Besides the Bedford Jacket, what do you guys feel are some essential (and/or highly versatile) EG pieces that you can put with almost any outfit?

Depends on your personal style.. I've never owned a Bedford after 10 years following the brand.

Here are some ideas though:

Spring/Summer:
Chambray Workshirt
Olive Fatigues
Camp Shirt
Atlantic Parka
Ghurka Short
Tropical Wool Andover Suits

Fall/Winter:
Parka (Madison/Highland etc)
CPO Shirt Jacket
Workshirts
Fatigues
Ground Pant
Wool Andover Suits

Looking at pics of Daiki Suzuki over the years, it seems that more than anything else, he’s always wearing some version of the military green fatigue pants. With short sleeve shirts, tweed sport coats, everything.

I’ve also just become a fan of their pretty minimalist BDU (m65-ish) jackets. You can rock those super-biz-cas over a shirt and tie, or in a more exaggerated EG context.

19cBD has ruined other bizcaz type shirts for me. If you’re looking for wardrobe staples you can’t go wrong with anything from EG Workaday. I’m a huge fan of the utility shirts, 41z chinos & fatigues (fuller fit than most mainline fatigues). For summer you can’t go wrong with the corduroy or ripstop fatigue shorts.

Workaday 5 pocket cord pants are also outstanding. Best made 5 pocket cords I have come across. They are extremely well made and are indestructible.

How you feel about the longer length when worn untucked? I really want to like it, but not sure if I can get down with it.

Are these still running small? My only pair is quite a few years old, and at the time they were notorious for being sized a full size small.
