    I picked up a Baker FW 2015 jacket and liked it a lot -- my first EG piece, and now I want to check out EG's SS offerings. I get hot pretty easily and live in a place with some humidity during the summer, so most my casual SS jackets are either linen or linen blends. Just wondering from everyone's experiences whether the all-cotton fabrics of EG's SS pieces are breathable?

    They are pretty breathable. Depends on how brutal the humidity is for you, though. On a really humid day I'd pass and go with a linen blend.

    What do people typically wear for footwear with eg? I see the look books incorporate vans and some NB but besides sneakers what else works with EG?

    I tend to wear Tricker's boots, Red Wing (obviously Chippewa, Thorogood et. al. would work as well) or DMs in the winter and mainly Birkenstock in the Summer. I'll occasionally dress up an EG suit or more formal fit with Loake/Edward Green. Don't over think it :)

    I think that EG and Yuketen compliment each other nicely.

    Big fan of Alden's LWB and have like 5 pairs. Works well for the dressier EG stuff. When more casual, what the guys above said plus some Visvim. Others here also do Needles.And some pulled of quite nice looks with MMM and the moe high-end Italian stuff. but those "hybrid" looks are not easy to pull off (I couldn't).

    In addition the above, Viberg is an easy pairing. I've seen some nice fits with Paraboot but haven't personally tried the brand. I can see Heschung working as well.

    Besides Vans and New Balance, I think the following pair well: Yuketen, Trickers, McKinlays, Victory sneakers (sold at Nepenthes), Needles footwear, Quoddy, Paraboot, Birkenstocks (but I would never wear them), Danners, etc.

    So, I have started to focus a bit on SS16. I think there are some good pieces in this collection. But what is absent are the truly standout loud patterns. Yes, there are the big plaids that are common for Spring/Summer, but we don't have anything like the bird print or the "Hippy" patterns from 2 years ago.

    The Dolphin pattern is pretty good, but I am not sure what I am going to get with it. Don't think the Aviator, not sure I would wear it in the Baker. Maybe the trousers? I like the Daisy pattern (especially the colors) and I am looking forward to seeing it in the Bedford. The diagonal batik print is just OK. Am I missing anything?

    Thanks everyone for the brand ideas! I hve some yuketen ripple soles that might work really well and I'll look into the other brands mentioned. I currently have some brown rancourt ranger "blucher" mocs that need to be resoled, so I might put a white vibram sole to make them more chunky ala the Oakstreet bootmakers trail oxford.

    The Yuketen ripples will work.

    You should also consider Paraboot.

    I love the styling of Paraboot, and everyone vouches for their quality, but the one thing that's keeping me from pulling the trigger is that damn tag. Has anyone tried removing it? Is it possible to completely remove it without damaging the shoe? I'm looking that Chambord, specifically.

    Depends on your outfit / context. So much choice really. For morning dog walking / comfort i like Adidas ultra boosts paired with fleece Leisure pants + Ground jacket. With fatigue pants anything goes really : Vans / boots / converse / stan smith.

    Pull the trigger and we'll remove the tag. We do it for those who have your concerns. A very sharp razor blade does the trick. We also install them for those who get polish on them.

    gary, how much do the Chambord's run? also, always wary of purchasing shoes without trying on...do Chambord's run wide, narrow? I'm familiar with Alden's barrie last - do chambor's compare in sizing? much obliged

    I usually don't like branding on my clothes/shoes, but the Paraboot logo on the shoes does not bother me. I have not tried to remove it and probably will not. Chambord is my favorite Paraboot model. If you can figure out your sizing, I would recommend them. FYI, I am a full size down from my typical US size and a half size down from my Barrie size.
