    I love coming back to this thread after a long time and seeing the looks pile up. It's always exciting as well as seeing entries from some of the longer standing members of the forum too.

    Straight out of the look book (guilty as charged) but simply too good to resist.

    @Dino19 I'd go true to size mate. It's fully adjustable if you wish for a more structured fit.

    Looking great @Knight . You pull off some of the most amazing looks.

    This might be better served in the 2013 S/S thread, but Steven Alan is having a sample sale with a few EG items (plus some Garbstore and other aesthetically similar stuff).

    ^ Completely agree. That fit with the waders looks stellar. One of my favorites from you! You've got to post more often [​IMG]

    Looking for a bedford in grey herringbone, but I'm confused about the models! I don't know anything about EG, so hope some of you experts can help :)

    I found this on yahoo japan, but is it an older model or something? The photos are really awful, but some details look different from other bedfords. Like the stitching on the front, right? Length is measured as 75cm (~29,5"), which seems long for a small.
    Most herringbone bedfords I've found are charcoal, are there any good models in this lighter herringbone?

    I got outbid on this http://page5.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e154015215 which might've fit the bill. This one is semi-lined unlike the one above. So confusing.

    Stitching is standard – they've either always been like that or at least for a long while.

    EG's sizing is inconsistent. Not drastically, but maybe that makes it worse because you're always between sizes with them. It's totally possible that season the S fit more like a M. I'd go off the shoulder measure if you can.

    Mike you're always looking sharp mate and Dockers the workaday gear rocks. I'd love a pair of those 41 Khakis for myself too.

    Wanted to try out a suggestion @mbaum gave in the WAYWT thread a few weeks back regarding my rough and tumble long shirt:

    Thoughts? Suggestions? Had a hard time figuring out what shoes to wear, everything seemed either too formal or too informal.

    I think this looks really good. For sure, the top combo - knit and R&T is absolutely spot on and looks amazing.

    I think the HP fatigues work well - I thought so based on the lookbook combo of similar fabrics in pic 19, where the model wears this knit with HB Knickers (Pics 23 and 24 are also good inspirations). I think, a little more contrast can work just as well - Dark blue fatigues, black or even olive perhaps?

    If you stay all gray, I might choose a more rugged black derby/ blucher - plain or winged - or a more rugged boot. Alternative non-suede colors can include shell #8 or dark brown
    However, blue or gray tones would be my choice for casual shoes that would work very well in the fit with the HB fatigues - like NB (My favorites - take that, haters) or Converse or Vans.

    Nice stuff. That knit ...
