I too ordered the Andover jacket from J+O on sale, only CAD $100 delivery from Canada to Australia! And that's not even express delivery... baldy[1].gif

Don't worry about it. It's an awesome piece. $100 delivery is mind-boggling.

Shit, wish you would have asked on the forums (sorry if you did)

HW Carter and Sons has both the grey and khaki dayton shirt for 25% off...

Anyone can PM me for stock list. Most EG is 25% off with good size runs

my experience with J+O has been garbage. didn't even realize they mailed outside of canada. last f/w i called them up and tried to order a workshirt - lady helping me on the phone didn't even know what engineered garments was and then proceeded to tell me that they won't ship outside of canada.... facepalm.gif

nepenthes nyc has 30% off a decent amount of stuff, not sure if this would apply to email/phone purchases. got a floral shirt and a few pocket squares last week.

just ordered a herringbone bedford from triads, i'd been looking for one for ages. this will be the 4th EG jacket i've attempted, really hoping the medium runs smaller than the baker and fits a 38"/39" chest.

You should be good. I am 39"/40" and this season's medium Bedford fits me although on the slightly tight side.

If it's a winter only suit then I'll pass and wait for the ss navy broken twill which looks pretty interesting,, what weather are you in?

I've been eying this from awhile back when tw posted a fit pic and what's not to love about it? its a freaking comfy great fitting staple navy suit but I think he's in toronto so he'll get to milk the hell out of it,,,, living in socal, and depending on weather cycles and fucking el nino, sosa and other related shit, I only get to use most fw items 1-2 months in the year.

Socal here. I bought two wool bedfords last winter... sold both without ever wearing them.

I hear you man....
I've sold several eg/wwm wool items since moving down here but mostly melton, flannel, worsted and some tweed,,, I did keep a wool twill blend suit which I wear around half of the year.
But I've never had wool serge and it doesn't look too thick in pics so was just really wondering where it sits among other types of wool in the warmth scale?

^ I tried on a few Wool Serge pieces from EG and they're not thick at all. Definitely an all-year fabric.

^ I like your style, Fycus. Very much in line with EG mantra of comfy wearz. nh

Thanks- it actually took me a few years to develop an identity with my clothing and I feel I have a better idea of what works and what doesn't on me. I went through periods of wearing dior jeans and slim jackets and just found that something was off. After getting introduced to EG, I found that I could wear clothing that was well made and "fashionable" (shudders) but not skintight, and It kinda branched from there. I don't really do "americana" either, so EG fills that niche quite nicely.

canstyleace- I'm in Lisbon, which is perfect weather for the serge wool and I'll be able to wear it most of the year here. It's not too thick and you can definitely wear it in cool spring and fall weather.
