Knit cardigan (Engineered Garments 2005 Fall/Winter)
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.
