Wow, @ManofKent. One of my favorites from you, and I was about to say the only thing the olive bedford would not go with would be green pants, but you've proved that wrong.

 

Totally different climate out here in CA, wine tasting with the wife for our 5th anniversary:

Completely agree and had the same thought when I see this a few days ago in WAYWT. I still am amazed how little details bring it all together. The Needles scarf is ace here.

Would they work with EG winter fabrics or best left to the warmer months ?

Edit : mbaum + eluther are good at this nod[1].gif

 

Wow - just caught up on four weeks of posts in here. there are some really stellar fits. Everything from the traditional workwear to more "out there" stuff. So well done @ManofKent , @agvs , @ramdomthought, @CJAM and @Gerry Nelson.

 

@modual , I think others gave great advice. I like those pants and see no issues in combining seasons. In fact, MoK does that really well and so usually do the LA dudes, like @Cotton Dockers, as our climate allows for that.

 

In addition to what others said, I would look to SS14 for more inspiration. That was a super strong EG season with tons of gray pants. You will find those combined with a lot of blue jackets and a bit more colorful shirts. A direction I recommend. You can even be daring and combine those pants with highly patterned jackets (Black batik or Foulard print in blue comes to mind).

 

Or you can simply throw on a blue moleskin Bedford - and do it very conservatively with white shirt or crazy it up with colorful/ patterned shirt or even a shawl. 

 

I think those pants also work in a more casual setting with this season's leisure jackets. Perhaps the stand-out cable knit will work for an all-gray/ monochrome scheme. And you can roll them up with Vans and this summer season's navy linen explorer jacket and a simple tee ...

 

Tons of possibilities ... post 'em here.

Did you just buy those ghurka's off rakuten? Are they a size 36? If so, H8.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about from one of the Nepenthes IG accounts: https://instagram.com/p/8pdt03m6jM/

 

thanks for the feedback, eluther - the cinch pants are quite slim, indeed. going to play with this fit a bit; have a pair of navy B1Ps from last winter that are roomier in the thigh. also, I don't think the Bedford is that bulky on its own, just appears so here. because of the added bulk in the upper arm due to the sleeves of the smock and not buttoning the front, there's an impression of bulkiness. cheers

@blue peter been killing it! I really like the bedford/smock/tunic combo. Agree with eluther about the pants though.

I agree with the sentiments about that @ManofKent fit. Really expertly done. Wouldn't have ever guessed that the mismatched olive would work. Going to have to try something like that soon.

Yes and yes. Sorry.

 

If you hadn't mentioned how easy it was to buy off Rakuten this never would have happened...

Finding stuff big enough on Rakuten can be a challenge though smile.gif

Do Japanese sizes of EG differ from what's sold in the west?

post #2533 of 3593
No, but you tend to see a lot more XS on Rakuten and it can be a chore sorting through everything.
post #2534 of 3593

Yeah, finding a pair of 36's on Rakuten can be a real bear.

post #2535 of 3593
A lot of the listings don't have the size in the title, and there are very few XL pieces on Rakuten anyway (oh and watch out if you're buying brands that are unsized or Japanese sized - the listing title might say XL, but the measurements will often equate to what we would consider M to L). If you're a western Small to Medium it can be a goldmine, and you get pieces not widely available.
