Woolrich and Engineered Garments work in collaboration once again, introducing a new collection for the Fall/Winter 2018 season. The joint capsule dives into archival pieces by Woolrich and highlights one of its most recognizable pattern designs -- the bright buffalo check. The entire collection is adorned in the re-imagined pattern in vibrant red and black tones.

The highlighting component lies at the textural construction of the pieces -- all of which have been carefully crafted with intricate details. Daiki Suzuki of Engineered Garments fuses traditional materials including "homespun wool, flannel cottons, brown duck canvas, and corduroy." Notably, the use of 'double cloth sateen' is one of the more updated fabric materials. A standout item from the collection is the relaxed cape as it showcases contemporary shapes and traditional patterning.
