    How's the sizing of the BDU shirt? I'm a S in shirt & Bedford.

    Thinking of getting the Dungaree piece.

    I just picked up an olive BDU shirt and I got my normal size without having to size up. My sizing is kind of right on the border between L and XL, and I got L. It's not tight on me with a work shirt under, but it's not really a slouchy fit either.

    Thanks @ Cole87.

    I was previously an XS but wearing mostly S now. I still can wear my XS outer wear & shirt, but shirt in S is more comfy for me now.

    As usual, online measurements are all over the place. XS's measurements seem big which confuse & hinder my decision.

    I went TTS on the fw BDU and would not change a thing. M across, shirts are sometimes short but BDU length was fine.

    No problem. I'll measure mine when I get home tonight and let you know if Context's measurements are accurate, if that helps. I got mine from Notre in Chicago, but they don't have their EG online yet for measurements. I'm sure you could call them and they'd measure it for you also. They have a 10% Styleforum discount also, but they only have olive.

    What blazer is cut the longest? I'm nearly 6'4 and have pretty long arms, have problems finding jackets that don't have incredibly short sleeves and looking to get an EG blazer

    If you poke around the Nepenthes Japanese online shop, they have a wide variety of Bedfords, Bakers, and Andovers. I find they have accurate measurements. The lengths vary among the various styles and fabrics, but they are all within 1-2 cms of each other. There doesn't seem to be a particular style that is consistently longer this season. I'd avoid the Loiter, if you are worried about length. That is a bit shorter.

    EG isn't the most friendly brand for taller guys, but there are a few taller guys on here that pull it off well. You just have to be comfortable with a slightly cropped look.

    This is not meant to be inflammatory but can someone explain engineered garments to me? I've not scrutinized the apparel much but from what I've seen, it mostly appears to be oversized sloppily fitting woolen garments reminiscent of the 19th century miner/hobo outfits. What is the appeal? And most importantly, do chicks dig it?

    I would like to meet the early 19th Miners and such that dressed in EG ha ha

    Also since when do guys dress to impress girls ? Lets be honest. Its only other dudes that brand check what you are wearing. Girls are happy as long as you are neat, clean and smell good !

    Thanks @ Cole87, NXNW & thekunk07

    @Cole87 , 10% off the current season is quite a good deal. Rock it well.

    It's easy to decide if the measurements are accurate. As with EG, different fabrics are cut slightly differently, though not too much. But, it matters to me to get the get fit. Plus, I do not have the luxury of trying before buying & I wanna avoid having to return, which means may have to spend 3x on shipping & it can be quite substantial for me, being on the other side of the world.

    Thus, I hope to get it right at the first go with the information from the community here.
