    Depends on material season. I have a size small cotton whipcord from a few seasons back and it measures smaller than most the recent seasons. Also depends in desired fit (do you want to layer?).

    I'd suggest going true to size.

    Wish I could see/try on that field jacket. 550 is steep for a lightweight jacket

    That's definitely steep. Where did you get that price?

    I bought the Penn last summer and wore it all the time. I like it a lot. It was slightly A shaped until I had my tailor take in the sides a bit, which was easy because its unlined. I wouldn't do this to a Bedford or something, but I think lighter fabrics that won't drape as heavily can benefit from this operation. The hem is slightly curved. Also there is a pleat/fold in the back by each shoulder that makes riding my bike more comfortable.

    This pic isn't great - I hope it gives you an idea of the general shape of the jacket:

    That red windbreaker seems to be the fan favourite so far, I scored one myself and I can't wait to see it. Also got me
    - the baker in paisley,
    - Truman indigo denim
    - the fatigue short in light blue ripstop, and
    - (my personal favourite) the orange rounded collar shirt irridescent chambray. I've a feeling ill be wearing this particular piece a lot.

    Knight,
    What size is your Truman jacket? Do you mind giving me pit to pit and shoulder measurements? I'm very tempted to order the Ecru cotton one. I'm generally a medium in EG outerwear but have to size up or down sometimes. Thanks!

    Sure, I just measured the ptp it was about 20 inches, the sts was (approx) 18.5 inches. It fit like most if not all the sport coat jackets I got from EG namely the FW ones. It's got some nice darting to compliment your waist. This is my first Truman so I'm pretty stoked. I'm looking forward to matching it with the Truman short and vest also in denim, could look real nice. The Ecru one is gorgeous.

    I hope these measurements help you. If in doubt call Nepenthes and speak to Abdul.

    I have the popover from a couple of seasons ago (not sure which one) and it´s really flared and big around the belly compared to chest/shoulders. Guess it´s a typical EG fit though.

    Like the red windbreaker myself. A little too pricey for me perhaps though. Will have to call into the Bureau for a browse sometime soon. Maybe it will take my fancy more once I try it on

    Their new website is launching this week too with the new s/s range:)

    I'd love to see a photo of the orange iridescent chambray. I really like the Chauncey shirt's cut and details so I'll be picking up a couple of them from this season and I know that iridescent orange is one of the available fabrics- Just haven't seen the fabric/color in person or online yet.
