    Quick sizing question: if I'm a large in the wool andover, would I also be a large in the engineer jacket? My chest is 42" for reference. I seem to remember someone saying that the andover fit differently than other eg jackets. Any help is appreciated

    ^You'd probably need a Medium in the Engineer. I wear a Large in the Andover and a Medium in the Engineer, for reference.

    you definitely need a Large. I am a 39/40" chest and have a Medium Engineer jacket and it is tight already.

    i finally found a yellow/green EG madras in XS on sale on a japanese site and got it proxied. even on "sale" it cost a lot due to the weak dollar. :( does anyone else think that the high last button makes it odd to wear EG shirts untucked? it could also be the combination of rounded front hem and a really light fabric that moves around easily. it looks too blousey untucked, but i really love the colorway. http://www.stuartandwright.com/Engineered_Garments_Yellow_Madras_19th_Century_Button_Down_1619.html

    Think a few people have said it (including myself), but a good tailor can add another button hole and shorten the shirt a bit. I did it with the green plaid 19th century from last year and it looks great.

    I'm thinking of getting a bedford jacket from SS11. I've never tried one of them on so I'm unsure about sizing. I'm a size S in both APC and Our Legacy. Which size in the bedford jacket should I go for?

    S or XS depending on how you want it to fit. Probably XS though...

    I've actually read through this whole thread and people seem to differ in opinion about this seasons sizing. I'm 5ft 9in and weigh 150 lbs, which size in the bedford would you recommend?

    @afan, small. Spring summer bedfords tend to be on the bigger size than fall winter bedfords, however this is mostly because they are unlined.
