Fit on the bedfords would probably have the loosest arms of all the blazers put out by EG. You probably just aren't used to them fitting loose, but I'm sure it looks fine on. For the guy asking about the fit of the bedford vs the truman, the truman fits bigger all around, usually meant to be layered due to the fit. Sizing down is possible on the truman if you don't want to layer.

You are correct. More beautiful in person and a bit darker. Stock photos capture the color well but detail of the fabric and sheen has to be seen in person.

This was my first EG purchase. Took a size small and for this jacket, fits like standard 38/medium. I also orders the tropical wool Andover in medium that was subtle in fit, slight roomier in the arms width wise but the body is noticeable more fitted. Especially so when buttoned up. Unfortunately u had to return as I found out the next day the outer left arm had a quarter size dark stain. Smelled like fragrance of sorts, sweet aroma. And to be quite frank, I did not like the color that much though I would have kept sans stain mark. I think I may like F/W season type jackets more due to the fabric choice and natural details that follow.

What type of jacket is the Driver? I think it works wonderfully aesthetically and function for S/S season.

Thanks for the comments. Tbh that fit was not even my ideal outfit i had planned on wearing the jacket with. Next outfit may look even farther away from EG theme. redface.gif

Lol! Did someone pay you to dress up like that?

I actually think the driver jacket is one of the poorest outerwear peices I've seen from eg. short, boxy, no real reason for 3 of the pockets on it, and very expensive too.

Have you handled it or just looked at pics on the internet? Driver's Jacket is fucking great in real life, and GT's first simple fit looks good. If all the people in this thread tried to dress like japanese lookbook models wearing EG they would look fucking ridiculous.

I think people should wear EG however the hell they want. It's not like the styleforum police are going to stop you on the street and give you a ticket.

I didn't like the driver jacket either when I tried on the grey version.. Was a bit Eastern European football hooligan for my tastes.

However looks ok in the pic above.

Got my Bedford today in navy.. Arms are a bit loose but a great piece in the cotton pique.. Will post some fit pics soon

The Driver jacket is an excellent piece IMO. Under rated and classic. It is a Spring adaptation of the Deck Jacket from FW12. There was a Navy Twill version [however rare as anything to find] which i personally liked. The irridescent version shown in the pics is quite nice too. To Alex99's point -- I remember speaking to the Nepenthes guys about 'style' and there were 2 words that should forever ring in your brain "No rules". Just have fun with what you wear i say. Wear it with pride.
