Everyone here at Tools for Working Wood wants this sharply appointed shirt. The soft brushed cotton twill is a nice medium weight for fall, and about as heavy as you'd want in a shirt with this much tailored detail. For the Fall/Winter '15 season Engineered Garments has gone nearly all black, with Designer Daiki Suzuki exploring texture and pattern, in a monochrome pallet. The dark fabric won't look dirty after a day spent working, and because of details like the thick mother of pearl buttons, and the split yoke, this shirt can easily be dressed up or down.
The construction detailing of the 19th century were inspired by the tailor made dress shirts of the previous century. Daiki Suzuki, designer for Engineered Garments, has developed 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.
The detailing that goes into the 19th Century BD shirt is entirely un-necessary - but absolutely wonderful. Single Needle tailoring makes for seams the won't pucker over time. Thick, mother of pearl buttons, 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 extras 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.
