Can anyone ID this EG top? Seems slightly more substantial than a regular button down, and with more features, e.g., the criss-cross yoke and the flap of fabric inside the chest. (Also curious if anyone knows the proper names of those features.) Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that's the "Field Shirt" from spring/summer 2016-ish. I had one in the reverse sateen. Great shirt.

not exactly the same but the Warrick shirt from SK Manor Hill is in the same ballpark, with some great warmer weather fabrics. Dominic, who runs the label, worked at EG around that time.

I wouldn't call that a defect. It's seen on some pants, depends on manufacturer, style, material, etc. Daiki has a tendency to include "personal touches" in his designs, what could be considered manufacturing faults but are nonetheless intentional. And he uses the garment industry in NY, which doesn't have the same sorta standards of precision as say Japan. Which is part of the whole Ametora appeal

looks like someone working at the NY garment district got too chatty with coworkers and misaligned the stitching there.

what other brands work well with EG?
Vans-style slip-on shoes, RRL and Polo, most boutique heritage-type brands like Garbstore…

Most of the blazers are so versatile, they’ll probably go with anything. I especially like them with beach-y stuff (vintage for me — though $900 Mr Porter camp shirts would look good, too).

I think Frizmworks and Uniform Bridge sit very naturally with EG and are also a bit easier on the wallet.
Other brands that I think work well but in a more low key way - Comoli, Sassafras, 1ST PAT-RN as well as any heritage brands as mentioned above
Blue Blue Japan, Story MFG and Sillage also sit well and could change things up in an interesting way.

It kinda depends on the thread of EG you want to pull on. Gonna try to categorize recs given so far into different paths

There’s the Japanese riffs on Americana ranging from conservative to wild (orslow, post, Kapital, visvim, most of the nepenthes sibling brands-s2w8, needles), or stay in the US w ralph and polo/RRL

very close to the above is the functional clothing, work wear vibes (orslow/post again, frizmworks, uniform bridge, garbstore, arpenteur)

textile driven garments (story mfg, blue blue Japan)

modern gorp-y (and wander, snow peak, nanamica)

personally wear my EG with a lot of 3sixteen + 18 east

I suggest taking a look at the EG stockists, browse brands that sit alongside EG and get a feel for what you vibe with.
