    The measurements on the Garbstore site look odd for the Truman, a big jump from Medium (which seems a really small p2p) to Large. Has anyone tried this on yet in the Indigo or Ecru to add further comment to the one's about the Navy Truman posted on the last page?

    Really want to order one but very hesitant about sizing, normally I'm a medium but they can be snug fitting, ie. FW12 Bedford Whipcord.

    Also Reg. ts(s),
    Agreed on the fit comments, I bought a suit form context awhile back and the jacket was longer than my eg jackets but overall had a better balanced fit, construction and details were also a step up, the slacks did fit weird though.

    Can anyone comment on the Charcoal Tropical Wool fabric? Thinking of picking up a pair of shorts in it.

    True. Couldn't get my arms in a Large when I tried it. Ridiculous.

    I'd never thought I'd say this but if any of you are planning on getting the Lafayette shorts I recommend going a size down. A small fits a w34, plus there are no belt loops, but there are draw strings. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    does anyone know how the workshirts for ss13 fit compared to the ones from the fw12? from my understanding, the fw12 ones fit a little larger than previous seasons. and if anyone can provide measurements, that would be helpful. thx!

    It will fit JRS1979. Cop the one from end and I am around your waist size.

    Work shirts doesn't seem to have changed much. You can find the measurements here: http://www.endclothing.co.uk/brands/engineered-garments/engineered-garments-work-shirt-75954.html


    What is worth noting though is that they seem to have increased the size of the Round collar shirt. A small now has the same pit to pit width as a medium work shirt. And last FW12 I had to size up to medium in both round collar shirt and 19th cent. bd shirt while I still went for small in the work shirts.

    So far the only EG SS piece I have picked up is the Fatigue pants in Olive Sateen.

    Considering either the Ground Jacket or Wind Breaker. Thoughts on either?

    I saw the ground jacket in blue at start london and thought it was really strong in person. The fabric is nice but the collar/hood seemed a little bit off (from what I remember, bigger than I would have preferred) and there were a couple other small cut-related details that didn't work for me personally. But aside from all that and more importantly, I just got a good feel from it and thought it was a pretty affable piece.

    how is the fabric weight on the high count reversed sateen fatigue pants? Pics on the Mohawk website look nice but makes me think the fabric is really lightweight.

    I was told by the folks at Nepenthes NY it's very lightweight, almost like nylon.

    ^thanks, I appreciate. Unfortunately I was hoping for a mid-weight fabric, something all season. Oh well...the wait for the perfect pair of fatigue pants continues....

    Same here, I've been tempted to just get the Workaday ones and have the leg slightly slimmed down.
