    Just bought an almost-as-new Salmon People peacoat at a very reasonable price on Gr*iled. Now feeling worried it can't be as good as it seems...

    This is not Engineered Garments, but these clothes are from a label within the Nepenthes umbrella called Arts in Education (AiE) headed by Miyamoto Kenta who references skate, punk, and workwear aesthetics in his collections. Really popular in Japan. I'm wear the AW17 Zebra Parka + Pants and the velour game vest.

    I recently bought some EG clothes, so I can come and flex it here in due time. Among which, 2 bedfords. One lacks one of it's removable button. Is there a place where we can buy those by the unit? It's not a big deal to replace it, but I would if I could.

    I’m sure you could contact the folks at Nepenthes NY.

    I contacted Nepenthes nyc with the same question a while back and they said they didn't keep spares. I guess it makes sense since they change from jacket to jacket, season to season, etc. But you could always see if you have better luck than I did...

    This is a very subjective question, but I just need a nudge one way or the other -
    To those who own/have owned both the Ground and Fatigue pants: which one do you like better? I'm looking at both in the same color and I understand that they have differences but I like them both. And I don't need both. What say you?

    It really depends on what you want out of them. Fatigues are more relaxed, ground pants are slimmer with a nice taper.

    Does the shop offer returns? If so, I'd buy them both so you can them on.

    Your best bet is probably to go into your local sewing/craft/fabric store and have a look around. Ask for "butcher's buttons" or buttons with a metal shank and ring.

    Agree with @jlchau. Try both on and see what you like. I find Ground Pants to essentially be EG's version of regular ol' chinos, which is fine, but the Fatigues are a little more visually interesting with the external pockets and wider hem.
