We present to you the Engineered Garments FW 15 collections in both Black & White and Color. As both have their merit, let it be noted that the essence of Black and White evokes an era that Diaki has touched upon for this season's offering. As described in their preview, there were early influencers on Diaki's fashion pursuits, such as Comme des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto, and Matsuda. Additionally, homage is paid to American fashion icons Jhane Barnes, Audrey Buckner ( who I had the pleasure of working with at Louis Boston ), Bill Kaiserman ( one of my fashion heros ), Ronaldus Shamask, Garrick Anderson ( a man who never received his due ), and Willi Smith. Fortunately for me, I've had career experiences with all of these individuals' collections and hold them as well as great designers.
On our visit to Engineered Garments in January to select our offerings for this season, we were alerted by Angelo to be prepared to se a lot of Black and Navy. At first, we thought that it was rather an extreme departure from his recent Colonial inspired Khaki presentations. It was though, only a new direction and a departure to a passionate arena that we had no difficulty understanding. These fabric choices are not ordinary, as you know they won't be. The rich melanges of color introduced are a kaleidoscope and his choice of sophisticated designs and textures speak volumes about his sensitivity to those elements.
In the near future we will post our choices for the season and as always, it's a pleasure to get this started. Enjoy!

Gary & Teresa

Gary, thanks as always.

I guess pre-order would again be difficult, not knowing the names of the apparels.

Hello Dino,

You're all welcome and I feel good after posting this because of my friendship with Daiki. I assume he knows nothing of these threads but would be humbled by your contributions.

I regards to descriptions of items, that can be accomplished but I'll admit my tech competence took me hours to get this up but I did it unassisted, Yay!!! In the week ahead, I'll have Steven tag each outfit with details and as always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions. We will entertain pre orders and special orders.

Gary, I felt good too looking at all the photos. It's something to look forward to.

I got my first workshirt about 2007-08 & it's still with me. During this period, brands came & gone in my wardrobe, but I'm still feeling for EG. Picking up a few items every season, mainly from the SS collection.

Hoping for two things:

1. That this is some sort of leather vest and not a jacket.



2. That these are brushed cotton, like the herringbone fatigues from last AW and not wool.

I've typed out the lookbook index so you guys can see which pieces are specifically featured in each picture, but it makes more sense to edit it into Gary's introductory post so it stays on the first page for reference going forward. I'll get on that shortly (in the next hour or so) and then we can all go nuts discussing fabrics!

edit: Orrrrrr by tonight.
edit 2: Gary and I want to do this right, so we're going to work together on it Wednesday so we can set it up in a clear, easy to understand way. I still have the list with me at home today, so feel free to PM between now and then. Thanks for being patient!

Cool, interesting stuff. I always get excited by how purple the navys show, but in reality I know they're just navy.

Lots of emphasis on interesting neckwear - like those big loop necklace things ?

Excited about the emphasis on the B1P pant, (As well as the B2B Jacket - is that corduroy in Slide 10?) and it looks like (or I hope) they took an inch off the inseam of the shooting pant, which I love but the way it 'stacked' was not a good look.

The thing to always consider with EG is that the lookbooks don't necessarily correspond fully to the stock and the buys - and that earth tone look tucked away makes me hopefully buyers had those options. EG FW14 and SS15 introduced me to a palette of browns, khakis, and olives that I'd like to continue to expand upon a little.



Plus, is that a solid colored Dayton Long Shirt I see? If so, its definitely the kind of item I snap up at MSRP when its still beaming hot out.

there's a bit of brushed herringbone cotton in the collection this year IIRC, don't fret.

as far as those cargo pants go, they might be my favorite thing from the whole run. AFAIK, We didn't end up picking them up but I'm kicking myself for not scooping a personal.

Good to know, the fatigues from AW14 are some of the best things I've picked up in ages.
