    I think a medium would suit you better. the small may be tight in the shoulders/chest.

    Does anyone know US or online stockists that carry the light blue work shirt (w/ black buttons)?

    What's the sizing like for EG pants? I'm particularly interested in the USN pants. I've tried on the s/s cinch pants, and found that the 32 fit a bit tighter in the waist than I expected. I'm typically a 30 or 31 in most brands I wear (eg., W+H, N&F). Any recommendations for sizing on the USN pants?

    By some fluke of luck, people are asking about all the items I've happened to try on....which isn't extensive by any means.

    Tried on the USN pants in Reverse Sateen and my opinion was they fit snug for the tagged size (34 for me). I tried on a pair of W + H pants right after in a 33 (which have always fit fairly true for me) and they fit about the same. I'm typically a 33 waist and would probably have to go with the 34 in these since a 32 would be too tight and they don't seem to make odd sizes. They also have an extra button and cinches on the waist to make them more snug if desired.

    IMO sizing is all over the map with EG pants. However, that being said, most tend to stretch a bit, after not a lot of wear. This was true for the USN pants I purchased a couple of years ago in reverse sateen; the same with a pair of workaday cords and two other trousers I have. If you can button them then get them, because they will stretch.

    ^Thanks for the helpful responses fellas! It sounds like 32 would suit me well.

    I seem to be a consistent 34 (or M, which is how some pants are tagged) across the board, the exception being the workaday cords, in which I'm a 36. And I'll back up JRyder in that things typically stretch out a bit (a least the cottons... have no experience with wool pants from EG).

    Does anyone know if anything else is available in Olive Wool Flannel other than the CPO jacket? It's one of the nicest fabrics this season.

    I'm also looking for the Olive military scarf, as shown below. Does anyone carry this outside of Japan?

    OK so i've noticed shirt sizing is across the board this season, even between different fabrics in the same shirt style. For instance. The chambray miner shirt in L has a really loose fit on me, but I can barely button the plaid flannel version in the same size. Anyway, I tried on the broadcloth polka dot or somethin version of round collar shirt at nepenthes, and it fit perfect. I really want the flannel version they have at Inventory, but I can't tell whether it will fit b/c of this miner shirt. Has anyone tried it on, in comparison to similar shirts??

    Does anyone know of any non-UK or Japanese stockists selling this miner shirt in medium?:

    Jonathan & Olivia had it, but sold out of my size. US or European stockists would be preferable, as I don't think anyone else in Canada has it.

    Not sure of any non uk stockists but was looking at this at the garbstore website and the sizing is tiny, probably worth looking at the size guide so you know which size you will need.
