Seems to me that if he's upset about the decline of "real" luxury, haute couture, high design, etc. -- the worst offender is what Hedi Slimane is doing at SLP.Realize Hedi *just* started doing couture, but SLP is still mediocre-made products selling on hype and marketing. Basically repackaging Seattle grunge and Southern California rocker culture and selling it at super high prices.

Let me check and get back to you.
I've handled them. They're nicely built and definitely not chunky at all. Lasts are a lot closer to what you might find from Edward Green or C&J than Alden (or any Italian company).
Definitely not trolling. I have a 60/ 40 mountain parka that I use for hiking and outdoor stuff. But it's noisy and that Ventile stuff looks a lot more interesting/ practical.
I think you should treat this as a criminal case. You may or may not get your jacket (or your money back), but you'll have to work on this as though your money has been stolen. All the excuses that were given before -- Korean holidays, Dan's father dying, bad inventory system, etc -- were pretty much excuses. From what I've seen, it's pretty clear he took ToJ money, invested it in Libertine, and hasn't been able to get the return he expected. Thus, no money = no jacket...
Hm, some MTM outdoor gear company. http://www.firemore.com/
Kind of random, but I've been wanting to get into bird watching and apparently there's a line of country clothes targeted towards bird watchers. Aside from the logo on the chest, stuff looks pretty good, actually. http://www.countryinnovation.com/clothing/jackets
