    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Pretty sure all those brands have ridiculously short sleeves too, that's been my experience with EG at least. Shoulders are on the narrow side but I feel like this can be somewhat compensated by sizing up, the stuff is not meant to be worn fitted anyway. ALways thought lumping EG together with the other workwear shit was doing the label a disservice, you can do so much more with their stuff.

    I have never seen any evidence that any of the brands I just talked about would ever fit me at all.

    see, my problem with eg sizing is that if you size up the chest/waist is just huge -- i think it really looks bed on people with narrow shoulders and not a huge drop, ie: the japanese.

    That depends on how you style it though, if you pair it with looser fitting stuff / lots of layers I can't see it being that much of a problem.


    I'd cross The Soloist off the list though, no hope there

    synthese: yea I think you're pretty similar sized to me? and i can't wear nonnative. too short. i can wear some WM, although I've never been a fan. you should look at the shit habitant in selling, he has lots of good stuff.

    I have a M in the EG andover is serge wool from this last year and I think I'm going to have to sell it because the shoulders are really big. Not like what you guys are talking about at all.

    How does the Soloist fit? I have my eye on a shirt.

    My EG bedford had a really weird cut. Narrow shoulders, very high armholes, small chest, shortish sleeves and super big at the waist. The skirting at the back looked ridiculous. Literally stood out 5 inches like a tail from my back. Still was no room to layer in the upper shoulder chest area. Made for middle age stumpy japanese men.

    Saw this, seems kinda interesting not to sure how much I like the back part, if you were looking into something similar to that EG.

    Going through style, brand, and self-awareness evolution is the second best part of being "into" fashion/style.

    The first? The hunt for the clothes.

    nah, one sat on ebay @ $200 bin for weeks before someone picked it up.

    either way though, doesn't matter to me.

    Number (N)ine works. I think we are similar in size (except your small feet) and Sz 4/5 fit me in N(N). Like sipang said, forget the soloist (unfortunately )

    Those couple of WM pieces he's got are super tempting.

    Which EGs are these that have narrower shoulders and bigger chest? Sounds like what I'm looking for. All the measurements I've seen seem to point to the opposite.

    Chest usually fits larger than the measurements suggest, opposite for the shoulders. An Andover might work for Synth, but the Bedford is going to look terrible. I could not even squeeze into the large canvas bedford, but the waist was huge.
