Poor Mr Eaves is missing out on Mrs Eaves' Serifs.

:-\
I liked Mrs Eaves when it was just Mrs Eaves.
Couldn't they just fix the spacing instead of adding more stuff?

http://The Missus says: "The distinctly loose-fitting letter spacing of Mrs Eaves was applied also to the Sans version." I read that she is of the opinion that it's not a bug, it's a feature.

Well look at it yourself, and think about whether it's only loose, or if it's just not very good. I know what I think.
(Not that I can space better, but you know.)

(Disclaimer: I don't have Mrs Eaves – this is from a PDF sent to me by someone who does, and who I trust didn't mess with the metrics.)

@altaira: I don't have it either. But Myfonts confirms your observation. It is in the font:

Interestingly, the problem doesn't exist in Mrs. Eaves XL:

I am not sure that class kerning works in MyFonts rendering, it could be just an absence of kerning ...

Now there are two versions of a sans serif Baskerville:
This one and the one by Frantisek Storm:

Totally different though…

It would be pretty interesting to see the typeface in use in a long text. Is there a place we can get it? It's hard to appreciate the spacing or kerning with “Emigre typetease” or by the image they show on their website.

If you buy Emigre fonts they’re pretty good about sending printed specimens a few weeks after a big release.
