Engineered Garments SS13 at Jack Straw

With deliveries for spring/summer collections mostly done, I recently stopped into Jack Straw to check out its current selections including the latest from Engineered Garments. Over the past few seasons, the size and assortment of its picks have grown and is now one of the best places to track down items outside of Nepenthes NYC and Bureau of Belfast (EG takes up the entire back area of the store in an impressive display).

My favorite picks from this season include the new driver jacket in iridescent cotton twill, the red plaid bedford jacket, and the reversed sateen olive fatigue pants. In addition to the men’s shipments, they also have a nice capsule collection of the more interesting FWK pieces for women.

Checking out SS12 at Jack Straw

Spring is slowly arriving in Seattle and my favorite store downtown has received just about all of its SS12 shipments. From Engineered Garments, there are lots of great jackets, ties, and shirts including the rare 19th century button down in white polka dot.

While Junya Watanabe’s SS12 runway show had some outlandish gear, the pieces carried at Jack Straw are much more approachable (and wearable) – my favorites from this season include a fair isle pattern rollneck sweater and round collar Mackintosh jackets in navy and green.

Very interesting navy captoe boots from Yohji Yamamoto can be found in the back area.

A selection of Dries Van Noten pieces, including several light unstructured jackets for warmer weather.

Not pictured – the Boglioli patch pocket sportcoat in a shade of blue that would overload tumblr. From what I hear, some more great lines are on the way for this next fall/winter as well.

Jack Straw

Possibly the best men’s clothing store in Seattle right now is a small shop down on 1st Avenue called Jack Straw, which opened last year.  It carries excellent selections from a number of high end fashion lines, as well as clothing from more traditional makers.

Address:
1117 1st Ave
Seattle, WA 98101
