    The last couple of days I have been getting requests for look books and it has not fallen on deaf ears. I have not responded because I have run out of them at the moment. The guys at EG are all away in Japan and should be getting back this week. I will ask Angelo to send me some more and I will get them out to you as soon as I get them. I hope that the ones I have sent out so far have been enjoyed. Later!

    You're welcome!

    If anyone sees something in the look book that they might be interested in, I will try my hardest to get it for you or lead you in the right direction.

    Does anyone know how warm the aviator jacket is? I need a new winter jacket but it's got to hold up to Wisconsin winters.

    Warm enough for Boston winters, not warm enough for midwest winters. All of the Engineered Garments boiled and melton jackets are plenty warm enough though. In fact, my boiled wool EG Engineers jacket is *too* warm, except on particularly cold days (say, -20C or so), when it is just right.

    Engineered Garments? Big deal. I honestly do not understand the obsession with this brand. None of their clothes are flattering at all, with the exception of that aviator jacket, everything fits like ass. Why would anyone shell out this kind of cash for ultra boring, overrated, bulky, boxy cuts just because the construction is good? Fishermans vests? You've got to be kidding me.

    The new quick release belts are quite badass though.

    It could be your body type. I really dislike when people say that something fits poorly. There *are* certain things that fit everyone poorly, and very select things that fit everyone reasonably well. Most things fit some people well, and others, poorly. I would say that Engineered Garments fits me very well, and most people quite well. The shoulders and chest on most of their jackets are dead on for me, as is the pitch of the shoulder and arms. YMMV.

    I don't think that's the issue. All EG stuff is relatively boxy and not fitted. It's a fundamentally different silhouette and aesthetic from a lot of other stuff here.

    A pox upon your house, I said! Do I hear you wanting to sell? [​IMG]

    I tried on the Engineered Garments bedford in dark olive corduroy this morning. I am a 38", and the medium fit really well, just slightly snug, through the chest and shoulders. Body was more fitted than in previous years. I am really looking forward to the wool model now.

    I have to imagine it will. I got mine (in black) from Odin last season.

    Hey LA Guy,

    When you tried the Bedford on, what were you wearing underneath? In other words, what could the medium accommodate for layering?

    Thanks.

    I was wearing a couple of layered tees. It should be worth noting that my shoulders are sloped but deceptively big for my size (5'11", 155lbs). For me, it could accomodate a hoodie, but it would be snug.

    Where would I be able to get the Norfolk online, and how much would it cost? It is the most amazing thing and I need it to one-up all the haters.

    Is anyone in the US stocking these? And looking at the collection, it seems to be part of a 3-piece suit--does anyone stock all the pieces?

    If you're referring to the last fit in the online collection, it's not a 3-piece suit, but three separates made of the same material. The jacket is the Norfolk Jacket, the waistcoast is noted above, and the pants are Wool Grey Herringbone Nickers.

    As for US stockists, Odin would be my best guess, but I'm also guessing that no one stockist will carry all three pieces.
