I own a few EG pieces, handled many more, never any issues
^I bet Daiki is a super cool dude
Quoted for fucking truth. Couldn't of been said from a more respectable source. If you would take the time to call Nepenthes to report a quality issue, they would make sure it was resolved for you.
Yeah this is absurd. There's nothing wrong with EG quality. And there hasn't been any "decline" in fabrication/construction over the seasons. Yes the prices have gone up but it's been commensurate with the increased prices of domestic manufacture and fabric prices.
To change subjects, a little something from Put This On: http://putthison.com/post/53215469801/real-people-fatigue-pants-of-course-we-all-read
Couple EG pics from the ol' tumblr
Thanks for sharing these. That last picture is brilliant, I would never think about pairing so many different patterns together but I think that looks really good. Whats the print on the vest? Looks like dots but is a little hard to tell.
It's polka dot, and the vest can be reversed to show a blue pattern madras fabric.
I met him in New York , accidently went into the storeroom , rather than the shop , we welcomed me & my family in , and we chatted for a while , very passionate about what he does & extremely friendly guy .. Nepenthes reflects this , staff were great , my only gripe is the lack of XXL , only the Bureau seem to stock it , though I do have a fair collection ..
Impressive. I can see myself wearing those in the UK, no kidding.

Can anyone translate?
not seen many photos of upcoming season , should be drifting into shops soon eh ?
I'm sorry if this is going a bit off topic, but as the EG threads are pretty much the only ones I read and post in here on Style Forum, and you are the guys that knows the brand, and NYC the best, I thought I'd put this here.
I'm visiting USA and NYC for my first time between the 14th and 21st of August. I'm staying in NYC, on Manhattan for the whole week. I'm going with an empty suitcase and the plan is to fill it up to the breaking point, aswell as enjoying some good food, places and all the usual 'must sees'. I'm extremely excited!
What clothing stores should I visit?
I have planned, in this order:
Extra NYC (Seems like Inventory and Extra are located side by side?)
Then off to Brooklyn for H.W. Carter & Sons.
These stores will cover the brands I'm most interested in (EG, Battenwear, Beams+, Needles, Nigel Cabourn, orSlow, Post O'Alls, Sassafrass, Workers, Gitman, TS(S))
Except for one and that is Alden. Where nearby should I go for Alden? Preferably the store with the largest stock.
And how much of EG FW13 do you think will be available?
I'll probably be broke after those visits , but while in Brooklyn I thought of maybe pay French Garment Cleaners and Hickoree's a visit.
Anything else? Am I missing out on something worth visiting?
Any suggestions, shops, cafés, restaurants, street food are greatly appreciated. If you feel we're going off topic please don't hesitate to send me a pm!
Many, many thanks.
Bloomingdales stock a limited range of EG. There are two stores in Manhattan definitely worth visiting.
Definitely check out Odin as well, also there's some good second hand stores where you'd be amazed at what you'd find. A lot of Post, EG, etc.
