    @glam922 those are men's Engineered Garments pants and you should definitely pick them up. Women's has a different label and is pretty hard to come by. For general thread knowledge, EG women's line is "Fenwick Engineered Garments" and runs numerical sizing.

    i'd thought the same thing, but swatch packets - one for each person who contributes. For example, if someone donates a gren tie, another donates a hopsack blazer, and another donates a shell shoe, they get cut up and each person receives one piece of each back in their packet. There would left over pieces from the originals, and if we need a another swatch that someone donates, the new thing gets cut up and everyone already in gets the 1 new swatch, and the new person gets a packet with 4 pieces. And so on.

    Okay thanks for the knowledge. At first I wasn't sure as it looked like a men's pants, but since all the pants around were women's I got confused :eek:
    No go for the Rag & Bone one otherwise? This one I'm 99% sure it's for women.

    I'm using a stained gren as a mannequin tie - can't see the stains as the jacket covers it. I'd be happy to add the rear blade to the box. I think it's garza grossa.
