Engineered Garments FW08 - Page 52

post #766 of 1517
Here's a tough question: I am very keen on the grey EG Andover jacket, but live in Sydney, Australia, and will need it shipped. No EG this time of year in Syd. What are my options, apart from Hejfina's? (They're having troubles with international cards.) Thanks.

is it possible to tailor eg shirts? I just bought the one from the first page on http://www.engineeredgarments.com/ in a medium but it is pretty big in the bottom.

also wondering how it is actually supposed to be worn. tucked/untucked/unbuttoned? unbuttoned looks best right now since it is a bit big, though makes me look like kurt cobain.

There are many stockists of the Andover jacket that aren't online. MAC in San Francisco, Den/Odin in New York, and Bloomingdale's in both of those cities are options off the top of my head.

Regarding tailoring EG shirts, if you plan on keeping the shirt tucked in most of the time it's pretty simple to throw some darts in the back to slim them down, although they will tend to flair out at the bottom when untucked. It would be difficult to take them in at the bottom because of the shape of the hem of the shirt.

As for how it's supposed to be worn, just cue off of the EG lookbook, which usually means buttoned and tucked in (which helps show off your EG Quick-Release Belt or Double-Ring Belt), and layered underneath something else.

No, the tailor's union has an agreement not to accept any EG shirts for alterations.

I've had most of my EG shirts tailored. Though I know I'm messing with the intended aesthetic a bit, I've had many of them darted, as they can be a bit boxy on the bottom.

Tucked or untucked, I say wear it whatever way you like. IMO, unbuttoned is not a good look though.

thanks for the answers.

atomicranch, I am interested in why you don't like the unbuttoned look. I know a lot of people dislike it but I have never understood why.

I like it.

I'm not particularly a fan of the unbuttoned look either but Rye pulls it off pretty well. I suppose there have been way too many that haven't pulled it of so well that has turned me away from the look in general.

thanks for the list of stockists. I guess I should email or call them? Any other online stockists?

Is the olive wool Andover jacket a Japan exclusive?

Daiki has page devoted to him and Engineered Garments in Esquire's Big Black Book this year, along with a couple of other mentions elsewhere in the magazine in regards to Woolrich.
post #776 of 1517
pardon my ignorance, whats the Big Black Book? and when does it come out?
post #777 of 1517
It's a big magazine put annually out by Esquire, about 200 pages or so. This year's version has some good layouts on American menswear and designers, tuxedos, Neapolitan tailoring, outdoor clothing, and English/Irish knitwear (along with some other stuff). It's actually pretty decent, compared to Esquire's monthly rag.

Can somebody please tell me if the EG quick release belts fit true to size? My GF is going to new york and I want her to pick me up one. I'm usually a 30/31 waist.

I'm a bit too lazy to be taking pictures right now, but I just found this on Nepenthes:
