Unprofessional response from a vendor, you sound childish.

Not only was I implying that the comments are moot but your criticism conveys a bashing of a brand. i.e., your comments about the use of plastic buttons on the work shirt. Criticism should elicit a positive outcome but you seem to want to promote abandonment. I don't own this forum but I know the person who does and he would say, come here to share knowledge and have fun. Don't be a Party Pooper!

Sorry however I have to agree with the original poster - he is entitled to express his opinions on a forum (as long as he is not a troll or a continual basher).  Just because one purchases a brand there is no reason to be a fan boy and blindly accept that everything that the brand does is "gospel".  Some things are good and some are bad.  A forum is for an exchange of opinions and commentary - whether positive or negative.

 

I buy EG - some items I like and I consider them well made - others not so.  Same with other brands I buy.

Stopped by a few stores and tried on a bunch of EG; here's the sizing situation I experienced.

I'm 6' ~175lbs, usually wear a M in tops, 32 in bottoms.

  • Workshirt – size down to S
  • Tab collar – size up to L due to sleeve length
  • Spread collar – tts
  • Lafayette – size up to L due to body length, though tts would be fine if you wore it as a midlayer
  • Bush shirt – tts
  • Bedford – tts
  • Highland pants – size up to 34 otherwise they fit like tights but without any lycra. These also have waist cinches (not just buttons), so it's easy to pull in the waist the little bit you need to from sizing up.

Also, a shout out to @mbaum & @Cotton Dockers for hanging out and trying shit on with me.

Where did you try on the bush shirt? How did you like it?

'I really like EG flannels' is hardly bashing. I usually buy an EG flannel every winter, but not this season as none of the colours appeal.

 

My EG navy/tan/white flannel is still one of my favourite shirts, but I do wish they would use natural buttons. I sew on my own corozo buttons because I don't like plastic, it's a personal preference.

He didnt comment about plastic button; I did. And I wound up still buying it and liking it and may buy another but I still wish the buttons were made from some other material. And its a fashion shirt. Few are buying it to do actual work in.

There is nothing wrong with being critical or else whats the point of this board. We could just read the press release.

C'mon, man, this isn't an affiliate thread designed for you to hawk your wares. I appreciate these kind of opinions, and already have to wade through all kinds of promotional bullshit and constant sales and stock updates across three or four threads just to get to it. Please try to keep that in mind.

I really like EG flannels but there is better value for money out there.

Each and everyone here is allowed to express and share their own opinions...and in doing so; subject themselves to whatever feedback may come from other members. If you choose to post a comment not only knocking the quality, price and value of EG, but adding alternatives (this is not a Sugar Cane/UES/Deluxeware Forum) then expect that your probably going to offend people that feel passionate enough about the brand to interact here in the first place. Personally, though I find it out of place; I didn't find the original post offensive. Neither was Gary's question or response. Is he not just as entitled to his feelings on the matter as the original writer. Let's not be hypocritical, and if your going to sling a little mud; expect to get dirty.

"Don't post opinions on things I don't sell" is certainty not an informative or helpful response, and neither is uniform praise from a vendor looking to move units at any cost. Its not a difference of opinion, it's just spam, more filler we all have to wade through. Your comments are more applicable to a true discussion -- of which this thread is in dire need.

Otherwise, as someone above said, we could all just re-read the promotional materials.

FWIW, I think most of the value in EG is in the design, not small differences in quality. At least for me, as long as things are made "well enough," I just care about how the item looks (and will look over time). People underrate design on menswear forums, IMO, and overrate construction quality.

My understanding was that this was an EG thread--hence many people visiting as opposed to posting aren't devoted fans of the brand. And discouraging members from sharing their honest opinions of a brand is terrible for this board as a whole. If you don't like the type of clothing EG produces, sure, keep it to yourself. But commenting on quality or comparing EG to competing brands is legitimate useful discussion. I don't care for the look of most the Sugar Cane stuff I've seen, but I still appreciate the feed back

Alright guys, simmer down.  Not even going to bother commenting on the matter at hand, which is trivial, and really, comes down to a matter of tone.  So let's just all chill out and walk away and have a whiskey sour or something (I'm thirsty right now).  

 

On a personal note, I like Engineered Garments.  I also like Sugarcane.  They have nearly entirely different POVs, and have different goals.  It's sorta like arguing whether a heavy biker jacket or a soft lambskin jacket is "better". There is really not an argument to be had, so let's not make one, and let's definitely not escalate the one we have already.

 

Thanks guys,
