It’s obviously been a while since we’ve talked about anything style related however, today, that inspiration came from the unfaltering Japanese juggernaut that is Engineered Garments. We took an illustrated spin through some of our favourite get ups from the latest A/W ’16 look book. The brand, known for their combination of military, outdoor and sportswear inspired garbs come with the heat once again to brave the winter cold. The latest range takes their utilitarian approach to the common slew of items we can expect from them, with an assortment of chambray shirts, cotton twill jackets and pants, ripstop and wool outerwear pieces and a even touch of velour. The colour palette is pretty muted. We’re not getting away from the mix of grey, navy and olive tones anytime soon it’d seem.
The collection is extremely well put together here, placing emphasis on layering, yet maintaining a tailored silhouette. Unfortunately, if you want to re create one of the looks, you’re looking at making a sizeable dent in your bank balance. Well, for some anyway. Respect to whoever made the call to use older gentlemen as the models. Whilst it’s definitely been done before, I think it adds to the overall aesthetic. If you've ever held an EG piece,you'll understand where the name came from. The attention to detail in each piece is insane and providing you have the expendable dough, it's well worth investing in.
Click through here for the full set of images and cheers for checking in. The collection will most likely drop at The Bureau later on this year. On another note, if you check the EG homepage, you’ll find some images (some of which, I’ve collated below) from photographer JIMA. He’s worked with an impressive list of clients but most notably for me, as still photographer on A Place Beyond The Pines; a superb film I saw upon release at the QFT and actually just rewatched again last night. Pleasant coincidence. Check the work below.
