It’s recognizable, but still new and edgy. And it’s not design, but engineering according to founder Daiki Suzuki. He started the brand Engineered Garments in 1999 after working as a buyer for the Nepenthes clothing store. He crafts unique constructions inspired by classic tailoring, sports- and workwear, outdoor, and military uniforms “with meaning and hidden qualities”. These engineered garments “become more personal through the experiences you have with them” according to Suzuki. He was named “Best New Menswear Designer” by CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) in 2008, and he is listed as their first ever Japanese member.
