    I tired on the reverse sateen USN pants with my black CP Achilles and the two of them together totally sold me on them.....so much so that I went and bought the brown and navy whipcord versions as well.

    For the person inquiring about Nepenthes, I don't believe they ship internationally.

    Also, on the navy wool denim Bedford, I know Gary at Drinkwater's has tracked down specific items he didn't carry for people before.....might be worth a shot.

    I think most EG stuff goes well with Doc Martens. As always, Birks are a mainstay of the Nepenthes family.

    Please don't start an argument about Birks here.

    Thanks for the help fellas, it's funny you mentioned red wing oxfords because those were the ones I was eyeing. So I grabbed a paid the russet coloured oxfords, for the USN pants. I think CPs will be awesome too. I was also considering a pair of oak street bookmakers -- shoes rather than boots. I'll keep you posted how I go on those. Thanks again for the footwear advice! :)

    To the stores listening in here, I am looking for either this season's Work shirt or Miner shirt in natural cotton herringbone in size M.
    Context has the Work shirt, but is sold out in Medium, Mohawk still has it, but didn't answer my e-mail about shipping internationally.

    Got my hands on the Golden Bear x EG varsity today and unfortunately it's going back. It is a really nice jacket. The worl is a solid mid weight I'd say, the leather is on the lighter side of what I'd like to see in this application, but not too light weight. Construction was very solid and it is fully lined in a poly-cotton blend black fabric and has two internal snap pockets.

    My issues with it are minor, but enough to keep me from holding onto it. The fit (size large jacket, same as my size in this seasons workshirts) was great n the chest and shoulders, a little roomy in the stomach but large at the waist. With a elastic bottom like it has I would expect it tor a slim fit at the bottom so it sits against the body but it hung slightly loose on me at the bottom. Seemed weird for this style of jacket. Also the pockets are a deal killer for me, the jacket is short and top entry pockets make them almost useless for sticking your hands in them....and I like to be able to stick my hands in jacket pockets. Side entry or 45* entry pockets would have been much better and would have gone a long way towards me keeping the jacket.

    Oh well, still a nice piece overall, just not perfect for what I want. It's already in the mail back to Barney's.

    Did you happen to see any xs by chance, as it's at least a 2 hr drive for me and their cs over the phone is horrible.

    Did anyone buy (or at least try on) the shoulder hoody? It comes in OS and I wonder whether it would fit huge on me (I'm a XS-S on most brands, including EG).
