@dixonmanor tell us more about this book sounds awesome

@Beedub how does the aviator fit? I've had an eye on one for a while. I'm a S in shirts, and typically a M in bedfords.

@shoreman1782 The bar I work at, Smuggler's Cove in SF, is a small but (almost overwhelmingly) comprehensive paean to rum in particular, with a heavy nod to Tiki bars past. The book is insane... It comes out June 7th, but my boss gave us all copies last week. I think there are about 100 recipes included, covering everything from early (think mid-1600's) rum punches, to regional and traditional drinks of the Caribbean, classic-era Tiki and Exoctic cocktails, and new stuff we've developed for the bar. It's also a deep dive into Tiki history, revival, how to build a home Tiki bar, etc. I think it clocks in at around 300 pages. It's pretty great, if'n yr into that sort of thing.

I went to Smuggler's Cove all the time when I lived in hayes valley from '11-'12. Glad you guys are still around and flourishing.

@Crowshit I sized up, I'm a size L in pretty much everything in EG but I found the L to be a bit small all over. It's one of the only EG items that I've sized up on.
post #3189 of 3591

^ Agreed, size up +1 on the Aviator. They fit shorter and tighter across the chest.

@JilSlander @Beedub thanks for the advice! I think a M is how i'll go.

Any issues with wear/fading for those who own EG NYCO ripstop clothes? I have an FW15 navy NYCO coat, and there's a bit of white spots/fading on the edges of the sleeves. Not sure if that's normal.

I think that's just how the fabric ages.  I have SS 14 olive ripstop fatigues that are fading towards a white at the edges and where there is a lot of friction.

I just purchased an EG flannel and it has loose threads at the gusset of the shirt. They seem intentional however, do people typically snip these off?

They're supposed to be there. Run off stitching. Some old timey detail or something. I leave mine but do what you please. I think most people leave them.

Leave them. They look pretty cool, imo.
