Engineered Garments, NYC

Every season the only new collection I make sure I peek at is Engineered Garments from New York.
It's a really interesting response to the current vintage, tweedy, cycling, moustache trend.

They make me think of an expression I hate - 'Period with a twist'. Usually this loathsome phrase means 'I am too scared of bonnets and corsets to allow you to do something truly interesting' but in the case of these collections they really are modern but come out of a strong period reference.
And they've been doing it since 2005.
