    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.

    A caution into slimming the workadays--you have to be careful with the shape of the pockets. I had an old pair of fatigues taken in from the outseam side and the pockets are a little off now--seamstress also did not attempt to recreate the type of stitch eg uses. They look OK but not ideal

    Good point Shoreman, i'd had something similar done w a baker style pant from 45rpm, but it didn't have the same style stitching. Had them taken in a little from both sides just below the front pockets.

    You should embrace the bagginess of the Fatigue. They are amazing.

    I have Workaday and Orslow fatigues and I too like the baggyness.
