fit is great actually. i think mine is actually the f/w 10 but gary and context included it in s/s11 because its really lightweight since its chambray so perfect for spring summer

mine is an XS even though i have the polka dot work shirt in S and the CPO in S. i had to size up this current season since its slimmer and arms are shorter so i dont know if this s/s11 engineers was changed from my chambray one

Haven't followed this season as much as last SS season, but I like a few of the prints on the shirts. But this Rough and Tumble on the other hand Sorry if it's been discussed, but who is behind this line? Nepenthes based? Most of their fabric patterns are fly as hell.

Hope this isn't already in English somewhere. Style Through Failure Daiki Suzuki – a designer based in New York, shot though and though with “Made in America.” We took a look at his wardrobe to find the secret of his relaxed, natural style. “As you wear your clothes down to the last, that’s when they become your own.” “Most people I know think I only wear green pants,” Suzuki laughs. He says about 90% of the time he wears army pants, a shirt and jacket. “They’re like jeans to me.” He first encountered army pants about 25 years ago. At a time when you could only get them in military specialty stores in Ueno’s Ameyoko shopping arcade, the store Suzuki worked at in Shibuya was the first to carry fatigues as fashion. “I wanted to introduce them to people, and so there was a time when I just stubbornly kept on wearing them. And while I was wearing them my body adjusted to it, and these olive-colored pants are such a useful item, at any rate I just decided to do it. It’s a neutral color that goes with anything. My style comes from discovering something and letting it mature from there.” Engineered Garments also puts out a slightly different style of army pants each season. Of the 50 pairs of he owns (including those by EG) about 10 are in everyday rotation. From those he decides what to wear depending on his mood in the morning or the weather. Like, “Today I’m in the mood for a deep green.” Most days they're combined with a cotton or linen shirt, tailored jacket and hooded parka. One of his fundamental beliefs is that “if you don’t buy the clothes yourself, you don’t know.” While he buys lots of clothing, there are only a few items he goes to on a day to day basis. The few things he likes he makes his own by wearing and washing – this is the Suzuki philosophy. “After you wash, say, a shirt however many times, in the process the color will fade, the stitches will get loose and frayed, buttons will pop off. I like being surrounded by these kinds of clothes. They’re mine.” Things he likes he buys over and over – same brand, same style. Birckenstock Bostons and New Balance sneakers are staple items he’s been wearing for years. “As things start to wear out, I buy new ones so that I can switch at any time. But I don’t repair things. I never get attached to any one item.” He doesn’t pay much attention to upkeep. Even jackets he just throws in the washing machine. Though he wears clothing made with great care and craftsmanship, he is strangely, and playfully, unconcerned with this. “The most important thing for my style is ‘ease.’ If I wear something that’s trying harder than I am, I feel uptight – like I’m the one being worn. Ease is the sense of being above your clothes.” Suzuki recommended some basic items for finding your own style. "For pants, chinos or jeans. For shirts, button downs. For jackets, navy. I think it’s best to start from trad items." Even Suzuki failed on the way to making his own style. It was just repeated trial and error. He says, “If you don’t fail you’ll never find your own style,” and it’s convincing. “In the process of buying and wearing a lot of clothes I learned little by little. There was a time when I thought it was cool to have a bandanna sticking out of every pocket,” he laughs. “Now when I think of that I get embarrassed, but if you don’t do embarrassing things you’ll never find your personal style.”

Interesting, thanks for the translation.
post #848 of 1080
Yes, big thanks for that. I tried reading it translated by google and it was a mess and made no sense. Appreciate being able to read it.

Can anyone comment on the difference in fit/cut between the Baker jacket and Andover? Had to return the dobby diamond print Baker as the double vent just wasn't working out with a snug fit. Think the single vent on the Andover will be better, but worried the fit/cut is complete different. Only obvious thing I can tell from pics is the collar looks like it sticks out a little more and the pockets. Any comments would be appreciated.
post #852 of 1080
Fit is the same for me in the body; with the vents, my baker actually has pleats, essentially, so those do box out a little bit when it's closed. But the single vent is a regular slit so it doesn't have that issue.
post #853 of 1080
This seasons Andover has extra lining or something in the pockets that make the waist flair out. At least on me... That's the major difference I've found. The Andover is a little more snug this season than the baker. I got my tailor to close the vents on all my jackets.. Not a fan of them, they always stick out on me

This has probably been asked quite a few times, but how does this season's Bedford fit? TTS? I could go with a medium last season, but I've been hearing it's a bit slim, yet I've stayed with my current size in workshirts (medium) so I don't know.
