I saw that jacket on the rig by the door last week. It is INSANE.Sorry to see this thread fizzle out...I ducked into the New York store recently and I can report that after a somewhat lackluster spring and summer (my opinion, granted), the fall is showing some signs of life. The eastern shirt is back, which I am always glad to see. Also really digging this denim coverall and painters pant:
The highlight has to be this indigo homespun tweed jacket:
This jacket has to be seen in person to truly be appreciated. I'm sure the amount of work that goes into something like this is staggering (I leave it to someone with a lot more knowledge than myself to expound further), and honestly, this isn't even a piece I have much interest in wearing. But god damn, it sure is beautiful.
Looking forward to seeing what other goodies roll out as the temps start to drop.
It's funny I just got my hands on about 10 of their old catalogues from the early 2000s and have to agree that things were a lot less tame then. The level of quality hasn't changed but the the overall vibe has. These days it seems like it's mostly sportcoats and woven shirts. I've always been most drawn to their sweaters and outerwear.
