Here are a couple. I like how the button shawl looks styled, but I have never owned one because it doesn't seem that practical.

here's another shawl mode: an alternate scarf style. I've posted a couple of other modes over the past few weeks. I disagree that the shawl is impractical - I'd say it's one of the most versatile pieces in my collection considering it can be worn several different ways as a scarf, can be worn as a dress-type thing :-), can be worn various ways as a shawl (of course). It can be styled up or styled down in many, many ways!

So jealous of your homespun bedford @ramdomthought.


I'll echo the sentiment that the shawls are awesome and very versatile. I probably wear mine as a scarf 85% of the time but it's my favorite scarf and when the weather gets cold I wear it practically everyday. I'm planning on picking up another just so I have some variety (and I can alternate if one get wet or needs a wash)

Coincidentally this is my first day of the season wearing my shawl. It's so versatile and I really do think it's a very safe buy for guys on the fence about it since it can just default to a scarf. Like @Ken P and @blue peter I wear mine as a scarf under a jacket dangling low almost every time I wear it, but here and there I bust out the skirt or poncho. I'll see if I can take a pic later.

For those that are interested: take the shawl unbuttoned and put it over your shoulders with the buttons facing your body. Toss the buttoned side over your shoulder. Pull the buttonhole side toward the middle of your body and flip it around so the button holes face the side you threw over your shoulder. You can then take on of the buttons on and slip it through one of the buttonholes (sort of near your armpit/collarbone). This probably sounds complicated but it's actually pretty natural. I'll post a fit picture eventually.

Nice fit. Tendeloin always seems under-represented on SF compared with other Japanese brands, and I've not worked out why.

Looks good - yes I find the shawls pretty versatile when it gets cooler (I've picked up three now...)

Here's mine today. It's just a big rectangle with buttons/buttonholes, so there's plenty of scarf there. I usually just toss it on like this, though I do tie it up when it's colder out. I think it's been said before, but the Button Shawl is one of my favorite things to fly with. Scarf, blanket, small pillow, etc. all in one!

Thanks everyone for the ideas I love the cardigan idea and tried it today

I think with some adjustments and straightening this will look really good!

Thanks. Tenderloin is not particularly easy to get ahold of, there's currently almost no stockists outside of Japan (I know of I think one, in Australia) when a few years ago there were at least 4 or 5 in the UK alone. And even if you can find it online in Japan, the webstores don't show product shots for some reason. They're ultra low-key in their marketing, it's a very underground brand that you have work to get which is why I think it's less common in the west. It's also not cheap but it's really solid and fits me well so I think it's definitely worth it if you can find what you're after.

Nice! did you size down on the CPO? Or are you just really tall? Feel like the CPOs are pretty long.

I'm a TTS medium in everything I own and went with that. I'm around 6'0, maybe just slightly under 6'1. The CPOs are cut pretty short in the body compared to regular EG tops, which I think is for the layering aspect that you see in my picture. 

 

Generally, alpha sizing for the various EG CPOs/overshirts is consistent, but the actual fits can vary. For example, I also own a FW09 CPO in M and it is cut ridiculously short in the body; still TTS, but very slim and unforgiving. Same with the SS13 Douglas Shirt.
