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.
