I see a lot of people that post in here that look great in their EG pieces, but I'm not sure of their builds in comparison to mine. I know some brands really only look good on thin people.

 

Cole, I believe the guy you want to confer with goes by Kunk (or TheKunk, or something like that!) on the board. He's posted in the waywt thread quite recently sporting some EG. I think he's of a similar build to you. Cheers!

Awesome. Thanks for the info. I really appreciate it. We'll see how well I can pull it off then.

XL - I'm 42.5" chest, 6'1" and have a bit of room, but I can only size down on oversized pieces.

I'm around 200 6'1" 44 chest and I wear large and xl. I do prefer a slimmer fit than mok, so I probably should only wear xl.

You guys are awesome. Thanks for the quick response. I'll try out XL then. Thank you.

Hmm, I generally prefer a slimmer look too as it shows off musculature more, but I have gotten the sense from reviewing this thread and other EG threads that EG isn't really meant to be worn slim. Do you have any pics of you wearing EG more slim fitting?

I would look up pictures of guys like Daiki and Abdul Abasi, the (old?) manager of Nepenthes New York. They are pretty slim and obviously wear the brand really well. Also, just search #engineeredgarments on Instagram and you'll find a bunch of styling pictures from the Japanese shops.

 

Just don't go too far into the slim spectrum and start taking styling cues from Context or Indigo & Cotton. You'll look like a sausage casing.

Fit on the pants and jacket are spot on. Really like it, though I can't help but think that it would benefit from a dark shirt instead of white because of the black pants.

this is more a "random fashion thoughts" question but applies to g2's fit - what's the general opinion on navy blue paired with black (as in blue jacket, black trousers). I'm forever arguing with my wife about it...she says no go, I say go...is it just a lame fashion "rule" or is there something to it...seeing g2's fit, I'm not sure I dig the color combo as much as I thought (fit is great, though!)...also, how about varying shades of one color - I've got several navy EG pieces but in many subtle shades (from varying seasons)...does this work - is it a matter of hitting the right shades...lately I feel more comfortable in the full "suit" same fabric, same shade (season), than I do rocking different shades of blue...

i am 6'2 225 with a 47.5 chest and 33 waist and my physique looks pretty normal in e.g. as the shirts have kind of an american cut in the arms as opposed to euro designers where the sleeves look like they've been painted on me. the outerwear and blazers also tend to have a bell shape so it subverts the v shape

I mean, FW15 was all about a dark pallet, specifically navy, black, and gray. Daiki designed the entire collection in black even. He talks about it in one of the Nepenthes journals, I think someone may have posted it in one of the threads awhile back, but the idea was that black and mixing blacks with other darks was a very 80s movement:

"At that time, black clothes were everywhere not only in Japan, but also in many other countries. I was always in black, too. I then saw styles mixing black and navy colors in the era for the first time. Before that, mixing the two colors was a thing not to do in the traditional fashion world, though matching navy and gray was one of the standards. COMME des GARCONS was the brand that disproved the myth. I was so shocked by seeing it and became crazy about mixing black, navy, and gray for a while after that."

I like it sometimes, I don't like it at all at others. I think to your point, it's all about "hitting the right shades". Specifically the right shades of navy if you're going to try the navy/black thing. As for the mixing of shades in the same color, just have fun with it and don't overthink it too much (Yeah, that can be applied to the navy/black thing too, but I do overthink that one haha). It's EG; there are no rules to how you wear it and it tends to look better anyway when it comes across as effortless. @ManofKent posted a fit on here of some different textured and subtly different olive fabrics together as jacket and pants and it looked great from what I can remember.
