    Price isn't too bad, and it is competitive with similar brands. Monitaly did the fairbault mills wool coats last season with the metal toggles and corduroy good and those were $1500. Although they were knee length jackets.

    I think the button shawl is a way better deal for that fabric and you dont have to worry about your size selling out either......

    Anyone else notice Need Supply removed the ability to buy EG gear directly via online website?

    Item description and photos still up, but you can now only order via email.

    Stockists who signed on after 2008 are asked not to sell directly online.

    i picked up a s/s bedford in cotton khaki, and the backsides of the buttons have a ring on them instead of a simple knot - whats the rationale behind that?

    ^They're removable. You can use the ring to take the buttons off for laundering the jacket.

    Old hunting and workwear jackets had buttons like these - I've seen them referred to as "change buttons". Not sure on the history of how the design came about, but I'd guess that it was because with this style you could more quickly attach a button back on while out in the field or on a factory floor and not worry about a needle and thread.

    Can anyone (maybe Gary) speak to this? I've always wondered about it. I've noticed that other brands (Dries, for example) are going this route and I've always found it interesting because it's so decidedly anti e-commerce and anti 2013. Is this a decision mostly to promote the exclusivity of the brand or what's the deal? I think it's fascinating but I don't understand the rationale.

    I'd love to hear insights from anyone with a view into the industry.

    Fairly easy to remove the cinch from the back of EG pants? Thinking of kopping a suit in the iridescent twill

    The rationale is simply that the designer/manufacturer has reconsidered their product placement and position in the marketplace and is fleeing the shopping cart experience which tarnishes their identity as a luxury brand. I won't speak for Engineered Garments philosophy but I will comment on Drinkwater's. We could have easily added an e-commerce branch to our business model and we would have reaped some greater financial success because of it but it wouldn't be the same Drinkwater's experience which so many have grown to appreciate. Many have realized that there is a certain lack of satisfaction when there is a void of human interaction and I think that that is now being realized by many industries.. We are a destination store and a relationship driven experience with great product, we cherish the opportunity to serve our customers and in return our customers find pleasure in the opportunity to visit us. Some would say that this a pompous ideal but we are Brick and Mortar and we are here to stay.

    Agreed, not only is it hardly noticeable but it actually comes in handy (especially if between sizes)
