Engineered Garments FW 2012 - Page 84
Just got my first EG pieces after months of research, the whipcord Bedford from Context (which I was pleasantly surprised to find is much more olive than the khaki pictured on the site) and greay plaid wool Andover from Nepenthes. Sale prices were amazing and now I'm hooked!
For those who own wool Andovers, do you find that the flared fit smooths out a bit as the pocket bags soften? Currently it fits absolutely perfectly in every dimension save for a bit of hip flare which I attribute to the hunting influenced cut.
I'd say yes, the bottom pocket openings and flaps are pretty stiff initially and do soften a bit and smooth out with use.
But imho the body length of the jacket also contributes to the flared appearance, I've had several wool andovers since FW08 and the longer ones always appear less flared than the shorter ones with up to a 2" difference in length, I shit you not.
somebody kop this in L, not sure why it's still available
