Cheers. I agree, was just hoping against my better senses really.

If anyone wants the black floral flannel in XL, pm me.

Sorry for two posts in a row but this is nice. I was wondering how people wear the Dayton. Do you always just wear it as a mid layer or does it look good on it's own?
post #1263 of 1411

The Dayton's perfect as an outerwear piece in warmer temperature.

 

It's even better in the picture above as a layering piece. I layer even more in the fall/winter.

I do it for all my workshirts for the last 2 years. If you on the shorter side, it just makes sense. It's a really simple alt for my tailor, he just keeps the hemline the same so it does not change the look of the shirt. I only take off about an inch on front and back.

So he matches the overall curve of the hem? Any pics? I like the EG fit overall but my SS11 chambray workshirt is crazy long and slim fitting. I like the slimness now that I've lost weight, but the length looks a little off.

I have the same issue and ss11 was the worst for the length/width ratio. So, I get some of my workshirts altered.

You're correct. Cut length off the bottom, blend in trying to retain original curve. Some tailors won't do it claiming it's too much work and won't look good. I was refused by two different tailors. My new tailor said no problem, charged $10 and you can't tell it was ever altered.

I just recently picked up my first couple of EG shirts. At 6'4", and this will come as no surprise, I love the length. They stay tucked in, if I am so inclined, and when not tucked in, they give my torso enough length to offset my long legs.

Overall, I will say that I am very impressed with the workmanship. If somebody were to say, I don't understand why you paid $175 (using full retail) )for that shirt when you could have the same shirt for $100 less at J Crew, there are at least items I could point to in the construction of the shirt that make it miles ahead of the J Crew product. Throw in all the interesting little design features (like a pencil pocket) and the difference becomes clear.

Can somebody explain the relationship between Nepthenes and EG?

Also, how come EG doesn't want its products sold online at Context, but seems to be okay with it at other online retailers?

Briefly, there are a number of labels produced by nepenthes, the company, including eg, fwk, south2west8, needles, and now some clothes are being made under the nepenthes label. If you're in NYC definitely go to the nepenthes store on w 38th. It's a us/Japanese company, with most of the clothes being made in NYC. The s2w8 bags are made in Wisconsin. Daiki Suzuki is the head honcho.

Not just made in NYC; it's made 2-3 blocks away from the store itself.

 

You can just imagine the intense quality control Daiki/the production team have over the entire process.

Nepenthes is the father brand for all the clothing labels it owns. Eg, Needles, Nepenthes, south2west8, and they have a stake in barena (I think), mainland boots, owner operator, and some other brands.

For the Dayton, I love mine and wore it as a standalone piece last night. Stop posting in this thread guys I don't want the brand to get this much attention. (5)

Hi there,

 

I need some help (although there are tons of posts regarding sizing):

 

I am interested in the 2012 Whipcord Bedford Jacket.

In Nigel Cabourn stuff I need a 52 and in most slimmer cuts a Large (shoulders).

I bought a EG 2012 Baker Jacket this winter which I took in Medium and which is still a bit roomy, previous EG stuff fit well in L.

The guy in the store told me that this years pieces are quite big.

 

So should I choose Large for the Whipcord Bedford Jacket?

 

Your help would be much appreciated..!

 

Thanks,

J

really ?

I have been buying EG for a long while , and the stitching is their real let down , mis-stitching , loose ends .. I like it , 'cause it adds to the whole work-wear look , slight imperfections ..
