    @Drinkwaters Does the homespun fabric have a bit of stretch to it? I'm more curious about the fatigue pants than the bedford.

    Gary, don't know if I missed it, but is the grey homespun cotton or wool?

    This is growing on me after a few glasses of wine. The proof will be in the pudding: EG is one of the strongest SS brands (Which we LA boys really like). And, given the fact that SS15 was a terrible lookbook but very decent season, this might as well turn out great.

    Don't understand the comments about this being "too out there". It is probably one of the "tamest" lookbooks in a long, long time ...

    I agree. After lusting for so many everest ready FW pieces I can't wait to see all the pieces of weather appropriate EG. As always, the many familiar pieces and fabrics are perfect for slowly putting together a collection.

    Agree with @mbaum, this should be a great season for LA. Loving that homespun fabric, and I actually like the shorter length on the shop coats.

    Hmm, will have to check out the shorter shop coats this year. I hope they don't look like long sport coats.

    from what we've seen thus far it's "good," but doesn't seem exceptional. haven't seen any crazy drool worthy fabrics/patterns. the whale pattern is a little gimmicky, imo.

    it's always an exciting time when a new season starts to hit retailers! hope I can try a few things on while in nyc this weekend - also hoping for a few good fw15 scraps still left hanging at nyy!

    question regarding tropical wool - anyone own a jacket, pants or both? rock the full tropical wool suit in the warmer months - is it significantly more comfortable (in terms of overheating) than EG's cotton "suits?" how does it wear (similar to linen, in that it wrinkles easily?), does it require more frequent trips to the dry cleaners? is it a tough material or should one avoid commuting via bicycle with tw trousers :)

    muchas gracias, amigos!

    Tropical wool is seriously one of the best fabrics EG uses. I own the tropical wool Andover and it is a favorite of mine - definitely more comfortable in warm weather than cotton and surprisingly wrinkle-resistant. It is also warm enough that you can use it in the winter as long as you have heavy outerwear, and because the fabric is sturdy it will not look out of place in the cold in the same way that linen might. It is also great indoors when the heat is jacked up.

    I definitely would not wear it while biking. If you are patient, BNWT versions often appear on Yahoo Japan and Rakuten.
