Creating clothing in that balance between casual and formal, EG accomplishes the difficult task of making things that dress up or down easily - playful patterns cut to tailored designs or relaxed silhouettes elevated by premium fabrication. Historical elements keep everything anchored in the truly classic, but with such a rich design vocabulary, there’s always a double-take of surprising details.
Here’s four soft, summer looks of how its all styled together…
Look One: The comfort of a clean look by combining some interesting pattern disruptions and tonal texture in an analogous earthy palette. Jungle Fatigue Jacket in a durable, highcount twill weave. Jacket details include a hidden button placket, bias cut chest pockets, expanding patch pockets, and a whole lot more. Work Shirt in a 100% cotton madras block check features historical pocket shapes that were pulled out of the 30s and 40s. Fatigue Pants in a natural cotton tone and summer weight.
Look Two: A tonal fit in perpendicular pattern and texture to draw the eye. This season's Loiter Jacket is made in a horizontal stripe jacquard with a bias-cut chest pocket that offsets the pattern. This version of the ever-popular Work Shirt is fabricated in a breathable linen/cotton blend grey chambray. Finishing off the fit are EG x Sebago Loafers that feature full grain leathers from 3 different reptiles for asymmetrically textured uppers + a toothy Vibram sole for getting around comfortably.
Look Three:Classic summer comfort in a clean pant and lounge shirt. Same Fatigue Pants as in Look One. The pants offer a great, straight leg fit for a casual look made famous by EG, but built from a fabric that doesn't put them out of place with a more tailored jacket when the sun goes down and you have some place special to go. Or just relax all day in the sunshine in a nicely patterned Camp Shirt. The shirt features a hip pocket on the opposite side panel to the traditional chest pocket + a great geometric pattern.
Look Four: The Bedford Jacket has a sophisticated silhouette and list of rich details, but is softened to a wear-everywhere, clever casual with an all-over desert camo/African animal print. In previous seasons, the Bedford is usually matched to some corresponding Andover Pants , but this time around it has been pattern matched to a pair of Fatigue Pants to maintain the overall motif. This is the type of thing that Engineered Garments does best - slight disruptions through fashion that feel refined instead of forced.
