    I know I do EG different than most here. EG to me is just easy to wear stuff for everyday things. I've never got into the more artistic side of the brand, but I love their everyday stuff.

    I'm the same, I have one EG 'suit' with another to be completed by the end of the year, but the majority of my EG gets worn in a more casual way and that's one of the things I love about the brand, it's so easy to just throw on and be really comfortable in. Some of the more 'out there' stuff that they produce is just ridiculous to me, despite the fact that I love the brand.

    Looks good.

    I like the versatility of a lot of EG - you can change one piece in an outfit and completely change the tone.

    Completely agree - I really admire how I can be casual rolling around in fatigues/ shirt/ tee/ Bedford/ etc. all day long but with one unexpected or crazy piece, the same thing can get really interesting. I think EG is at its absolute best, when the traditional stuff is paired with a bit of "What the f*** is that?" fabrics or pieces. And I think Mr. Suzuki /EG do that really, really well. At leas those fits in the lookbooks are those that I keep remembering long after each season.

    I think @Knight said it well: The only rule is no rule with EG. Wear early, wear often.

    :lol: True, the homespun is one that really stands out. Mine is just a blue one, and tends to disappear with something like khakis.

    Also, I want to be MoK for a day.

    What is the difference between the Andover and the Baker, besides the pockets? How do they differ in fit?

    I believe the Baker is more fitted. The Andover has a relatively substantial flare at the hips, has a single vent, and runs longer in the arms and in general length. The Andover, IMHO, is a godsend if you have broad shoulders and need something a little more "classic" for the office.

    edit: Also forgot to add, Baker is double-vented, which is a cut that works better for most. The Andover might be better for guys with larger backsides to avoid the "I have a tail of fabric" look that a double-vented jacket might give (from your backside pushing against the fabric).

    Amen to that. The other homespun from yesterday (Thanks @SirMeowly for coming up with that jacket/ pant combo) and a few things from this and last week's WAYWT.

    Okay, who's still stocking the olive honespun Bedfords?

    Or is that a silly question?

    Alex, it was Nepenthes special, together with the blue one. Give them a call to see if there are some left. I would bet though that they are sold out by now.

    To save anyone looking for an olive homespun Bedford in large a little time: I called NNY a couple weeks after they were released and larges were gone. They had an XL left at that time (I do t know, at least a month ago), but I would bet it has sold out since then.

    That said, if anyone with a large is looking to let it go, let me know.
