1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    speaking of incredible shaw collars. Saw last month's Esquire with Daniel Craig "new Bond" and he sported a really good looking Polo by Ralph Lauren. I think it was a cardigan shawl sweater.

    They have this one on the web that I saw, not a cardigan though

    And if you search rakuten, one store has pics of the slim fits and shawl collar, and the coats

    Yeah, The Explorer Collective on Rakuten has pics of lots of Engineered Garments and W+H stuff. Similar demographic. Sort of urban outdoorsy.

    Um, yeah, I got it. And it is awesome! Um, unfortunately my connector (camera to computer) is screwed up, but I'll try to get a new one this weekend. It is still too warm to wear it.

    Wow! I like it. Is it true these run small? If I'm on the upper end of a Medium, should I order a Large?

    I am a sall medium - 5'11" and 150 lbs, with a 39" chest and 30" waist. The medium fits me snugly through the shoulders, chest, and arms, and is just slightly roomier in the torso. If you are a large medium (say, my height and 170+ lbs,) I would definitely recommend the large. Odin has this color and Steven Alan has the black. Not sure who else is carrying this model. I know that neither MAC, Drinkwaters, nor Peasant carries it.

    i'm really interested in seeing the EG hoodie as well, do they offer any other colors besides black and heather? I'm hoping that they offer a charcoal/wool colored one... also the pic of the black one at steven alan is gone since it is sold out, so any pics of the one you have would be great [​IMG]

    Cool. I was gonna go to MAC and check it out...good thing you said it's not there. Steven Alan doesn't have Mediums, so I guess I'm "stuck" w/ the bigger ones.

    This one is available in the American Rag in San Francisco. It's made out of recycled cotton and the design is a little different, as you can tell from the photo.

    Yeah, this hoodie is significantly different. There is no ribbing detail at shoulders and no ribbed side panel, and the hood is 2 piece (iirc), not 3. There is also no lining, so the whole thing is a lot lighter. The inside back quarters is lined with a cotton canvas piece with the label on it.

    Peasant has this in an oatmeal color. MAC, and Barneys, at least in Boston, has the charcoal/grey color shown above.

    You should email Engineered Garments with the specific question (if you want a medium). They'll be able to point you the right way. If they have any on hand, Drinkwaters will do special order with them.

    Yeah... most of their Engineered Garments stock is not in yet, though. It's an interesting place - quite conservative selection of recongizable high-mid to low-high makers(Schneiders of Austria, Robert Talbott, Carmina shoes) with some unknowns (Purple Noon - CIT's houseline (they make Armani mainline shirts), Aster, a pretty good shirt line with a reasonable pricepoint), with a fair bit of Engineered garments in the mix, and also the rather difficult to understand but interesting John Malkovich line as well. I would check it out just to chat with Gary, who is a good guy. I'll actually do some windows and put together some stuff just for Styleforum once he gets more stock in. I've done the windows a couple of times before, and they look a lot more like an Odin window than what Gary usually puts up.

    That Jack Spade wallet looks like a J. Fold Loungemaster.
