Engineered Garments SS 16 - Page 18

post #256 of 877
i am lucky enough to get to go to nepenthes but i feel you, the sizing is wildly inconsistent. the long bush shirts fit like tents last season and the spring xxl jackets barely fit me at all.

Also since when do guys dress to impress girls ? Lets be honest. Its only other dudes that brand check what you are wearing. Girls are happy as long as you are neat, clean and smell good !

I'm still to be sold on this baggy merchandise though.

Is everything that's not skin tight now considered "baggy" thanks to this SLP trend? EG definitely used to produce looser clothes but most of what they produce now has a pretty regular fit, if not slim (Andover jacket, Cinch pant, etc...)

 

I'm thankful EG are one of the few brands who can make a slim fit pant with a decent rise.

See now we're getting somewhere. I simply did a google images search. I'm naive about this and just trying to understand. As I get older I tend to like fitted but not tight garments, though I'm still in good shape. Very much dislike drop-crotch pants and bulky oversized garments generally though. But a big sweater can look good.

I have no idea what SLP means.

I'm late to this conversation, but man, I love the newer cut of the cinch pants. Have 4 pairs and I wear them so much. They just work with everything. Of course, I also definitely have the slimmer build. been wearing the black wool/cashmere ones from this FW a solid 2-3 times per week since October.

I'd avoid the Loiter, if you are worried about length. That is a bit shorter.

EG isn't the most friendly brand for taller guys, but there are a few taller guys on here that pull it off well. You just have to be comfortable with a slightly cropped look.

Think I'll just look at other brands. Really like the aesthetics of EG though, thanks for the feedback

nah you can get away with the sleeves the shirt sleeves are plenty long the blazers aren't like ridiculously short just don't expect them sleeves to fall to your wrist

@Nanob I've been into eg for 2 seasons now and I got into it cuz the prints and fabrics are phenomenal most seasons and I love all the casual blazers especially the ones that button up the lapels like the Bedford and Brookline. When I see the look book the outfits as a whole are too out there for me, but take one jacket here one loud printed short there and some NBs or vans and it looks great

Don't suppose any kind soul has a SS16 inventory that they could easily copy and paste up please?

I'm particularly interested in fatigue short and camp/popover shirt options.

Thanks.

I wear EG to look like a 19th century miner so I can get 19th century girls.

I'm 6'4" as well and I have two Bedfords and an Andover in XXL and the sleves on all three of them are long enough. I wear a 37" sleve on my dress shirts. I am broad enough, however, to warrant wearing size XXL, something I know many others who wear EG are not.

Do you have any willy post pants? I'm thinking of getting some to see how it looks with bigger thighs. I know they're designed more to flare out in the top block, but I'm thinking it might just look well-fitted with big thighs. What do you think?
