Engineered Garments and Woolrich Woolen Mills Roundup

For those of you who happen to be in Osaka, the Nepenthes store is hosting an “Engineered Garments Special Week” [more info on Honeyee] and they’ll also be showing off the new Engineered Garments x Mark McNairy shoe line. The tall wingtip boots that I’m interested in will be priced at 68,250¥ (which is not too bad…).

And here’s a recap of stores with an online presence that have received SS10 goods in from Engineered Garments and Woolrich Woolen Mills. It can get difficult to keep tabs on all of this, so I hope this will help you in tracking down a certain piece that you’ve been looking for.

Engineered Garments FWK (for women)

There are a few that I’m missing, but I’ll update this post later.  Note that I regularly post new things as they show up online on my twitter account.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Fall/Winter 2010 Presentation

Pictures from the Woolrich Woolen Mills FW10 presentation are finally out and the looks are all very surprising. According to the Moment, Daiki Suzuki was inspired by early collections from Comme des Garçons and if I hadn’t had known it was Suzuki that designed them, I would have personally guessed that they were pieces from Junya Watanabe (former protégé to Rei Kawakubo of CdG).

Check out the pictures here. More will probably show up online later over the next few days.

In related news, WWD is reporting that Daiki Suzuki’s last collection for Woolrich Woolen Mills will be Spring/Summer 2011. Who in menswear can take over the reins?

Woolrich Woolen Mills is parting with designer Daiki Suzuki, who created the men’s collection with Woolrich licensee WP Lavori in Corso. Suzuki’s five-year contract lasts through spring 2011, but the parties are already working together to identify a succession plan. “I grew up admiring and wearing Woolrich, and to come full circle and design for them has been a really great adventure,” Suzuki said. “My contract will expire when the spring ’11 collection is completed, and I feel it is time for someone else to take the reins.”

I’m expecting that the last collection will be spectacular.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Spring/Summer 2010 Lookbook

Denimaniac has some lookbook images from the Woolrich Woolen Mills Spring/Summer 2010 collection up and many of the outfits are similar to the ones they had at their Pitti presentation last year. This season’s theme is not really my thing, but there are a few items in there that interest me.

The Upland Jackets

While its design is rooted in hunting, the Upland jacket is fairly versatile enough to wear appropriately in other casual situations and in most cases can be treated like a regular sportcoat if done with care. One of my more favorite combinations for this time of year with my grey wool version is to pair it up with a fair isle or black v-neck sweater and tie.

I’m hoping that this next year will bring more cotton twill versions in both black and navy for Spring.

Woolrich Woolen Mills SS2010 Preview #2

The Bureau posted a few pictures of items in the Woolrich Woolen Mills SS2010 collection on their blog this weekend and are worth checking out. I had written before that I didn’t care for how the collection was presented at Pitti, but after seeing more of it I think that many of pieces would be great to wear on their own.

The navy Maine guide jacket below will be definite buy for me.

Woolrich Accessories

From one of Barney’s holiday mailers.  I’ve checked them out in store and they’re all pretty nice, but they seemed 20-30% more expensive than what they should be priced at.

Update: All of the items are now available for purchase on Barneys.com.

Here are the wallets.



The Maine Guide Jackets

The Maine guide jacket is one of the two most iconic pieces from the Woolrich Woolen Mills collections, the other being the Upland jacket.  While it changes slightly from season to season, the general style has remained the same.

The two above are my own from the FW2008 season and are my favorite versions so far, in that the throat latch is fixed in place and the left breast pocket includes convenient pen holders.  If appropriately layered, the corduroy on the right is suitable to wear throughout the winter here in Seattle, and the melton wool version on the left is reserved for just the coldest of days.  Included in the picture is a shawl collar sweatshirt and knit gloves from J.Crew, an Engineered Garments cotton scarf, and a wool cap from Christy’s of London.

If you were to have just one jacket from the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection, it should be the Maine guide jacket.

Available at Context, Farinelli’s, Legion, Tres Bien, The Bureau, and Coggles.
