The pocket detailing on the Engineered Garments work shirt is very distinctive and in the last year or so it has been used as "inspiration" by so many other companies and designers it is incredible. You can not walk a trade fair in the last while and not be amazed at the number of people that have copied it. It is amazing the influence that this one little booth at the Pitti fair has had across Europe and beyond.
Daiki took the design from a shirt that originated in the 1920s by Big Yank. He introduced it in spring 2000 in Japan and then started to sell it in the U.S. for Fall 2004. Post Overalls actually had this shirt in their collection in the early 1990s but i think it is fair to say that it is the EG one that has had the recent impact.
In the last five to six years this shirt has become a staple in the shop and below are some photos of this seasons offering, including the light blue chambray that Engineered Garments made exclusively for ourselves. Also included are a couple of images of an original Big Yank.
