The first deliveries of the Engineered Garments SS11 collection are now getting to stores in Japan and one of the new designs is the field shirt which has two large inverted pleat pockets – a feature rooted in both older military and hunting gear, depending on where you look. I would expect that stores in [...]

A Proper Rugby Shirt

Good rugby shirts are difficult to find in the U.S. and I was glad to see one being sold in the Engineered Garments FW10 collection. Not wanting to pay $160+ for one though, I waited a bit until they hit the sales this month and purchased the navy/grey version for a more reasonable amount. The [...]

Engineered Garments Suiting

Now in stock at the Nepenthes NYC store. They note that it’s made in Haverhill, Massachusetts, so I would assume these are being made in the new Southwick factory that is located there. Some of these pieces have showed up in previous seasons, but the retail distribution was very limited.

Parkas

I’m generally not too interested in Steven Alan’s designs, but his teams do occasionally produce some great stuff that I would consider. For example, these colored parkas. A 60/40 parka from FUCT. The patches are appropriate. The blanket lined storm parkas from Engineered Garments. The shell is made from a heavy duty ripstop cotton. Correction: [...]
