Engineered Garments NB (New 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.

NB (New Bedford) Jacket
FIT & DRAPE:
Slightly roomier than its predecessor, the NB Jacket has the body of the Loiter.
A bit longer than the original Bedford, this jacket fits almost like a modern chesterfield.
Usually two large hip pockets and two chest pockets cut on the bias. However, like the original Bedford, there is some amount of creative flexibility over the seasons when it comes to pockets on this one.
ARM & SHOULDER FIT:
NOTES & STYLE POINTS:
The NB Jacket is like the love child of the Loiter and Bedford - taking the good attributes of both. Angled four pocket setup and the peaked lapel are taken right off the Bedford, drape and cut is from the Loiter, but it’s a bit longer than either parent.
Same as the Bedford Jacket. The NB plays nicely with everything. It has a bit less of the workwear chore coat influence and more of the formal heart of a traditional blazer than the earlier model without losing its ability to pair it up or down.
