    nope, I'm with you...the red is nicer than the indigo in the salmon print.

    would say the same about the lafayette jacket--navy/black ends up looking dingy in a way the red/navy and grey/navy don't

    I too have a questions regarding fit of Engineered Garments jackets/coats.

    I'm new to the outerwear but have purchased a number of tops. Unfortunately, my build does not work with the sizing of the shirts (the are all really long in the arms on me) but I really admire a number of outerwear pieces.

    So, my questions...

    It would appear that jackets like the "Work Jacket", "Workaday Utility", and "Coverall" coat have the "bell" shaped design I've heard so much about but not actually experienced by trying on. Can someone tell me if I'm remotely close to guessing the cut of these jackets?

    I typically take coats/jackets with at least 24 inches pit to pit. What size should I be after?

    For reference I LOVE the fit of Post O'alls and take these in size XL.

    Many thanks and sorry for the lengthy post. I live in San Diego and do not have a stockist that I can just pop in and try stuff on and am not currently in a financial position to just order pieces to try on.

    Yup. And much shorter than the rest of the shirts. Still having a bit of a hassle getting used to the short length myself.

    I don't have any other EG shirts so can't compare, but the length feels alright to me, although I've only been wearing it as a shirt jacket.
    For the record, I'm 6"4 and 200 pounds, got the L

    The classic shirt is a camp shirt with long sleeves.. I have one from 09 I think in a gray flannel plaid. Super comfy but def. short and boxy. One is enough for me.

    Yes. I have a plaid as well, black, green, red tartan like from this season. I like wearing it unbuttoned above a printed white t-shirt. But would most like to wear it as an over shirt, but don't really know how to do that since it's plaid. I think it works better the other way around, with for example a plain grey classic shirt above a patterned shirt (as you would wear a CPO). Someone mentioned wearing it above a chambray work shirt, haven't tried that out but suspecting it might be a little odd. Any ideas? How do you wear yours?

    ^^^since mine is a cotton flannel I wear it over gray black or white tShirts. I looked at the red wool classic shirt the other day at bellerose here in Paris--IMO that cut works best as a regular shirt rather than an over shirt, mostly because the camp collar needs to lie flat


    I do have a CPO in the gray herringbone wool that I wear over lonsleeve Ts or over OCBDs as a sports coats substutute.

    Although not truly pertaining to FW13, this discussion has prompted me to sell a pair of hardly worn EG x McNairy Longwings in brown. I bought them in a US12 wishfully thinking that they would fit, but after 3 years of shoe care and <10 wears, I have decided to part with them as unfortunately, my wishful thinking hasn't made my feet any smaller.

    I've put them up on the marketplace here http://www.styleforum.net/t/376353/...-mark-mcnairy-longwing-brogue-brown-size-12us and will put them on ebay in the coming days.

    It would be nice for these puppies to go to a new home where they will be loved and worn, rather than just loved and admired.
