Anyone looking for the grey wool herringbone jacket in medium, currently on sale at Steve Alan for $325.

I purchased this earlier this season and the fit is boxy around the mid section (typical of this design) and quite long in the sleeves (when compared with SS12 Baker jacket).

Great layering piece all around, and ideal for winter.

Seems like I remember reading that the Baker is more TTS this season. Is this true?

Not in my experience. Sleeves lengths are quite long at the very least.

See below posts from a few months ago.

Sleeves are very long on the Truman jacket aswell. Had to have mine shortened 1,5 inch by my tailor.

Yeah, I also found the baker to be a size large this season. I'm normally a medium across the board but I tried on the small vertical striped one and it fit just right.

Take it to a tailor and they can hook it up. I bought a medium a couple of weeks ago, and mine was fit just like yours.

Good info. Thanks. I've worn a Large in previous seasons.

John Squire from The Stone Roses in what looks very much like a...


...Railroader Jacket.


Is this an old type of jacket or is he wearing the very EG jacket? I don't know when the picture was taken :/.

So what's the consensus on that navy wool camo?
For such an interestingly looking fabric there hasnt been much talk about it here,,, I havent seen it in person myself but I'm sure many here have..
Mainly wondering if it can easily be mixed in with a regular wardrobe or is it just too flashy?

I think it's one of the more interesting fabrics EG has utilized (I believe Daiki got this specially made from WWM). The navy wool camo is much warmer than the melton wool outerwear pieces this season, imo.

 

As shown in the link above, the fabric is much more subdued irl. If I had the funds, I'd get it in the Bedford jacket style (I believe it was ~$700 for the Bedford). Great piece, but as you can probably guess, it's very expensive considering the customized fabric.


It should go without saying that the best pieces in this colorway are the Bedford and the above-shown Cruiser. I think it would've been very interesting in the Railroader Jacket style.
