Anyone own the fatigue olive reverse sateen pants sold at gentry? I want to get into eg and after getting some loose repro denim these seem like a good pair of pants that could work in a basic wardrobe

Presumably it's in black and white because it's an eyebleed collection with zero synergy between the pieces.

they've done an initial b&w release of the look book for the past few seasons, not sure why people are so caught off guard. looks real good to me, though.

some thoughts on fw15

warning lots of pics from the collection

Spoiler:
Image

The boots here are absolutely standout. The pants remind me of the AW13 reversible joints and I have a feeling the price will be reasonable and also go into sale. I normally hate the shine you get with the nylons he uses but it's been appealing to me more and more. I think the first piece I saw was the nylon taslan bedford in ss13, and I've really been loving the pullover from SS15 in pictures even though the price is absurd for taslon nylon.

Image

Great texture on what's looking to be a cotton (denim) pant similar to FW14. Cut looks good as the crotch is looser than I've seen them use in the past. The return of a shawl or something else? Not really sure what's going on there.

Image

heavier homespun bedford! bit disappointed that it looks like there won't be much roll. Hope there's no elbow patches as that motif can go away. pockets near the ankle! I think I've seen these pants in the past...

Image

Intriguing midlayer in what appears to be the poly polkadot they used in fw13 and nice to see their take on double breasted jackets return for the first time in years outside of japan -- love the straight hem on it and the roll on the lapel. Looks to be a midweight wool (uniform serge?) that i have high hopes for

Image

bib hoodie again, bit longer than the past it seems? cool heavyweight cotton pants, liking how they fall


Image

High hopes for these pants, but expect to see them bought and pinrolled heavily on the internet

Image

someone said fisherman pants and i'll bet they're on point as they used them heavily in ss15. long bib or short hoodie in a wool knit? either way i'm really hating that texture

Image

Field parka!!

Image

Another in a really great fabric, excited to see it

Image
mid 00's jizz, feelin it

Image
Longer bomber patterned jacket, no ribbing is a huge selling point. might be the driver jacket again, though


Image

Secret standout look of the collection

i hate to keep promoting styleforum on here as i love and respect care-tags as a standalone community, but we starting up an eg trade thread on styleforum: http://www.styleforum.net/t/452402/the- ... st_7658570

also, i totally lack self control and bought a grey andover off yjp.

@bela fw outerwear > ss outwear though.

turns out it's the "quilted" andover from fw09. pretty excited to get it, 09 was a rad collection and the quilting should be great for winter. just crossing my fingers that it's not too puffy to be worn under a parka or something.

Woah woah woah woah woah.

Spring summer outerwear can be worn in the winter underneath another coat. Plus if it's a blazer it can be worn indoors year round. FW outerwear can't be worn in the summer and it can't be worn indoors unless you live and work in an ice cave.

For me it has to be spring summer outerwear

i agree, in part. my other fw eg jackets (wool serge andover, wool flannel hartford) aren't too heavy to be layered or worn inside. honestly, that's the biggest thing I don't like about the wool bedford i'm selling. it's a beautiful thick fabric but is more of a piece of outerwear than a mid layer.

this is why i sold the shawl robe thing that everyone loved. too scratchy and hot to wear around the house in a luxe lounging kind of way, and yet because of the flare it only looked good (on me) open, so pretty much pointless in genuine cold weather conditions. also worse than useless in the rain.

This? I understand your gripes with it but it's actually one of my favorite pieces. I use it as a midlayer outdoors. That plus a coat and I'm good in the NY winter. I can't wear it all day indoors but my office is kinda cold so I usually wear it for a few hours. I don't think it was really intended for any kind of all weather use, right? It's just a thick wool cardigan and I'd wear it like any other thick cardigan. Will probably get some wear as outer layer in the late winter/early spring. I don't find it scratchy if I'm wearing along sleeve shirt under it but it is unbearable with short sleeves.

glad you're enjoying it, i can imagine it fitting in well with your style. perhaps london is too temperate for heavy layers like that, it rarely gets below freezing here. i'm a very sensitive flower when it comes to scratchiness which was probably the deciding factor

x-posting from WAYWT.

Came across this Engineered Garments Nail Apron. Holler @randomthought. Think its a cool layering piece, gives me tons of pockets, kind of looks just like a vest when under a jacket. It's kind of an odd length tho.

Xpost from the collars thread. Boring work fit/potato camera. On the bedford it says cold wash and dry clean. Any preferred method of care?

any clothes i care about i just handwash cold and hang dry (or lay flat if wool/cashmere). rare to find a dry cleaner who knows what they are doing

I think for everything EG is known for, graphic T's would be dead last if it wasn't for their random CYC made sweat stuff.

bit late but i feel this'd look great with a longer shirt underneath; usual EG kind of layering idea i'd say. wear kind of flouncy/not tied down so tightly

new purchase, cotton ripstop bedford. i've never nerded out about EG but i am starting to appreciate what they do more and more. on this jacket the weave gives it a very artisanal feel, and a nice depth of colour.

I just bought some eg workaday jeans and I'm eagerly waiting for them to arrive. I guess it's kind of late for this, but has anyone owned any EG denim before? Thoughts/opinions?

I fell in love with this 6.5oz navy flat twill Bedford to the point that I'm almost willing to pay retail for it. This has been exacerbated by the fact that it's pretty much sold out everywhere (including every jp stockist I've checked). I only know of one stockist that has it in my size (S), and they've marked it up quite a bit. What's my best bet for getting one of these? I found one on y!jp, but it's too small :(
