Any of the shops carrying it?

Agreed. In my opinion, GBV doesn't look good with many of the brands that EG does. Wearing a GBV flannel / shirt with EG, Needles, Orslow, Post O'alls, Beams +, Sassafras etc. just seems slightly off to me. I think this is because Gitman isn't necessarily trying to appeal to the typical E.G. crowd. While there are definitely shirts out there of similar quality and price as E.G. I think it ultimately comes down to the style you are attempting to achieve.
Tonio - If I have some time later I will get some of my photos. In the meantime the FW14 look book has two very accurate shots of the E1 pant. (Not very savvy at posting pics so hopefully you can dig these up)
Page 6 - Khaki 14W corduroy
Page 24 - Grey Herringbone
Of note, the Khaki corduroy is styled with a boot that hits higher + pant tucked in vs. the grey herringbone is with a lower profile shoe sans socks. Shows how the pants work with differing footwear choices.
So far I wore mine with some Yuketen Johnson boots, Alden chukkas, and low Vans. Pics to come.
