    so, how is the feel and weight of the navy heathered oxford workshirt? What about the fit? I'm usually a large but I went down to a medium in this seasons chambray and the fit is perfect for me, but the plaid twill workshirt was a little snug in a medium.

    How do Bedford jackets generally fit? Is it recommended to size up? Thanks in advance!

    My experience is that the Bedford sizing is quite variable from season-to-season and sometimes even within seasons from fabric-to-fabric. I usually wear a size M in EG and have had Bedfords in both size M and size L. I realize that doesn't help you much, but, assuming you can't try the piece on, it is probably best to get measurements for the particular model you are looking to purchase.

    I am resolved to get one of these, they are my "grail" piece. What do we think of which colorway to get though? Awesome red or subtle indigo?

    I was scoping those out as well. I'd lean towards the indigo. Do we know what the price on these is?

    I'd go the other way and pick up the red. I'm thinking about picking up the button shawl in that colourway. Not quite sure I can pull off a button shawl at the moment though.

    ^ +1. The Button Shawl looks intriguingly interesting, though not sure if it's easy to pull it off.

    Too many words about sizing for EG in general below:

    Sizing advice is tough with EG because 'fit' is relative to how you handle the signature triangular cut most jackets have (narrow shoulders/chest + looser at the bottom). IME there are two camps of EG fans (neither is right/wrong, they just have different preference). The first group is people that prefer a slimmer, cropped, dandy-ish fit which minimizes the triangular shape. That usually involves buying the smallest size they can fit into/sizing down. On the other side is people that prefer the looser look. I fall into this camp, and as a result my opinion of EG items is that they are TTS or you should size up if between size. I'm a Small or Medium depending on the brand and I buy all my EG in Medium. The result is that all of my jackets and shirts fit dead on in the shoulders, are a bit loose in the chest, and have a pronounced triangle shape when viewed from the side.

    Ok, here's my $0.02 on the bedford, so basically theres 2 types of bedford fit:

    - Boxy fit (normal shoulder width for EG, flairs out towards bottom)
    - Tent fit (super tight shoulders, tighter chest then more pronounced flaring out towards bottom)

    I agree with tw's comments too but another thing I've noticed is that taller guys tend to go looser and shorter guys tend to go slimmer.


    And regarding the salmon people print coat, I would go with the color that works best with your skin tone and wardrobe.

    The peacoats of "Salmon People" are a brutal $1000 US . . . though good winter coats ain't ever cheap.

    That pretty much rules that coat out for me. I was hoping to get a nice heavy wool winter coat for < $700 if possible.
