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...
FIT & DRAPE:
Big and spacious, expanding from the shoulders down.
Falls just past the pocket line with a pretty traditional parka length.
Large button closure pocket set up higher like on many anoraks. It is a very large and unique pocket with hand warmers, but is also a full service pocket that doesn’t get interrupted when your hands are taking a break. The more the merrier in that thing. Two lower side pockets have zip closures to secure some treasures.
ARM & SHOULDER FIT:
Standard across the shoulders. Elastic band and button wrist to batten down the hatches over gloves.
NOTES & STYLE POINTS:
The Over Parka is clearly military inspired with big resin buttons at the hood, a wind flap that locks in the hood drawstring, a short brim worked onto the cowl and a whole lot of utilitarian purpose. Pulling some additional details out of the Inuit-inspired anorak jacket gives it a little extra adventuring intent. Full zip in the back for allowing different levels of air flow and drawstring cinch bottom hem makes it ready to take on howling winds. But even with all those details, it maintains a clean look with a bit of fashion to the cut.
Toss this over your entire look. No matter how many layers you’re already wearing, this is the last one you’ll need for functionality and warmth. Works best with a military inspired fit.
