There are few brands quite like Engineered Garments, the mere mention of which can get even the most jaded connoisseurs foaming at the mouth. Though EG is particularly well-regarded for their twists on classics by other brands (Bass, Vans, and Barbour have all collaborated with the Japanese powerhouse) Engineered does plenty fine on their own, too.
Engineered Garments comes to us with their new Driver Jacket, made from an acrylic-coated nylon taffeta or cotton ripstop. Though the etymology of the jacket’s name is unclear, the 100% nylon piece is chock-full of details, in classic EG style. The two way collar and three front welt pockets are complemented by a throat closure and waist adjuster tabs.
Though the jacket looks more like what you might call a coach’s jacket, the thing sure will be good for driving too. The mustard and navy ones are nylon, which should cut the wind and keep the elements out, so you can drive with the windows down. Whereas the olive is made from a more breathable, lightweight cotton ripstop, which might suit those in more humid environs.
Available for $420 at The Bureau.
