Engineered Garments Fall/Winter 07 - Page 7

post #91 of 965
Thread Starter 
Greetings,

I've just returned from our buying trip in NYC. Exciting, fun and exhausting to say the least. Three full days of looking at clothing samples, fabric swatches and frenzied buyers looking for the latest and greatest. We attended The Collective, Blue and Project. The Collective offered us all the classic traditional collections we offer and we were advised that we will be the only retailer in the US that will be stocking the Hillditch and Key shirts in trim fit. We found a new t-shirt line called Panda Snacks that is made of Bamboo and offered some great models that I think you guys will like.
A line that we have had for going on three seasons is MacHay which is a very hip collection of Outerwear, Shirts, Knits and Trousers. A must see. Trim, great fabrics and captures the essence of 50's & 60's styling.
Blue was a disapointment although we did find a Batique line of shirts that we like very much called Baik and another shirt line called SHIRT from California.
Project, what can I say. Every line that makes up the Street World. If we were a streetwear store we would have a field day here but we were overwelmed by the assortment of jeans, t-shirts and sparkly skull and crossbone baseball caps. It all started to look the same to us.
Now, our trip to see EG was amazing. Their collections have tripled in size with lots of new additions in outerwear, shirts and knitwear. Neckwear, pocket squares and hats were fantastic. There are alot of new fabrics that Diaki has resourced from archived fabrics at some of his favorite Mills. We selected so much that we will have to dedicate a whole section to his stuff. I was not able to photo shoot the buy to post for you because of some experience they have had at Piti and other shows. Manufactures have this pension to rip off designs and they didn't want any available on the net. I think we can all understand their concern. I will though post our pics as I have always been able to do, once the season gets close enough.
No word yet on smalls and extra inventory in the Bedford but it should be soon when we here something.

Best Regards,

Gary

Dusty, As far as I know and what the line sheet tells me, they are only making the Duffle as a long wool coat. It is available in two fabrics, Wool Herringbone w/ Quilted Lining and 22oz. Wool Melton w/Quilted Lining. We did not order either one. All other Coats/Jackets are short lengths. Gary

EG is always good with details, I really like the pockets on the button up shirts. Does anyone know if the design came from some kind of functional inspiration, or just for aesthetics.

Those cinch-back pants look nice. Hopefully a US retailer picks them up.

Hi Gary,
Isn't the Riding Coat almost floor length? I know I ordered a coat model for this season that was really long. I was able to take pics of my selections at the Pitti but I obviously can't share them until the lookbook comes out from EG. I guess they do have to be careful at the shows. Although, I thought they only let their clients take the pictures. Dirty business. Anyway, really looking forward to my first delivery. It would be intersting to see how it does in Berlin.

I do not remember that model and it does not appear on the line sheet for Fall/Winter 07. I do not have my notes for the Spring/Summer 08 collection and do not remember that style. This could have been a style that is not available for the US market.
Yes, manufacturers can be dirty when it comes to knocking off styles. For an example, the Handbag market. Some styles are available weeks after the original launches.
You should be able to rock it in Berlin!

Pm'd you.

Dammit man, I thought I filled my Bedford needs last F/W (Tan, Olive, and Black Cotton 8 Wale Corduroy) @ GEEK (http://www.geek-co.jp/GEEK/brand/engineeredgarments.htm): BTW: There's supposedly a Wool Brown Herringbone Bedford as well. Also, the Bedfords are selling for about 68% of the cost of the Field Jackets, so if the Bedford is going for $460, the Field Jackets could be going for $675!?! Corduroy Newport Pants (11 pockets) @ SKINK (http://www.skink-nagoya.com/eg18.html):

Sweet fuck, I like EG, but just not at these prices. There is no such thing as a $700 field jacket.
post #105 of 965
Sorry, made the $675 statement based on the cost of the Bedford in US pricing in $ vs. the relative cost of the field jacket to the bedford on GEEK's website. The price in yen of the field jacket on several sites is 68250, which correlates to $565.66 US.
