Welcome to our second Sunday Shop update, the “Spending Summer in Shorts” edition.

In case you missed the first edition, Sunday Shop is a new, (usually) bi-weekly update of the small business side of EG, as well as a chance for me to share any good deals I come across, products I think are worth a look, and site updates I feel you should know about.

Been getting a lot of shorts-related questions lately, and considering it’s almost June, figured it would be an appropriate topic to address.

Fewer, but better: How buying cheap clothing kills people

Did you hear about the tragedy that happened in Bangladesh a few weeks ago? If not, read a bit about it here, and a more personalized account of it (and other similar events) here.

Pretty sad, right? Every article has varying numbers, but the final death toll is estimated to be more than one thousand people.

How often do we pay attention to where our stuff is made?

Probably not that much, if at all.

Sportin’ In The Heat, part II: Making the khaki sport coat work for you

May 15, 2013

Without a doubt, a khaki sport coat is the second most versatile jacket you could possibly own. Second only to a navy version, of course.

This is especially true in the warmer months, when you may want to wear lighter colors.

Navy’s great and all (and it’s pretty much always appropriate), but sometimes you just have to switch it up.

By the end of this article, you’ll know exactly what kind of jacket (or suit) to look for, where to find one, when to wear it, how to wear it, and what to wear it with.

Pretty straight-forward, right?

Here we go!

Welcome to the first Sunday Shop update. I wanted to send this note from time to time; possibly every Sunday, though most likely every other Sunday or so.

I think these updates will be fun; they’ll be quick, informal peeks at the inner workings of EG, and the small business I’m building to support the rest of the site. In case you weren’t aware, there’s an actual human behind your screen, making sure everything is running smoothly :)

I’ll also use this time to let you know of any good deals I come across on the web, products I think are worth a look, and any site updates I feel you should know about.

May 9, 2013

The weather is starting to warm up (at least in my hemisphere), and hopefully the same goes for where you are.

Even if you’re on the opposite side of the world, there’s a good chance you’re experiencing a weather transition.

Today’s Ask the Readers question is: How are you transitioning your wardrobe to accommodate for the changing seasons?
