I'm definitely finding this. I only discovered the brand just over a year ago and bar the odd thing here and there the majority of the clothing I've bought has been EG. I really love the various different cuts and fabrics and the various pieces I've got seem to work together or make me think about putting combinations together that I wouldn't necessarily. From that, I guess, it is making me more adventurous in what I wear and what I would consider buying.
Speaking of which, I just picked up the Black and Blue cord Workaday fatigues and the looser cut is amazing. A great alternative to everything else I have which is quite slim. I'm still not quite convinced that black is a colour way for me and may exchange them for the olive ones but that would be the obvious choice. I'm hoping that was down to the bad light in my hotel room last night and will change when I get back home in a few days. Also, one of the shops I emailed a few weeks back just got back to me about the blue and grey Lafayette pants I've been after all season. Just my luck after I'd given up hope. Might try and find the funds to justify buying them too as I've just been really bored recently of wearing denim all the time.
I'd be interested in hearing peoples thoughts about the this seasons collection now we've all seen most of it outside of the lookbook. I can't really compare to past collections (should really look through some old lookbooks) but there is a ton of product that I think is great this season. I've found that my favourite items have changed as the season has gone on and thought about how I'd wear them with the pieces I already own. There are about 8 or 9 pieces on top of the items I've already bought that I would love to own. Have spent most of my budget but will try and pick another couple of items up come the sales if they are still about.
