Daiki Suzuki, the visionary behind Engineered Garments, digs classic WASP style. But he pulls his true inspiration from the classics of the American workingman (think Filson, Carhartt, Dickies). His painter’s pants, khakis, blazers, and suits are all casual, tough, and unstructured (that suit, for instance, isn’t for the office).
The silhouettes are tapered but not skinny. The vibe is masculine and laid-back, like you could break out the tools at any moment and start building. (We said could—not should.)
