    The fit's great, not too slim pretty TTS. I'm wearing a size 30, could have probably gotten away w a 32 as well for a little more relaxed fit.

    EG 'Andford' jacket (ie. half Andover, half Bedford) exclusively for Loftman. Different for sure.

    They also have exclusive Chesterfields

    Err..is right. A fine concept to put up on the wall as a piece perhaps but what is the context of you wearing this out and about? You could walk around the store and since everyone understood the garment they might appreciate it. Step outside and you look like a chump or just someone with a really awful taste. Then, I'm no fashion designer.

    At worst this is helpful for all those "how does the Bedford fit vs the Andover?" questions!

    The Chesterfields on the other hand. Legit

    Haha yeah well loftman is based in Japan. I'm sure no one is going to bat an eyelid in Shibuya or wherever.

    Besides you'd have the starting point for an excellent halloween costume

    can anyone comment whether it is worth getting the wool serge bedford? i already have the whipcord version from last a/w and can't decide whether to go for the wool serge and/or the 24oz melton wool version

    Just received some olive lb pants from the bureau, and it looks like at one point they were meant to have drawstring hems.

    (Pic for reference, not mine)

    Pretty cool... I wonder why they didn't put a string in them.

    Might do it myself if I can find a strap similar to the one in the waist.

    A lot of EG pants come like this. I've had a few pairs of Desert Pants that also feature that cool little detail

    ^^ yep, also the USN pants.

    if i have my history correct, USN pants actually used to come with a drawstring in the ankle.

    I'd love to know where to buy a nice quality draw string to put in them. I'd love to do this to my ghurka pants. Any thoughts on this?

    speaking of the usn pants, just got the olive whipcord pair i bought off yoox. blown away. i own enough eg at this point that i shouldn't be surprised by how nice the garments are, but I always am. whipcord fabric is super super tough and construction is awesome, so many details. also, the fit is a perfect slim straight fit. going to be getting a lot of wear out of these. the more eg i buy the more i fall in love with the brand. :slayer:

    I can't point to a source but I might try some narrow-ish cotton herringbone tape. Think that's what's used in the recent fatigue shorts. Probably a bitch to thread through the pant hem, though.

    Herringbone tape would be good. To feed it through the hem, you can use a strong wire to push it through (make a loop at the end of the wire) or tie it to something smaller that you can more easily move inside the hem (like a closed safety pin or paperclip).

    Better craft stores or online resources like etsy are good places to source tapes: http://www.etsy.com/listing/117614366/3-yards-of-cotton-herringbone-tape-black
