    that might be brigade only but its definately 785 at the NDG store

    Thanks for the link though. This saves me about 150 if I decide to get it...


    holy fuck, so 785+NYC sales tax is completely insane

    Given last year's 560.. I'd have to go with "completely ludicrous." I really like the jacket too. Ah well.

    To be accurate, it was $560 at Stels, anD $620 everywhere else. And given that it sold out in days, $800 retail is not unreasonable. I mean, beyond what I am comfortable with, but supply and demand and my lack of being rich qualifies me to be SOL. The brand is really gathering steam.

    I will not rehash the "omgomgomg price increases sux!!!111" debate though the whole situation is a bit off-putting. Then again, if I was NDG, I'd charge as much as I could get dumbasses to pay.. y'know?

    Oh, and a quick edit - thanks for the Stels recommendation. Jon and Tina are awesome. Picked up SSV and NDG shirts from them.

    I'm confused as to why it's more expensive at the stores taking into account NDG's seemingly stringent attitude on their distributors concerning the pricing and no sales rules (which obviously wasn't followed, but you'd think they would make the stores jack the price for brand name sake).

    I am liking the heathered crewneck and burgundy polka scarf. Potential pickups, my buddy ordered a ton of the outerwear for fall. I liked the mac kennedy but I found out it was belted so that's a no go.

    Current season Nom de Guerre is on the floor at Stels ( www.stelsinc.com ). Tina told me that it should be on the website shortly.

    Make sure you look at it from all angles when you try it on. The stiffness of the herringbone doesn't make for a flattering fit when you look at it from the back.

    Don't mean to hijack this thread, but is there a site with more pics of this jacket? Thanks.

    Stel's is actually not carrying the M65 this season, just the Mac, the Hunting jacket, and the trench.

    Make sure you look at it from all angles when you try it on. The stiffness of the herringbone doesn't make for a flattering fit when you look at it from the back.

    I didn't find this to be the case, but it's a good point to look at it from as many angles as possible. In general, I find that Nom de Guerre stuff fits narrower, taller guys better than more bulky dudes.

    I like both jackets. The grey one is more versatile, and probably more flattering to most complexions, but the plaid is really cool. I'd get the former for travel (unlike some on this forum, I travel with just a duffle and a messenger and a minimal wardrobe - no porters with valises for me,) and the latter just to have.

    PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCMENT: Unless you are a moron, you will buy this from Denimbar, using the Styleforum discount.

    It was $560 at Stel's last year, when I got mine - from what I can tell without having handled this year's model in person, it's exactly the same jacket. Cheapest price anywhere (list price was $620.) All the details look identical.

    Oh, you suckers [​IMG] Sorry, just felt like gloating that I jumped on this ASAP after it landed for the first time.

    The price at NdG is typically not the lowest, ime. This year, the list price is $760 or so, considerably higher than at Brigade...


    i just went to NdG this weekend. price is $648 for the jacket + tax. so their list is higher than what their store charges, which is strange to me.
