Engineered Garments and Barbour Have Another Collab in Their Pockets
2019 sees heritage heavyweights Barbour and progressive menswear powerhouse Engineered Garments collaborate for a second time. Initially collaborating for Fall ’18, previous collaborations from Suzuki and Urrutia’s NYC based brand has usually been limited to footwear and this migration into apparel garnered a lot of (well deserved) attention.
Mixing the flavor of both brands has resulted in some unique and imminently wearable outerwear pieces. With the depth and expertise of Barbour in the field of waxed jackets, combined with the visionary approach of Engineered Garments, there’s something for everyone in this latest collection. From the modest and paired back Graham and Irving jackets to the pocket-plentiful Thompson and Warby, the collaboration sticks with traditional colorways of navy, olive and sand.
Standing out among the collection is the Arthur gilet, which channels the silhouette of the infamous Barbour International motorcycle jacket with a distinctly utilitarian heritage look. Equally eye-catching is the drop shoulder and longer silhouette of the South Jacket which features a press-studded storm flap, front welt pockets and rear poachers pockets.
Available from £219 (~$280) at End.
