    Can anyone with a good knowledge of FW12 advise which jackets will be available in grey wool/herringbone, and any known stockists?

    Thanks.

    The logical side of me understands the difficulties of Canadian retailers importing goods into the country and the extra costs incurred, however there is the consumer part of me that screams "I'm getting screwed!" by some of these prices.

    Actually, I don't think their prices are (historically) out of line with US retailers. $900+ may be the going rate for the jacket.

    i'm on the hunt for a grey wool/herringbone jacket this season as well. the official catalog shows a baker jacket in this material. http://www.nepenthes.co.jp/brands/2012fw/details/eg/fig07.html

    i'm hoping they also make a bedford with it.

    Unfortunately no Bedford. The only Grey Wool Herringbone jackets this season are:

    Shawl Collar Shirt "Jacket"
    Railroader Jacket
    Truman Jacket
    Baker Jacket

    We all know Context styling sucks, but I want to know why.

    Is it because they tug their shirts in? shirt size too big, too small? no layering? their models have no charisma (no offense, their 4th of July photo shoot was unwatchable)?

    Dropped by MAC today. They had:

    - Baker Jacket in Red Stripe Grey Wool
    - Type 5 Jean Jacket
    - Type 5 Jean
    - Floral Shirt, Pink/White
    - Tab Collar Shirt, Denim
    - Workshirt, Grey Vintage Chambray
    - Andover, Black Serge
    - 19th BD Shirt, White
    - 2 plaid scarves

    This is approx. 30% of their order.

    They did not order much in the way of heavy wools, like the Melton or Wool Camo, as they are too much for SF winters.

    Impressions:
    - Floral shirt material is very soft but not too delicate. Slightly thicker than standard shirting fabrics.
    - Type 5 jean denim is hefty. Expect the railroader to be pretty nice in this.
    - Grey vintage chambray is nicer in person than in pics.
    - Plaid shirting fabric are on the thin side.

    No pickups from this visit. They will also be receiving Post Overalls, Sunny Sports and WWM.
