    I think this is the same denim EG used for SS12, just a bit more heavyweight. I own the SS12 Popover BD in this fabric (pic attached) and I absolutely love it - it looks kind of rigid in photos but it the material is soft to the touch, more like chambray, and drapes well.

    I know it's a SS12 question, but where did you buy this from?

    I bought it in a shop called "Natural" in Fukushima. I live in Japan (no worries, not in Fukushima, I just traveled there once to see the aftermath). I think it was a special item made for that shop only.

    Yes, shorter, I agree!

    But I have seen the Truman at Pitti Uomo on Daiki in person and in fact he wear more comfy that the guy at Start does.
    The way how Daiki wear the Truman is more similar to the Japanese guy, except the sleeve that on Daiki does not need to be turned up.

    I think fit is very very important.

    In my opinion this does not involve only personal taste: but how the designer imagine the item in his mind.
    I have talk a couple of time with Daiki about this and he always say that he doesn't agree with some shops that season by season ask items skinny, smaller, too much tight.

    I've understand he think items must be more "regular", the next S/S2013 that I have try at Pitti Uomo is more comfortable, more easy to wear and from my personal first impression it seems that jackets are more better tailored than before.

    I need to find a good way to get some fit pics...every time I take some they look like crap so I never post them. And I agree with S-NMBR, you definitely wear EG better than most. I'm very happy to see EG moving away from the slimmer fit and back to a little more generous fit, SS12 was just too slim to fit me right. FW is much better already but my the old chambrays I picked up for 09 or so are the best fitting of them all for me.

    I need your guys help.

    Has the bedford been made in different materials? I have seen a very soft looking one made in cotton/linen, and a (from the looks of it) more heavy made in calgary cotton.. are these observations correct or?

    Has anyone tried on the USN Whipcord pants yet? How do they fit? Is the material thick?

    Thanks in advance...

    Yes, the Bedford has been made in many materials both lined and unlined.

    The fit is similar to the oxford fatigues from the ss. I have those in a 30, and the whipcord pants are a little bit slimmer. It's more pronounced as the fabric's much thicker.
