    As I'm usually buying my EG by fabric rather than "model", I was wondering which items will be available this season in Olive Reverse Sateen and Ripstop. So far I compiled:

    NYCO Ripstop
    • Field Parka (Olive, Khaki, Navy)

    Olive Reverse Sateen
    • Shawl collar jacket
    • Desert Pant
    • Type 7 Pant
    • USN Pant
    • Painter Pant

    Did I miss anything? I'd like to see some pants turn up in Ripstop but it's unlikely for the Winter season...

    I received my olive shawl collar shirt jacket yesterday from Gary at Drinkwater's! The details on this piece are so awesome, and the fit works great for me! I'm super stoked! Thanks Gary!

    can you describe the fit relative to the rest of the EG line? That is one piece I'm strongly considering this season but haven't had a chance to even see measurements on them yet to judge.

    While I haven't tried on a ton of outerwear pieces by EG, I'd say that the fit is pretty on par. It's not super slouchy, in fact I'd say it's a bit more fitted in the chest, shoulders, and arms than other shirt jackets I've tried by EG. The length is also on the shorter side, making a great piece to layer with a button down shirt underneath. If you have any more specific questions, let me know.

    I'm now lusting after this seasons Sweat Pants as available through Oi Polloi. The price is close to $275 after converting the pound and factoring in shipping, which is all a little much for some sweat pants, no matter how sweet. Any US stockists for these? Maybe I'll see what Gary can do.

    Think it will be one of the "IT" outwear pieces of this year.

    Oi Polloi now has their second stock up.

    Does anyone know where I can get the Olive Landsdown Corduroy Jacket that can ship to Europe?

    Do you wear the same size as EG shirt? Is the fabric meant for cold weather?

    I'm seriously considering this piece but cannot decide if I should take Navy or Olive.

    Just saw the shawl collar shirt jacket in chino twill from oi polloi web, looks great. I think the chino twill is more suitable & appropriate for me.

    Anyone knows how many colours are there in the chino twill?

    Has anybody tried on the FW12 Bedford yet?
    How does it fit compared to SS12?

    Yes, I wear the same size in EG shirting, and the fabric is very wooly. Like it feels like a substantial uniform wool, as the name implies.

    ^^ Thanks for the info, Brattman. I'll stay the same size too.

    I'll go for the chino twill, it's more wearable for me in where I am.
