Barking Irons tees retail at ~$60 +/- 5, pretty much everywhere (webstores, Barneys, whereever). Don't know what the U&I guys are trying to pull. They are wrong about the Engineered Garments pieces, btw. Every piece I've tried on has been sized smaller this year. I mean, they are not Dior slim, but the jackets are definitely more fitted than the same models (albeit in different fabrics) than last year. And the hoodie I have sitting on my chest (I use a chest instead of drawers) is definitely slim, as is the EG shawl collar sweater in the eco wool. Some boutique owners and salespeople are great. Some believe that you pay a premium to be condescended to. Okay, I've derailed my own thread. Oh, Azalea buyers: Carry Engineered Garments jackets, especially the field jackets and Engineers jackets in herringbone. We love them. We sold out Steven Alan (pretty much all sizes) in less than a week.
