Engineered Garments Fall / Winter 2013 - Page 75

post #1111 of 1716
I'll likely be up in NYC next weekend and plan to stop by Nepenthes (really looking forward to checking out the store in person). Any other spots carrying good EG gear in NYC to check out (Bloomingdale's, Barney's maybe)?
post #1112 of 1716
Nepenthes will, obviously, be your best bet. Odin carries some EG too, including some exclusive shirts this season which might make them worth a visit if any of their exclusives are of interest to you. I'm heading to NYC for the week of Thanksgiving and definitely plan on hitting up both spots.

In NYC, checkout Inventory next to Extra (post overalls) and see Gentry in Brooklyn.

Has anyone tried on the cinch back pants this year? From the measurements on The Bureau's page they look really slim.

They run true to size around the waist, but are a narrow/tapered fit down the leg. Definitely slim.

I have a pair in olive reversed sateen. I found them tight around my calves, but with some wear, they seemed to have stretched out.

I definitely miss the fit of cinch pants from a couple of years ago...

I might be interested in this over parka on ebay right now.

 

Does anyone know from which collection it is ? And if there's a zip on the back or side (like on the current model) as the seller is apparently not willing to answer my questions.

 

thanks

My experience with cinch anything from EG, is to buy a size up and cinch the waist to get the legs to fit proper.

I've both shorts and pants, and have tried on several others as well. Matt pant from this season is also a good example. size 30 won't fit, sz 32 after i pull the side tabs is a good fit. I actually almost like the matt pant.

I think they fit pretty much the same as last fw, the noticeable change (slimmer cut) came around 2010 iirc.

There's a cinch pant in olive reverse sateen? how in the f@ck did I miss that...

IME, cinch pant is a slim strait cut with a slight tapper from knee to hem, its tts for the waist but rather slim in the top block as well (hips), so if you go tts and have a big ass or big ass thighs then you'll either get mad pocket flair or your hands simply will not fit properly in the front pockets while wearing them, for those cases I agree with jo3b to size up and cinch down the waist, but for slimmer (flat ass) normal thigh peeps I'd stay tts unless you purposely want to go for the looser/baggy fit.

I'd certainly back this up, represents my experience (hence selling the 28s below, hint, hint). The cinch pants fit in the waist but were too tight in the thigh. I don't have necessarily remarkably big thighs but am a distance runner so they are a little larger than normal. Having said that, I really think most should go up a size and cinch 'em.

In the same boat size wise but went with the 28 as I use them most as a suit pant, have normal thighs and prefer the slimmer silhouette, but if I were to wear them as casual pants alone I could easily size up to the 30 and cinch them down, just really dislike the bunching + saggy ass effect due to cinched up extra material in the back.

Think its fw 11.  Don't think it has a zipper, though I could be wrong

A few online stored stocked these, including TBB and maybe Inventory. Good luck trying to find a 30 or 32 though! They feel completely different to SS13 version of the trousers. Thicker but with a loose weave to the fabric, but quite a hard wearing material. I reckon this will be something I will wear for many many years to come and still look great.

I fall right into this category ! shog[1].gif

I tend to wear cinch pants a bit higher on the waist with a belt and button up shirt tucked in. I tend to leave the rear cinch firm but not tight despite my less-than-full seat. Cinch pants I wear fitted (not tight) since the cut of the pants lends itself to more "smart casual" look.

Compare this to the Fatigue Pants which are much looser all around and tend to wear them just below the waist with a couple of folded cuffs to site nicely over shoes.
