Engineered Garments FW 11 - Page 13

post #181 of 1245
Has anyone tried the Brookline jacket yet? I´d like to know how suitable it is for cold weather. It looks quite warm due to the quilting, but maybe not...

I tried it and find it very tempting (expensive thou', since it costs the same as the hyper-warm duffle coat). I think it'd be very comfortable down to the upper 30s, not much below that temperature. The quilting really isn't that thick.

BTW, space shirt, as mentioned before, is a Nepenthes NY production (I think timpoblete mentioned that Angelo helps designing that line) and it's available in the store now: http://nepenthesnewyork.blogspot.com/ I kinda find it hideous, but interesting.

And oh... really hard to define "hipster" in NYC. Big plastic sunglasses frames+some kind of ballcap+Vans+APC denim+Deep V rims on stripped down fixed gear? No, I don't see EG on those. I have to say... the only occasion where I get a kick out of seeing people playing hard with all these Japanese brands I like is at Nepenthes parties/art opening. People should take pictures at those... some serious steez on display.

EG x Beams 35th Anniversary 'crazy' fatigues. Mixing elements from their various pants in BDU sateen:

I love some of the pants, but they seem very relaxed fitting, what is the slimmest EG pant?

Exactly. Some of the pants look like they came from Wally world. I can understand not being super skinny, but this baggy is kinda of ridiculous and looks like shit IMO.

I agree! especially some of the wool pants, they look like so comfy but you could mistake them for sweatpants cause of how baggy they are.

I always wondered if any cats on here actually liked the relaxed fit on the pants; because that's a look that I isn't widely illustrated on SF from what I've seen. Personally, it's icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif for me, but most people think I'm pretty far out (in terms of style) anyways.

I have a pair of the SS11 USN pants and the fit is pretty relaxed on them (though not downright baggy as some of the pants I've seen in EG lookbooks). I like it....maybe not as an everyday style but as an alternative to my more fitted options (EPs Rivet and RRL Officers chinos). They are great with the cuffs rolled up for casual use in the summer with a pair of mocs and a lightweight button up shirt. My pair is in khaki but I find myself really wanting a green pair as well, even though my Rivet chinos are in OD ripstop already.

I have a pair of the painter paints in wool -- as you might suspect they're really comfortable but just this far away || from baggy. I've always liked preferred slimmer fit pants but they look good with brown boots and a white oxford. I've tried on the USN pants twice and could never pull the trigger -- I felt a little like I was at a rave in Manchester in 1991.

The desert pant, I believe, is the slimmest fit -- and I'd call it a straight fit. Slim/skinny isjust not Daiki's aesthetic, I guess. Some of the random suiting style trousers over the years might be just as slim.

There slimmest fit was always the cinch pants as far as i know. Daiki designed some pretty slim pants for Woolrich, in particular the Ranger pants ( I own quiet a few of them and love them. I didn't get this seasons SS 11 edition because they where just too slim for the NY summer heat IMO.)
This summers USN are one of my favorite pants ever. Although not slim, they are not baggy at all. They shrunk a bit after a few washes and fit closer to the body now. Light weight and comfortably and classic! I have the navy ones and wish I had the green ones too.

+1 on the cinch pant being the slimmest fitting pant. Too slim for me..
I have the SS11 USN and that is more of a regular straight fit imo. The FW10 painter pant is a little bit looser. Both are very nice.

Also, Oi Polloi has some new stuff up now.
