I really enjoy EG's eclectic and slightly trashy approach to patterns and styling. They do floral prints virtually every season and I like how they clash with the more workwear or military-inspired hand-in-pocket stuff. However the specific prints are usually too stylised for me, from 1970s looking flowers to paisley to vague watercoloury patterns.
This one is a straightforward chintz, with no really strong connotation other than being twee as fuck. The colours will work well with lots of stuff I have. I don't think it's objectively an awful shirt but I understand why some (most?) wouldn't like it. I think it would look terrible with a blazer and tan brogues, but worn really casually in place of an oxford will look cool.

Anyone bought a Needles Rebuild 7 Cut Flannel?
Think they look cool, just not sure if I'd actually wear it that much, or would potentially just look unkempt in an unintentional way.

Are some of the dudes wearing mismatched 991’s?
Like the mismatched vans collab?

Trying to resist some stuff in the sale right now but need to cut down. Know when your like “well it’s really well made and will last forever so it’s worth it should invest in it” then you end up with 10 EG work shirts and only really wear the first one you bought.

That outfit is ridiculous but there’s plenty to like in the collection, collarless overshirt looks good, specially in the hickory stripe
This season has been their strongest for a while imo. I’m waiting for Bureau to go half price, seem to be reducing in 10% increments. If their stock levels are as their website suggests I’ll happily hold tight.

Thoughts on the cagoule shirts? Worth the money?
