Very nice! What season is that poncho from? I've somehow missed them completely I think, have they been around for long?

Cheers lads, my poncho is from SS12 -- but now EG's released a short-cut version this season. FWK has the full-length version this time. Also Shingles the poncho has been around for quite some time :) It was more of a winter piece but started to appear only recently for SS. I think Oi Polloi are carrying the short cut poncho -- in iridescent olive PC gaberdine.

^ Knight, how should one size the poncho? Size up or stick to the usual size?

I'd stick to your normal size mate. The ponchos this season look more sleeker than the one i have.

How would you size the spring Andavor is it different than the fall ones? Trying to figure out if a medium or large would fit me, I'm usually 40-42.

Large, maybe even xl considering your physique and style, andover is the slimmest cut of eg jacket, the p2p on a ss L is gonna be between 20 and 20.5 inches

You're right, Daiki released one for WWM too, that blue and black one with a hood, I think it was in 2010. If it first appeared as ss in ss12 that would explain why I missed it, didn't buy anything from that season nor had a look at it until the sales. Yup, that's correct...

S4D16139 / Olive Iridescent PC Garbardine (Above)
S4D1692 / Blue / White PC Floral Jacquard
S4D1653 / Pink / Natural Cotton Jacquard

I'd like to think that the coated canvases and pc gabardine are water repellent/proof, but is the jacquard?

Cheers Dino smile.gif if you have any other Qs feel free to pm.

Shingles I may be wrong when I say this but both types have their own functional strengths -- the iridescent one appears quite technical, everyday and will keep you dry from the odd shower. Where as the cotton jacquard will keep you warmer during an icy, windy chill and fits in line moreso with the 1968 theme.

If you're after something to keep you dry I'd go for the iridescent ponchos. Enjoy mate.

Does anyone here ever wear 19th Century BDs without a jacket?

Just got my first summer weight and the back of it is enormous and looks like a dress. Curious if I should just have it tailored, or if I'm completely missing the point of how it ought to fit.

i have. it just fits that way.  if you're going for the slim fit look that's not EG.

19th c BD is definitely the most exaggerated example of the EG shirt cut. Embrace it or find another style that suits your tastes more smile.gif The round collar and tab collar shirts have the most traditional 'slim' fit if that's more your style

Definitely not into the "slim fit," but the box pleat in the back coupled with the ample material is just a ton of material in the back. Coupled with the extended tail, it's drastic. Totally understand/agree that it's the most exaggerated of the EG cuts.

@TWorkSheets - Thanks for the suggestion for rounded/tab collars. I literally didn't piece together that my tab collar shirts fit differently than this.

Post a fit pic? EG is relaxed but shouldn't be oversized
post #870 of 1254

It can be slim too, depending on the size that fit your body shape. I'm a XS in most EG & they are all pretty slim fitting to me.
