In my opinion, the sunforger just wears so well. It does start to look "worn it" but it does not impact the durability of the fabric at all. I've been using the briefcase for 2 years, everyday - and it is fine.
this probably isn't the proper channel, but i am really trying to get my hands on a size xl cruiser jacket - from any season, any fabric... olive whipcord would be preferred, but i'd entertain any. let me know! for some reason, i am just lusting after that jacket for the colder months coming up.
The messy bartacks kill it for me. I've always loved EG because he used proper bartacks and they were always subtle. Those double 'x' style bartacks are cool, but make it look to Affliction brostyle for my liking.
I know I do EG different than most here. EG to me is just easy to wear stuff for everyday things. I've never got into the more artistic side of the brand, but I love their everyday stuff.

I think the tie looks good man. Nothing wrong with keeping the same color palette, you could change it up with your pants - but me, I'd probably wear olive cords or something with that. Maybe I'm too uniformed though with my EG looks :P
