    I wear a M and had to size up to a L in the Rebuild jacket; a S should fit you.

    Did anyone ever make a trade thread for EG/Nepenthes? I remember seeing the idea mentioned in the EG FW14 thread, but haven't really checked in enough to see if it became a thing. Kind of like what @noob made in SW&D classifieds for TOJ. Sorry if this has been asked already!

    what do you guys wear with needles/eg/r&t in terms of pants and shoes? esp shoes... so far I got visvim skags (might be too loud), apc x diemme chukkas grey. considering the viberg x haven derbies or sophnet boots. bostons go well with them too...

    there is also WM shoes which is quite eccentric

    Any XL or size 36 EG/WWM fans wanna trade some stuff? I'm really looking to pick up a Cruiser jacket (whipcord olive, but I would take anything at this point)

    Let's trade or something. I've got some rare EG just sitting because it doesn't really work for me aesthetically.

    @ambyance For pants, I wear either other Nepenthes brands or really casual CM stuff like Incotex – or Japanese stuff they sell at Bureau/Inventory (orSlow, Yaeca, etc.). Shoes – Alden's my preference but Trickers is solid. Again, Bureau/Inventory stock works well.

    Noob, is that actually a Needles shirt

    i've often struggled with my shawl collar rebuild BDU as it's quite slim on the shoulders and arms, making it difficult to layer over a lot of things (particularly sweaters) but was recently inspired to try it as mid layer and think it works well.

    No, it's from a brand called Koto, sold at Urban Outfitters. I found a pair of their shorts in a thrift yesterday, and I was struck not only by their quality, but by their explicit EG-ness. So I looked up the brand, and it seems they sort of rip from a few familiar faces... :D

    So they're sort of like like Shades of Grey but their stuff won't fall apart after three wears.
