Will Tropical Wool shrink or fade when dry cleaned?

Not in my experience ^.

First experience ordering from TBB to USA. Package arrived in 3 business days (2 in transit, 1 to process). Couldn't be happier. Picked up navy Loiter and navy twill Bedford both on sale (thanks again @Biggskip). Not sure I'll keep both as they are so similar and I already have a navy wool bedford. Loving the Loiter jacket so far. It just may be the perfect casual travel jacket for me.

Did you get hit with any customs fees?

Negative. I assume due to Made in USA goods. Fedex was the shipper.

Correctamundo! I've ordered EG from the UK three times and never been hit with customs (which of course you should never).

Hopefully, you avoid this but Fedex has sent me customs bills weeks after delivery.

Allowance is up to $800 now isn't it to US so you should be ok.

Also, can I ask how the fit of that Loiter is? Looks quite big/boxy from measurements but sizing down might have sleeve length issues.

Loiter size seems on par with the other style of jackets.

 

Im a small in the Andover and Loiter if that helps.

I took the same size as my other EG jackets, XL. It's a bit boxier and bigger in the chest by a good inch than the Bedford.

I actually sized down on loiter. Fits pretty well but could have also gone with my normal size for a slightly baggier look.

The above comments are accurate. Bigger in chest for sure vs bedford etc

I think the Loiter looks best when treated more like an overshirt than a blazer.

 

My Navy Geo Jacquard Loiter is probably my favorite EG piece to date. I went with my normal size, and while it measures larger than other jackets, it doesn't appear oversized—it has a nice casual vibe.

I think the Navy Geo Loiter is a solid piece, great for casual wear. I don't own it, but it sounds like those who have purchased really like it, not surprisingly. I don't own it, but I get the sense it is sized like the SS15 knit wave jacket which I personally do own and really like. I own the SS15 version in a small and it's certainly oversized, but I like it that way and couldn't picture sizing down as I like it slightly oversized with the sleeves rolled back.

Very well said. The Loiter is a much lighter weight garment than the Bedford. I knew it wasn't lined like many of their jackets but wasn't expecting something so light. As @tobiasfunke indicated, it's more akin to a shirt weight than jacket weight. Still love it!

I bought a loiter jacket. It's the same cut as R&T PJ jacket from last season.
