How do the vests (especially the cruzer fest) fit ? e.g., are they slim or full in the body, how do they compare to their shirts in the same size?

In my limited exposure to their shirts, they have seemed to be fairly relaxed fitting)? But the vests I see seem to measure a bit smaller in the chest. They are at the low end for what normally fits me so how "slim" the vests are in the body will impact whether they work for me or not.

I'm quite a big fan of Post Overalls , unsure why there isn't xxl in the run , some pieces fit well , Cruzer / Sweetbear / ok41 tend to be bigger fitting.

Not seen many previews of it on here , or much interest.

Thought it may as there seems to be a massive interest of EG on here.

I purchased a Post Overalls long sleeve shirt . . . the sleeve was comically short . . . all other measurements were fine . . . great quality and design, but I had to return because of the sleeve length.

Yeah, I love Post in theory, but they have really narrow shoulders and really sort sleeves.

The sleeves are meant to be short. Post O'alls designs are based off 1920s-1930s vintage work clothing where the sleeves were designed shorter to help prevent them from getting caught in machinery.

Given that I do not work with machinery -- and if I did, I would not wear a $250 shirt when doing so -- the shorter sleeve does not serve a purpose for me and, IMHO, is aesthetically unappealing (e.g., it appears that you bought the wrong size shirt, or it shrank too much).  I commend PO for remaining true to the original pieces they are paying homage to, but I personally prefer vintage based designs that are slightly modified to remove undesirable design elements.  For example, I love the denim and wash of many LVC jeans, but I hate that the side seam for the left leg curves around to the front of the jean, as opposed to running straight down the side of the jean, such that the side seam terminates almost dead center in front of the jean.  I recognize that LVC does this intentionally in order to remain true to the shrinkage patterns that historically occurred with Levis jeans, but the result is, IMHO, aesthetically unappealing.  In short, I love vintage based designs and my wardrobe includes many such pieces, but I am not a purist; to the contrary, I frequently require mild tweaking for aesthetic purposes, notwithstanding the subtle deviation from the original.

I just wanted to mention why the sleeves were short in case you weren't aware.

I understand your point and I think it's just a matter of identifying what brands are trying to produce true reproductions (like Post O'alls) vs. brands that are workwear/vintage inspired with more current touches (maybe like Engineered Garments). I respect both approaches, but I would agree that I would tend to prefer the latter.

This is the post o'alls aesthetic. Just buy something else -- there are plenty of brands that do vintage inspired looks with more modern cuts.
