The 19th BD tatersall shirt runs about a half size larger than normal, though I am keeping my normal size since it will shrink with some washing and I still like the fit. Finally, the classic shirt runs large by about half a size but that is probably by design so you can wear it over a regular shirt if you choose.

As a general rule, you need to get measurements for all EG clothing to be safe if you are buying online /sight unseen.

Yeah I'm interested in that black oxford workshirt from Odin but they only have L, not XL. E-mailed them for measurements: hope they reply.

I was thinking of doing the same exact makeup, but with dainite sole instead of the double-leather sole, but am open to opinions. Thanks!

Sorry I thought you were talking about the EG x Trickers brogues with the mismatched panels.. I've already got the EG x McNairy collab in brown

Re trickers, call nepenthes. They have 4-5 different colllab models, mismatched panels or mismatched shoes.

Loosely related to the topic at hand: do any Canadians have experience ordering EG from Context? I wonder how they are in terms of taxes/brokerage fees.

Anyone heard any rumors of an upcoming sample sale? They usually do one this time of year right?
post #1462 of 1715
I've never heard of this before. Is it one-offs at Nepenthes in NYC?

Yeah I think they did one this past spring sort of unannounced. Not sure if it was at the store or a separate location- but definitely in New York.

There was one very recently, and its friends, family VIP only. They specifically do not want it to end up on choosy beggar, forums, etc, and apparently they are really good at keeping it quiet.

Okay that makes a lot of sense. Preserves the brand integrity.

The sample sale was the 7th, 8th, and 9th of November. I wasn't able to make it but supposedly it was great.

Would be interested in the Trickers. Do keep me in the loop if it does pan out.

Can anyone comment on whether this season's Brookline jackets fit the same as previous seasons?

the goal is to mimic the grain mismatching that the sanders-made shoes had a couple seasons ago. i was told that trickers doesn't like to do asymmetrical MTO, so this may be dead here unless i hear back differently.

Alternatively, double the size of the order (as matching pairs) and then mix the pairs up afterwards. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
