    Could someone comment on the sizing of the 19th c. button down? I normally wear a size Medium in button-downs (40" chest, 15.5, etc.), but based on the measurements posted on Context, I would take an XS. Is this possible? Are they really cut that big?
    Thanks in advance.


    Medium fits a 15.5 neck. The body is pretty full cut, but if you size down to an XS I imagine the shoulders and sleeves would be tiny. Shoulders on the 19th bd are narrow as it is.

    More NT parka pictures. [​IMG] [​IMG]
    What is the color of the one in the first photo? Is it the same as the light blue-looking one that is on top of the last photo?

    Might be wrong but from all the pics I've seen so far the color looks like a light, washed-out, mint green. Looks like the same color on both pics.

    I think they probably are the same color just under different lighting

    Not too worried about it. I tried it on once and the fit was, well, special to say the least. More like a poncho (standard fit on the shoulders, but like a tent towards the bottom). Another of those mysteries of EG fitting I reckon.

    EG X McNairy on ACL. I like the 5 eye Chukka.

    http://www.acontinuouslean.com/2010/...am/#more-13332


    This was bound to happen, as McNairy has collaborated with everyone on the Americana scene. It was just a matter of time.

    I read about a EG x Gitman project somewhere. Is this on or..?

    i kind of agree i think the mark mcnairy shoes are really bad. do any of you own a pair? the leather quality is horrible. its flimsy and cheap. what makes it the worst for me is i think the shoes look great, so i want to buy them. sadly though, i was let down a few months into my investment.

    Thanks for the report. I'd be curious to see pictures of how the leather looks on your worn pair if you happen to have any.

    Why didn't EG bring their Tricker's collaboration to Europe or the US? I recently picked up a great pair of Tricker's when they had their sale between Christmas and NYE and couldn't be happier with the quality. Tricker's seems to much better fitting to EG than overhyped McNairy.

    no idea, i think trickers are a fantastic shoe too. great leather, good quality, a bit of heft and heaviness to them too. mark mcnairy's are so light i feel like they are ninja shoes.
