    I do what I can. I was looking for them too and figured others would at least as much trouble as I did. Some I just couldn't find either.

    You eg whores.

    Yeesh..$176 for a hoodie...the nicest-looking hoodie I've ever seen?

    Not to hijack this thread too much, but how does that EG compare to Loopwheeler and Spruce? Both fit and warmth matter to me.

    ^^^^^Yup, the hype for EG is growing every season; I've noticed the prices have gone up significantly as well.

    Do you know which pieces went up in price? Two of the jackets I looked at were the same price as last year.

    Barney's and American Rag. Barney's had a pitiful rack though of about 5 or 6 random pieces in one or two sizes each, terrible. Haven't checked out AR's particular selection, I must have passed by it when I was there during thier garbage sale. I'm spending too much man, still picking up my margiela shirt too man [​IMG]

    Hey, I'm interested in comments on the hoodie, too. What's the fit and quality like?

    Does anyone know who stocks them (I need a L, sadly, or I'd order from Peasant)?

    the hoodies are not the generous engineered garments sizing--they run a bit smaller.

    Actually, the current collection *all* seems to be much slimmer than previous collections. I guess that Daiki has found that his market is urban, not really country!

    I just want to chime in on this one. My experiences with Engineered Garments has been from its inception. Daiki Suzuki, the designer behind the line, produces his goods and then puts each garment through a wash process. However, his experimentation with different laundry's and processes hasn't always given him or us (the retailer or end user) the desired effect or fit that can be considered perfect. Additionally, each fabric will react differently to these washes, hence we get some garments fitting a little smaller than expected and some not fitting small enough because the shrinkage was not what was expected.
    As in all clothing collections from a particular designer, there will be varying differences in fit because rarely they are all made in the same factory or how the clothes "make up" (terminology used in the industry to describe how the end product fits) to the original pattern will often time be off from one fabric to the next in the same model.
    This is what drives me crazy when I anticipate a great garment from the sample but get a different animal when we recieve the goods.
    So, my sage advice to all is, don't be dismayed by not recieving what you thought would fit but rather take the time to try on as much as you can until you achieve the desired comfort in your clothing. I know there are many here that don't "Utilize" the retailer at full price and I am learning to accept that. And I also know that not all have the means to pay full price or are questing for the deal. But honestly, we strive to bring to you educated "STUFF" which takes countless hours of editing fabrics, choosing models and details and merchandising it so that your experience in our stores is a relationship that makes sense.
    I'm getting off on a tangent here but I want you to always think to shop local for all you can, for it can all be for the betterment of our communities and keep the integrity of specialty shopping alive.

    Best Regards,

    Gary
