So I was up in NYC and only got the chance to visit Nepenthes NYC and love the store and service was awesome, guys were really nice and helpful. I was pressed for time though so didn't get a chance to try everything I was eying this season (not too mention they were sold out of a lot of the smaller sizes I needed). I ended up returning the shawl knit and picking up the Charcoal Windowpane LDT coat and Burgundy Workaday Thermal Lined Hoodie instead. Wanted so many other things, but had already spent a good deal for the NYC weekend so had to hold back. Will post up some fits when I can for anyone who is interested.

Not sure if you noticed yet, but a member posted pics a few posts up from yours. I think a fair bit of US stockists picked it up if you check around (Odin, Context, Gentry, Nepenthes NYC off top of my head). Also, I just picked it up this weekend in the charcoal colorway, I really like this one. Fits true to your typical size in tops/coats in my opinion. I take a small in just about everything and took the small in this one for a nice fit and also a bit of room for layering too.

Others reported on their experience and I tried them on in person this weekend and I have to say as someone who has enjoyed EG for a number of years, but has a slimmer build and preference for slimmer fits, this is the first season I love the fit. They are definitely slimmer than past seasons, but not skinny by any means unless you are a bigger build and need more of a straigh/fuller cut. I am generally a 31-32 (EU 48) in slim fit pants and the size 32 cinch back pants fit me perfectly.

That is the black sweater knit version of the shawl I posted here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/348264/engineered-garments-fall-winter-2013/1050_30#post_6683007
I know Nepenthes NYC stocked it, but had very limited stock left so you can always try calling them. The only other place I know of closer to stateside was Haven Shop: http://shop.havenshop.ca/collections/engineered-garments/products/shawl-collar-knit-jacket-sweater-knit
