Do any EG shirts taper in at the waist at all ? Just received a work shirt and i don't like the fit at all : very loose midsection / baggy + long arms. Was wondering if the 19th century might be a better fit for me.

The work shirt is particularly baggy, and for what it's worth the 19th century BDs I've had have been fairly loose. The only EG shirt that's been remotely slim fitting is my hidden placket flannel.

Give the Tab Collar shirt and Western shirts a look. I'm not sure about the western (don't own any) but my 2 tab collar shirts are fairly slim. 19th C. shirts are not slim nor tapered. The last few season the workshirts have been cut large so you could try sizing down. That being said if slim, tapered shirts are your thing I'd look to another brand. Gitman Brothers Vintage comes to mind.

Yeah I measured the waist of a recent 19th Century BD vs. an older work shirt and the measurements were the same. It could change from season to season though. The first thing I thought when I got a 19th Century BD was that it seemed baggy around the waist, but I got used to it and they are now one of my favorite shirts. I could recommend the Orslow work shirts, the 2 pocket ones like this if you are looking for slim.

If you get them from Japan they are almost 1/2 that price.

Quoting for emphasis for @modual's benefit. I don't understand wanting to buy something you don't like. EG is maybe a "cool" brand, but you should find pieces that you like the look of (tons of stockists post fit photos) instead of just trying to find some EG pieces you like. Seems very backward to me.

Pretty much everything besides the 19th Century BDs and workshirts are "slim," but nothing EG makes is "slim and tapered." Nothing fits like it has darts in it, nor do they taper at the waist.

@ctb87 thanks they are a year old and still going strong!

Does anyone own the older season wool cinch back pants? I'm thinking of picking up a pair, but I'm worried the fabric might be too formal to work with work shirts and boots

Which season? The ones I've got (2013?) are very much flannel like - not a smooth worsted, so not overly dressy, but I'd find them a bit slim for some combinations. It also depends on the fabric of the work shirt.

The Cinch pants are on the more formal end of EG pants. If you're into the more workwear aesthetic, you're better off focusing on something more "rugged." I saw you ask in WAYWT for how to make things more interesting and the person recommended something looser in wool, which you took to mean something like Cinches. To be frank, I don't think their suggestion was anything like EG Cinches, which are not "flowy" whatsoever. While you could certainly wear a pair of slim wool pants with a Bedford and boots, but I think it would look much better with a pair of corduroys or one of the more adventurous wool makeups like the wool BDUs from this season. If you got something that cinched at the hem, you might be able to pull off something more interesting.

That being said, it looks like you're a kid in college. Don't worry so much about getting this or that from EG. Wool Cinch pants are like $500 or $200 if you can find them on Rakuten. The way you dress is already way more put together than most kids. Stick with a pair of jeans or try and get some fatigues – Earl's fatigues (also made in the US) are like $40 and require a $15 trip to the tailor. Or get a pair of Dickies and do the same thing: that's what Chris Gibbs who owns Union does and he looks way tighter than most of the folks you see here or anywhere else on the internet.

Point I'm trying to make is: Take some time to let your taste develop. Do some slow research finding things you like. Buy cheap shit to experiment with. Once you're confident you know what really works for you, then you can start going HAAM on wherever you end up.

@ManofKent they are 2011 I believe but thanks for the insight on the fabric.

@eluther thanks for your comment, I was pretty sure cinch back pants were not what I was looking for, but wanted to make sure. As far as buying I'm looking at used from rakuten, grailed, and yahoo Japan, I am a college student and appreciate your compliment.

I'm trying to experiment more right now with cheaper looser pants and found some eg clinches for relatively cheap (70 plus shipping), and just wanted to make sure they wouldn't work like I thought they wouldn't. Thanks for the ideas on cheaper pants! My budget for a pair is 70-80,so these suggestions look great.

As far as my taste goes I understand what you mean, I want looser pants to grow my taste, I like the look of looser pants in photos, but I'm unsure if I personally would like them in any form other than jeans, wool or corduroy feels like the perfect FW fabric for me, because I live in the Midwest and even now our days are starting to deep into the 30s (Fahrenheit).
