    Robin,

    I'm anticipating my deliveries to be here in the first two weeks of September but depending on fabric shipments from mills and production time, it's always a challenge for manufacturers. Lets keep our fingers crossed that everything goes as planed.

    Can anyone find that thread I referred to "How we roll in EG" I could not find it.

    Gary

    Have they given estimates on when F/W will start shipping to stores this year? I remember last year there was a big delay.[/quote]

    I dig the shawl shirt jacket. The S/S plaid ones were cool but I couldn't see myself wearing them.
    Anyone know when the Levi's capsule collection is supposed to happen?

    It looks like Skookum made that MultiPocket Varisty Knit Cardigan, based on the buttons and button holes. I didn't think they had a hand in more than the Aviator jackets.

    How can you tell by the buttons and button holes?

    I'd guess around $250, based off similar jackets they've done in the past.

    Anyone know when the Levi's capsule collection is supposed to happen?
    I haven't heard anything yet, but hopefully Levi's doesn't mess it up. Other than having their name on the stuff, they shouldn't touch it.

    I wouldn't count on the wool parka to be lined. EG's heavy on layering, so that parka's probably made to have another coat/jacket go underneath. It defintely looks more interesting that way, IMO.

    Yeah but come on, an unlined parka? At that point you're pretty much throwing all functionality out the window for aesthetics, which is a shame because the functionality is one of the major reasons EG is/was such an attractive label.

    this is such a strong collection. After I pick up my NDG stuff this fall I'm probably gonna get 1-3 EG pieces.

    Spring08 was weak, but this totally restored my faith in the brand.

    I need the brown diagonal wool parka. I must have it! BTW, for all... look forward to a couple of new affiliates, one with Engineered Garments, and a good complement to Gary (our unofficial Engineered Garments man) and Peasant. Actually, she should be here already.

    You guys are going to love the stuff she has. We are just trying to get the creatives ready. Actually, if someone wants to PM me, perhaps to help them with that, I might be appreciative [​IMG]

    Right, I mixed them up, Skookum isn't technically Centralia Knitting Mills. I can tell because they made me a swiss knit melton wool jacket, buttoned not zipped. However, my jacket's tag does state Skookum.

    Well I have it from EG that the parka is unlined. Ugh, no jacket purchases for me.

    I can't tell you how happy I am that I'm no longer limited to buying all my unlined jackets from Banana Republic.

    If it breaks your heart, you could always have a tailor put in a lining for you. I wonder if the Woolrich Woolen Mills parka will be lined though, the designs are pretty similar.

    I already inquired about that, and nobody is wiliing to do it. But wow, where did you find that parka photo and who is going to have it this year? I was hoping they were going to do a non-red plaid version of their mountain/trail parka this year, and that looks like it.

    They were sent around a few months ago for a showing they put on, you should be able to find a couple more if you look around online. Bergdorf's is still carrying them, and Sam mentioned that context will be getting it for fall too.

    Lord, it's hell trying to get through to Bergdorf, but I'll call again. I talked to Sam and I don't think they're getting that one.
