Not digging the baracuta collab stuff, leave that brand alone for a little bit imo

Junya did the definitive one years ago anyway when they updated the G4 (especially in that dark green colour Cool )

There are some very fruity pieces, even for EG. I have one or two myself from them, but definitely prefer when EG just do great basics like fatigue shorts and the Bedford/Andover lines. Also, Daiki just likes pockets that bit too much.

Who the fuck wants six pockets with flaps on the front of a shirt. Not feeling the little chest straps either.

looking to see if anyone has much experience with recent versions of the Workaday utility jackets.
I used to have an XS a few years ago and recall the fit being fairly traditional but looking at measurements for the versions available currently they all seem to be incredibly long - approx 29.5 inches back length for the Small.
Fits look pretty normal in any model photos I can find but any help appreciated from knowledgeable fukers

I’ve got a cotton 2019 workaday (size l) - the body fits totally normal but the sleeves are quite noticeably long. They practically reach my knuckles if I don’t wear them cuffed.

Is there a Needles thread? can't find it if so. Anyway how do Needles narrow track pants fit? I'm somewhere between a 34 and 36 and not sure whether to go for a large or xl

Get a Large.

I normally wear large in most clothes and have XL track jacket and L narrow pants

Totally unrelated - @MattC, I take it you picked up that Trunk comp (as in your avatar). Already got most of the stuff but been enjoying it.

Yeah, likewise I'm enjoying it - the Shrigley artwork is great too.

What's a good price for a workaday utility jacket? See there's some sales on at the moment, do they ever see sub £150?

I think I paid £135 for mine but that was a few years ago.

£150 is a decent price for it. I wear mine all the time.

Whats the sizing on them MattC? Are they deliberately oversized?

They are quite big / boxy but I went TTS and sometimes turn up the cuffs.

I've got 3 utility jackets (olive sateen, black/navy cord combo, brown cord) in L that are a lil too small for me after filling out a bit. I'm looking to replace them all in XL if there's any about (not after the printed versions).

Have EG stopped the Workaday line though? Seem a lil harder to come by nowadays.
