Engineered Garments Spring/Summer 2013, plus FWK - Page 43

I would call Nepenthes NY as well. My friend had a little pull in the back of his Chauncey shirt and they ended up replacing it (but were also considering fixing it). Definitely worth a call.

Abdaniel, reach out to both Independence and NepenthesNY.

 

They're good/understanding of this and will definitely help you out. This is definitely one of the rarer times I've seen a mess up like this.

I have a pair of this seasons fatigue pants they are really expensive & i'd be pi$$ed off if they fell apart. This seasons are very lightweight but thats what you want in the spring summer months. Over the years i've had to sew on existing buttons or use the spare button on most of my workshirts. The 19th century shirts & tab collar shirts use small standard buttons which have been fine. Also had shrinkage in the arm length on workshirt chambray fabric with cold wash hang dry & they arn't great for rolling sleeves with the re-inforced fabric at the elbow.

I wash at 30-40°C and hang dry, they shouldn't shrink. I think some shirts might have shrunk a little little bit in the arms or so, but nothing serious.

One miner shirt shrank alot, but it accidentally ended up in the tumble drier for like 3 hours. Don't do that! shog[1].gif

does anyone know who's stocking the Drivers jacket this season?

 

theres one up on Oi Polloi at the mo (http://www.oipolloi.com/engineered-garments-driver-jacket-light-blue-cavalry-twill) but I'd like to see it in another colour...

I'm interested in the orange iridescent chambray round collar shirt. The iridescent part scares me a little though, not having seen it in person. Is it really iridescent? Is it shiny? The pics I've found online don't make it look that way so I'm not sure.

Fafff.... MAC in SF is stocking the Driver in three different fabrics. If I remember correctly, they have that same sort of "French" blue as Oi Polloi, a grey iridescent light weight chambray, and one other, but I'm blanking right now.

Slide13: I saw an iridescent chambray scarf up close, but it was a blue color, and it was pretty subtle.

Is there the iridescent khaki perhaps? Do you recall the price? Thanks.

I don't remember if it was khaki or not... price was right around $375-400

Thanks for the info, may decide to give the orange a shot. I think Independence has, but they don't have any of their SS EG online yet I guess.

The coup de grace came, with just a little over a week of ownership, when I sat awkwardly on a chair and completely ripped the fabric by the back pocket. 


Pity because I really do love their stuff, but with fabric selections like this, I don't know how they call really their garments "engineered". I picked them up from Independence in Chicago. Any recommendations on what I should do?

Wondering how these pants fit before damage occurred?

Was it a tight/firm fit aropund your waist and thighs?

El QUaG --

No, not at all. They are trimmer that what one might normally expect from a fatigue pant, but still a good amount of room in the waist/thigh region. I still used a belt to keep them up. The cut was perfect for what I had in mind (summer in Florida) which only added to the frustration when they pooped out on me.

 

I want to thank everyone for their suggestions and interest. Just as an update, I have been trying to get in touch with Independence but still have yet to hear back from them. Will call NepenthesNY tomorrow though.
