    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    besides a few places like peasant, are there any places to look at/ purchase EG stuff online. (i'm talking more than 1-2 jackets) preferably most of their line. wanna see all their stuff
    The people at EG do not really want anyone selling their goods online. There are a couple of people "grandfathered" in. I guess there was a time when someone else was selling the line where they allowed some accounts to sell the goods online. They said they do not think it is fair to now tell those people they cannot. They are not allowing any new accounts to do it however.

    Good choice on shoes in the first pic and everything's put together well in the second.

    one thing i like about EG is that all of the thrift items i have bought over the years fit in nicely with the whole aesthetic. I recently posted a outfit in waywt that had only an EG scarf but could have been seen as all EG to the untrained. I love that.

    EG is really versatile and very wearable. Mixes and matches with just about anything.

    I had quite the EG layering going on last night. It was dry here in Portland, but kinda chilly and High School Football was on the agenda. No pics, but I'll see if I can re-create it sometime.

    Long sleeve waffle knit, flannel, EG Shawl Collar Cardi buttoned up, EG Bedford with collar up and all buttoned up, EG Plaid scarf.

    Now I understand fully why EG is meant to be layered. I felt I was channeling my inner Daiki.

    I don't get EG much.

    So a Japanese guy creates American workwear-inspired clothes to sell to the Japanese (who love the stuff) but meanwhile Americans are buying it as well?

    That's like Mexicans eating at Taco Bell.

    I must be missing something.

    ^ There's a whole thread answering that question, but the basic appeal is quality, details, and country of origin (USA). The cult status and singularity of the brand's vision also helps.

    As far as I can tell EG is also more vintage American workwear inspired than contemporary. It's not always that easy to find quality pieces similar to what EG produces in the US anymore, even if the styles do originate from here.

    The quality, fit and materials are superior to the American brands that serve as inspiration, with the only real alternatives arriving at a much higher price point.
