Engineered Garments Spring/Summer 2013, plus FWK - Page 66
Styleforum Top Picks
I just got off the phone with John at Jack Straw, here's some of the stuff he has available (not an exhaustive list, feel free to ask him if he's carrying anything else):
- the Andover in Red/White/Blue stripe, as well as matching Cinch pant and Vest
- Short Sleeve Western in White with Red/Black Dots (155 USD)
- Workshirt in Blue Madras with Red stripe (150 USD)
- Driver Jacket in Iridescent Khaki (385 USD)
- Penn Shirt in Olive (250 USD)
- Navy Patchwork Baker Jacket (250 USD)
All of this stuff was available in Medium, with the exception of the Driver Jacket, which John says runs big. He says he's 155 and wear 40R usually and the Small fits him well.
If you'd like to buy one of these items, call Jack Straw. I get the impression that they're a little too busy in the store right now to sort through emails.
Keep in mind that they accept returns even on sale items.
I usually wear medium otherwise nowadays. I thought about the medium to perhaps layer and wear into F/W but in general I try not to wear things not for its intended "purpose" or season.
I thought you did not like the jacket robin
When I emailed Nepenthes NY to inquire about the Calvary Twill Andover Jacket, they gave me this response:
"The Calvary Twill Andover we will not be stocking at our shop. You can try: Garbstore, Jack Straw, MAC, Nomad, Odin, Start, Stuart & Wright, The Bureau."
I'd give those guys a shot because they might have picked it up alongside the jacket. I know that MAC in SF doesn't have it, though. Alternatively, just email Nepenthes directly and they should be able to tell you who stocked it.
