Engineered Garments Fall / Winter 2013 - Page 40
Picked up the miner shirt in black/navy flannel, a white oxford 19th cent. BD, and the missus got an FWK bush shirt.
Had the chance to try on a few pieces. Here are a few observations from a first time EG buyer. Your results might differ of course, based on your taste and body fit
The fit of the pants - fatigue/ reversed sateen and USN - is absolutely spot on for me and bought the fatigue. Only not going for USN as I do not like the olive color and I have already tons of navy pants.
Lafayette/ black flannel is fantastic. Even for a bigger guy like my (I'd like to think muscle and not fat, mind you), I sized down to M. A keeper.
Work shirt in Navy heathered cotton - Unbelievable fabric and color but ... the thing looks like a potato sack on me. I think the cut is way too long. And even tucked in it looks weird due to tons of extra fabric. I am and L and downsizing is not an option as it would be too tight
Herringbone Bedford. Very nice. Fit in L is spot on. However, the gray is a tad too dark for me and it is also too thick for LA (What was I thinking? Oh wait, I know: Trips to NYC, Europe, skiing ...).
More appropriate for LA: Found a SS13 beach jacket and bought it. Was told it is pretty much the same cut than a Bedford. LOVE IT!
Pics attached (Thanks Brad B. for the beach jacket fit idea) with more details on those pieces and the fabrics if you care for it.
Next: Those reversible vests, especially the Gray/ small flower pattern are really, really growing on me. Need a good shirt and tie to go with it as well.
