I think the flannel looks good, but the chambray sleeves are too short.
They've started the Nepenthes NY blog: http://nepenthesny.com/wordpress/
Started sooner than I expected, and daily up to this point. Hope the frequency of updates keeps up.
Good pics slide13, though I agree with Froosh that the chambray sleeves look a bit short on you. Maybe just always roll the sleeve up?
somebody was asking for the NY store #: 212 643 9540
Yeah, you know, after looking at the pics you guys may be right...never really noticed before. I should probably have gone L on the chambray too...maybe I'll sell this one and pick up the large instead.
Does the Bedford look ok in your guys oppinion? It's a really snug fit when buttoned, but I've been loosing weight lately and plan to loose another 15lbs or so at least so I bought it snug with that in mind.
Yeah the Bedford looks good I think mate.
I hadn't made into this thread (was holding myself back) but had to mention how awesome this version of the Engineer Coat is:
Slide, I am having the same debate with the Bedford. I visited Nepenthes on Monday and Drinkwater's on Tuesday. Though both shops/personnel were wonderful (Angelo is one cool dude, and now I know why Gary is held in such high regard on SF), I found the Cotton/Poly Bedford Gary stocks to win out over the wool version at Nepenthes. The Cotton/Poly fits slightly slimmer, but it may be less warm. Therein lies my problem: do I want the slim fit like you posted (and probably the way EG intended the jacket to be worn), or do I want to size up for layering?
It was about 50 degrees this morning in Boston, and I am really starting to sweat the imminent cold.
I am 6' 185 lbs., and I am leaning towards the medium Bedford. Layering is probably not an option if I go this route, however.
yeah, I"m 6' 200lbs and the large is very snug on me right now, I'm shooting for 180-185lbs in the comings months so my hope is a trim fit now and slight room for layering at the end. Mine is the whipcord which is fairly substantial, should be warm enough for fall.
The Whipcord definitely has some heft to it..fits a little stiffer/slimmer than the cotton/poly IMO.
P.S.--I notice you are a tennis player! We are basically the same person.
Whipcord for sure. I have last year's Whipcord Baker and the fabric is very substantial for Fall, and good to layer in Winter.
Can anyone direct me to a US stockist who's carrying the parka in Navy? Sorry if it's been mentioned previously but I couldn't find it in the thread.
I read here that its in nyc barneys and I've seen it personally in Nomad (Toronto).
Between Nomad and J + O, Toronto actually has a pretty good representation of EG, especially with outerwear.
Definitely, I just picked up the black wool belted cardigan from nomad, amazing piece.
