Words

Just last week we were in Florence seeing some of our favorite collections. Engineered Garments was of course at the top of our list and again did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded expectations on first viewing and we're quite excited about the spring collection to come. Daiki Suzuki used an interesting and intricate tonal embroidery as the starting point and balanced it with a very wearable military aesthetic and a nice variety of floral patterns. What might sound like his general formula was executed better than ever. To accompany the collection, a great offering of accessories and footwear will also be available. The leather soled boat shoes are sewn by hand in Maine, and the really nice woven leather belts are actually handmade by the lookbook model.

Summer Ties

01

Words

There seem to be enough weddings and parties going on lately to warrant the purchase of a couple lightweight summer ties. I find the fall season is much nicer with tweeds and wools when it comes to neckwear, but this spring produced a few that actually make me want to dress up more often. Gitman Vintage, Engineered Garments and Alexander Olch are the usual suspects for their shape, fabric choice and colour palettes.

Engineered Garments Workaday Tote

—01. Subtle contrast stitching.
—02. Removable shoulder strap.
—03. Tough off-white canvas.

Words

Two things that I really like, Engineered Garments and canvas bags. The Workaday canvas collection has been around for seasons now but the tote bag continues to elude me. It's mostly the price point of around $225 that has kept me from buying it, but it's always on my mind and at the top of my list. The Workaday range from Engineered Garments is probably my favorite capsule collection. It consists of great products across the board, and this tote bag is one of my favorites. I will definitely purchase it one of these days, but in the meantime you will also catch a glimpse of it in our spring issue of Inventory as well.

Look: Short Sleeves & Shorts

01

Words

The weather has been great the last couple of weeks, yet the shorts have only come out once so far. The real summer heat is only around the corner and I am personally after a pair of the EG fatigue shorts for the rest of the season. The MHL short sleeve work shirt is a great summer choice and you always need a pop of color, supplied by the Sperry Top-Siders this time around.

Engineered Garments Spring Workaday Oxfords

01

—01. New colours; Yellow & Pink.

Words

Some of my favorite items in the closet are my Engineered Garments Workaday oxfords. They’re sturdy, built well and have a nice casual silhouette. The fabrics are always tough and have a nice amount of character and feel. Over the last few season we’ve only seen white, blue and stripes – but this spring there are a couple of fresh colors added to the mix. Not many shops will be getting the Workaday products, but The Bureau now have the yellow and pink oxfords in stock.

One of my favorite fabrics that Engineered Garments used this spring was this rich red linen. It wasn’t used on too many items but the Cambridge pants and the Fatigue shorts both received the bright tonal treatment. While I ended up ordering the red pants, I am now having a slightly hard time wearing them as there is just so much of the bright red color. The shorts however offer the same pop, but in a more manageable dose. I’m still undecided whether to tough it out and try through the summer or convert the pants into a shorter version before it gets too hot.

Engineered Garments Intermediates Pull Over Shirt

—01. Pop over from the Intermediates collection.

Words

One of the few pieces to have surfaced from Engineered Garments’s Intermediates collection is this great looking pull over work shirt. It has similar pockets to the EG “Classic Shirt” but with only three buttons down the placket, a mellow scalloping on the side and a nice mix of color – its a pretty diverse piece of cotton. The collar appears to be a good size while the white buttons definitely prove to be the best choice.

Look: Spring Walk

—01. Canoe Mocs in Peanut Grizzly leather, coming soon.

Words

With the exception of a few rainy stints, the good weather has continued through the last week. I’ve even ventured out with no sweater and jacket a couple times, trying to coax the sun to come a little closer. I really like the natural tones with a small hit of pattern by this Engineered Garments polka dot belt. The reverse sateen is really a great fabric for the pants as well, and the new Irving trouser suits it really well. Otherwise, it’s nice and simple; a white BD shirt, casual hat to throw on and one of the more peculiar bags from Porter filled with the days essentials – which Simon had made note of a little while back. I also find that each summer I generally have one pair of mocs that take a firm beating, canoe mocs are one of the easiest choices.
