    Did EG make this season's hoodie in white? I can only find grey.
    I believe they only came out with grey, black, maroon, and pine. And regarding the Vogue article on EG, I think EG's philosophy isn't to make something that's indestructible, but something that evolves with the user. The buttons on almost everything they make will tend to fall off (many a button on the shirts have for me) and it's really up to the user to replace it with either one of the buttons inside or some other button that they like. Hence the reason for the red button at the bottom of the workshirts, as a tribute to that lost bottom button that you replace with something that isn't a perfect match.

    Has anyone bought the EG herringbone western shirt? I typically wear a small (maybe a slim one), and was curious how it fit/if I could fit in an XS, as small is sold out. Thanks for any help
    i can't comment on this season's western shirt, but one i have from a previous season is cut rather roomy, long across the shoulder, long sleeves and long torso. i have a medium and a small would suit me just fine. go for it!

    i could do without chasing after errant MOP buttons myself [imagine punctuation and caps]

    I went up a half size (between sizes) since my bedford will be my primary NYC WINTER '08 jacket.

    After about $175 of tailoring i've made it into a pretty good piece. Fits a hoodie underneath snugly; looks clean with just a shirt. shoulders fit great but upper arms are a bit wide; i'm wondering if i should change that....

    $175 worth of tailoring? Sorry but I actually discourage my customers from buying something if I know that the alterations will cost more than 70 euros. Its like having to sew a completely different piece. Having said that, you've now gotten it exactly how you want it. That's worth it, I guess.

    yeah, seriously, what did you do for $175? the only thing i'm considering at all is just to shorten the arms a bit.

    I live in NY, taking in the back cost me about 90$, I bought water buffalo horn buttons, sleeves shortened was like $30-40 I forget, I paid 20$ for button replacement.

    I don't really mind the cost; the fit is much more to my liking. It is also my mistake since I walked into one of the higher priced tailors in NYC; I wanted to try him out and ended up paying probably 50$ more than it should've cost , even by NYC prices. So yes, sticker shock was involved... The stitching etc., was superb though, and overall it's not regrettable at all considering the service I received.


    I took in the chest ever so slightly as well as added some noticable waist suppression (I looked like some sort of inflatable doll before I did that), sleeves were shortened, buttons changed.

    I paid: ~140 for tailoring, +tax and button costs.

    The horn buttons are a noticeably nice touch. I'm planning on doing those sort of tweaks to my pieces next year.

    Nothing really interests me this season, so i'm doing buttons and tailoring as my weekly clothing expenditures. I'm putting MOP buttons on the rest of my buttonups, horn shirt buttons on casual flannels and the like; having most of my pre styleforum shirts shortened and trimmed; etcetera,.

    My next wardrobe overhaul will be replacing my shirts with CEGO and Jantzen, but while I don't have the money now I still find ways to have fun with my disposable income, clothing wise.

    Folks, im a little late on the winter coat front as i thought i had a coat in storage but dont.

    Do you all think that the duffle coat can get through a NYC winter or is it more of an autum weight jackt. If so, is it possible to even obtain one this late. Im in NYC

    Any other suggestions in wool would be appricated, tryng to find a pic of the norfolk ...

    thanks

    If you can find one go for it. The duffel is definitely a winter coat and it's been keeping me very warm (too warm in fact, on some days). I wore mine into work today and it also held up excellent against the rain.

    Grr... I wish Daiki would make some regular driver's caps. I love the tweeds, just not in the form of a baseball or bucket hat.

    ^^ a grey tweed baseball hat like that seems pretty versatile. Really casual, but not "street". Would work with a lot of EG looks imo.

    I wear a herringbone cap i got at h&m almost every day. Much more dressy than a regular baseball cap

    Love the tweeds. Too bad they don't make any XL's that fit my big head.
