(Nice comeback!) Guilty of eggheadery! No, I think we're on the same page here. I would NOT advocate shortening the tails or adding to the gussets. I meant to say, somewhat inelegantly, that Daiki's clothes fit a certain way because he draws from a diverse set of influences, and the result is not slapdash or fashion-driven. "Thoughtful" is an excellent way to describe his designs. And you are absolutely right about the classic nature. I don't wear skinny jeans (heck, I'm 42!) but I do wear EG pieces with more "traditional" clothes (BB OCBDs under coats and with EG pants etc)...which I think is the reason EG continues to make their "Workday" line. Unfortunately I work right around the corner from the Nepenthes store, so I probably won't buy from Drinkwater's, but your contributions here are much appreciated and your customer service looks to be superb. Cheers, Peter
