This will be the first of many Engineered Garments posts.
One of my favorite jackets this season has been the WA field jacket, which for as long as I’ve been following it is a new addition to the line. Unnecessary details of the original military versions were left out (namely zippered hoods and epaulet straps) and only the bare necessities were left in. The pockets are fastened with plain covered buttons, and you can safely store eye or sunglasses in the chest pockets without worrying about scratches. I’m slightly torn on whether or not I like the 65/35 poly cotton fabric for this jacket, but it has performed well and is light enough to wear in warmer weather.
As far as I know, they were only available at Hejfina (Chicago) and at a few different Barney’s locations. I believe they will also be returning in the Fall/Winter collection this year in heaver fabrics.
