    I have the LDT in Serge wool and it is quite a trim fit, my herringone bedford is quite boxy.

    Yeah, I would get an employee discount on the jacket. Haven't seen the other colorways. Link? Grey/orange sounds legit.

    Cansty i have bought the said jacket in xs twice already different fabrics both a bit big on me. Ended up selling both long time ago. The workshirts in xs are a bit big on me too but i wear it anyway.

    I have to wear my pants with fuller legs with my workshirts anything i have that is super slim taper makes it looks like i have a huge top block with stick legs :).

    I can see that with the workshirts but I'm surprised to hear about the andovers, I find them to fit me the slimmest overall (body+sleeves) out of all other eg jackets.
    So what do you do for jackets to wear with your eg? have you tried beams+ or united arrows?

    Afaik b+ & ua only have sz sm in the us but its pretty much the equivalent of eg xs (not sure if they do make xs in jp/asia market).
    I have a couple of items and highly recommend, imho b+ has a trimmer cut in their outerwear vs eg (no A cut, just slim strait) quality is on par too.

    I'm normally a (western) 36 and the Andover fits perfectly in the shoulders and chest in Small.

    The andovers usually have the closest shoulder & pit measurements which made the trimmest fit for me.
    How far should you be able to pull the chest away from yourself when buttoned?
    I've recently realized i'm xs shirt size, is it weird to be xs shirt and small in blazer?
    Smalls from a few years ago seem trimmer to me than the last two years...

    Just two questions guys,

    First regarding the Herringbone Bedford, just wanted to know the differences between the FW11 version and the current version in terms of fit and thickness ? I'm considering going true to size on the current one, but also i could size down on the FW 11

    As for the Lafayette Polka Dot Flannel, I read here that someone sized down. Is this compulsory ? I don't necessarily want to wear it as an overshirt, that's why I dont really know.

    Any help would be highly appreciated

    Thanks guys

    Cant answer about the lafayette shirt but im pretty sure the older herringbone bedford was only semi lined with unlined sleeves (somebody correct me if im wrong here). the newer models have lined sleeves and fit fairly slim in the body.

    I have the fw 11 herringbone bedford. The sleeves are lined with the usual synthetic stuff, but the upper half of the body inside has a piece of cotton attached at the top that hangs there and acts as a bit of a liner. Hard to describe.

    Thank guys.

    I do understand what you mean by this piece of cotton, so the current version is prone to be slimmer than old one right ?

    Nice, I haven't seen that polka dot andover yet, does anyone know a stockist in Europe ?

    Can't wait to see other CW for that wool cruiser.


    I've been told by a french retail (Antikboutik) that EG quality was not improving so they stop carrying EG.
    As far as i'm concerned I find quality very goog but i'm into EG since FW12 so I don't have enough "experience" to speak about a lack of quality.

    What do you think about the quality evolution of the brand ?

    Since I have this gift card I'm pretty much stuck with getting something that Odin got - thinking the exclusive polka dot/floral work shirt or the red miner shirt. Just waiting on XS measurements so I can confirm.

    their selection of exclusive workshirts is cool. I normally don't like white shirts, but that white one is kinda cool and the floral polka-dot is something else.
