    Gary, thanks for all the help over the years in acquiring the tough to find pieces. Hopefully the service will pick up at a later time.

    Oil Polloi has posted an interview of Daiki by Shinya Hasegawa, designer of Battenwear. It's one of the better, if not the best interview of Daiki to date. Certainly my favorite. Check it out here: http://www.oipolloi.com/engineered-garments-homemade-in-hells-kitchen

    timboplete: Cheers for the link to the Daiki interview. Great read. The below excerpt struck a particular chord with me, and it makes sense to me why I enjoy wearing the clothes so much and the connection I have with many of my favourite pieces from EG:

    "That said, I want people to have fun when they’re wearing Engineered Garments. I want them to take part in this world I’ve created. I think with most fashion brands, you pay a lot of money and then you have this ready-made outfit and it’ll definitely look good because it’s expensive and well made. But with Engineered Garments, I don’t want the clothes to look perfect immediately. I think people should have to put some work into it. I think it should only look really good if the clothes match your taste, and you bring something of yourself to it. I think of Engineered Garments as clothing for people who are really into clothing."

    Thanks, David. By far, the best and most insightful Daiki interview to date. I've been on the EG train for five or six years and, after reading that piece, I feel like I have gained so much more perspective on both the brand and its creator. A lot of food for thought in there.

    You guys. I have the S/S 2013 Field Jacket in a size Medium. Plan on selling it for $528 shipped if anyone's interested. Impulse buy on my part from Nepenthes. I'm based out in NYC for a meet up.

    I bought the S/S '13 Field Jacket size M from Nephentes on an impulse buy. Payed near $600 with tax. Anyone interested in a meet-up in NYC, I can do $530 or $530 plus shipping cost to mail it out. PM me.

    Not yet since most shops dont have their full stock in store yet, but your best bet is to call nepenthes nyc, they'll be able to tell you each and every stocklist who will carry them.

    It is in stock at EG Aoyama, where I bought it this week. The fabric is quite technical feeling and looking, and no comical pocket placements either, which is a welcome change for me. I think it's a worthy successor to the Bird Shooter. Like that one, it is a little longer in the body so it works for taller guys as well.
    The reason that it isn't available much yet is because it was actually just shipped out from production and the EG shops in NY and Tokyo got the first batch. I think you will have plenty of opportunity to buy it when the usual shops get their next delivery.
