Gone Fishing | John Muir
Engineered Garments WKDY take inspiration from the "Great Outdoors" for this season. The collection is based on classic Americana workwear essentials with a high emphasis on quality and cut, with all the garments being manufactured in New York.
The National Parks of American were initiated with a Scottish connection to John Muir, who was an explorer, mountaineer, conservationist, botanist, amateur geologist and writer of distinction. He developed a passion for wild places growing up in the coastal town of Dunbar, east of Edinburgh. At age 10, he emigrated to the United States with his family.
Muir embraced all nature from mosquitoes to mountain ranges, recognising that everything is connected. His passion for wild places led to a life-long quest to protect them. Muir’s writings helped people understand the importance of wildness. His activism saved Yosemite Valley in California and helped create the world’s first national park system.
'Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.'
