So I got a few Fall items today and have to say, I'm a little bummed. I received the field shirt in brushed wool twill and the navy corduroy 3 pocket jacket.

First and foremost, they're gorgeous pieces of clothing. But, the measurements are off from what EK's website has them as.
The field shirt in medium measures 22" in the chest, 18" in the shoulder, and then 24" in the sleeve. So that's .25" off in the chest, .75" in the shoulder, and a whole 1" in the sleeve length. And to be honest, the first two measurements I am good with, but the sleeve is rather sucky (I'm 6'3").
The 3 pocket jacket in medium measures 21.75" in the chest, 18.5" in the shoulder, and again, 24" for sleeve length (Ek's website has it at chest-21.75", shoulder-19", sleeve length-24.75"). The jacket fits me great in the body (similar to the field shirt) but the sleeve is awful. It also doesn't help that the sleeve tapers quite a bit (unlike the field shirt) and so it really pulls when extending my arms.

I'll definitely be returning the corduroy jacket and I am a bit torn on the field shirt. Again, it fits great in the body (chest and shoulder) but the sleeve could be a bit longer (I'd prefer closer to 25"). I'm just not sure if the body will then be too big if I size up to a large.

i'm 6'4” and 185, and the shirts and three-pocket jackets in Large fit me pretty much perfectly, taking into account that they’re roomy cuts.

You're pretty close to me in size. I'm 6'3" and 170. Some brands can be hard as I'm rather tall and skinny.

Yea, I can take a few pics! (My corduroy jacket fits very similar to the moleskin jacket on the model on Glasswing's website)

@winston86dit it seems to me you could go up a size without problem.
I have the same prob for EK - 6’1, 170lbs - M or L? The chest measurements are so big...

Three-pocket in L
That looks perfect! Unfortunately for me, the navy cord 3 pocket is sold out everywhere now.

@winston86dit sorry to hear about that! IMO twill field shirt looks great as is, but the sleeves are noticeably short on the 3 pocket.
Thanks man. Yea, I'm thinking the field shirt will still work out and I'll just have to take the loss on the 3 pocket.

For what it's worth, the measurements on Neighbor seem to be closer to actual. Also, for the 4 pocket pants, I found that the waist measures .5 inch less than EK's website as well.

Have you tried calling one of the Dover Streets? They don't provide much online information about their stock, but the NYC store usually has a pretty wide selection from each EK collection.

Measurements really vary how you measure maybe up to an inch so it’s best to just go off previous experience so check out his studio when u get a chance or a stockist. Otherwise I’d suggest buying two sizes and returning one.

Try a large on the field shirt to see how it fits despite the chest measurement bc numbers are one thing, trying it on is a whole another thing.

Feel like you just have long arms so sizing up may not help but still better to know than not. And yeah the 3p is a no go on your build haha. Def don’t try the bellow either since the sleeves are even shorter.

also dsmla and dsmny have the same ek buys. I confirmed. No navy cord 3p
