Engineered Garments Bedford Jacket
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...
Many seasons of Engineered Garments Bedford Jacket in a wool and corduroy and variations.
FIT & DRAPE:
Semi tailored piece with an angular flow.
Standard length with no vent and straight hem.
Two large hip pockets and usually two chest pockets cut on the bias. The Bedford has some variation in the pockets throughout the seasons, sometimes with one chest pocket and sometimes with two. Another variation adds an additonal waist pocket on the right side where traditional jackets have a pocket for a watch.
ARM & SHOULDER FIT:
NOTES & STYLE POINTS:
This jacket is meant to be worn. Removable buttons so it’s easy to launder as often as you need. Peak lapel for a slightly more elevated look that feels traditional and romantic, but not flashy. Extra stitching across pockets at stress points and for bonus style points. Panel construction with workwear roots, but is so much more.
You can do anything with this jacket. A cross between a blazer and a chore coat, the Bedford Jacket is a catchall for outerwear. Just enough tailoring to clean up a look or worn as a suit, but casual enough for wearing with a tee and shorts.
