    Don't think they stocked anything from this past FW. Not sure if they'll continue to carry the brand.

    I grabbed that orange irridescent one the second it was announced. I may have mentioned ill be wearing it a lot. It's my favourite shirt so far. I even bought the navy pinpoint dot (red/white) definitely the best shirts this season as far as b/d is concerned. Don't hesitate fellas. Get em :)

    Does anyone know if there are other shirts in this colorway? I'm also trying to figure out what colors were used for the 19th BD this season. Anyone know? So far I have seen:

    19th BD Shirt - Madras Micro Plaid
    19th BD Shirt - Madras Yellow/Blue
    19th BD Shirt - Red Blue pinstripe
    19th BD Shirt - White

    I love the look of that shirt, but with my skin tone (white guy who feels most comfortable in blue, grey, green and brown) I'm afraid it'll look a bit yuck on me. Are there any fitpics of models wearing this shirt?

    That's fair I guess but honestly I think anyone can pull it off. I've got olive skin and I still think it works well. Here's a pic taken from second stage a store in Japan. [​IMG]

    Wow, Okay! That guy's got a similar tone to me. I'll have to give this shirt a try -

    Yeah, that profile pic bothered me too. I have two EG popovers from previous seasons and neither fit like that, and I definitely don't have a six-pack. Must be his body shape throwin' things off. I ordered this season's surf print and have yet to receive it, but I'll load pics when I get the chance.

    Well, you're probably not going to be happy then. In my experience, it actually flares out much more than the photos. The shirt definitely is cut in an A shape; narrow up top, increasing in width towards the bottom. The surf print fabric is super lightweight and crispy which doesn't help the shape.

    Are the Andover jackets pretty year round collection but the fabric is just changed up for S/S and F/W, respectively? And is it the only jacket without the patch pockets?

    Just curious about the degree to which it flares out, particularly on that fella. That's an interesting take on the fabric-- I'm looking forward to checking it out. I do have one of the button-down camp shirts from '11 and it definitely flares out-- the popovers less so imo. The only other pics I've seen of the popovers are on the kink webshop. Would you mind posting links or images to the pics that you've seen?

    Mine flares out more in every direction than that picture. I have wide shoulders/chest which I think exaggerates it even more. Top half fits fine, but tons of excess material in the lower half. I'm still contemplating selling or returning it.

    There are other photos on Context and Indigo and Cotton of various popovers.

    Is this the sort of thing that could be altered via tailoring? Or too much trouble?

    I'm hesitant to have someone do some experimental hacking on an $192 shirt. I think the options are: embrace the fit, wear it under a layer... or don't wear it.
