Is it recommend to size up in the wool Andover jackets? Normally a size XS but p2p seems so small...

Does anyone have any experience with any of this seasons Coleman or Railroad jackets?


Sorry i don't mean to ignore posts. My wardrobe is getting there finally. Quite an investment and as Abdul from Nepenthes once told me "Our clothes are meant to be a part of the wearer's lifetime" so i think i picked the right label to invest a wardrobe in. I just scored the denim apron too.

 

As for the Coleman Jkt I don't have any of this seasons reiterations but i have the Denim Coleman Jkt from last FW. Its fully lined this year from the look of it. Nice lining too i'd be inclined to wear it in reverse as well... This year's Reverse Sateen Olive Coleman jacket and the Navy Wool Denim Railroad look amazing!

I've been in your spot before and I would suggest you consider the following:

- Is the fully lined or not, fully lined will be snugger
- Are you a taller or shorter xs, might need sleeve shortened on a small
- Do you plan on layering? gotta be like a true 34 chest to layer comfortably on an xs andover

I suggest going with your normal size, although the pit to pit is small – the armholes are quite low and large.

Depends on your shoulders and arms, it's tight for me in the upper arms

my chest size is 35.5", im 5'7" and 132lbs. The arms of the size Small seem pretty long though

Just an fyi all eg jackets have tiny p2p measurements, but for the most part they fit tts (yes it is misleading). Andovers have very slim long arms, but generally fit tts.

^bought a large Andover based on the P2P, trying to trade for a medium. Misleading indeed. But I did size up for the whipcord bedford

I usually take a large in a lot of outerwear and I could barely move my arms in a Large whipcord Bedford from one of the recent S/S collections. It was tight in the shoulders and chest, but pretty boxy in the rest of the body. I'd almost certainly need to go up to an XL for even the unlined stuff, which, as you've mentioned, isn't what you think if you were to glance at the measurements.

I dunno I'm a true large in all clothing and can easily fit into large in eg, including the whipcord blazer. It does fit smaller, but I think the expectation is that you don't layer as much with the early fall/spring stuff. I know that the duck cotton bedford and the engineer jackets require sizing up to an XL. Overall I think EG is one of the best brands for maintaining consistent sizing, which is probably why I've stuck with them so long.

In jackets maybe, but shirts I completely disagree. I have size M shirts from a few years back that fit larger in the chest/shoulders than size L in recent seasons. Huge difference and each season changes.

I'm an M in stuff like Gitman (and old EG) and wear an L in EG jackets. Even then bedfords and andovers are often snug.

As promised. Here are a couple pics of the charcoal glen plaid 3pc suit. This is my first Andover and it fits quite nicely and as you can see its right on the limit of a medium. The jacket looks designed to be unbuttoned, I can button it just fine though but i feels it's designed to be worn unbuttoned. Thus the vest can be seen. The other pic includes:

Essex pant: grey / charcoal stripe jersey
Western shirt: blue denim chambray
C1 vest: olive nyco ripstop
Shoulder hoody: grey wool herringbone
Apron: 9oz denim

Really love the apron and highly recommend it! Such a ballsy piece to wear but like all things - confidence I suppose smile.gif
