    The field jacket is classic EG. Reminds me of the bird shooter from SS09, which didn't really fit with the seasonal collection then either.

    Jack Straw got in a shipment this week. From what I remember:

    yellow windbreaker
    navy nylon bedford
    stripe baker jacket
    seersucker andover jacket
    navy type 5 jacket
    19th c. shirts in various colors/patterns
    olive fatigue pants
    navy cotton button vest
    lafayette shorts in a floral print and navy/white stripes
    lots of ties
    patchwork madras pork pie hat

    the field jacket really fits with the part of EG that I love. I enjoy some floral prints, but in general the beach theme is 100% for me. regardless tho, that retail is scary.

    I'd be all over the field parka if it was at least 150 less. Only ss13 piece so far I really want

    I believe it's a nylon taffeta which is actually quite soft. Should make all the difference.

    Not sure how many years you have been wearing EG, but the field parka in its different variations has pretty much been a staple piece year in year out regardless of some of the "themes". It's a popular item in the uk & northern europe as our spring/summers can be wet & cool.

    Yep, I remember 2005SS and still wear the olive Field Parka from that collection.

    Exactly. EG has become quite the Fairy Boy brand over the years, it's good to see some manly stuff in the mix.

    Spot the difference?

    yeh i cringe when i see some of the items released now. I remember buying an early ground jacket in chambray, great subtle jacket, now available to buy in "coco the clown" style. Also some of the blazer style jackets are sized for small children rather than a normal sized man. I'm a 40 chest 164lbs 5 '10' & large looks too small this s/s!!

    at the end of the day, it's a fashion brand. the vast majority of people wearing EG don't wear it to go hiking or cut down trees or whatever. collections change. this collections inspiration/theme was the beach, i believe, and it's a pretty damn cool collection. doesn't particularly appeal to what i want to wear, but it's still nice. floral prints are cool, yo.

    "fairy boy brand" lol. i bet you're into "style" and not "fashion," right?

    Daiki stated SS13 is his interpretation of surfwear (he's an avid surfer).

    Obviously, you're going to get some more EG-styled pieces that are consistent, through and through.

    What are these called?
    Andover - Black? Does anyone know the garment? Is it maybe Tropical Wool as that Charcoal version?
    Andover - Seersucker Stripe Navy/White?

    I'm so eager to get my first Andover this season and it's probably gonna be one of those two. Judging by the picture, the Nautical print, white/navy/red stripe, or the light grey one didn't really interest me.

    For a few years. Your point is the same as mine. It's another field jacket in olive, thus I'm wondering why there's so much excitement. Not saying its not nice, just not what I need for summer.

    Since I can see the Pacific Ocean when I walk outside my home, I'm embracing the S/S beach feel this season.

    Yes, the difference is this shirt has bright, shiny metallic threads. Very pretty manly.

    Japanese brands are using nylon more and more. I got the Post Overalls Nylon Mattalini for 80 bucks from Inventory (shows how poorly it did in the west since they were the only store carrying it and they had all sizes available when it hit 60% off). Haven't worn it yet, but it looks seriously amazing, especially layered over a sweater. Corona makes this one, which honestly, also looks great: http://www.lightbulb.jp/online/store/?p=21739
