The most expensive item from last year was, I believe, the chester down coat. It was a wool herringbone coat, hooded, 3/4 length (roughly), and down-filled. Somebody from this board checked it out at BG and said it was retailing for $750. That's only slightly more than what EG would be charging for such an item. EDIT: Furthermore, two very similar jackets from EG and Woolrich (except the Woolrich is lined), from the same retailer, only 20 GBP of price difference at retail: http://www.oipolloi.com/store/Woolen...Navy-2736.html http://www.oipolloi.com/store/Engine...plin-2910.html

That isn't so bad. I remember going to BG and checking the stuff out. They had some cool plaid bags last year that I slept on. I remember thinking back then that the price point was about 800 on the pieces worth buying and I suppose I assumed similar pricing for the rest of the line. It is still more expensive than EG. The styling is not as strong, and there's too much plaid. I wonder if there will be anything wearable from an accessible stockist. We'll see[/i]

Did you happen to try anything on? I'm curious about the fit -- looks pretty good from Schuman's photos. There's a jacket I really want (the first one from Robin's link), but Context isn't getting it and it's hell getting useful information out of BG when you're hundreds of miles away.

I think I tried on a duffel coat. or something very similar. I don't remember. It fit big, but it was supposed to. The wool parka does look interesting. I will be heading to BG to check it out this fall if the EG wool parka disappoints. I don't know if it would be $800-1k well spent, though... Maybe if it's epic.

Some of the jackets look interesting. Any idea where to get this stuff online?

Context, Oi Polloi if you want to pay a big markup.

Eh, not bad but definitely not great. The multitude of zip pockets on the 'pea jacket' bother me immensely.

I don't think it's zip pockets. Probably are the pockets lined with leather. It's the same thing with the cuffs. Anyone who picked up the pea coat from earlier collections and can tell me something about the sizing?

I'd bet that they used a similar pattern to the pea jacket in the Engineered Garments line. If so, it's probably true to size, but short. Not slim at all though.

saw bergdorf's fall buy. sucks.

Sales rack has some awesome khaki colored parka for south of 200. (Retail 450+?) almost impulse bought, didn't like ginormous hood flap things that extend over my shoulders.

I just saw their spring 09 shit and it looks pretty dope, I don't know about the fall too much....

I like the look of the peacoat + the cruiser shirts, the raglan shirt is also okish.

Don't think I would cop though if the price point is 2x EG

It's look likes there are going to be quite a few stateside stockists from now on. For F/W08:
