    Mine was a customer order through Gary drink8648 I'd start there :) Otherwise, End are receiving it -- as well as navy duck canvas and black duck canvas versions.

    I too received the long bush shirt but didn't want to share any insights as the lengthy nature of the shirt [skirting concept] wasn't too well received, but im always eager to try new things. It's the same fabric as miner shirts and shawls [heavy twill].

    Also there is a Cruiser jacket this season.

    The denim looked great, but I didn't want the "sheen" on a jacket, so I opted for this one... plus I got it on sale. I think the denim is typically 12oz and it does have a little bit of a shine to it, but after a few washes I'm sure it will age just like a pair of raw denim. I think it's worth a shot. You'll definitely get more natural wear on the denim railroader, whereas this overdyed canvas has very high contrasted fades. I'm hoping that washing it will tone them down, but it needs more wear first.

    The current Coverall comes in denim as well. But, I'm on the edge, probably like what you said. Don't look good from all the photos that I have seen, no chance to see it in the flesh.

    I like the one in navy duck canvas but prefer the weight to be lighter though. Probably have to wait patiently for the SS14 collection.

    Thanks for the hint regarding the Cruiser, I did not even notice it, I think I mixed up with the CPO Shirt. Interesting version, eager to see the other CW

    I really want a tab collar shirt, but I can't seem to find collar measurements anywhere. Anyone know what the collar girth is on a size small? I'd hate to buy a shirt with a collar I cant close.

    I just got the black and the creme slip-ons through a friend. Was told to size down .5 I am going to cry if they are too small. So stoked! Will probably order the sun forager authentics thursday over the phone.

    I got the navy in store today--I went tts to wear with socks occasionally, and they're a bit loose with my wide feet. The store said the size down .5 (the guy at the counter even reminded me...). You should be fine.

    Perfect, I plan on wearing barefoot or with thin socks, so sizing down .5 should be perfect! How were the authentics? I was thinking of maybe getting the sunforger, I think they would look awesome beat up.

    The olive drab are excellent as well, though I did not pick up a pair--not a big authentic guy.
