Damn well I'll let you guys know later today, I'm gonna stop by.

Speaking of SF stockists though, is there anything other than Bastille in the city that carries EG? Bastille has a decent selection but only S or M, which is a huge bummer.

Love those pictures. There is also an EG spread in the current issue of HUGE which is pretty good (all styled by Daiki). I didn't pick up a copy, but will post a link if I see scans show up online somewhere.

Anyone know who else stocks the fisherman cap from this season? So far I've only seen Context carrying it.

The blue cordlane version looks nice. Unavailable though. ;/

Bloomingdale's in SF def has some EG, though not a ton. A few shorts, a few shirts, a jacket or two... They did get the khaki shooting jacket and the peacock print shorts, which surprised me a little. Their buys are always pretty conservative, but I heard they've got a new buyer. As for stockists in SF besides Bastille, there's MAC (by far the best selection in SF) and Indsutrie Denim.

Alright guys here's the much needed San Francisco EG info post

MAC: Cotton items/ natural fibers only, probably the worst buy of the bunch. I think this is ridiculous, as EG as a brand uses a heavy amount of synthetics which tend to be much preferred to me as opposed to wrinkly shrinking prone fabrics. Paisley shirts, bedfords, scarves and i think an andover blazer but as far as I know no real outerwear. Nice guys over the phone though, I'd probably have to check it out in person to decide.

Bastille: Only small and medium, average buy. They have the angler shirt which is one of the few pieces I wanted, but alas only in smaller sizes. They also have that nice hooded vest pictured above, cordlane bedfords, and a lotta shirts and pants. The store staff was receptive to any ideas or suggestions for a better EG buy. I strongly suggested getting large, hopefully something will come of it.

Bloomingdales: Best sizing runs (s-l), best buy of the group. Talked with various staff there when I came in and they were all super helpful and willing to source items or hit up nepenthes for more stock. I'm not 100% but I think some of the items had small markups from EG retail. Kinda disappointing considering Nepenthes does free ship no tax outside of NYC. Crazy story, so I guess Angelo from EG came in with his girlfriend yesterday maybe 30 min before I was in the store. I would've for sure picked up something if I could shoot the shit with him for a bit, kinda bummed.
Polka Dotted baker in blue and white- Really, really nice. A little on the thin side for $450 and even with 20% off was a little too much in my mind but the shape and everything was great
Linen bedford in dark blue- Pretty decent, but the fabric was fairly uncomfortable (ie not soft, felt like a poly blend). I know linen is better in heat but this would be pretty uncomfortable with a t-shirt on underneath
Cotton jersey bedford in light grey- Piece looked awesome, but the fit was pretty unflattering. I have a pretty defined v-shape torso, and there was something about it that made it look extremely cheap on me. The drape was pretty poor and the look was pretty unspectacular, but for some reason there is a ton of charm with a sweatshirt jersey blazer and I would probably still pick one up given the opportunity.
Shooting Jacket in Khaki Oxford- Very cool jacket. Faux suede was nice, I appreciate that the jacket can still be machine washed. Fit was actually extremely disappointing. Very short in the body. I wear a large in everything EG, and tried this on in a large. It cut like at my belt, almost too short at 6'2". I wanted to try an XL to see how the fit varied but feel like the pattern was a little off on this model. Would benefit from a little length. The khaki was nice, but I think I would've preferred something darker.
Cordlane bomber- Nice, but for like $400 and being completely unlined there are some nicer options out there. I know the white buttons add to part of the EG spring vibe this season, but I would've much preferred dark navy or horn colored buttons to go with the cordlane stuff.
Shawl Collar fairisle vest I think thats what I saw, don't remember too much as I was mainly looking for outerwear. The fairisle jersey knit stuff this season is very soft to the touch and the pattern is great.
Polka Dot club collared shirt Great shirt, nice thin fabric.
Peacock shorts- Very cool in person, didn't try any of the shirts or shorts on as I only like EG outerwear but the cut was nice, longer inseam with a slimmer leg.
Various plaid shirts- Again, wasn't looking for shirts so i didn't notice anything in particular that stood out to me, but the selection was decent.

Overall, a good buy. I will keep my eye on the polka-dotted bedford and the linen bedford assuming they hit sales. I think bloomies friends and family 20% off is still going on for another day or two, which is a good way to get some EG on discount before sale season.

Agree, and they are so cool... It's funny that I've think a couple of time to keep mine out of the storage box and put it on again smile.gif

Thanks for the write up. I went to both MAC and Bloomies over the last month and saw their buys for EG but just didn't see anything that I liked. I didn't know Bastille and Industrie Denim were carrying EG. That's great news since Barneys doesn't carry it anymore, and American Rag closed a couple years ago. The only thing I ended picking up this season is the Indigo Denim work shirt, which I got directly from Nepenthes. It's really comfortable and light weight, and looks great. I just had to get it shortened about 2 inches since the workshirts are always so long now.

Does anyone have a working email address for Mohawk? The one I tried to use (info@mohawk...) bounced my email.
