The Engineered Garments 19th Century Button Down is the classic essential dress shirt single-needle stitched to perfection. Daiki Suzuki, designer for Engineered Garments, has maintained the 19th C. BD shirt as a staple of the EG line. Each season the shirt is offered in a new selection of fabrics or changes to the trimmings or details.

For Spring Summer 2014 we’re carrying the 19th C. BD in lightweight Lt. blue cotton oxford with oil slick iridescent buttons. The stitching is performed on a single needle machine, a labor intensive process that produces flatter seams that are less likely to pucker over time.

The amount of attention that has gone into this garment is entirely un-necessary - but absolutely wonderful. Arm gussets, side gussets, the button placket detailing, the zig-zag stitching under the collar, the split yoke, the gather at the cuff - all are details we don’t expect.

In-fact throughout the shirt, it seems rhyme has prevailed over reason to elegant effect, and to that we say Amen!

Engineered Garments clothing is designed and sewn in the USA.
