East Village boutique Den has just unveiled its next guest label: Engineered Garments. "Fittingly for a brand that bases its aesthetic on the workwear of turn-of-the-century miners and laborers (albeit with a smart, urbane twist), Engineered Garments and its head designer, Daiki Suzuki, have collaborated with Den's staff to transform the space into a tribute to the traditional American General store. In addition to Suzki's shirts, sweaters, pants, and jackets—all of which could do double duty in the Adirondacks and Cobble Hill—the 'Country Store/EG' will offer similarly useful town-and-country gear such as Faribault Blankets, Dayton workboots, and Duluth Pack's canoe bags."
