I don't get EG much. So a Japanese guy creates American workwear-inspired clothes to sell to the Japanese (who love the stuff) but meanwhile Americans are buying it as well? That's like Mexicans eating at Taco Bell. I must be missing something.

^ There's a whole thread answering that question, but the basic appeal is quality, details, and country of origin (USA). The cult status and singularity of the brand's vision also helps.

As far as I can tell EG is also more vintage American workwear inspired than contemporary. It's not always that easy to find quality pieces similar to what EG produces in the US anymore, even if the styles do originate from here.

The quality, fit and materials are superior to the American brands that serve as inspiration, with the only real alternatives arriving at a much higher price point.

By the way peeps, there are a ton of you on here that own EG. Start posting your fit pics so I'm not one of a few!

Next thing you know, the Japanese will be making denim and selling it to Americans.

i got the most ridiculous fur lined vest at the sample sale. its my goal to find a way to incorporate it into regular outfits and it might start tomorrow. i hate thinking about the sale cause had i arrived just a few hours earlier i would be been much better off, but also a lot poorer.

You've got to post some pics of this vest. I've been curious to see it since you mentioned it yesterday.

^^^They're meant to help keep your lower legs warm by tucking them into your boots or, as I did, into your socks. Otherwise they look pretty sweet coming out of the bottom, something you don't see everyday.

I wore them a little bit tonight and had the drawstrings tight, with the extra material all bunched up. It did look cool. thanks again
