    @agvs I can't compare to previous seasons, but the one I have does seem rather long and the length is actually accentuated by the lack of high side gussets.

    FWIW, I felt that this season's short sleeve shirts have actually been a bit slimmer in the chest, but maybe I'm just getting fatter.

    What about the camp shirts? Any advice on sizing?

    I need to do a mini-rant on EG sizing.

    I inquired about measurements for the SS16 blue dungaree workshirt and 19thC buttondown. Why would the p2p measurement for these in say a Large (22.5") be wider than the p2p measurement for a SS16 Bedford jacket (21.5" in Large)? The Bedford is intended to be worn over a shirt such as the workshirt or the 19thC buttondown so I would think the Bedford would be cut fuller, not narrower, than the shirts. At least, that would result in a better fit for me and a likely purchase.

    Jackets are usually cut closer than shirts in general. In tailored clothes for example I wear a size 40 jacket, which has a 21" pit to put measurement, but most of my shirts measure 22"-23".

    Can anyone comment on the activecloth Knockabout Shorts fit? Looking for around a 34" waist, and going by TBB measurements it looks like that'd be a Med.

    I can't specifically speak for the Knockabout Shorts, but my experience has been S=32, M=34. I'd recommend the Medium.

    I think the SK8 hi's can work with EG. This is definitely an AW appropriate make-up though, pictured with SS16 ripstop fatigues, which don't quite work- I think black trousers, a little looser, and it's a good pairing, bound to be something that fits that bill this AW. Not the sort of shoe to wear with a Bedford or Andover however, but there's plenty more casual options every season.

    I also should say that I don't intend to wear them with odd laces, was just trying out the options to see which ones I preferred.

    ^ @Beedub -- thoughts on the Sk8-His? Did they come with 2 sets of laces (olive + black)?

    I like them, quality is good, particularly nice leather and the suede is decent too. The back half of the insole is also leather, which adds a nice, slightly more lux feel to them. And yes, they came with the two pairs of laces. As I already mentioned, definitely more of an AW shoe, due to the colours and materials used, I'm planning on keeping the palette pretty muted when I wear them.

    What's the sizing like on the Type 6 Jean? I'm a S in Ghurka and Fatigues, and a 32 in Cinch Pants.

    I'm a 32 pretty much across the board in EG pants and type 6 in 32 fit me. I had the ripstop olive ones from this season although I've since sold them.

    I would expect so because it's a Timex Camper.

    Yes. Comes complete with annoyingly loud ticking sound and inability to keep correct time (I'm constantly adjusting the time).

    However, it looks ridiculously cool as hell, so that basically offsets any detracting features mentioned above.
