nom de guerre - Page 3

In the words of Article 9, you forever renounce any claim to poverty as a soverign individual. And man, that old and busted EG engineer's jacket in the corner... who needs that thing anymore? You never really liked it anyway. Might as well get rid of it, now.

FOk, what size did you get again M? I demand pics asap. Btw, I almost blew 170 on a superfly charcoal fedora with light blue plaid last night.

Fok.

you know what i always like to do after i drop a boatload of money on an item? find the nearest neiman marcus or saks liquidation store and walk around there for 10 minutes and just look at price tags. when you see that neiman marcus, at their rock bottom, charges say $700 for their house label overcoats, you don't feel too bad about paying a pretty penny for something much nicer.

Congratulations Fok. You have been thinking about that M65 for a long time. It's great that you stepped up to something you really like. After awhile you will forget about the $$ and will have sweet jacket. Plus, you will not have to post that it in the regretting non-purchases thread.

Yes, it is lined in what must be polyester (you don't get cupro at the under $800 mark, generally), and the wool is significantly thinner than the Engineered Garments boiled wool. Put it this way. The Engineers jacket would be warm on the coldest night in Montreal, the M65 would be warm on the coldest day in Boston, but not so much in Montreal.

Sorry Aresthusa, I love the EG jacket. Completely different looks, you know. DDML is the one you should be pissed at. He has bought 2 different EG jackets already this season.

Yes, medium. Fits perfectly over my w+H hoodies. Fitted, but not tight. Great shoulder line and the shape of the torso is perfect.

if you think that it'll be warm enough for the coldest night in boston, then i might get this. do you think that it's up to snuff with the w&h m65, from what you've seen of it on sf?

The feel is somewhat different. Constructionwise, I would say that the Wings & Horns M65, which actually retails at the $600-700 range, is better. The trims (like the heavyweight double zip riri) is definitely a step up from the Nom de Guerre. I've never seen the Wings & Horns M65 in person, but from all the other pieces I've seen, the stitching job will be better too. Material wise, they are probably about the same, though the wool NdG will definitely be warmer.

I think that the NdG will definitely be warm enough for me[ on the coldest Boston night, but take into account that I grew up in Canada and used to mountaineer, and have never buttoned our zipped up a jacket all the way in my 3 winters here yet. And that in my first winter, I merely layered a boiled wool jacket under my cotton moleskin Costume National jacket and called that winterwear. Stel's only has one full size run, and they are apparently blowing out of all the NdG stuff, so I would make a move, and soon, if you are planning to. The NdG store in NYC is not doing shipping, from what I know, right now, and AFAIK, none of the other stores have that piece in yet. Ron Herman is not carrying it at all.

interesting...does one full size run mean that they have a full range of sizes s-xl, but one item (m65) per size? if so, i should try and make it down soon.

They only had one of each size, yes. Not just in the M65, in *all* the Nom de Guerre Outerwear (they had three different models.)

Cheers,

Fok.

Sorry for the dumb question but what is a cut and sew t-shirt? Like a tee that's assembled by hand rather than a sewing machine? Does it have to be hand dyed and hand screen printed too? I am not following what makes cut and sew and what doesn't.
post #45 of 140
cut + sew refers to garments that are designed and cut based on a spec as opposed to using a standard premade garment such as american apparel, gilden, AAA, etc...
