Oic. Thanks for the info. I'll try to fold & squeeze it inside the pocket smile.gif

What did you think of the Andover?

Hey Shingles, I saw the Andover at MAC in SF and liked it, although it's definitely cut a little bit differently than the winter version (but this is probably to be expected).

 

I'm typically a medium in most jackets and thought that this one felt a little bit tight up top - the arm holes were higher/more restrictive than I would have liked. This was also kind of strange because I thought the body of the jacket felt almost disproportionately loose in comparison. It's hard to describe but something felt a little bit off. Some of this might have had to do with the fabric. I saw tried it in cavalry twill, which is a lightweight yet robust material that doesn't seem to have a lot of give. This is a lot different from the wools/flannel that was used this winter, which allowed for a lot of mobility. 

 

Despite all this, it's still a cool jacket, and probably is still my favorite jacket in the lineup. That said, I didn't buy it on the spot but I'm going to go back for a second look. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions and I'll try to help.

 

By the way, has anyone seen an ecru truman (size medium) still in stock anywhere outside of japan? I'm afraid I might've missed the boat on this one and I'm starting to kick myself.

I too found it a bit tight in the pits. Truman in the same material (cavalry twill) was a touch more comfortable. Really liked the cut though, will be trying to pick one up in another material / season.

Liberty in London has the ecru Truman in Medium, although its not available through their website. You could try ringing/emailing. I'd offer to proxy but I don't know when I'll next be in London again. There might be some other forum members can help you out though.

Trunk have finally got round to putting their EG online this week. They still have a medium in the ecru Truman.

That was of great help, thank you.
I've got two Bedfords and two Truman's myself but have yet to try the Andover and Baker.

Great advice regarding the chest issue, I have a kind of V-shaped body with a 30" waist and 41" chest, wide shoulders so that is my biggest concern with EG clothing. Been curious to buy the Andover for quite a while but I think I will pass now cause I understand exactly what you mean as many of my jackets fits a bit restrictive around my upper back and chest area (especially noticeable when you cross your arms forward).
Did you try on the M? What's your chest measurement? As to length, arm length etc. i'm a typical M in their outerwear but with a immovable material like that I'm afraid it might be a concern :/.


I have the Ecru Truman in Medium myself (I ordered an L at first but it was too large). It's a nice jacket, M fits me very good.

Trunk Clothiers in London has it, don't sleep!

3-pieces isn't really my kind of style but for those that likes that, they can get both the Ecru Truman 3-piece and the Seersucker Andover 3-piece at Trunk.

Has anyone seen the corduroy bucket hats outside of Japan? Steven alan has the ones in ripstop but not corduroy.

Anyone got advice on how EG flannel shirting fits? I.e. if you're a large in Gitman Vintage you'd be a what in EG shirting?

I've compared measurements but there seem to be some comments floating around the EG fits a bit differently sometimes, so I don't want to make an expensive mistake (that's what buying shoes online is for).

I think Gitman and EG fitting lines up decently in the large size range. I'm a bit in between medium and large in both Gitman and EG. A large in Gitman will tend to be a little bigger than most EG larges I think, but not by much. I have a couple EG flannels in size large, great shirts.

I got the Andover in Navy, it was my first suiting jacket from EG. The Med was to tight on me in the chest and shoulders which is crazy as I'm only 5'9 140 pounds. I had to size up to a large which fits much better, its definitely a size smaller from your normal size I'd say.

Also I got a great pair of pants up for sale from last spring/summer if anyones interested!

Wow the serge wool andover from fall must fit a lot differently. I'm a little bigger than you and the M is too big for me. Will be flipping it I think.

Yes wow. That sounds like a whole size smaller than usual. I'm also 5'9, 161 pounds. What's your chest and shoulder measurements?
Can you specify what Andover you got and from what season? SS13 Dark Navy Cavalry Twill?

Thanks

One reason for that might be because of the material, like the year 1492 mentioned the wool jackets being softer and having greater mobility.
Actually, I too can confirm this when comparing my wool herringbone truman to my ecru truman or heavy whipcord bedford (which has hardly no mobility/stretch at all).

Yes the SS13 Dark Navy Cavalry Twill. My chest is 39-40 and shoulders 17.5-18.
