EG is a lot broader than just Americana these days - FW14 had several British inspired pieces, and SS15 was a very colonial look in many ways. I'm not sure how I'd describe the influences behind FW15. Whilst I still like the odd piece Nigel Cabourn makes, the brand has moved a long way down the collabs to make money route - cheap jackets for Sportsdirect (almost 100% synthetic too .
Worked - thanks
I can't say I've noticed anymore odd thread ends on EG than any other brand, and never had any that affect the structural integrity of the jacket. I've had them on most Nigel Cabourn pieces, and just snipped them with nail scissors. EG's construction quality has always seemed pretty much in line with other brands at a similar price point with nice details such as the split ring buttons.
Any current FWRD codes for sale use?
Interesting - I didn't get that impression from the 'seasonfulness' even taking into account antipodean posters. Fall's low showing surprises me.
The better looking twin brother?
Agreed.Visvim and Kapital tend to introduce Japanese style into some of their pieces, but a lot of the Japanese designers are pretty faithful to Americana.Much of EG is very safe -if you're not comfortable with the wilder patterns, plain fatigues and a solid jacket isn't going to stand out from the crowd.
A little extra length in the toe-box isn't a problem, providing the flex point isn't too far back. You might want to consider the larger size with a footbed?
I'll get saving
Very fall/winter biased. More posters posting fits in fall/winter? More members posting, so more thumbs in fall/winter? Summer fits are hard to make interesting? All three?
