    don't hate, participate or congratulate.

    eg - keep bustin' it! [​IMG] the key is to get a grammy winner (preferably an actress, b/c the gals pay more attention to this stuff - do you do women's stuff?) to appear in one of your creations soon after accepting her award (think about those nascar guys and the dudes who keep changing their baseball caps). THEN, when another award-winning actress appears on leno/etterman have them wear one of your more 'thoughtprovoking' pieces. when jay/dave asks them about it, they will say it an eg, & naturally mention how meryl/penelpoe/reese/etc was wearing one at the grammys. pass GO & collect $200...

    those cut out jeans that he makes, if he would up the denim quality a bit and add some swavaroski (sp) crystals and stuff, that would actually sell really, really well if he got it on anyone remotely famous. His cut out fashions would work very well for women, if he does it right. Those congruent ties would also be big if he did them in a higher quality silk and marketed them to the right people.

    Congrats, Eric. Your stylistic vision and mine may differ considerably, but you may recall I was one who always encouraged you to pursue your dream.

    I hope you make it really big and can laugh about the time you were banned from Ask Kabbaz About Cruiser (which I always thought was a flagrant outrage, by the way!)

    So he was able to give some stuff away, and it probably didn't cost him more than 5 or 6 thou.

    And to think he was mocked...

    I'm honestly just curious: what's the thinking behind the Aerobie-like, cutout brim?

    I think as a prize you should be able to pop fcuknu in the mouth. It's only fair. Digital justice.

    I love the practicality of a hole in the hat. Facilitates adequate airflow to keep face cool. Aerodynamics ftw.

    Of course, it also means that it reduces the amount of shade that the hat provides to the face - which is usually the main reason to wear a hat!

    Eric you absolutely made my day. Congratulations on your continuing success. We never would have dreamed how far you would be able to take this thing but you did and now it looks like success is just around the corner. Will you be moving to LA?

    I always had faith. When I can fit back into my suits I will rock one of your ties. (though I must admit I'm not a fan of those hats)

    Thats cool. I try to make products for everyone and I am trying to put EG in every man/woman/child's closet. Ties for menswear, hats for streetwear, and my blue jeans are next for womenswear. I just dont want to limit my ideas to one section of demographics. Glad you like the ties and the ties were also backstage at the live Grammys ( Staples Center) and also at the musicares celebrity bash with Neil Young at the Grammy pre-party. I just dont have photos yet from those events.

    Sure hats were made for the sun , but nowadays the baseball hat is a vector to establish a trademark, brand, or logo. This hat is a unique way to hit the streets in a different headwear look to the clubs, out in the evening, or maybe the Yankees might pick them up for an evening baseball game. All kinds of different avenues for the cutout visor baseball hat. I can see Nike picking them up for the skateboarding line or a professional sports team trying them out for their logo , or even a major company like Coke to sport a new logo on a huge rap star. These hats are streetwear and the streetwear crew loves them. I have seen it personally when I walked the MAGIC show floor. The energy and emotion when they see the hat is very real and the hats will be on fire in the next year. My next stop is a huge motion picture releasing in the Summer 10'. I talked to the executive producer of the movie and it is ON! EG is hitting the "Big screen" baby.
