err, I'm 99% sure that the jackets/outerwear aren't shipping anywhere, not even in NDG, until November.

I've seen the t-shirts. Great prints, but I can't tell if they're still printed on American Apparel or not so I'm not risking it. (Cloak, Nom de Guerre (in the past, dunno about this season), and Engineered Garments charge $60+ for printed AA shirts!)

Damn, I'd be pissed if I found out a shirt I bought for 60 bucks was an AA tee. Kinda cheapens their reputation also.

Cloak shirts are something close to $150 in Toronto. For a printed American Apparel shirt. Actually what takes the cake is that they're wolf prints. Yes. Wolves. edit: I have no problem with high-priced t-shirts (I own quite a few) but if you're charging over 40 bucks you damn better well make sure they're cut&sew.

i'm guessing that the m-65 will be $500 and the sweater $280 or so.

$500 for an M65? Can you really build a business around people being that stupid?

Newsflash: Designer/brand-name M65 does not equal military surplus M65

When you've done enough to an M65 enough to justify a $500 price tag, I'm pretty sure there's not much M65 left.

They're Russel Moccassins. They look a bit like these, but the picture's low res and Russel does a lot of custom work. If you really want them, you could just get them made.

Didn't know that Cloak printed on AA, but I am pretty sure that Engineered Garments are cut and sew, at least this season. In any case, the ones I saw were made in Canada, so they were not AA in any case... However, however much I like their other stuff, especially sweaters and outerwear, I can't say that I liked this season's Engineered Garments tees too much. I mean, they aren't horrible, but I wouldn't pay $55 for one either.

the EG shirts at Nomad have AA hangtags right underneath the sewn-in EG tag... that's kinda like adding insult to injury.
