Awesome, penance....what are the shirt and trousers?
post #3245 of 3855

Would I be able to build an EG focused wardrobe with 3-5 grand or should I be expecting to spend much more? Love the clothes but don't know if I have enough to buy a cohesive wardrobe yet as all my my current clothes wouldn't tie in very well with EG. I live in AZ so it would be mostly s/s gear.

Yes, you could definitely do that but I'd caution spending that much money on any wardrobe without having a better idea of what exactly you want. Buy a couple of pieces and see if you like it. Going used is an even better option. There are plenty of gently used EG pieces floating around the various classifieds and japanese sites (yahoo japan auctions and rakuten). I don't think I bought a new EG piece until I already owned like 15 used ones.

ah, this is fun!  It's ugly, but here's a quick budget:

 

Spring/Summer

 

2 Bedfords x $350                 =           $700

1 pair cinch pants to match    =      $250

1 pair olive fatigues x $225 =             $225

1 19cbd x $250                   =             $225

1 work shirt x $225             =             $225

1 shorts x $225                   =            $225

 

Total                                     =          ~$2000

 

Fall/Winter

 

2 Bedfords x $500               =                                       $1000

1 pair matching wool pants x $300   =                          $300

1 contrast pair wool pants   x $300   =                          $300

1 outerwear (reversable coat or highland park) x $750  =  $750

 

Total                                                  =  ~$2500

 

 

already at close to $5k

 

like agvs said, start used or with one or two new pieces you really dig.  build off of those and don't go all in at one time.  the fun of EG is picking out a few pieces each season and fitting them into your wardrobe - exchanging older pieces or experiment with new fabrics, patterns of pieces you already own.  it really is a world of options once you embrace all the varied combinations...i'm a certified eg addict at this point.  WELCOME!

Very helpful thanks. Are there any other brands out their that tie into the EG aesthetic well, while being a bit cheaper?

anyone have any suggestions for jeans? i bought a pair of Naked and Famous Weird Guys thinking they would be loose but they were still skin tight on the thighs. obviously i like the EG selvage jeans, but those are kinda hard to come by.

I believe there's a pair of eg jeans on grailed right now - denim is a whole other world entirely. You can't go wrong with most anything Japanese

I would note that if you are patient you'll find most staple pieces at significant discount thru sales or on eBay, grailed, rakuten etc.

I'm trying to piece something together to wear to a memorial service, and was wondering if EG can be conservative enough for this. I was thinking:

 

Grey Tropical Wool Andover

Grey Tropical Wool Cinch Pants

White Dress Shirt

Dark Tie w/a conservative pattern

Black Dress Shoes

 

Is the Andover suit too flashy and/or casual? Should I just stick with a standard charcoal suit?

post #3255 of 3855
I would stick to a traditional suit unless the EG "suit" is keeping with the tone of the service or a way of remembering the deceased. That is, was the person an EG fan, etc.
