Workaday versions or the mainline version? Absolutely love my Navy ripstop fatigues from this season

Workaday in olive reversed sateen.Thought it would be a good starter EG pant - no? Looking for a roomier fit in the thighs as well.

The Workaday fatigues are great too and the reversed sateen is one of EGs best fabrics imo. Not sure if this is still the case but they have a slightly looser fit than the mainline fatigues (which it sounds like you'll enjoy)

Im contemplating on the workaday version because of the fabric options- ripstop (main EG) vs reverse satin. Are the fit of pants so different that I should consider?

Workday fatigues are best described as having a "full" fit through the leg. Which essentially means from your butt down it doesn't taper. The mainline fatigue pants have a more modern straight fit. 

 

You can view the fit of mainline fatigues here:

compared to Workday here:

I have personally bought two pairs of EG Workaday fatigues and I have had both pairs tapered. I have a small frame and they were simply too baggy for me. I had one pair tapered in to a slim straight fit, and the other in to a modern straight fit.

dammit mbaum, I'm supposed to be on a spending freeze here

I think there is a noticeable difference - measured here for M (Which fits a TTS 34 - From TBB and my own experience).

  • Mainline SS14: Slimmer in thigh (12") and hem (~8" or a tad over), they are shorter (Almost cropped) with an inseam of ~30". Ripstop fabric is incredibly light and rather thin. Waist is 34.5" with draw string 
  • Workaday: Baggier in thigh and leg (13" thigh) and hem (9"), traditional length (32 - 33"). Reversed Sateen is heavier so it feels/ looks different, not as light. Waist seems 34" with button tabs to go down an inch

 

I am a big fan of the mainline fatigues this season and got a couple of them. They are still a relaxed fit, even with my slightly larger thighs and have become my go-to everyday pants.

 

Hope this is helpful.

 

Mike

Thanks. I got gray reverse satin fatigues. Olive fatigues are bread and butter of EG and i guess i can get them whenever i want.

Anyone help proxy EG Vans to the UK? Will obviously compensate you for your trouble. Thanks.

I have the Grey Reversed Sateen Utility Jacket - it's a nice color. Let me know what you think of them.

 

FWIW: Nepenthes is going to start taking phone orders on Monday for the Vans collab and I think since they're very similar to last year they won't sell out extremely quickly. Hold tight non-New Yorkians and you'll get a pair.

I was thinking about these. Can anyone who owns these speak to their versatility? I know in CM gray pants are usually the optimal choice, but I wonder if these would work the same way.
