.

Thanks for the tip.  That's what I'm thinking, but a Large is never just right for me.  Can you tell I'm picky?  colgate.gif  At that price though I have to be.

OK, so I forgot to mention something else if you're like me and you're unsure of sizing.  Lauren from Arrow and Arrows got back to me today.  Have to say, I emailed them late last night and I got a reply this morning.  So she definitely gets back to you.  Anyway, their model is wearing a size small.  He's 6'0" and 150lbs, so he's more slender than I am.  Still looking at it on him I'm leaning towards Medium.

This might give you an idea of EG sizing. I'm 5'9 and 137 pounds or so. I'm in between a size S and M. I have some stuff in S and some in M. I think if you was to go for a M it would be to tight for you as the M stuff on me fits pretty good, but each piece is always different usually.

Anyone know where I can find a Sunforger vest online for cheaper than P&B?

I wear a 30/31 waist normally, and a Small in the fatigue shorts is quite loose on me un-cinched. With the cinches done up, the waist shrinks about 1/2" and fits me perfectly.

Im probably a 27? do you think the xs will fit me fine...?

Can the waist be altered...worried that eg have so many stitching and so... quite hard for my tailor

Some good prices on Steven Alan for EG. Andover polka dot is like 199. Haven't bought an EG item in years, can't wait for this piece.

I was randomly awake when I got the sample sale email this morning. Took it as a sign from the gods and auto-kopped that.

Hi! How does the fatigue pants fit? I have Sugar Cane 1947's in 34, same with Levis 501XX, if you are familiar with those pants. Should I go for a 34 here as well? Also I can mention I had the workaday cords in 34 but they were slightly too tight (I know the fit on those is a bit crazy).

oxford fatigues aren't as tight as the cords, i'd say you could go for a 34.

you should be good with the 34. you can tighten the waist with the buttons if necessary. i wear a 36 waist, and wear a l in the fatigues .
