    Super stoked to see all the makeups of the Heirloom cardigan. Crossing my fingers for something camel/tobacco colored.

    Also, hoping to lock in my sizing for t-shirts and henleys.

    For those of you who can't attend, I'll try to take a bunch of awesome photos.

    Mike, any chance of getting a Boston trunk show going? I'm getting super bummed about missing the heirloom pre-order since I didn't get my size figured out last season and think I'm going to be in the middle of two sizes.

    Same here - for me, stretching by hand only works for 2 minutes

    maybe I should try soaking and then stretching... or also vote to add a 2-3cm length.

    Is it better if anything to err on the side of having to have the heirloom be slightly big? I'm between probably a 38-40, my ep shirts are medium.

    I vote yes.
    The beautiful part of the heirloom is it's a chunky sweater. As such, a slightly larger fit is perfect for this particular item. I'm in between 38-40 but went with 40 on this and I'm very pleased with the fit.

    Edit: I posted this mediocre iphone pic on st patty's day if your interested in how a 40 sits on a 5'9" 165lb guy.

    Cotton Cashmere Driggs. Could easily be my top EP item this year. I have worn the shit out of these and the grey ones this winter (oh wait, is it Spring now - can't tell because it's snowing)

    How did you size the Driggs? Do they work for guys who wear Rudy?

    Yes! Would definitely be into a "Long" version. Love this sweater, but for me, the 38/M Heirloom was a bit too short for my frame, to my liking (while also keeping a more snug fit which I prefer).

    ETA - Mike, was reading through the thread, and maybe I missed it:

    Heirloom vs. Hooded Heirloom Sizing - same shape, fit, length etc?

    @avsmusic1 That fit looks really good. I'm about and inch taller than you and about 8 more lbs, so I think the 40 would work very well. Thanks for the fit pic!

    Don't want to hijack this into an Heirloom sizing thread, but if I found the EPLA shirts in small a bit small (and no experience in EPNY shirts) what would you suggest for sizing-wise in the Heirloom? I'm 5'8" and 150-155 lbs. Thanks!

    For what it's worth, I'm 5'8" 150Ibs and a solid 38, and wear M in EPNY and size up to L in EPLA. I was on the earlier run of Heirlooms and went with the M. It was uncomfortably tight fitting and couldn't wear anything but a t-shirt underneath. If I were to order again, I'd definitely go with a Large.

    I also wear EPNY M, size up to EPLA L (I am 6' tall, 168 pounds, skinnier guy). And as noted above for Heirloom, thought the M/38 chest fit was great, but arms and body length was a bit short for my taste.

    Also I believe Mike recently said the newest run of EPLA shirts will have more consistent sizing to EPNY....

    No prob - sounds like the 40 would be perfect for you.
