The Engineered Garments Explorer Jacket

The new Explorer jackets in the Engineered Garments FW10 collection have shipped out to the few stores that ordered them and I was able to acquire a version in the olive colored ripstop cotton from Blake down in Portland. When I first pulled it out of the box, I was surprised by how heavy it weighs from the interior blanket lining and when worn it feels like armor (as much as cotton and wool can be). Read on to see more details.

The sleeves are lined with a subtle floral fabric, a nice touch that only the wearer would know about. Under the lining is also some batting for extra warmth.

The front of the jacket has several jetted-like pockets for easy access, and the lower two are lined in a contrast colored corduroy.

Other versions available are khaki colored ripstop, over-dye indigo cotton, and suede leather (which can be seen worn by Daiki Suzuki in the latest issue of Brutus).
