    ^ those look nice! Fit doesn't look nearly as huge there as they did last FW when I tried a pair on at Nepenthes (I think that was the model). Damn it...I don't need more EG pants...

    Jack Straw got in its first shipment, including the following from what I remember: landsdown jackets in some dark wool/denim fabric and corduroy (dark navy and olive) baker jackets in grey/red stripe and olive wool truman jacket in grey hb a long shop/mechanics type coat (not sure on the model name, picture below) plaid tab collar shirt couple of scarves I liked the Truman, but it fit me kind of oddly (maybe due to it just being tried on almost right out of the box). [​IMG] The long coat. I did not think I would like this one but it's kinda fun and drapey - could see myself getting it in sale season maybe. Next shipment should arrive around mid August. Other stuff: Some image previews: http://neposaka-news.jugem.jp/?eid=780 A big bag: http://engineeredgarments.jp/?eid=220 Oi Polloi has a couple of FW items up: http://www.oipolloi.com/shop/brand/engineered-garments Lots of other stores around North America and Europe received shipments this last week, so we'll probably see some more pictures show up online over the next few days.

    Liking that long jacket a lot. Anybody know what it's called?

    Contrary to my initial impressions from the look book , this season is shaping up to be really good in my view. The chambray workshirt is the best I've seen in years, love the fabric and the fit is definitely nicer for me. Liked it so much I went back today and picked up a second one :). I so have an EG problem...I don't even want to count the total number of workshirts I have now.

    If you really like the shirt and wear it a lot, it's smart to get two. I'm kicking myself for not getting a second Navy/Rust workshirt from FW10 when it was on sale, since it is my favorite fall piece and is starting to pill up a little.

    really stoked to see the fw12 workshirts having the measurements that worked perfectly for me again. i think i'm going to pick up another blue chambray just to put in the rotation... i literally wear this thing everyday. wish they would do the workshirt in the grey vintage chambray rather than the brown one.

    how do you guys like the miner shirts? i love the pocketing and have been wanting to try out one of those as well.

    lawlercon - I'm guessing you'll love the workshirts this season, fit is so much better for me this season, I'm wearing a FW12 blue chambray today and it's just perfect. The heavy vintage chambray, which I've seen called grey, is definitely on the brown side of things...is there a true grey in that fabric? That one fits just a little bit slimmer than the blue chambrays this season, but not a big difference.

    As far as miner shirts go, I have one in a blue chambray from last FW season and I really like it. Nice change from the workshirts and the pocket setup is pretty useful. I wear it a lot and while I still prefer the workshirts overall, it's nice to have one in the rotation and I wouldn't mind getting another one of these days.

    what season is that workshirt you have on from?

    First shipment of FW12 priced and ready to go at Drinkwater's! (Sorry I squeezed it into one small pic, detailed shots available upon request) Shipment included USN Pant, Desert Pant, Indigo Denim Workshirt, Heavy Grey Chambray Miner Shirt, and assorted scarves, pocket squares, neckwear. See Gary's POST a few ahead of mine for the specifics. I'll be here to answer calls and/or PMs in his absence.

    just swung by Jack Straw on my lunch break and tried on the olive baker jacket. i liked the color and material, but i wasn't crazy about the fit. which was fine, i don't really need anymore f/w jackets

    i really wanted the terry cloth bedford that i believe was last season. i thought that material worked really well for this style of jacket, but I came around late and never could find a medium. maybe it'll be back around in the spring.

    jack straw said he didn't order many shirts this season, mostly jackets. i wanted to see a work shirt in person, the shirt tail seems pretty exaggerated.

    Wow, totally just realized how washed out the color on my camera looks under this lighting (specifically on the USN pant, everything else looks close). Actually, refer to Gary's post HERE to see our selection for FW12. As noted, this is only our first shipment. This is a much truer image of the color of the USN Pant we're stocking (Khaki Cotton Whipcord) :

    $265, it's a slim, straight cut.
