Made in New York, Engineered Garments took its name from a pattern maker hired to draft the first round of patterns. She claimed that the clothes were not designed but engineered due to the vast amount of detailing involved in each garment. The Japanese designer of the collection, Daiki Suzuki, agreed. Details from U.S. sportswear, outdoor and military clothing are all included in the collection and give Engineered Garments a unique and practical detailing missing in so much of American sportswear today. Engineered Garments forms part of the Nepenthes group which also features Needles.
