Engineered Garments FW 15 - Page 50

post #736 of 1015

In several moments of weakness last week during the brief cold spell in Southern California along with black Friday sales, I ordered a bunch of warm/cozy pieces.  One of them was the BDU pants in 13 oz grey wool flannel.  They are pretty awesome, but also warm as hell.  I'm afraid I'll only get to wear them a month or two out of the year.  At least I'm going to Michigan for Christmas.

anyone out there purchased the reversible coat? did you go with your normal "Bedford sizing" and if so, how did it fit? room to layer - wear a Bedford and OCBD underneath? was it too "roomy" without the extra layers? too snug with them on? poised to pick up the floral/navy model but want to get the size right...wish federal had them in stock! cheers!

I can completely relate to the impulse as at various times had the cable knit leisure coat, herringbone Bedford and Field Parka in online carts but ended up with a some shirts, the herringbone (cotton) fatigues, and twill Andover.

It's the same material as the Baker jacket, right? I passed on the Baker, because I thought the wool was way too warm. I didn't think I could wear it as anything other than outerwear, which didn't seem right for a Baker.

Yea there's a Baker with the same material.  Maybe I should try the outback canvas (not sure how it compares - I have SS15 ripstop fatigues).  I think I've only seen the BDU offered in olive, navy, and black for the outback canvas.

It's a little scratchy, not crazy though.  The leisure jacket has lining in the body so it's not really an issue there.

They fit very generously in the body, but I would go TTS (/your usual EG size) regardless. It's def intended to accommodate layers, and I think you'll find it very full in the body without layers on, but for the shoulders and sleeves especially, I wouldn't size down. I tried one size down and the sleeves were much too short (though the body was more what I and prob most slimmer guys would go for), and for a winter coat if anything you want extra length in the sleeves to cover your gloves and whatever else you're wearing under there. I find this true of most EG anyway. I can almost always size down for that more sought after "slim fit", but when I do, sleeves on jackets and shirts are comically short and not even worth considering.

Got my first EG piece ever, Bedford in navy serge. I know it's vanilla but I'm really excited about it. I have a feeling it won't be my last EG.

Good choice. Navy serge and navy tropical wool are the two fabrics I think of when I picture an EG sportcoat.

For the reversible coat, go TTS. It is a loose fitting piece -- typical EG A-Line pattern. It will billow a bit in the body , but that is the look. You need to fit layers underneath to keep warm since the wind will get underneath the coat.

No I picked up the brown tweed which still feeds big. Look at Blue Peter's fitpic and you can see that his fits a lot looser than his other blazers. I now know why it fit tighter because I tried it on with a sweatshirt on shog[1].gif. I tried it on with just a ocbd on today and it's a bit looser but doubt I can layer more than a vest underneath. No complaints at all though. The weave pattern is beautiful! Probably one of my favorite pick ups this FW.

Now to figure out which EG winter jacket I want to pick up biggrin.gif.

Are the BDUs machine washable or dry clean only? I like them, but can't be dealing with dry clean only trousers.

I have the clicker in navy melton wool. It has two interior pockets that zip. A really nice simple and functional fall/winter jacket.

Care to share any pics, @Ritchee?
