Engineered Garments and UNIQLO Collaborate for "PUFFTECH" Collection
Daiki Suzuki helmed Engineered Garments, a New York City-based utility-centric fashion brand is teaming up for a third time with Japanese retailer UNIQLO.
The latest collection taps into similar themes found in their 2019 outwear collaboration, namely through three different offerings, all of which utilize a military aesthetic for inspiration.
Highlighting this “LifeWear” collection is the PUFFTECH series, consisting of three distinct outerwear designs – the “Short Blouson,” “Utility Jacket” and “Hooded Coat,” all integrating HEATTECH technology with Heat of Absorption padding, a joint venture between UNIQLO and Toray.
The Short Blouson, available in Dark Grey or Navy, takes inspiration from authentic flight jackets, expressed in a voluminous size and showcasing exclusive Engineered Garments name tag and logo buttons. In addition, its signature dot buttons on the front and patch pockets add a classic touch, while its ribbed sleeves and hem sport a distinctive knit construction.
On the other hand, the Utility Jacket, available in Black, Brown, or Olive and the Hooded Coat, available in Dark Grey, Black, or Dark Green, reflect a blend of classic and utility-style designs, with the mid-length Utility Jacket offering a relaxed fit and the Hooded Coat featuring a water-repellent finish for light rain protection. Both jackets carry the exclusive Engineered Garments woven name tag and logo buttons.
The collection is available for viewing via a dedicated page on UNIQLO’s official site and are scheduled to become available for purchase starting November 10. Items are priced between a range of $130 to $180 USD and will be available both in store and online.
