The latest issue of Details magazine has, in one spread, a guy wearing what appears to be a muted grey, brown, and light blue Prince of Wales sports jacket, a blue and white striped shirt with a contrasting white collar, a dark blue dotted tie, and a blue and white pocket square.


I became a fan of the “Americana workwear” clothing when I first walked into Drinkwaters in Cambridge sometime in the winter of 2003. At the time I didn’t know Gary Drinkwater by name (though I had already met him while he was working at Stonestreets,) but I gotten a mailer. I was particularly interested in a brand called ‘Engineered Garments” that I’d never heard about but had been mentioned on a blurb on the store in a free local magazine.
