    Those ebay items are older Post Overalls pieces and have been relists for months. IMHO The quality is higher than EG, just cleaner and more detailed, in some cases better buttons, gussets, bar tacking. The fit of their older pieces is awkward. Their new pieces are more fitted but still generously cut in the tradition of workwear. Furthermore, for me, I have longer arms than what would normally characterize a size small. I found a chambray shirt that I thought I would try and ordered directly from Katsuo. Though the chest and length were right, the sleeves were too short and would definitely shrink in a wash. I could have bought larger and had it tailored but I didn't really feel like doing so at the time. Just go by the measurements.

    Katsuo is a very nice person to deal with. He's very humble and he actually phoned me after I emailed multiple times. He's very accommodating. It's my one real frustration that I cannot find a ready to wear piece from PO that fits. The pants/jeans, however, are what I am dying to try.

    Top notch quality i'd say. lower prices and better designs than eg if you ask me. the sizes are quite large though.

    If you're located in the States, and you wanted something of theirs pretty badly, I would urge you to email them. If he has the piece in the size you're looking for, it's much cheaper than ordering proxy.

    can anyone tell me how post o'alls compares in fit to EG/WWM?

    im a standard 36 chest and wear a small in every single brand except eg/wwm. i was XS in all past EG/WWM seasons but seem to need to size up to S this current season since everything is slimmer and less boxy, plus arms are shorter

    wondering if post o'alls is cut similarly boxy or if they are more tts?

    I've been tempted to buy a shirt but the sleeves are too short for me.

    I just picked up a lane cord mattalini jacket, and I swear it's my favorite item I own. The detailing is retarded (the good retarded).

    Yup, I have one of the light weight Mattalini jackets and i love it. Been getting a lot of wear lately. I only wish the sleeves were a little longer, but I'm 6'3 so that's not exactly uncommon.

    happy to see a thread about these guys. i have a pair of the floral shorts from S/S2011 and i get compliments on them every day i wear them. the fabric is amazing, the fit is amazing, and the detailing is... amazing. i really have no complaints about them other than the fact that i only have one pair

    Yup, I am 6'2+ and have come to the same conclusion about the short arms. I need around 26" to not look ridiculous. If I fit Post O'alls to arm size, they are way too loose. I cannot roll. It just kills me tho because they are nice pieces.

    You gotta roll. I forgive them for the short sleeves and roll 'em. Favorite shirts.

    Tried on some pieces last weekend in Present London, you're right on the detailing and the short sleeves. Luckily for me I'm only 5"11 and they seem to fit just right to my wrist. Would like to see more imagery of products released from them, but suppose you can't have it all ...
