Knit cardigan (Engineered Garments 2005 Fall/Winter)
Random loomed wool remnants at Centralia Knitting Mills
I tend to dodge the release of current clothing lines since most items are typically beyond my price point (see new Barbour x designer collaborations), are only available in Japan/Italy/UK or end up being total design disappointments.
In the last decade, however, there are a few new clothing items I truly regret not acquiring. First among them is the Engineered Garments random loomed sweater from the 2005 Fall/Winter collection. At least in catalog form, it contains all the elements of a perfect sweater: wool, cardigan style, four front pockets, heavy duty two-way zipper and an overall (body hugging) trim fit. I also love the random loomed wool.
I must say that I’d trade the entire new EG line for women for the reissue of one random loomed shooting cardigan.
