Timpoblete and other EG experts:

What is EG Intermediates? The description on the Nepenthes blog just says made in the same factories but with a different "mindset." Is there a price/quality difference, or simply a less "engineered" look? The shirts all look very simple -- digging the print that's up on the site right now.

I understand the other sublabels -- workaday, s2w8, needles, but Intermediates is a new one for me.

Don't have an exact definition for the Intermediates line, but it's a line for in-between seasons, usually closer to the end of the season, at least after the first or second shipments go out. The designs usually have fewer details and lets them try out certain fabrics and combinations that might be used in future seasons. It's also a place they can use fabrics that don't fit with the current season.

First of all, EG is my favorite brand and I have spent thousands in SS items this season (vest, trousers, shirts, cruiser jacket, landsdown jacket, shorts and so on) and I admire the work of Daiki.
 

Juts bought the SS2012 military green fatigue shorts in reversed sateen, wonderful fabric and amazing details.

They are stated XL, but from what I see they are XXL, I feel them too much wide (compared of what the picture on the net show....) so I think is better to buy a size under.
The fatigue long trouser, instead are very fine, the size stated is correct.

 

The problem with EG (that for me in Italy is possible to buy only online) is that what you see online like shops stylings and so on, is really different from what the fit are when you try the clothes.

 

Take the tab collar floral shirt.

I am a L, the large tab collar of last winter fit me perfectly. I buy the Tab collar floral for the SS ad the L was too tight, but very tight.

I upsize to XL... and is very very large :(
The XL is about two size more than the L.... its' incredible ... I can't believe the pattern maker make those error.

Another example is the Douglas, in the picture you'll see in the net, some shop present a fit like a shirt, others like an overshirt... you expect to buy a size correct to your fit... and I buy a L.

It was so strange: not a shirt, not an overshirt.

So send it back and buy a XL: incredibly large!!! Wide, oversized.... is in the hanger and I can't wear. I'm tired to spend money of shipments to send back... so 250€ that I have throw away.

Landsdown jacket.

The same: L very tight, XL... totally deformed: too long sleeve, too wide chest.. I don't know. Why they upsize two sizes from L to XL?

Definitely, is better to try any EG before to buy it, because they are not very easy to wear if you base your purchase on what you see in catalogs, pictures and so on.
For sure I will not buy more EG if I can't try it before!

I feel your pain, Mr. S-NMBR.

Luckily, I went to the Nepenthes Shop in Manhattan last month (I am from Toronto) and tried on as many EG items there as possible. this SS season, so far, I bought

2 x Porter Jackets
Knit vest
Peacock Shorts
2 x Trail Vests

Unfortunately, none of the jackets work on my body...

Thank you oven1969.
 

I think you've bought good pieces, especially the Peacock Shorts, probably one of the best item this season.

About jackets, I'm very sorry for you :-(

i think timpoblete is pretty much on the money. i asked leo at nepenthes a couple weeks ago, and he explained that Intermediates is the stuff that Daiki wants to design/prototype that doesn't fit coherently into his seasonal collections. obviously it's produced in much smaller quantities and for quicker turnaround than a collection. the prints they had in store were fantastic.

Selling my ss12 fatigues in green size 32. Looking for a little fuller cut. Might go with the size S workaday fatigues and see how they turn out.
post #734 of 1041
Damn I love EG, outside of various kops my money will probably be strictly with EG outerwear. I have 4 jackets from EG and they are all in constant rotation. I really want to try their pants out. How do the workaday fatigues fit? What size should I get if I am normally a 33ish?

I'm a 33 these days and a medium fits me fine. You have the tabs to cinch them in if they're a bit large to start but they will shrink, so wash them first before you have them hemmed.
