    Nice, I'm getting the matching ghurka shorts, will wait for the Baker to go on sale. There's a good chance that it'll sit on the shelves here in sunny Southern California.

    Have you seen the shorts for sale anywhere? That fabric is one of my favorites this season.

    Ms. CWI seemed amused by my enthusiasm for the batik. I showed her some of the women's stuff (and some funky Dries patterns, which she rolled her eyes at) that she liked... I'll probably have to buy it for her to wear it though :embar: MAC in SF said they're getting a shipment in on Friday, so they should have more stuff by next weekend.

    Bureau belfast will be getting the cambridge short I think in that fabric.

    How do you guys size the Baker / Bedford? Same as the shirt's size?

    It's so hard to decide without the chance of trying. Measurements from online is inconsistent making decision tougher.

    Would anyone be so kind as to list the SS14 Bedfords for me please?

    So far I've only seen olive ripstop and floral for sale.

    Thanks.

    From reading this forum, I came to the conclusion that EG jackets fit slim/TTS. Baker seems to be most slim, and Bedford is more relaxed. Someone correct me if I'm wrong?

    When will SS14 Bedford's drop, anyone know?

    ime from slimmest to roomiest (obviously more jackets in collection but this is standard for most seasons) andover<<baker<<truman<<bedford toast, bureau has foulard and navy batik buckets, stateside only seen foulard at mohawk lastly after careful review decided foulard color tones are a bit too bright for my taste in suits, also print looks better from a distance but only so-so up close, now have to confirm is black batik pants exist as I cant do shorts or manpris and cheers to mbaum for some solid fb

    I size up for the Baker.

    I wear Large in Bedford - XL in Baker.

    I also have a FW 2013 wool Bedford in Medium... So ultimately it's best if you try it on or know your measurements.

    fw is usually cut roomier than ss across the board for jackets to allow for more layering
    then again this is eg we're talking about and some seasons are just inconsistent in sizing

    Thanks for all the inputs.

    I'm typically a XS in all EG. When I compare the shirt & jacket (Baker & Bedford) measurements in XS, the chest is way too small. But, seeing those online models with the same size as me being able to fit into XS and able to fully button-up in both the Baker & Bedford, makes it even more puzzling in term of sizing. Is jacket cut differently from shirt?

    As it's an online overseas purchase, exchange is out of the equation for me. Of course I want the fit to be spot on without going to the tailor for alteration. But, may be the safe way out is to size up & have it altered if necessary. It's really a pain with no chance of trying.

    you mention shirt & jacket yet you only mention comparing the baker to the bedford, which are both jackets, so im a bit confused, but the baker has a more strait cut and the bedford has more of the tipical eg A cut, sleeves are usually roomier on the bedford and both will have questionable sleeve length in size xs, if you're over 5'9" or have long arms you might be better off with a small

    Pardon me for not being clear enough. I was comparing shirt (Work & Western) & jacket (Baker & Bedford) measurements.

    The EG XS shirt (p2p is about 49-50cm) is already pretty fitting. So, I was wondering if the online fit pics model (about the same build as me) can fit in nicely, then so can I. But, if I look at the measurements, I have doubts.

    I do not know my true chest measurement. I'm only 5'6ish. May be a XS would work? Btw, I'm leaning toward Baker.

    if the xs shirt you have is tight then definitely go with a small in the baker or bedford
    the shirts are just cut roomier in the chest for whatever reason

    It's not tight but slim fitting, which I like. Not the loose or relax fit which people envisage EG to be.

    xs blazer type jacket will fit slimmer in the chest than xs shirt, you can take that to the bank

    ^ Roger. That's the decision I must make. S would be a safer bet.
