My guess is with the Wool Duffle Coats.

I believe any garment that uses 32oz Melton wool. That's by far EGs heaviest weight of fabric this winter. So basically the over parkas, pea jackets, one of the bedfords, and the duffle coats (maybe). I had a chat with the Nepenthes guys about matt pants vs fatigues vs USN pants. fatigues will always be wider. mainline is leaner than the Workaday.

The USN and matt are a similar width except the matt darts down towards the ankles where the USN is a straight and regular recut from Fw12. So I'm giving the Matt pants a try.

My point is they're not as skinny as you may fear. The drawstrings on the ankles may have also been used giving that 'skinny' look. Also bear in mind 6'5 may not be our average height.

Yea lets hope he doesnt slim everything down. I like how the workshirts fit just maybe the sleeve a bit longer because some shrink and dont stretch back

Did you see any of those heavy coats or the heavy wool Bedford at Nepenthes? I'm gonna try to make it over there this week to try stuff on.

Just got my navy heathered cotton workshirt from Drinkwaters color is exactly like the old vintage grey chambray except its not chambray and heavy.

Now the fit it fits like my other 3 blue chambray workshirts after they shrunk. I seriously hope these have no shrink in them because if these sleeves shrink it'll be t rex arms like my vintage grey chambray. Now I'm worrying if I should return it or keep it. I seriously loved the vintage grey chambray but the two shirts I bought different times both shrank to t rex arms.

For reference I wash all my clothes by hand or on cold always hang to dry. Also Gary thanks for shipping asap will let you know what is going on in e-mail. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

^ did you iron out those sleeves yet ? It would be interesting to know the before and after measurement. Also, that fabric is very elastic and I would give it a little stretch as well.

Gary, will you be carrying the wool herringbone Bedford? If so, any idea when you expect it in?

Long shot I know but...Anyone interested in swapping their FW13 mainline fatigues in a 30, possibly 32, for a pair of SS13 mainline fatigues in size S, worn once and in absolutely brand new condition?
post #386 of 1716
Gary still trying to decide ive only tried it on at home i will measure it when i get home. Guess i will keep it and pray it doesnt shrink.

Sleeve on my blue chambrays its borderline t rex i cant wear the sleeves buttoned you see 2" of my wrists always unbuttoned its perfect for me working on machinery though.

Don't remember seeing the light grey one before...

 

Also nice to see Needles as usual are doing shirting in many flavours of batshit crazy:
