Dandy Americana from Engineered Garments

    Much like Nigel Cabourn, Engineered Garments is all about infusing vintage classics with a shot of contemporary eccentricity. And, while Cabourn peers fanatically into the British sartorial archives, for Engineered Garments it's all about Americana.
    The eveningwear themes displayed in recent seasons continue through two notable silhouettes. The first is a laundered wing-collared casual shirt with a visible tab plackett and a single handwarmer chest pocket; the second looks to the Edwardian era with its peaked lapel tailored jacket featuring aggressively cutaway corners.
    Military details come through via a story made up from vintage deadstock cotton in olive, laundered to create a slightly stiff surface texture. The fabric is used most dramatically on the brand's blanket-lined hunting-inspired outerwear with contrast corduroy collars. Key pieces include a cape and a loop-fastening field coat.
    Other highlights include Engineered Garments casual tailoring in herringbone and corduroy, its contrast pattern ties and patterned wool porkpie hats.
