Engineered Garments 19th Century BD Shirt
Creating clothing in that grey area between casual and formal, EG accomplishes the difficult task of making things that dress up or down easily. Versatile styling and detail rich, there are few brands that can pull off what EG does with finesse.
We’re perpetually excited to see what Engineered Garments is going to release every season. There are always some new things in the mix - special pieces that stand out and make statements - but the backbone of every collection is a core of EG originals in new colors, fabrics and patterns. Each one is the gold standard for its type.
This feature is part of a series that highlights Engineered Garments' signature pieces...
19th Century BD Shirt
FIT & DRAPE:
Longer fit with a big scoop on the hem that tucks in nicely. Slightly longer tail than the front.
Long body that ends at the bottom of the hip.
Usually features a classic single pocket on the left breast, but there are variations on this one like many of Engineered Garments' signature designs.
ARM & SHOULDER FIT:
Standard on both.
NOTES & STYLE POINTS:
A longer collar than EG’s other offerings - harkening to 60s Ivy Style. Collar buttons down like classic formal shirting. The placket stops before it hits the hem and allows it to drape interestingly. Bunched at the shoulder hem and spine to keep the shape flowing.
Engineered Garments is all about reverse layering. Wearing this under a shorter jacket and allowing it to blouse out is really how this is meant to be worn, and adds both a non-traditional layering pattern and an interesting silhouette that feels advanced.
