It seems as if you reached into a bag one day and pulled out random pieces with which to construct an outfit. Nothing quite goes together or fits properly.
i agree about the pants fitting way too tight BUT, i actually like the whole outfit other than the jacket. Jacket might even be ok if it was brown. I think the orange shirt goes well with the khakis and the shoes add a good amount of visual interest to an outfit with all solids

It's always hard to say goodbye, even harder for the one who gets left behind. I know its no consolation but you look especially good in that suit.

I disagree with this. The first time I saw Engineered Garments on the rack, I was blown away. The attention to texture, tone, and hue, the respect of the designs for their inspiration, were very refreshing. I personally am more impressed with these qualities than with the directional, but ultimately rootless designs of brands like N(N). Of the Japanese designers, I like Yamamoto, and his nods towards the silhouettes of postwar Japan, most. These days, Barneys places Engineered Garments alongside Trovata, Nice Collective, and Rogues Gallery, and it obliterates the competition.

Today, on by far the most beautiful morning in a solid month:



Linen scarf inspired by SuperBobo, whose post reminded me that I have one.

I am very much in agreement with you in principle as I strongly believe the brand to be head and shoulders above pretty much everything in a similar price range, but the reality of retail and consumers is that EG is less eye-catching than most brands sold at the same retail spaces. An average customer, visiting a mid-size store with lots of possible options will probably dismiss EG with a short glance and head over to a rack of clothes that "pop" more. Now if that same person takes the time to actually examine the garment and try them on I'm sure the results could be different.

N(N) is another subject entirely, I don't think it presents a unique and finely realized vision although I do like some individual pieces.

Lowrey- I've had the image of you drunk with a helmet on, happy as a man can get, branded into my mind for the last month. It's hard to see you now sad with head in hand. You do look amazing!

Fuuma- Always killing it. Wish I could see your image not broken up in the mirror though.

Marrakesh Is that a reversible Hermes belt? I hope so because if you have two of those then you really scare me. The turquoise side looks better with the outfit but I still wouldn't wear a belt with drawstring trousers even if they have belt loops.

I'm moving soon, will purchase a mirror after that and not put it in a corridor so my shots should improve drastically.

Lowrey: I recently learned that a friend I hadn't seen in a while died, these kind of things are always emotionally draining.

Marrakesh - Nice belt, but I agree with Berlin on the drawstring pants and belt being a no no. Is that a pen in your chest pocket or a tag?

Lowrey - My condolences. You look dashing in that suit though.
