    Hi all,

    After too long, we have made Drinkwaters an official affiliate of Styleforum. Gary Drinkwater was one of the original stockists of Engineered Garments in the USA, and instrumental in introducing the brand to me and to this forum way back in FW03. He was also critical in getting Styleforum's first collaboration, a special Engineered Garments for Styleforum quick release belt in two special colors (henna and black-blue), underway. He has some great stories about Engineered Garments and Daiki, whom he has been friends with for decades now.

    In addition to stocking a lot of Engineered Garments, Gary stocks lots of domestic brands and select imported brands. If you want a real Ivy look, you don't get more genuine than Gary's selection (a lot of his clients are faculty from the neighbourhood school - Harvard University.)

    I am happy to officially welcome Gary to the forum.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Any chances of a do-over?

    Me too! Ordered my first EG piece today from Gary. Couldn't be a nicer guy to deal with! Extremely helpful with sizes, materials, and fitment. Can't wait for them to arrive.

    It depends on what you are interested in, but if you are interested in brands with a "Heritage" look, he carries Paraboot and Fishermen (out of Ireland). If you want shriting, he has Aster, which has a nice cut and well shaped collar, Hilditch & Key, and Turrau.

    Thank you, Thank you. Bow, Blush, Loss for words.

    Honestly, it has been such great place to connect with people who are passionate, respectful and just downright a pleasure to assist. Most of you, I'll probably never get to meet face to face but the friendships I've made here are numerous and I will always be grateful for your support.

    J and Fok have been very kind to allow me over the years to participate in this forum. To engage in helping others with their needs and dilemma's. To promote our business and find a community that wants to see small business survive. I will always try to make your experience the added value you come to expect.

    Thanks again to all who we've assisted with their sartorial splendor!

    Best,

    Gary & Teresa

    Good to hear that Gary is finally on board. I have had the pleasure of meeting him in person and he is truly a great guy. I have only made one purchase from him so far but plan on many more.

    Best way to see the stock of EG and WWM is to refer to the respective EG and WWM threads, although I suppose future posts in those threads may be reposted or referenced here. BTW, good to see Gary that you're an official affiliate, although you've basically been an unofficial affiliate for quite a while now [​IMG].

    Just in MacHay. This collection is in its third year with us. Here is a something about them. Turkish-born American, designer Ufuk Omer Arkun draws his inspiration from a life captivated by both Eastern and Western influences and from his passion for creativity, sophistication and art. With an educational background spanning from Istanbul to Italy, and exposure to fields ranging from International Business to Art History and Literature, Arkun was inspired to create. After relocating from Europe to the U.S. to study Menswear Design and Marketing at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, Arkun was inspired by the laid back luxury of a sophisticated yet effortless lifestyle. Two arrivals in 100% cotton. $135.00 S >XXL
