Shopping from 2005: EG Shooting Cardigan

Wool remnants at Centralia Knitting Mills

I tend to dodge the release of current clothing lines since most of the items are beyond my price point (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 high end clothing items I truly regret not acquiring. First among them is the Engineered Garments random loomed sweater from the 2005 Fall/Winter collection. In catalog form, it contains all the elements of a perfect sweater: cardigan style, complex pocketing, two-way zipper and an on-the-shrunken-side fit (doesn’t swamp the layers). I also love the red and black random loomed wool.
I’d trade the entire new EG line for women for the reissue of this one cardigan.

  1. Older Engineered Garments pieces like this frequently show up on yahoo auctions japan and you can find a lot of nice gems.

    Also, you’re probably going to love the Engineered Garments Fall/Winter 2009 collection. I actually thought of your blog while browsing through some of the pages in the lookbook.
