1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I also wear XS and it's definitely tough to find pieces every season. Nepenthes NY, Drinkwater's, and Context usually have at least one XS in most pieces. The Japanese stockists definitely carry more, but the cost will be significantly higher. If there's a piece you really want, you might consider ordering from Doo-bop. Good EG selection, great service, fast shipping from Japan.

    I'll PM you if I'm thinking about unloading any EG pieces. I started wearing EG about a year ago, so I only have a few shirts and a few jackets.

    Twork - are those the herringbone desert pants?

    Also - how's the fit on the tabs this season? FW 11 tab collars fit me perfectly but SS 12 was hella smedium.

    Yep those are the herringbone desert pants

    Seems to me like the tab collars fit about the same as the SS12 versions. I'm wearing a medium and it feels a touch tighter than the same size tab collar I have from SS12, but that's likely due to the additional thickness of the fabric. I can't compare to previous years since I've never tried on tab collars from before 2012.

    Measurements for my Medium are:

    Shoulder-to-shoulder ~ 17.25"
    Pit-to-pit ~ 20.5"
    Length (from bottom of collar) ~ 29.5"

    Sure, I'll let you know if I wanna unload.

    I'm still looking for the Shawl Collar Shirt Jacket XS in twill chino. If anyone knows where's available, please let me know. Thanks.
