    Is there anywhere I can even try on a Baker or Bedford in SF?! Looking for olive wool or herringbone options.

    MAC should have one or the other or maybe both... haven't been in a couple weeks, so I can't say for sure. Bastille just got the camo wool Bedford.

    Where did you get the Bedford? I could only find it in one store, Arrow + Arrow in Austin, but they were out of my size. Then I noticed the fabric is also on the Landsdown, Jack Straw in Seattle had it but they were out of my size. Finally found my size at The Bureau. They seem to have the largest inventory. I'm on my way to FedEx to pick it up
    I hope you enjoy it.

    I got the Bedford from Arrow + Arrow. Great customer service from them as well!

    I have both....you should get both as they are both petty great. Blue is a nice mid weight and soft this year, reall a cool fabric. Vintage grey is thick and reall solid. Little more slim fitting than the blue, probably due to fabric weight. I'd have a hard time picking one, the blue is my favorite blue cha,bray they have done but the vintage is just really cool.

    Yeah I got both of those. The grey vintage chambray appears to be boxier in fit than the blue chambray. The blue chambray fabric is a lot lighter as well. Personally, go for the grey vintage chambray!

    Thought I’d show some pics of the Landsdown Jacket in navy wool denim that arrived yesterday. Ordered a large, shoulder width is around a half inch wider than I’d like but hate to send it back and have the medium be too small.

    Here are the measurements in inches

    Shoulder seam to shoulder seam - 19
    Pit to pit - 21
    Hem width - 22
    Sleeve length from outer shoulder seam down - 26
    back length - 29.5

    I was trying to find my size in the Bedford with the same material but Arrow + Arrow sold out. I was surprised only a few stores ordered the jackets with this cloth.

    Dino: I went true to size. I spoke to some of the guys from nepenthes and recommended it as well. i [personally] learnt a valuable lesson sizing down. My advice -- stay tts.

    Flying Lotus: Thanks buddy! How'd you go with your Work Shirt? Hope the pics help you in making your choice. Also I mentioned a while back that i went gung-ho this season with my wardrobe being mainly EG and Post Overalls, It's starting to really show now as well as pay off.

    Thanks Knight. As I'm a XS, I just thought I may need S as it's an outer wear.
