    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.

    In knitwear, I've only seen the Field Wool Cardigan, at Unionmade. You might want to give them a call since they don't have that online, which means they have other items not online too.

    I just called Unionmade, and they bought the Cardigan and Lodge vest, but there were some production delays and those haven't been shipped out yet. The SA I talked to said the vest should be around 350 and the cardigan 500 and they should be arriving (hopefully) within a few weeks. Also he said that he will be updating the site when he can, and that it just takes some time.

    (So thanks Timpo! If you're ever in NYC or Boston I definitely owe you a beer for all the help/ knowledge you give out.)

    Doesn't the mountain parka have a cotton shell? This would be a deal breaker for me. At least wool dries quickly and doesn't get or feel soggy in the snow/rain. My approach to Chicago winters has always been to layer, often with a heavy-ish wool mid layer topped with a lighter-weight waterproof shell, like the fisherman's caguole I picked up from Albam a few seasons ago.

    I think it's a 65/35 poly/cotton shell. None of the product descriptions state that it's water resistant/repellent so I'm guessing the fabric's not treated in any way?

    ^ The problem with a place like Chicago is that as you go about your day outside, your clothes accumulate snow/ice/precipitation. All that stuff melts the instant you go inside, leading to soggy, waterlogged clothes that will just freeze and feel colder the next time you go outside. Waterproof/heavily water-resitant is the only way to go in the midwest, IMO.

    Like I said, I layer and wear a light waxed cotton shell from Albam; my roommate prefers her heavy, wool-lined, knee length parka from Filson, also waxed cotton. That said, we don't drive, and so do lots of walking... A 60/40 might do you OK if you're not out in the elements for extended periods of time.

    If you're a size Medium then I believe Ryan is selling one in the market place here. Might one to give Odin a call, they've got some stock in but haven't updated their site. Can't think of any other place that I've seen buy it though.

    Has anyone had their stream jacket altered? I was wondering if it is possible to shorten the sleeves and maybe take it in a bit without it being a huge operation. Sorry if this sounds stupid but I wasn't sure if this could be altered like a sport coat.

    I haven't had mine altered. Just take yours to your trusted tailor, or one who comes highly recommended. They'll let you know if it's possible or not. A good tailor won't just do whatever you tell him.

    A friend is about 5'7" 160 and the small seemed to fit well.

    Good, but not as good as Engineered Garments.

    Interested in what makes you think this. I would give a slight edge to WWM because of my experiences with the outerwear but to me the brands seem to be virtually identical quality wise.

    Its a small point I'll admit, but while I've never had a problem with EG, the buttons on every single piece from WWM (6 pieces) arrive loose, and/or actually fall off; not every button per se, but a least one button on every garment. The fabric is comparable, but the production is not as...tight. Remember these two lines are not produced by the same company, only designed (until F/W '11) by the same man.

    jryder, i think you have some good points, and i too have had some wwm pieces arrive with loose buttons, but i have also had the same thing with eg stuff (especially with the summer 10' workshirts).

    does anyone know what state the wwm stuff is produced (the factory)?

    I just ordered a parka from WWM. Hope it will keep me dry and warm here in Chicago.

    Pretty sure EG is sourced from a number of different manufacturers. I would bet that WWM is no different.
