I'm not sure the name of the jacket, but I've posted photo below for others more knowledgeable to comment on.

Image from the small EG feature in Complex AUG/SEP 2012 issue.

Looks like the Rebuild jacket by Needles.

I actually asked about that jacket when that photo came out. Was told it was Nepenthes purple label.

Wish that melton bedford fit me, it seemed tighter/smaller than the XL whipcord frown.gif

Just got my first EG pieces after months of research, the whipcord Bedford from Context (which I was pleasantly surprised to find is much more olive than the khaki pictured on the site) and greay plaid wool Andover from Nepenthes. Sale prices were amazing and now I'm hooked!

 

For those who own wool Andovers, do you find that the flared fit smooths out a bit as the pocket bags soften? Currently it fits absolutely perfectly in every dimension save for a bit of hip flare which I attribute to the hunting influenced cut.

I believe that's a relatively recent introduction.

Anyone with the Bedford whipcord jacket, can you give feedback on how warm the jacket is? I live in SF, and its generally 50-60 year around. This jacket seems a bit thin. Thanks!

Besides buttons and the throat latch changing over the years, there haven't been many changes to the bedford over the years (not counting fit)

Those aren't darts however but a stich that holds a lining to the blazer at its stress points (all four pockets)

I'd say yes, the bottom pocket openings and flaps are pretty stiff initially and do soften a bit and smooth out with use.

But imho the body length of the jacket also contributes to the flared appearance, I've had several wool andovers since FW08 and the longer ones always appear less flared than the shorter ones with up to a 2" difference in length, I shit you not.

Has anybody here ever had any experience shortening the body length of a work shirt? If so, how'd it work out for you?

Just buy another brand if that's your goal. They are meant to be long in front and back.
