    agree with JET on the quality of Trovata. not worth it at those prices. but they are at that point where you can easily find Trovata at discount prices. and if you do buy from AE, don't forget about the 20% off SF link.

    i think i may pull the trigger on an EG item this year. i really like the corduroy jacket as pictured on the first model of the Fall 06 collection at engineeredgarments.com. and the Bedford jacket looks much more interesting after i saw the photos of it at rakuten.

    really like this Cole-Haan number from STP (~$200):

    in a similar vein, there's this Borrelli from VCH. but i'm sure it'll be gone before it gets marked down into my price range (currently $500):

    and of course i'll be perusing Yoox around Dec/Jan for markdowns on CP Company stuff. also looking for a nice moleskin jacket from them.

    Haha, I remember when I lived in the Bay Area and thought that weather in the 50s was too cold for just a light jacket. [​IMG]

    Heh, I know I know... I even came up here from SD where shorts and a hoodie get you through winter. I remember looking out at san jose state and seeing it was sunny in November so of course I threw on my shorts and tshirt and ran outside into fricken low 40 temps!

    I've never been a huge fan of Trovata, but I actually quite like Trovata's version of a hoodie this season. Just a basic zip hoodie with some interesting details - toggles, and the cool Trovata buttons on the side pockets. Oh, and a really eye catching lining. Sort of California style Trad meets streetwear. Either that, or the guys from Trovata had a sitdown with Wendy Mullins. Take away the hood, make it a baseball jacket, and the piece could be one of hers. I've always been a fan of her not too serious streetwear (although she has notable misses.)

    The Rag & Bone pullover hoodie and the Engineered Garments zip hoodie are really good anchor pieces this year (haven't seen the new W+H hoodies yet), and the Barking Irons fleece hooded cardigan/jacket is interesting too, even if the references are a little... diverse (the pictures on the Barking Irons site are much better than those on the ActiveEndeavors site, imo).

    I agree with JET (yes, man, I'm on the lookout, but dude, I haven't even gone shopping for myself in a bit) that Trovata jackets are oddly sized. I quite liked the details on the brown twill jacket, but my previous experience with their jackets makes me wary of buying one sight unseen.

    Odin and Steven Alan probably have it. I don't think that Gary (Drinkwaters) has it, but he might be worth a call.

    Yeah, Trovata stuff normally makes it to sales so I may take a look at it then. Would probably get limited use here in LA anyway.

    I'm wondering the same thing. I am going to need a jacket/hoodie for this winter and I'm not sure where to go yet. I'm thinking APC, R&B, or Arc'teryx, which are in three totally different directions!

    I've got a new Greige British khaki jacket in this hefty sort of poplin that's perfect for that transitional period when wool is too warm. Along the same lines, I have a light camel-colored Flippa K cord jacket.

    Once it gets cooler I'll be switching to sweaters and Harris tweed. I'm planning on getting a Sterlingwear between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but with the fleece lining I'll probably only be able to wear it for about two weeks, the way the weather's going. Still, since my college prospects involve nothing south of New York, I think I'll be getting plenty of use out of it next year.

    I was originally saving the cash for an APC piece, but none of the F/W06 stuff grabs me except the duffel coat, and I look stupid in duffel coats. Plus APC seems more expensive than it's been--I don't have the cash for a $500 casual jacket/coat.

    Plus, it goes on sale pretty reliably.

    Got this Neil Barrett jacket last week. I like the classic herringbone wool pattern spiced up by a modern cut. And, yea, wishful thinking, indeed - I'm so sick of this disgusting NYC summer.

    I like it, but the sleeves are a bit long, even for a coat.

    As for the summer, you shut your mouth sir. It's what, 85 there now? We're at 102.

    That's rad! But I would shorten the sleeves an inch or so.

    I rather like herringbone jackets done right, good cut too. And as someone who lives in a place that can get quite cold, overlong sleeves are a must in winter.

    Engineered garment also had a nice herringbone coat, if I remember correctly, anybody has pics/remember the season?
