Mr. Suzuki loves a detail, and he’s packed a lot into this seemingly simple field jacket from Engineered Garments SS13 collection. Amongst many details of the High Count 60/40 Field Jacket are a detachable hood, a wrap around game pocket, a zippered skirt (to extend the length of the jacket), throat tab, umpteen pockets, reinforced elbows, and (what I like to think is…) a Binoculars chest tab (although I’m almost certainly wrong). I’ve rarely been tempted by a summer parka (my only other one is an Engineered Garments field parka from years back), but this new addition has got me staring down my credit card. Also check out Engineered Garments Japanese blog for a wealth of detail shots.
