Nepenthes Hasegawa Journal: EG 19th Century BD Shirt

01

Image

—01. A firm favourite.

Words

As non-Japanese speakers might expect, Google translate makes a total mess of this conversation between Daiki Suzuki and Popeye fashion director, Akio Hasegawa. However, if you're a fan of the Brooks Brothers-inspired, single needle staple – a constant in the Engineered Garments mainline and Workaday collections since both began, and an item that started life as a Nepenthes New York product in the days before EG – it's well worth deciphering.

Words

Nepenthes recently posted a link to an interview with Daiki Suzuki, the influential Engineered Garments designer. Perhaps you paid more attention in school, or are generally just a much better person than I, and will be able to do more than just look at the accompanying imagery.

Engineered Garments Twill Plaid Classic Shirt

—01. Straight hem with side vents.
—02. Flap pocket.

Words

The Classic Shirt by Engineered Garments is a personal favourite of mine: there's just something about it's boxy, slightly awkward cut that I like, and the collar and pocket details are both pleasantly refreshing. Although I'm not a big plaid wearer this version is certainly appealing, and a nice hand-me-down gift that was recently bestowed upon me, has reminded me that a good plaid does indeed go a long way.

Engineered Garments Hooded Down Vest

—01. Large drawstring hood.
—02. 90% Goose Down interior.

Words

Almost every season there's something I see early on, most likely in lookbooks or online, that I pass over on initial examination; only to reassess my opinion when I rediscover the piece in the flesh. The first time I saw this particular vest I wasn't too taken with the hood detail, and so, not being much of a vest wearer in the first place, didn't spend too much time analyzing its appeal. I have, however, spent a moment or two reexamining it recently; and my initial stance is slowly beginning to waver. Although I keep visualizing both outfits and opportunities I might have for the vest itself, I probably won't ever make up my mind which colour I prefer; which luckily for me also means I won't ever have to take back all those misguided things I might have once said.
