post #76 of 1041
i fail to see how anything camo represents the EG brand in a good way, camo has been done to death by designer & highstreet brands for years & in any case it should be confined to the forces for real men to wear smile.gif

I think there are a few nice items that i will buy, however i'm not fond of the plaids in browns & yellows. Secondly the price increases are not good in the current climate & will only add to the amount of stock that will end up in the sales come june/july.

I think camo is something that is out of any kind of fashion statement. A sort of staple.


EG, brings lot of his inspiration from military... and for me is natural that for summer the camo will be add in the collection, EG make a very clean and simple interpretation of camouflage.
 

My opinion is that camo is to intend like any other fabric pattern (polka dot, checks, stripes) and EG for sure treat camo this way.

I think to add camo and to use like other fabric patterns is a perfect way to wear camo mixed with other fabrics.


So, I am happy to have camo in EG for S/S cause it will be a good substitution of my vintage camo items, that are not very updated in fit and are not so easy to wear (especially tops and jackets).

yes can see your way of thinking, but in my opinion camo rarely looks good. light & faded maybe if your under 25 smile.gif

Of course, the more younger you are, the better camo print will suit you.

 

By the way, I don't think is all a matter of age.

I'm 46 and I wear often camo items, but it depend on how and "how much" you wear, and of course the context you are wearing. I'm a designer and of course for me is more easy to wear a camo jacket or coat, because is more accepted probably when I'm work with my customer... And also because Sometimes I present camo inspired items in my work.

 

I unerstand that is not the same for all, off course.

So, in the way EG is intending camo print (and I see they will use with moderation) I think it will be interesting, because is the combination with other fabrics that made it so new.

 

Sorry for my bad english!

Amazing.

 

Golden Bear is wonderful and the new prints made the scarves very useful with denim and military style trousers.

 

Thank you Timpo.

is that shooting jacket a new piece for this season? kind of looking forward to seeing what it's like in fw fabrics next season.
post #83 of 1041
The shooting jacket reminds me of the guy(half his face covered with mask) from Boardwalk Empire. So something he would wear.

I paid a visit to the Nepenthes store today and tried on the new fatigue pants. Just as expected: fit is great, fabric very nice, lightweight for summer. Price $ 235! They told me, it's the fabric price. I think, I would want the olive ones. Hope I can find those on a sale!
I used my store credit and got the new indigo workshirt. Love the fabric! Will be great for the summer and for right now smile.gif price is right too: $ 165.

Nice, thanks for the fit pics! Fit looks perfect on those things, I'm just afraid the fabric is lighter than I want them to be. Really want a nice mid-weight twill in that fit and style. May have to keep waiting unfortunately. Oh well, not like I really need more pants.
