    for reference I'm 6'0" and generally take a 38/40 in jacket size depending on the cut.

    I want to say that the Truman is "more traditional" - I've found the Bedford to be typically boxy for EG, I fit a large yesterday (a darker grey wool jacket, also lovely, in competition w/ the Truman for new winter layer), and generally have a hard time fitting EG jackets between M and L. I need the L to accomodate my shoulders/chest, but that usually leaves me too much room in the body. That said, the wool Bedford in L was a good fit, integrating the EG look into something that I feel actually fits.

    The Truman in medium really fit me perfectly, the large was clearly large.. The length of the jacket is a bit longer (more typical for a sportcoat). If you don't have the opportunity to compare these two in person, as I did, I do strongly recommend the Truman, even at the price.

    That looks really nice. Where were you able to find it? I used the two I have from the spring, especially the chambray, as super casual unstructured sports jackets by folding the collars down and throwing on a tie.

    Dino - I sure will once i receive the items, hopefully end of the week.

    FlyingLotus - I havent received the items as of yet, but I intend to wear it as a shirt that sits over something else hence why i went Medium in the denim work shirt. Ill top that off with a duffle coat in a navy or the Charcoal with Navy camo which i ordered... And Yes the B/C shirts have gussets, the gussets appear quite high.

    How'd you size the dayton lotus? Looks pretty underwhelming in pics, but it's a good shape and the simplicity will at least accentuate the fabric.

    I just go with my normal EG size, for the dayton - its a bit boxy which i like
    Double check the measurements to make sure though.
    I love them, i hope they keep making more!
