Engineered Garments Fall / Winter 2013 - Page 69

post #1021 of 1715
If you really want some help then I suggest posting pics of the eg fits you like (browse LB's and jp shops), you could also post a fit pic in your current typical outfit or in lieu of that post your height/weight/chest/waist measurements, that should help us point you in the right direction.

Ok now, that was probably one of the smuggest comments I have ever read.

Chaps is an English word and at least use basic grammar when criticising.

I see my post upset a few of the EG fan boys. You keep ripping yourself off chaps. 

Obviously EG is an expensive brand, but it's one of those brands where I feel like you are definitely paying a premium, but for what you're getting it's totally worth it. Look at Alexander Wang, his tee shirts cost as much as an EG work shirt that'll last you years and years being worn really hard. If the brand doesn't seem "worth it" to you, then maybe you should look elsewhere. There are brands that sell a jacket just as simply constructed as the utility jacket, at a much higher price point with shoddy construction, a shitty fabric, and a silly fit.

I disagree, it was worth it years ago but the price rises each season have taken the brand out of value, unless it is on sale. Most of the Japanese repro brands are cheaper and arguably superior in quality. £185 for an unlined cotton work jacket is no value, £385 for a wool CPO shirt is silly money when you compare it to what the Japanese repro brands offer for less than half the price. 

 

The plaid shirts are selling for £155. For that price I can buy Lofgren, Phigvel, K&TH, Real, Mccoy's etc, all superior to EG in my opinion. I don't like the fact EG use plastic buttons either, I expect better than that when paying £155 for a shirt.

 

As I said, I purchased the utility jacket because I love the design and the colour but the fabric is thin and I was disappointed to see the loose stitching on the pocket. Three of the stitches came undone and it would have unravalled. 

 

Each to their own but I am moving on from EG after buying it for 5-years.

Great, bye.

Like a 13-year old girl sulking because you insulted her favourite boy band.

Stop trying to pick a fight. We get it, you no longer like EG. Good for you. Know what, nobody in this thread really cares much what you think, but we don't need you coming in here trying to spread your negativity. If you don't like EG or don't think it's worth it, okay...I don't care enough to argue. I like it and that is why I participate in the thread. Go find a thread and talk about shit you do like then and leave this one alone.

I believe the recent price hikes have more to do with controlling demand rather than anything else.

Inventory do well with their styling of outfits, but this guy above is freakishly tall, Coupled with his slim build, it makes the fits look very awkward.


As a side note, what's with all the negative sentiment on this thread lately!?! IT'S JUST CLOTHING!!!!

Hmm. I don't think he's freakishly tall, but w/out a little context it's hard to tell. I think the fit is pretty strong. I always struggle w/ the idea of blazers w/ button downs left untucked--so often just looks messy--and this is nice way to treat it and take advantage of the shirts hem shape. That said, it also serves to call attention to the cropped nature of the jacket.

To quote Inventory website:

Matthew (6'4", 145lbs) is wearing Small in Engineered Garments and 30/32 in Workers.

I'm 6' and around 165lbs and wear medium! Matthew is definitely quite slim for his height.You have to admit, he's not exactly average build. If anything, he could do with smashing down a sandwich or two!

The below styling appears better in terms of fit, IMHO. NOTE: Only button up and trousers are EG.
