Engineered Garments Spring/Summer 2013, plus FWK - Page 60

post #886 of 1126

Got my Ecru Truman in size L today.  This is my first EG piece and the quality is really nice and I love the color as well.  What do you guys think of the fit?

Nice, great looking jacket. Fit looks right on in the shoulders and body, sleeves may be a little long but hard to tell for sure. Definitely the right size I'd say, may just want to shorten those sleeves a little....or not.

Yeah the sleeves definitely need to be shortened a bit:

Yeah, absolutely. Other than that though, I think the fit is great. Nice pickup.

Drivers Jacket

First 2 photos are in a different exposure than the last







This maybe the best buy for this season or any S/S nod[1].gif

^ Is that the khaki iridescent twill material?


And is it me or does that truman look a bit wide in the shoulders? the body length and chest look good though, shortening the sleeves will help tons on the overall look, great jacket!


So how come nobody posted their sample sale pickups? makes me think it was either amazing or just meah... havent seen much on b&s either, what gives?

not doing it justice imho, i think maybe you could size up toasty or the bottom half is too clean and pressed to go with it. aphelan you might be able to size down, but if it says you can on the label- machine wash that truman

I agree with Fycus, toasty the shoulders seam appears to be a little too far in. Body fits fine though. Sizing up will make it a little looser. Is it easy to zip as-is?

Aphelion, if you don't plan on layering you may want to size down. Can't tell from the pics whether the shoulder seam is on point. Also, instead is shortening the sleeves consider just rolling them. The jacket's about being casual and rolling is definitely that.

after a pair of blue chambray fatigue shorts size medium, cant find any uk stockists. Anyone point me in the right direction?

looking at this picture looks like there's some room in the shoulders as there appears a bit of shoulder drop. I'd be very careful with alterations at the cuff just yet. i'd sooner get the shoulders taken in first as this would alter the cuff length a little.

Yes, iridescent twill material. Lovely in person, hard to capture in photo.

Jacket is actually really loose in person and I can zip up the body easily. Same to timpoblete's comment. It is a light jacket and I would ideally only wear with a shirt or tee. Shoulder seems actually fall off my shoulder granted a shirt and tee may cause subtle differences in fit due to pulling of the layers. The arm length is perfect, though, in the photo it is shown unbuttoned hence it falls weird, fanning open. I would not recommend anyone sizing up. Jacket fits .5 size large to 1 size roomier depending on your body shape.

I agree with the pants though I am steadily outgrowing them. I would prefer some alternative looser fitting navy trousers without the break, worn particularly with this jacket. It is hard to find this color navy though as usually it ends up looking like 'midnight'. The pants are Patrik Ervell summer jeans FWIW, past season, light and breathable for S/S weather. I intentionally had these cropped.

edit: FWIW, Bureau's measurements:

Size S 21 17.5 25 26
Chest / shoulder / sleeve / body length

These are the ideal measurements in general for me. 1 size up would be too loose and long, otherwise, EG not for my body type? shog[1].gif
post #897 of 1126
EG works for every body type in my opinion, it is a matter of styling it accordingly. I think it looks fine but it doesnt have that EG look to it, which is likely why its throwing me off. Keep trying and im sure you will find a good balance. I have a feeling it'll look good with some shorts as well, and considering how hot its been here in SF that will be no problem.

Hey toasty, what color tone is the sheen on that iridescent twill? (looks kinda greenish aqua in some pics but not sure) and personally, I would not size up on that fit, looks spot on to me.
post #899 of 1126
question on bedfords. are the sleeves tend to be more looser then other models? the shoulders and chest on mine are good but the sleeves are quite loose. atleast from what I'm accustomed to. maybe I just have small arms shog[1].gif

How is the fit on the Bedford compared to the Truman? I'm getting a Bedford next and am curious if the chest is tighter or looser.
