Japanese men's collection. Takuji Suzuki and his bother, Daike (the man behind Engineered Garments) both developed a passion for clothing at a very young age, each amassing an impressive collection of vintage American workwear and military clothing. While Daike came to America to launch EG, Takuji stayed in Japan and became a sought after stylist and creative director for men's fashion. Although Takuji formed the first iteration of the brand in 1999, he didn't officially launch ts(s) until 2009.
