2007 S/S Engineered Garments - Page 3

post #31 of 219
There are some amazing pieces by EG for s/s07 that they did not feature in their lookbook.

I belive the model that they used that people were previously discussing is an artist whose tee shirts EG is distributing.

Is there a lookbook for retailers that is different than the ones shown on the EG website? If so, could you post scans?

Gary Drinkwater has some pictures of the S/S pieces he will be carrying that I will post (probably tonight). Both Gary (www.Drinkwaterscambridge.com) and Brian (www.peasantonline.com) carry are good guys and incidentally carry Engineered Garments, and I'd recommend both of them. Their customer base is different, and this reflects in the different pieces of the collection that they buy.

Diaki Suzuki, who is the designer and inspiration to the collections has an affinity towards clothing that has an" Americana" appeal. When I first met Diaki, it was 1985 and I was then working at Louis Boston. One of his first visits to a retailer in the US was Louis and I had the pleasure of being the person who greeted him as he entered the store. The rest has been a truely wonderful relationship.
He came to the US to source American products for the Japanese marketplace as he was then working for a Company called Nepenthes that had retail distribution there. In the 80's, there was a lustful desire for the "Americana" look in Japan and Asia. Pendleton, Woolrich, Alden, Ruff Hewn, Avirex, Cole Haan to name a few were the products he set out to buy for his company.
His passion for these timeless styles have led him to create his own interpretations of those classical models of "Americana" workwear, which to some translate into "Streetwear". Nepenthes is still his parent company and supports all his efforts.
In the past year he was named to design an exclusive collection of clothing for the Woolrich Company which he tells me will be distributed in the US in 2008.
I hope I have answered your inquiry and I'm sure now you will now appreciate his much sought after collections.

Best Regards,

Gary

Thanks for your info, much appreciated. Still it is a personal taste of mine that I don't like garments that look old and worn, I don't like work wear either, to be honest I think the Americana work wear is way over played on this forum. Not that I look down to the quality of these garments, I'm sure they're well made. However, for some reasons I don't like to associate myself with the look of construction worker which is the impression I got when I saw the pieces) Yes I'm very picky/bitchy and best wishes to Diaki's business

I'm a style shizophrenic, it's either rock tinted conceptual fashion OR utilitarian workwear (aside from the shoes, don't like any of that style). I must say EG is a label that releases garments that just stay in your rotation forever and that says something.

Moi aussi

Thanks for the tip.

I really like the cut of their hoodies, never tried them on though, maybe I should. How would you compare them to W+H slim fit un term of well, fit.

They are probably closest to the fit of the old Spruce Classic fit - so, more room through the chest and shoulders (but still pretty slim) than the W+H slim fit, and the hem is slightly longer than on the slim fits. The one thing that I like about Engineered Garments hoodies is the three-piece hood, which, properly done, fall more nicely than 2 piece hoods, such as those found on the W+H hoodies. The W+H hoodies are sturdier though, with better hardware. Pick your poison.

I have one of the thermal-lined EG hoodies and I'd say they compare reasonably closely to W+H in the same size. My medium EG hoody fits pretty close to the same through the chest as a medium slim-fit Spruce. The only big difference is that the EG is a bit longer (maybe an inch or so). The overall sillhouette of the W+H is a bit slimmer though, because the lining of the EG makes it thicker than a W+H hoody. The EG hoody is definetly the warmest I own, though! I'm not sure how much different these lighter-weight versions would fit without the thermal lining, though. The actual hoody looks exactly the same (same neck closure and same raglan sleeve detailing), so I'm guessing that they are the same reverse-weave versions made by Camber, just minus the lining. Judging by the measurements on chicken shack's page they seem to have just taken out the lining and not modified the sizing, so I'd guess these would fit a little more roomy than the lined ones.

As already mentioned, the flap in the pic below buttons onto the right side. But does anyone know if there's a set of buttons that will hold it on the inside of the left side? I usually wear my jackets unbuttoned/unzipped and it would look akward with the flap hanging out....

In the to pic that you posted, it looks that the flap is sewn in with it already oriented inside into the left, so it should stay inside even when you have it open. If there is a button that'd be sweet.
