Engineered Garments Workaday Revitalizes Vintage Americana for SS20
Shortly after unveiling its collaboration with Barbour, Engineered Garments is already back with a concise SS20 lineup, this time under its diffusion line Workaday. The label has presented an assemblage of warm-weather garments that puts a refined spin on vintage Americana and workwear staples through its distinctive Nepenthes lens.
Featured is a span of chore coats, denim trousers, elongated trench coats, chambray button-ups, shoulder bags, paisley bandanas, plaid shirts and patchwork bucket hats colored in rich indigo dyes and creamy ivory palettes. One noteworthy piece is a long trench coat that’s detailed with thin, light mint pinstripes over a creamy ecru base. It comes with silver-toned buttons and wide collars, while deep pockets at the chest and waist round up the jacket’s details.
Another highlight is a pullover shirt embellished with bold pink and blue vertical stripes. The piece sees crisp white buttons along the central three-quarter-length upper closure, complemented by a pentagonal finishing at the base. A semi-boxy fit, loose sleeve cuffs and twin chest pockets finish off the garment’s design. Other pieces like the floral-print button-up, color-blocked oxford, raw denim pants, striped tie and khaki bucket hat complete the concise assemblage.
