    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.

    Hey Guys,

    I thought I would start this thread on Workaday because it might get missed in the standard EG thread.
    I have decided to start the Workaday program which will be an ongoing selection of items being offered by EG under this label.
    We are going to start slow with this and build as I see interest. We will start with the Olive Fatigue Pant in sizes XS/30, S/32, M/34, L/36.They will be $185.00 w/ free shipping in USA. I have ordered a fair amount of these seeing that at the moment we will be the only retailer in the US. Odin will jump on board with their Fall/ Winter offerings.
    If we get enough interest in other items from this collection, we will then go forward with them. Hoodies for instance have been requested but I will not buy these unless we get some commitments from you. Meaning pre-orders!

    Here are the styles offered for Workaday,

    Workaday Thermal Lined Hoody
    Colors - Navy, Black, Grey

    Workaday 19th BD
    Colors - White Oxford, Blue Oxford, Blue x White Candy Stripe Oxford, Red x White Candy Striped Oxford

    Workaday Fatigue Pant
    Colors - Olive Reversed Sateen

    Workaday Tapered Jean
    Color - Indigo Selvage Denim

    Workaday Tapered Cord
    Color - Tan, Black, Maroon, Brown
    Poly Cotton Cord

    Workaday Overnighter Bag
    Color - Natural, Navy

    Workaday Tote Bag
    Color - Natural, Navy

    Let me know by calling me at 617-547-2067. The pants should be here next week.

    Gary

    Not that I am aware of but I think Robin posted some pics up in the S/S 09 thread. Items that Bureau had purchased. I will check with Angelo about Pics. If he has something, you can be sure that I will bring them to you.
    I know that there are some pics of the Fatigue pant floating around but right now I do not have the time to go looking for them. Anyone!

    Here are a few fall preview pictures of F/W workday stuff from the bureau.

    I like the look, price is too high for me because i actually work in my work wear clothes so they wouldn't last more than 6 months to a year.

    What is the difference between Workaday and regular EG?

    Pricepoint? Inspiration? Fit?

    There is really no difference in models or quality compared to EG. EG decided that there were particular items in their collections that were always in demand and they felt that it was a good idea to included these as an ongoing offering. I am going to try to encourage. them to include the Blue Chambray Work Shirt.

    so Workaday is more like permanent offerings rather than seasonal pieces

    I'm hoping today! We have not received our UPS yet. Stay tuned.

    I am accepting pre-orders and sizes are already being spoken for, so everyone, get yours in if you desire a pair. Thanks!

    Gary

    Here's a higher res shot of the details of the Workaday Fatigue Pants in Reversed Sateen (via Explorer): [​IMG] I have these from 2 winter's ago and these are certainly a staple in my wardrobe. The version I have though has a small flapped coin pocket within the left front pocket (literally smack dab in the middle), wonder if these have the same detail.
