Engineered Garments was officially founded in 1999 in New York by Japanese designer Daiki Suzuki, and his vision of fashion immediately focused on vintage and casual clothing, designed with high quality materials. As an in-house brand of the Japanese company Nepenthes, Engineered Garments has progressively grown, with the production of apparel influenced by its Japanese origins but also by Suzuki's passion for vintage or used American clothing.
