    Big thanks to Gary and Steven for helping me pre-order this beautiful shawl.

    I'll be calling in to Nepenthes tomorrow for the Vans collab. Hoping they will still have the navy mismatch in my size. I was under the impression it was only Nepenthes who would be carrying them. Any info on other stockists? (Good to know if it doesn't work out tomorrow)

    I'm a 15.5/16 neck across the board and my medium tab collars fit well/are roomy.

    Thanks. I wonder if they will be going to EG stockists only or to retailers with just vans vault accounts as well.

    We carry both brands and unfortunately they were not produced for wholesale by EG.

    I just came across this on the Japanese EG thread. I gotta say this is the best Reversible Bal coat I've seen yet. Probably the most expensive jacket in the mainline (excluding EG x GB) considering the salmon people 1 side, reversed sateen on the other. Worth every penny.

    Today is a good day!!! After years of searching I finally found a red chambray for sale on Rakuten, thanks to Ryan's (lawlercon's) tip, and it arrived today. So happy to finally have one of these in my collection :slayer:

    Yeah, I know this doesn't really have anything to do with FW13 but had to share!

    Well, I guess the EG Vans collab sold pretty fast haha

    If anyone gets a pair of the slipons (any colour) in US9 that doesn't fit or they dont want, let me know

    I'll even pay above retail :)

    How do the waist tabs usually affect sizing on EG pants- ie. do the waist tabs on a 32 make them nearer 30-31in or is it more like 33-34 down to 32 with the tabs done up? Or does it vary depending on the style/season? I'm a 31in waist (actually nearer 30" 3/4 these days) trying to work out what size would be best in USN pants or last FW's ground crew pants. Workaday cords (which I understand fit small) are perfect for me in a 32 - but they're the only pair of EG pants I have so far so still a bit of a newb on this front.

    General rule is to size down one from your Workaday cord size. As far as the tabs go, a 34 is going to be a 34, but the tabs allow that to be snugged up a bit.

    Got the last pair of olive Authentics and some of the last sunforgers in 8.5.

    All are pretty much sold out in 8-9. I was also told these wil be a Nepenthes only release, not hitting Vault accounts.

    How is the sizing on Van's? I've tried searching but everything is being compared to other sneakers and I'm not much of a sneaker guy. I go 12 in Quoddy (or 11.5 for sockless wear), 11 in Tru Balance last or Barrie last (just barely...have gone 11.5 too), and 11.5 in White's Semi-Dress. Any suggestions?

    I'm a true US9, take a 9.5 in Vans, 8.5 on Alden Barrie last, 8.5 in Converse Chuck Taylors.

    To further complicate things, they're saying the EG x Vans fit half a size large

    I'd guess you need an 11 or 11.5 for the EG x Vans
