    This is like the Hitlerjugend of NDG but flipped to am American look. I'm a huge fan of NDG and I love this. This model is slightly more muscular than me but I'm hoping those Mustard Utility Trousers are a tad on the slim side because I'm really liking how those look (top block at least).


    blue oxford military woven will be mine

    it looks more inspired off of air force dress blues (part way down the page[​IMG]

    really dig all of it, and would feel less awkward dropping the $$$ on the pieces knowing how much these guys do for invisible children et cetera.

    Doesn't really look like J. Crew at all, way too many military references. Kind of interested in the pants and the workshirt, collabo bag looks good too.

    +1

    stuff looks good, doubt i'll cop because i'm poor but if i had the money i would definitely.

    Context is rad--their site is a real resource and they seem like great guys--but if I can support my local stores, I want to. Of course, there are always deals one can't pass up, but in general, those guys need all the support we can give them.

    And yeah, the Apolis fit seems to vary, making the chance to try it on a nice feature for sure. I need to not sleep on the pants that drop for fall--assuming they make any w/ an inseam longer than 32"--[​IMG]

    Oh damn, thought you were talking about Context as your local store...didn't read location... [​IMG]

    anyway agreed re: trying it on, i also hear their sizing issues should be sorted out for this season. i'm also making sure i don't sleep on their pants...

    I'd be surprised if it was any less than $300.

    go for it. vote with your dollars. that's always the strongest vote of all. in fact, don't buy any of the brands that these retailers sell, in protest over not being able to get them at a discount, b/c even though you love them, you think they're overpriced.

    i can't afford a lot of the SF-beloved brands, so I wait for sales at my local shops, pick stuff carefully and pony up, or see if choice finds in my size show up in B&S. but i don't bitch about not getting a discount that was always a privilege and not a right.

    I got my Nomad Pullover from Brigade today and it's kick ass. The fit is great and the cotton cashmere is crazy soft. Thanks, Brigade!
