Engineered Garments FW 2012 - Page 80

post #1186 of 1411
HW Carter & Sons is at 40% off with a lot of great pieces and sizes left over. We opened late in the season so our loss is everyone here's gain.

Feel free to PM for a stock list.

Got the small navy whipcord bedford, fit is not so good on me so I'll have to sell. Do all EG jackets fit very boxy or are the other jackets cut differently (Andover, Truman)? What size fits a typical 36?
post #1188 of 1411
A typical 36 is a small in EG. If you do not like the fit, look elsewhere for blazers. EG is known to be fitted in the shoulders/upperbody but roomy in the midsection. It is their signature fit. If it's not what you are looking for, you can try the andover, but the truman will fit the same as the bedford if not bigger. Andovers are slimmer in the arms and body, but tend to run a little longer. All EG's fall stuff fits bigger than s/s stuff because it's meant to be layered. Try getting something from a spring season and you might prefer the fit.

Anyone interested in the Homespun Jersey Bedford, size Medium? BNWT and will move on for the Sale price I paid. PM if interested.

skitlets,

bedford is traditionally a shorter boxier fit, certainly not for everyone. the other blazers have different fits, the andover being a bit longer and more blazer like. (and slimmer as well)

same as what fycus says.

Agreed you should try the Andover, the Irving is not bad either,,, and if you're a shorter-slimmer 36, try the xs too.
post #1192 of 1411
skitlets, what don't you like about the bedford?i wasn't sure about the fit of mine at first, on me at least the short boxy cut works better with fuller pants. not necessarily a bad thing as i'm getting tired of skinny fits.

Knowing nothing about the eg, I got a bedford from styleforum my first week here, about two years ago...
I practically lived in the thing for over a year and it's still like new.
It turned out to be quite the gateway drug...

black ripstop with the throat tab sized medium with an 18" pit to pit...
eg is a cruel mistress.

what about the landsdown jacket? fits TTS? I'm looking for the brown corduroy one from this winter season in size small or XS

What was the final verdict on the fit of this season's Baker? I have a Small on the way & hope I'm not disappointed.

I was also doubtful towards my Bedford when I first got it. It was my first sportcoat of this style. The garment was stiff and the back felt like a tent at first, but it softened and I got to love it. Pretty much wore it every day last S/S. Since then I've had another Bedford and the Truman. I'd say the Truman is a similar fit, a little longer in the body.

This year I'm planning on getting my first Andover and probably some of the other similar jackets aswell.

How are the fit on the Baker and Landsdown compared to the Bedfords or Trumans?

Loving my Olive parka. So glad I went for it instead of the navy

 

Its nice and warm aswell. Also managed to pick up a white textured Gitman Bros shirt in the Bureau sale that goes well with it :)

The Baker is more a trad jacket both in length and width compared to the Bedford. The Landsdown, at least from F/W 2011, was a fuller cut. I needed to size down from my traditional size L to M to get a cleaner, slimmer shape. I love all three; Bedford, Baker and Landsdown. I haven't picked up an Andover, but would love to get one and pair it with a pair of cinchback pants-maybe next winter season.

Thanks for the input guys. Not opposed to a fuller cut but the Bedford doesn't work for me, just too much material at the waist. If anyone is interested in a small navy whipcord, I'll let it go at the same sale price I got it for.

I'll have to try on some other jackets to see if the cuts work a bit better. I'm a skinny 36 but the bedford is snug at the shoulder/chest and I probably won't be able to size down.

After reading your posts, I'd suggest seeing if you can grab an Andover on sale somewhere (to at least try it out for size/fit). It's my personal favorite cut and for my money, I think it's a significantly slimmer in the body than any of the others I've tried on.
