    ^^Im starting to plan my future university teacher /old geezer -career look. Im working on the oxford shirts and leather, next step is the cord jacket and cord pants.
    That's why i don't mind buying some of the items i have now. The forum brands have such high resale value. I like some of the EG look books and styling i've seen, but i'm not as in love with individual pieces as most are. I'd just need to find a look and commit to creating it instead of taking individual cool pieces. Oh well, the little fashion nipper as rye called me lives on for another year at least.

    The great thing with EG is that it will transition seamlessly from fashion forward outdoorsman today, to stodgy collage lecturer tomorrow. The perfect brand.

    I wonder if I should ask my gf to see if the binocular f/w is still on sale in my size...

    Conveyed for Gary: We just returned home from our buying trip in NYC. We visited with EG on Sunday evening and selected some truly amazing things from them for F/W 08. The new fabrics are amazing and there were some new styles added to the collection. The shirts were the least enamoring which surprised me for I have always been excited about them. The sweaters and knitwear were great and the prices were a bit more reasonable than this past seasons.

    Awesome - I was hoping to see more knitwear this next year. The cardigan from 07 ended up being one of my more favorite pieces (unexpectedly, as I hated it at first).

    someone asked how the EG tapered jeans fit, and seeing as I just got mine from peasant yesterday (amazing service as usual), i'll post a shitty fit pic. Excuse the picture of my junk


    [​IMG][​IMG]
    I wanted to take more detailed pics, but haven't had time. The detailing is great, felled inseams, lined waist and back yoke, half lined pockets, lined hem (can kind of see the red in the pics), my gripes are the belt loops seem a bit flimsy (really thin), weight of denim is VERY light, possibly my lightest pair, i'd say maybe 10-12oz, and no chainstitch hem.

    But the fit is great, I had the opportunity to try these on at American rag in LA last month, so i knew what i was getting, but they run a size small. can't beat the $76 price tag though.

    Thanks karissa!

    ^ The fit looks great. I'd already have a pair if they were made with longer inseams.

    I like the sound of it already, but I hope you don't get into any trouble. [​IMG]

    Denim is 8oz from Cone Mills. White Oak I believe. I just wish they weren't so slim. If you are going to make a lightweight summer pair or jeans why not use your (wider) straight leg cut?

    awesome, i was going to say 9oz, but didn't want to undershoot it. 8oz seems right though, they're the thinnest pair of jeans i own. Its great to know these are cone, actually my first pair (minus the rag&bone i had for a week) of all american made jeans i've owned in like at least 5 years since levi's moved production overseas. can't wait to try these on and see what they fade like seeing it's cone/white oak denim, some of the best in the world

    great fit poly!!

    but those aren't the light weight summer jeans right? didn't you get the discounted ones from f/w? I'm pretty sure peasant said those are 12 oz. but they've taken the description down since they sold out. wouldn't it be weird to make fall/winter jeans at 8 oz? maybe not.

    they run a size small. can't beat the $76 price tag though.

    By a size, you mean the 30 and 36 they have left would fit like a 29 and a 35 respectively?

    If so ... I'd either have to loose or gain a lot of weight ... probably easier to gain.

    What size did you buy and what size did they measure?

    Edit:
    Nevermind ... I see you bought a 30, and they probably measured 29.
