I figured it was the duster in madras, which I hadn't seen anywhere – didn't think to look at Japanese stocklists. Thanks.

For everyone else: just discovered the USN pants have a hidden pocket sewn into the interior of the waitband. Big enough for a prophylactic – which, given the garment's provenance, must have been its originally intended use.

I've never owned a Gitman but this shirt fits better than the EG pop-over I've owned. I found the pop-over to be cut oddly at the bottom because it tapered out as if it was made to fit a beer belly. This particular workaday shirt is cut straight down.

So take yr normal EG size then? Just wondering because the measurements listed on the Bureau's site put right between a L and M compared to a lot of other EG shirts (Pop-Over, 19thC BD, etc).

My EG size is a M or L. This summer I bought an indigo denim work shirt in M, last summer it was a L - they fit almost the same. So it depends. I buy them on-line so unless they are too tight or too big, I don't return.

Their exclusive Workaday stuff is calling my name--perhaps the red utility jacket.

Picked up the basket weave dayton and mil shorts. Didn't think I would care for the dayton but it's been very handy. I got several compliments. 

 

The mil shorts I've been wearing almost every day. Comfortable as f*ck, and will probably get you laid.

It is definitely a muted color, so steer clear if you want something that pops.

Didn't know shorts could get you that far.

Got a pair of Navy Poplin USN pants (Size 34, brand spanking new) for sale on a significant discount. They're great - the color just didn't work for me! Check my classifieds.

 

Also, just picked up a pair of the dark navy Truman pants. Love them; perfect for business casual/casual situations.

What do you guys think about wearing neck ties with work shirts? And what do you think about wearing neck ties with button down collars?
post #748 of 1321

With the Work Shirt, I typically wear a Bow Tie. I think keeping things away from the pocket treatments, stylistically is more appealing. EG always has a great offering of bows and I like my vintage collection for this treatment. Button downs will call for a Neck Tie when the outfit is suitable. I usually will wear one when I'm wearing a jacket. The appropriate knot is the fore in hand.

workshirt + tie combos from engineeredgarments.jp  I think it works quite nicely with the collar shape, though I can understand Gary's thinking with the chest pockets and busyness
