Bedford Jacket - Dark Navy PC Poplin
The Bedford Jacket exemplifies the Engineered Garments design ethos. Sitting somewhere between chore coat and blazer, it combines workwear and classic American sportswear into something that’s undeniably EG.
Cut in a relaxed, boxy shape not too dissimilar to what you’d see from Bill Cunningham’s beloved French worker jacket, it’s the infusion of blazer DNA that is so genius. The single-breasted body and soft lapel collar mean you can throw this over just about anything and be ready for action. The whole “boardroom to the bar” thing is a bit of a cliché but it’s actually perfect for this jacket. The only difference these days is the “boardroom” is home and the “bar” is a different room at home.
Utility comes from the four patch pockets on the body, allowing you plenty of places to chuck your essentials without needing to carry a bag. There’s a bunch of reinforcement around all of the high-stress areas to ensure this will outlast just about everything else in your wardrobe. EG's PC Poplin is lightweight and hard-wearing guaranteeing years of use.
