I have navy from last years release. I picked up the white/khaki yesterday and proxied a pair of navy for Tworksheets. I would have checked in sooner but trying to conserve battery life on my phone to make sure I could figure out how to get around was a priority! Sizing is definitely the same as last years. Size down .5 your normal vans size. I have 9.5 in the navy from last year and they are slightly big. Got the 9 this time around and they fit perfect. There actually ended up being a line for the shoes friday morning- not very big though, I was at the front (got there early by chance) and by the time I checked out there was maybe 15 people waiting. It was very good that Tworksheets and I were the same size because on top of the "one of each color rule" they were also insisting you can only buy one size- that actually made me pretty happy as it deters flipping. I'll keep my hopes up for you guys that they are still available come monday but I'm pretty skeptical they will last all weekend.

Here's a crappy foot pic for now. Proper full-body fit coming soon for sure- looking forward to rocking these all summer. The suede is a lot more fine/less shaggy than last years offering. Makes them a bit more minimal.

Thanks buddy, I was set on the black pair but those white/tan look pretty good as well, cheers!

Can anyone comment on how the olive ripstop fatigue pants fit? I've never purchased any EG items before so I'm not very familiar with how it fits.

edit:
current season run big in the waist, slightly roomy top block and slight tapper from knee to hem, inseam on all sizes is around 30"-31"

I would disagree on the waist, in my experience they fit huge. I have the xs, and the waist measures 32 inches around.

true, I had the ones labelled 28,30,32, etc in mind and completely forgot about the xs,s,m,etc ones

those do fit big in the waist, some have tabs at waist which bring them down to almost tts, the new ones have drawstrings that also kinda help but for us smaller waisted dudes, we're fucked!
(I've tried 2 xs and 1 s this season and none fit the bill, one xs though did feel better than the other, was probably around a 30" waist)
shame too 'cuz I really wanted the navy rs ones


\/, as predictable as most plots in got (wondering what kind of markup I'll have to pay for a pair now)

stopped in yesterday and was only able to grab an 8.5 in navy for the egxvans, no smaller sizes were left. I was hoping for an 8 in black or navy - if anyone was able to grab a pair and realized they needed an 8.5 shoot me a message.

No 8.5> sizes? nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Thanks guys, I'm 6'1" so I don't think the inseam would work (I was looking at a size L as I'm normally a 34/34 across the board). Too bad, I've always wanted a pair of those fatigue pants.

You can buy a pair of EG Workaday fatigues on sale and get them tapered to your liking as an alternative. The baggy fit of the Workaday fatigues isn't for everyone (myself included) so I have opted to taper both pairs I own, however the fabrics are always nice and feature good construction so its worth looking in to.

Nomad also has their pants on sale down to ~$150 USD

Early's Fatigues are pretty similar and cheaper. https://www.allseasonsuniforms.com/ea13a.htm
