    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
