Drinkwater does do refunds. Side hem doesn't bother me at all, I own the RWB Workshirt and Chambray Workshirt and love them both...

i own the grey flannel...for some reason the side hem seems noticeably higher on the plaid twill version...

I've got no problem with the side hem. It gives the hem an interesting silhouette, something more than the nearly flat hems seen on a lot of shirts.

I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the high side hems. They seem higher on the 19th century BDs than the workshirts. IMO, they don't look great untucked and, when tucked, they tend to come untucked on the sides. Of course, I have about six EG workshirts and 19th century BDs, so I've obviously learned to live with it.

In case anyone is interested, I went to Oliver Spencer today which had EG items for 30%. I saw a cotton? bedford in navy or black in a small, as well as the boatneck longsleeves. Saw some other items in mediums, larges, and xl as well.

I agree on both counts, however I've found that it may also depend on the season of the shirt in question. For instance, I have this season's Chambray 19th C. BD and it stays tucked in very well. Recently, I purchased a Broadcloth Plaid F/W 07 19th C. BD from Gary and, not only does the shirt fit slimmer than my newer BD, it seems to have a bit higher side seam and therefore hardly stays tucked in (at the sides) at all.

However, as you said, it hasn't prevented me from buying them.

I like the high side hems alot, gussets are a vintage detail, and gives the shirts a more interesting silhuette. It also gives alot better drape when untucked that regular shirt hems, even if the shirt has a relaxed fit. Where regular shirts have a tendency to "stand out" at the hem in the back, the EG shirts drapes nicely straight down.

I actually really like it but I think it depends on how you wear your gear in general. I wear all my stuff on the more relax side and it works well. But I can see it being a problem if you wear your stuff tighter. As for the higher hem on BD shirts, it's def true. So for the same look as the work shirt, I just size down (only for this season though, as all my 07 BD and work shirts are the same size)

I agree with SB that the high side hem gives it a nice drape. I also accept that EG is work wear inspired and therefore nothing about "fits" is really an argument against the brand. It may be a good reason for an individual not to buy the piece, but EG seems to be about quality first, then interesting materials and finally about "fasion" that is not feminized in anyway.

It took me a while, but as promised, below is a picture of my EG hoodie in a size small (my typical clothing size). This thing is absolutely amazing.

Thanks. I wasn't sure if it would be too slim fitting or if it would be too roomy for me when I ordered, but I was more than happy when I put it on. It's really comfortable and hella soft. My GF is already trying to confiscate it from my closet haha.

Mountain Parka from last year on yoox, lining is woolrich wool: http://www.yoox.com/item.asp?sec=1&Y...Z&sts=sr_men80

No mediums though. I missed out on one of those last year on sale by 10 minutes.

^^^It's (Yoox Mountain Parka) in my cart right now, but trying to convince myself out of it: "I don't need one in San Francisco. I don't need one in San Francisco. I don't..." This could be meaningless, but from the Livedoor Blog: EG Shop in Tokyo Feb 1?
