Wearability And Why It’s Important

One of my biggest style inspirations and hands down favorite designer, the man himself, Daiki Suzuki understands that wearability is key when it comes to garment design. I’ve built my wardrobe around various Engineered Garments and Woolrich Woolen Mills pieces because they all go so well together. A few years ago when I decided I wanted to put together a wardrobe that I wouldn’t get tired of, or that wouldn’t get out of style; I focused on putting together things that could just be “thrown on” and look good. This Knockabout shirt was one of the first American made shirts I purchased, and I’ve been wearing it none stop for the last few weeks. This is seriously the type of garment you pass down to your grandkids (if it’s still cool by then). Tons of pockets, triple-stitched throughout, and an amazing fabric. The Engineered Garments Workaday line is just basic, functional clothing made with top quality fabrics and sewn together by some seriously skilled workers in the New York City Garment District. These Workaday fatigues boast a moreĀ baggy fit and are seriously the most comfortable pants I’ve worn. The reversed sateen is super soft but really durable. Just simple, well made clothing that will continue to look better the longer you own it. Don’t buy a lot of stuff, just buy stuff that’s well made, that you like, that ou can easily wear, and that won’t fall apart on you.

  1. I feel the same about Epaulet. It feels good to find something that just seems to work for your style across the board. Plus it’s great when the garments are made Stateside.

  2. i couldnt agree more. this is where i want to be but i’m not financially in the place where i can fully fulfill this right now. i have started though i think, picking up pieces along the way.
