    Large, maybe even xl considering your physique and style, andover is the slimmest cut of eg jacket, the p2p on a ss L is gonna be between 20 and 20.5 inches

    You're right, Daiki released one for WWM too, that blue and black one with a hood, I think it was in 2010. If it first appeared as ss in ss12 that would explain why I missed it, didn't buy anything from that season nor had a look at it until the sales. Yup, that's correct...


    I'd like to think that the coated canvases and pc gabardine are water repellent/proof, but is the jacquard?

    Cheers Dino :) if you have any other Qs feel free to pm.

    Shingles I may be wrong when I say this but both types have their own functional strengths -- the iridescent one appears quite technical, everyday and will keep you dry from the odd shower. Where as the cotton jacquard will keep you warmer during an icy, windy chill and fits in line moreso with the 1968 theme.

    If you're after something to keep you dry I'd go for the iridescent ponchos. Enjoy mate.

    Does anyone here ever wear 19th Century BDs without a jacket?

    Just got my first summer weight and the back of it is enormous and looks like a dress. Curious if I should just have it tailored, or if I'm completely missing the point of how it ought to fit.

    i have. it just fits that way. if you're going for the slim fit look that's not EG.

    19th c BD is definitely the most exaggerated example of the EG shirt cut. Embrace it or find another style that suits your tastes more :) The round collar and tab collar shirts have the most traditional 'slim' fit if that's more your style

    Definitely not into the "slim fit," but the box pleat in the back coupled with the ample material is just a ton of material in the back. Coupled with the extended tail, it's drastic. Totally understand/agree that it's the most exaggerated of the EG cuts.

    @TWorkSheets - Thanks for the suggestion for rounded/tab collars. I literally didn't piece together that my tab collar shirts fit differently than this.

    Post a fit pic? EG is relaxed but shouldn't be oversized

    It can be slim too, depending on the size that fit your body shape. I'm a XS in most EG & they are all pretty slim fitting to me.

    More of a cross-post from the EG FW '13 thread (though it was really a FW11 item), but here's a fit pic of the black boucle shawl knit jacket from FW11 that I luckily snagged for a good price on ebay recently:

    Happy I found this thread! Cotton Piquet Bedford, with rolled up sleeves to fight the heat. Last year I decided to go for it without trying them on, and bought my first EG item. I'm very happy and enjoyed the fit in general even though I don't seem to have the right build. Anyone know if there's an even lighter jacket in this year's summer collection? Like 31 Celsius light.

    Would you say it's the chest? It's a very wrinkly fabric and the sleeves are rolled up. It's a size L. There's room in the shoulder (armholes a little low) and center area (fist and a half) and I had to shorten the arms and take the lower back in a little blecaute it flared out behind me. I was going to get the lightweight Andover now but it seems very slim!

    It's more on the length, the shoulder and chest all seems fine. Notice from the pics how the sleeves are at least 2 inches from your wrist, and how the bottom of the jacket compared to where your thumb is. You seem like a pretty broad/muscular guy, which is a good thing, but just not the build that EG is made for. I workout alot too, and I kinda have the same problem, shoulder is always tight, but everywhere else is too big. I don't have extra long arms, so most of my problems can be managed by a trip to my local tailor.

    Thank you. I think it's a great jacket. What other color pants would you wear it with?

    It's weird. To get the "right" lenght I would have to be almost 10 cm short but just as "wide". The shoulders are actually big, I pull them up a little (and the sleeves are rolled up in the picture). I'll post a picture of a heavier Bedford later. One I haven't taken it to a tailor yet because winter never arrives. Please let me know what you think.

    I like that something is off though. It's also fun because no one wears anything like it where I live. People are always intrigued and compliment how casual it looks, even though it's such a basic blazer. The buttons with the metal rings never fail to amaze. Imagine if I had a tunic.

    I just started looking for a new spring fall jacket and haven't tried on any EG yet but from what i have read these are trim or more of a fitted cut. I wear a 42 Barbour bedale jacket and had to go to a XL in the Ursala to fit in shoulders. I'll need to get the sleeves hemmed. I tried the L in Apolis USMC wax jacket. The length, sleeve etc all fit well but the shouders are tight when lifting my arms but everywhere else fits fine. Does sizing up 1 usually work in EG? I haven't been able to try an XL in Apolis or any EG yet. Arpenteur Mayenne jacket looked like a nice compromise for a chore jacket with a generous cut. Any experiences in comparing EG and Arpenteur? I like the EG choices and hope to be able to try a L and XL on.

    Any thoughts experiences welcome

    thanks for the time
