I've seen the Post O'alls shorts at Inventory, Hickorees, and OiPolloi. Ordered a pair of the indigo denim shorts at OiPolloi

i wouldn't mind seeing a fit pic posted if you have a chance.

seems like they didn't carry much stock online from the fw12, as i only remember seeing the eg x golden bear varsity.

Any specifics? I have a slim build, 5'10 / 145 with broad shoulders (Normally look for shoulder length at 17.5" on shirts). For me with the Andover, size Small, my shoulders make it a little tight. The arm pits aren't as high as some of the other jackets though so that makes up for it. The lining and the material is silk (figuratively). Really well made jacket that will last forever and a color that matches about everything. My favorite part is honestly how the bottom is squared off, really can be worn with anything.

Thanks for the info! I've heard the tropical wool described as being EG's closest material to a traditional suit fabric, which is definitely intriguing. What's the weight like? Is it something that could be potentially worn for three seasons or is it more on the lighter side?

Interesting that we look for the same shoulder measurements but I am sure a medium would suit me better. I am 5'10 and about 155 +/- nowadays. Thanks for the feedback!

Hello. I had this picture taken some time last week but sadly had no time to upload to the forum. I got the Bedford jacket from Gary (my first one) and I must say I'm absolutely loving it. I asked a while back whether I should get this or the ecru Truman. I must admit I'm glad I chose this. Thanks to the guys on this forum for helping me decide... Cheers.

Yes absolutely similar if not better than traditional suit fabric because of the texture, I really think they got the fabric down in terms of comfort and the lining helps keep the shape well. The weight is really light, which is why I own most of their stuff (North Carolina climate) so I shoot for 4 seasons lately smile.gif however you're realistically going to need a top coat in the Winter and if you get the tropical wool pants the wind is likely going to cut through it.

No you are definitely right, I think a medium would be better in terms of overall comfort. Small on me looks like it's made to measure, everything is perfect as long as I stand perfectly still biggrin.gif Medium is more functional for our size/layering.

Well this is technically SS12 but I figured this thread doesn't discriminate EG, so...

What do you think of the fit of this Porter jacket? (nevermind the tee - washing day) Too slouchy? Looks good? Needs to be tailored in the back? Needs to be burned?


The camera angle is slightly better in the last two shots.

[edited out the pics, thanks for feedback guys!]

yikes dude, way too big on you and not in a good way :/ Also, the jacket itself looks kind of worn in, and once again not in a good way. Is this the one that was dirt cheap on B+S a couple weeks back?
post #865 of 1127

Nope, bought it a year ago. Been losing quite some weight since, although it's always been slouchy.

definitely looks too big. porter jackets are great and normally a little more slouchy, but it feels like you could've possibly gone a size down. i also feels these jackets generally look better with the collar worn up as opposed to down. and rolling up the sleeves entirely versus half way up / down. just my thoughts.

Agreed that the Porter Jacket looks too big/oversized. You know, I have a pair of the Porter Pants and shorts and it's ridiculous how oversized they are. I love me some loose fit, breezy EG fits, but these were outrageous. Reminds me that I need to list the shorts I picked up on B&S soon. The fabric is fantastic though.

hey guys -

figured i ask this thread: does anyone who own a size small blue chambray work shirt from this season find it too big? i basically have one (size small) from i believe the ss11 - which fits a little smaller. it's brand new w/ tags and i'm just looking to trade it for possibly a size medium (from previous seasons) or a size small (from ss13).

check out my listing below. hit me up!

That porter jacket looks okay to me, even if it is a size big (look at the shoulders). I guess it really depends on how you style it though.

Anyone know which color represented is the most accurate? Odin tropical wool Andover vs Nepthenes vs Mohawk vs The Bureau

Seems like Odin is the lightest and Bureau the darkest.
