I didn't think the McKinlays were going to go on sale so I bought them at full price . Is everything you received from Post O'alls online / on sale?
I'm not really a fan of the shoes that your wearing in your fit either. The perfectly rolled sleeves too is also a little too clean in my opinion for an E.G. outfit. I personally think it looks better when it has a more relaxed appearance (e.g. sloppily rolled sleeves, wrinkled, ya know, the good stuff).
You can buy a pair of EG Workaday fatigues on sale and get them tapered to your liking as an alternative. The baggy fit of the Workaday fatigues isn't for everyone (myself included) so I have opted to taper both pairs I own, however the fabrics are always nice and feature good construction so its worth looking in to. 
I have the Grey Reversed Sateen Utility Jacket - it's a nice color. Let me know what you think of them.   FWIW: Nepenthes is going to start taking phone orders on Monday for the Vans collab and I think since they're very similar to last year they won't sell out extremely quickly. Hold tight non-New Yorkians and you'll get a pair.
Mohawk General Store sale is live online and EG and EG Workaday fatigues are both on sale.
Workday fatigues are best described as having a "full" fit through the leg. Which essentially means from your butt down it doesn't taper. The mainline fatigue pants have a more modern straight fit.    You can view the fit of mainline fatigues here: http://gentrynyc.com/collections/engineered-garments/products/eg-ripstop-fatigue-pant   compared to Workday here: http://gentrynyc.com/collections/engineered-garments-workaday/products/eg-workaday-fatigue-pant   I have...
If anyone who isn't getting the white pair of Vans and lives in NYC wants to pick them up for me for a little extra $$ PM me.
I've had my Original Thin Fit jeans for about 20 months now. They've held up pretty well, I had a pretty significant crotch blow out during the winter when I was frolicking in the snow. I had my seamstress repair it, and they've done fine since then, but the crotch does have considerably more wear than the other parts of the jeans. They have faded very nicely over the months, I have worn them pretty consistently and washed them 4-5 times now. The jeans are quite slim...
Any plans for another 15% off Style Forum discount? Got my eye on some McKinleys and Post O'alls. My mind is telling me yes but my wallet is telling me no, ya feel?
Orslow, The Real McCoys, Yaeca, anything made by Nepenthes brands, Warehouse, Kapital, Blue Blue Japan, Beams Plus, Sassafras, MHL Margaret Howell It really depends what kind of look you are going for. Do you want to look preppy / laid back / work wear inspired / super Japanese etc. Engineered Garments is a pretty versatile brand which is why it is so desirable. Personally, I love Engineered Garments, Orslow, Post Overalls, The Real McCoys, and Beams Plus.
