    The natural FW12 miner shirt is in Herringbone Cotton Dobby, thus far (don't recall seeing another version yet). This fabric is different than the one used in SS12 and is likely warmer.

    From the lookbooks, appears that there is a U-Neck sweater and the knit pullover hoodies. Workaday usually has sweatshirts and hoodies, though the main EG line usually has these two in the seasonal fabrics.

    BTW, if anyone's still looking for SS12 items, Bastille in SF has a bunch of smaller sized items, including lots of cinch shorts and a couple of jackets. Picked up the Porter Jacket in grey at 70% off.

    For the SF folks, no deliveries yet to Steven Alan (Fillmore), Bastille (Union Square) or Industrie Denim (North Beach).

    I've placed an order for the Indigo Denim, quite excited. The olive looks nice too, looks brown in some shots... Heard/read that the fit is slimmer this season.

    ^ "too bad" because I couldn't find it on the Silver and Gold website -- guessing they're sold out

    I look through the Timpoblete selection of picture (thanks for sharing!) and I have to noted that the sleeve of jackets are still very long, also, the body seems more loose and easy than last winter season... it's only my impression?

    I wonder if this sia matter of style or not.

    I intend EG like this, easy and comfortable (but not oversize style) but what I see in some shop look book, especially here in Europe is that the style is introduced more fitted and more slimmer.

    Also I was thinking that for Japanese market, where the most of the picture comes, EG cut special proportions for the size, somebody in the industry tell me that Japanese market need special fit, more tight and more short to satisfy the needs of the customer that like a fit more near the body (I don't know if this is true or not).
    Looking the pic it seems that all the items are so big and bulky, especially the cruiser jacket, the parka, the mackinaw, or ook some sleeve in the baker jacket: large and turn up.... my impression is that they are like a size or two more.

    What do you think about it?

    Is the confirmation of loose or semi-loose fit or the items are just put on the wrong model size?

    Thank you for your opinion, I'm so confuse, I'll going to be in Tokyo end of august and I would like to buy something, but I'm afraid to not find the correct fit, if they make special sizes for that market.

    Think sizing as always is all over the place, the work shirts for a/w 12 are cut wider across the shoulders and chest than previous seasons, whereas the field parka appears to be similar dimensions to previous seasons. I think the pics from timpoblete are just misleading, just looks like a tiny guy trying on his big brothers clothes.

    Looks like a pretty good season, although from a personal point of view I struggle to find anything that's much different or any better than what I've already bought from eg over several years. Add to this the poor attention to fit on many items and the continued price increases I will probably only buy if there is a standout item.

    Can't say much regarding fit. Tends to be from piece to piece. I have a lot of shirts where the sleeve is slightly long. I've had a shirt or two hemmed, but most of the time I just live with the long sleeve and cuff it, splitting the width of the cuff. Don't worry much about width of the body either, as I usually layer under a vest or cardigan, with the shirt tucked in, and pants riding high.

    Also, it's very difficult to judge fit based on the Japanese pics. You don't know how tall these guys are, how skinny they may be, in most cases what size they're wearing, and also how long are their arms? I use the JP pics as guides to how the jacket looks in general while worn (rather than just hanging on the rack solo or lying down on the floor), but rarely use it as a guide to judge fit. Measurements are the best way to guess.

    BTW, for the Type 5 Jean Jacket styling, refer to pics of Angelo. It's one of his signature styles.
