    I spoke with Angelo today and they had not shipped the Fatigue Pants yet. They have been very busy preparing for Pitti Uomo in Milan. He will get them out to me this week. Also, I've had a few inquiries for the Hoodies. I will take some orders for them and try to get for you but they will have to be pre-paid.
    Thanks!

    These are great and cannot wait to get a pair for myself.


    Here's a higher res shot of the details of the Workaday Fatigue Pants in Reversed Sateen (via Explorer):

    I have these from 2 winter's ago and these are certainly a staple in my wardrobe. The version I have though has a small flapped coin pocket within the left front pocket (literally smack dab in the middle), wonder if these have the same detail.

    i can't wait till you get them either.

    timpoblete, do you have any pics of you wearing them you wouldn't mind finding us? i know these pants would fit you great, but when i get them i might just have to have them tapered a tad.

    is it possible to get more measurements on the fatigue pants? are they vanity sized or is the waist on the Small a true 32"? leg opening?

    If your talking about the 19th Century BD, I own two from different seasons. They both fit differently. 2004 shirt is much slimmer than the most recent. They are trimmer than the Work Shirt but fuller at the bottom because of the design. I wear a Large in their shirts and do with this one also. I'm a 42 regular jacket size if that helps.

    ^^^Gary, that was the EG Denim Workshirt from FW07, IIRC. Here are the rest of the pics I have of it (from Dice&Dice Japan): [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Needles made an Engineer's Jacket around that time in the same time using similar stitching and Sunny Sports another Engineer's Jacket in a lighter denim color for SS09.

    Timpo, Robin or anyone else w/ experience...

    I'm looking for measurements on the Tapered Fit 5 pocket cords, specifically for a size 34 & a size 36. Can anyone help me out with this?

    I have no idea if they're still cut the same, but here are measurements for a size 34 from FW07 that I resold early last year:

    Waist: 34"
    Inseam: 32.5"
    Hem: 8"
    Knee: 8.75"
    Thigh: 12"

    They fit slim (for EG). I would have kept them if the inseam were longer.

    ^Yeah, I bought that pair from you. They were way to slim for me. I didn't know if they'd changed the fit of them in the seasons that have followed. I'm guessing that I'll have to go for the 36.

    Gary - I was going to contact you directly, but in case others had the same question, what is the cost for the Workaday thermal lined hoodies? I think that is at the top of my wish list for this winter.

    good question

    i just realized that I had never even asked how much it would be
    i've been in contact with him about trying to order one
    he said he'd see if he can get one from Angelo, but he hasn't gotten back to me yet

    they sell for $199 at Odin so I'm assuming around the same

    FYI, Angelo advised me that the Olive Fatigue Pants that I ordered would be shipped to me on the 6th, so on the 7th I should have them. Anyone that ordered other items from this collection, they should also be part of this order. If anyone wants something, now is the time to cough because the rest is being sent to Japan. Please do not PM me. Call me at 617-547-2067 or if you must, PM me your phone # and I will call you back. Thanks! Gary

    Uniqueness, fabric, and made in USA. Functionally, they're not going to be any better or different than something from J.Crew, Polo, etc.
