Engineered Garments Fall/Winter 07 - Page 44

You have no idea ;_;

I'd be a poor man if Engineered Garments sold directly online in the U.S.

just curious as to why you're doing so much tailoring on these pieces? why not just size down?

Usually it's because a size down is either too tight or too short in some area - in the Norfolk's case, the medium was too tight. It also doesn't help that my arms hang at a slightly forward angle, which causes fabric to bunch up behind my shoulders on most suits and jackets that I buy.

The only EG coats that I have not had to get altered have been my Bedfords, which fit me perfectly right off of the rack.

Gun Plaid looks good robin, although the photos don't do justice to how soft the wool is and the detail in the pattern. Regarding the fit of EG, I've had to have some items tailored because of the necessity to size up in some cases. For instance with my bedford from last year, the shoulders were a bit tight, so I had to go to a large and have the sleeves shortened and body slimmed down. Nothing new with Bloomie's. Stopped by American Rag and they had the Engineer's Jacket in Denim and the Field Shirt Jacket in Grey Heather Twill (see pics below). I ended up getting the cinch pants the same material, which is one of my favorites for this season. No sign of the Fatigue Shirt Jacket, but they did have the yellow and white binocular shirts and tan cord jeans. (images via Midland Ship: http://www.mizobuchi.co.jp/mls/nepenthes.html)

Ian has the Field Shirt Jacket in the brown twill, and it fits me nicely. I think I'll probably pick it up closer to the end of this month.

Yeah, the lighting conditions in my apartment are pretty awful and I can only get decent shots inside during a time period of about an hour in the day due to the positioning of my windows.

I was at Ian's this weekend, but all their EG stuff was too big. Duffle jacket looked awesome. I ended up getting the Andover suit from Hejifina in XS/28. Hopefully it'll fit.

Nice. Tell us about the construction quality once you get it. Its probably fused but still...
post #654 of 965
I did the pinch test on the jacket in several places and it didn't seem fused, though I'm not quite the expert. It's surprisingly heavy, has minimal shoulder padding, and seems well made.

Combo of EG, Woolrich, and Skookum(?):

that v-neck sweater from woolrich looks really nice, too bad it's almost ¥60 000.

Bloomingdales SF called. They will have Engineered Garments on the floor tomorrow when the store opens at 9:30. Some of the garments he mentioned receiving are the Bedford Charcoal Herringbone, Chesterfield, 2 plaid shirts, 1 jeans, 1 charcoal wool pants (he didn't know whether they were fatigue or cinch), Charcoal Down Vest but NO Engineer Jacket. He said he could have missed it or that it may still be arriving. I mentioned it was advertised in the catalog.

I agree with robin--the suit seems canvassed. Would have picked it up if I had an extra 1k lying around. Barneys in Seattle also has a really nice shawl collar sweatshirt made from post-consumer cotton.

Also, I'm trying to decide on whether to buy the gun check or the herringbone Norfolk. I already have the shawl collar vest in the herringbone--which would compliment the vest better if layered together?

The herringbone obviously

Is this an EG piece? I don't think I've seen it if so.

I would have bought it if the cut wasn't so casual. Daiki needs more practice in designing suits before I buy one from him.
