“Whatever it is you’re seeking won’t come in the form you’re expecting.”

Over the past two or three years, I’ve drifted away from this materialistic approach that the whole menswear blogging scene sort of sent me and many others into. I still love clothes, I guess I should say that I still love EG. The aesthetic, and the ethos of the brand is what has kept me interested for the past 7 years. Daiki has said many times that Engineered Garments is more a lifestyle than just simply clothing, and I think that is accurate. I wanted to build a wardrobe that would go well together without having to think about what I wore everyday, I know that seems lazy but that is what I wanted. Seeing the evolution of the fabric through wear and wash has always intrigued me and adds to the character of our garments. The work shirt here was the first piece of EG I ever bought, 7 years ago and I still wear it today. Yea, it’s seen better days, and it’s patched up in about 19 different places but it has a story. There is beauty in that. Little by little I’ve built up a really solid collection of clothes that I enjoy wearing everyday, whether to the office or to go camping. I don’t care if they get dirty, beat up, or even ripped (as long as it’s patchable).

  1. Some clothes have a certain warm feeling about them and this seems like one of those.

    I’m truly feeling you on this, man. Your blog helped cement my love for EG, and as much as I’ve tried to explore outside their line, it simply reinforces how perfectly Daiki speaks to my sensibilities: simple, beautiful, comfortable, and enduring. Sweet shots, brother!
