You can fix the sleeve -- just find an old pair of khakis, cut off a 1" strip and have a tailor sew it on to the sleeve opening...My Ripstop patchwork Bedford arrived yesterday. I think that's the first time I'm really disappointed by EG item.
On one hand the colour and fabric/texture combo looks SO MUCH BETTER than my 6.5 flat twill navy patchwork Bedford - but it's only personal preference.
But on another - the shoulder construction seem to be kinda stiffer so it fits rather off, definetely not in a relaxed summer-ish way. I've also noticed 2 defects on ripstop fabric - something which looks like "knots" - if this was some kind of slubby fabric this would be acceptable, but having 2 very visible knots on one arm kinda sucks.
To finish this off, right sleeve is about an inch shorter than left one, wtf.
Seriously, bummer. One thing about EG is that I have never had any quality issues, which i have used to justify their high MSRP...
