Cargo pants? Seriously? You're going to spend real money on designer cargo pants? Would these even be considered if they didn't have an EG tag in them?
Regarding whether or not the looks are flattering, these models look short and chunky. Models, as a rule, are neither short nor chunky. "Garments that make you look shorter and fatter than you actually are" is a pretty good definition of "unflattering."
I'd say the fact that the collection seems to be modeled on Lewis Hine photographs makes it qualify as "costume-y." (FWIW, I actually like bow-ties a lot.)
On the quality front, they might be using good fabrics; but the atrocious cutting and sewing, while it may be an intentional design decision, ruins it. The clothes just don't do anything for the wearers.
