More of a cross-post from the EG FW '13 thread (though it was really a FW11 item), but here's a fit pic of the black boucle shawl knit jacket from FW11 that I luckily snagged for a good price on ebay recently:

Happy I found this thread! Cotton Piquet Bedford, with rolled up sleeves to fight the heat. Last year I decided to go for it without trying them on, and bought my first EG item. I'm very happy and enjoyed the fit in general even though I don't seem to have the right build.

Anyone know if there's an even lighter jacket in this year's summer collection? Like 31 Celsius light.

good looking jacket but it looks a size small from her...
post #875 of 1242
Would you say it's the chest? It's a very wrinkly fabric and the sleeves are rolled up. It's a size L. There's room in the shoulder (armholes a little low) and center area (fist and a half) and I had to shorten the arms and take the lower back in a little blecaute it flared out behind me. I was going to get the lightweight Andover now but it seems very slim!

It's more on the length, the shoulder and chest all seems fine. Notice from the pics how the sleeves are at least 2 inches from your wrist, and how the bottom of the jacket compared to where your thumb is. You seem like a pretty broad/muscular guy, which is a good thing, but just not the build that EG is made for. I workout alot too, and I kinda have the same problem, shoulder is always tight, but everywhere else is too big. I don't have extra long arms, so most of my problems can be managed by a trip to my local tailor.

Thank you. I think it's a great jacket. What other color pants would you wear it with?

It's weird. To get the "right" lenght I would have to be almost 10 cm short but just as "wide". The shoulders are actually big, I pull them up a little (and the sleeves are rolled up in the picture). I'll post a picture of a heavier Bedford later. One I haven't taken it to a tailor yet because winter never arrives. Please let me know what you think.

I like that something is off though. It's also fun because no one wears anything like it where I live. People are always intrigued and compliment how casual it looks, even though it's such a basic blazer. The buttons with the metal rings never fail to amaze. Imagine if I had a tunic.

everyone in this thread except prurient should size one up.
post #879 of 1242

I just started looking for a new spring fall jacket and haven't tried on any EG yet but from what i have read these are trim or more of a fitted cut.  I wear a 42 Barbour bedale jacket and had to go to a XL in the Ursala to fit in shoulders.   I'll need to get the sleeves hemmed.    I tried the L in  Apolis USMC wax jacket.  The length, sleeve etc all fit well but the shouders are tight when lifting my arms but everywhere else fits fine. Does sizing up 1 usually work in EG?  I haven't been able to try an XL in Apolis or any EG yet.  Arpenteur Mayenne jacket looked like a nice compromise for a chore jacket with a generous cut.   Any experiences in comparing EG and Arpenteur?   I like the EG choices and hope to be able to try a L and XL on. 

 

Any thoughts experiences welcome

 

thanks for the time

Corduroy bucket
FW 13 chambray workshirt
Pin dot 19th C. Button down
FW13 Navy Wool Serge Irving Pants

The bucket and 19th C. Shirt were bought off SF classifieds. Not sure what season either were from.

I love the chambray, have it myself, but I'm not sure I'm feeling it as an overshirt. 19th century button down is especially dope, how did you size?

post #882 of 1242
Both are small but this season's work shirts ran huge apparently so I've been using it more as an overshirt. It's nearly a full size larger than my other workshirts.
post #883 of 1242

Cool. I have it in xs, and agree it fits like a regular small. 

post #884 of 1242
So good seeing people post style pics and fit pics. @soqueriaterum I think your Bedford fits well if that's your true to size and if the sleeves are rolled up then you're good to go!

Here's a pic I've had taken recently:
Ghurka short turquoise bird tree print
Work shirt indigo denim shirting
Neck tie blue white red black oxford stripe
Bedford jacket khaki cotton piqué (SS13)
Pocket square by The Hillside
Belt by Anderson's

I think the jacket fits you well except the suppression on the waist which might be from your alteration but I would stay with that size. The Madras fabrics which are available in most of the jackets are a nice light weight fabric.
