During the formative, early stages of the brand, a pattern maker remarked that the garments they were crafting were not made, they were engineered.
This becomes clear when inspecting the depth and dimension of each piece. Whether a garment is reversible, adjustable, or features perfectly integrated compartments, an Engineered Garments items full functionality takes time to be fully realized. The brand blends distinctive fits and an unstructured, casual drape with smart, classic designs. Creative director Daiki Suzuki executes his unique aesthetic using American sportswear, workwear, and military garments as the foundation of his collections. Each season classic pieces like the Bedford Jacket are presented using Daiki’s ingenious use of fabrics, such as uniform serge, melton wool, broken twill and sateen. Handmade in New York City, this brand is under the legendary Nepenthes label, and features its trademark guarantee label sewed into every garment.
