I don't have a makeup which would be definitively better than any of the above, nearly all of which I really like, but just some general thoughts: - for a contrast tongue on the waxed flesh, perhaps using the reverse of the same leather would be interesting - red dainite with the natural CXL is a really nice detail - I'd like to see a partially structured toe, the unstructured toe I have is collapsing and the fully structured is a bit too 1950s-dispatch-rider for me -...
I dunno, I'd be lucky to get away from a mirror with one on, I like them on others but would almost certainly be a disaster on me.Google fails me here, did you mean Trunk?
I don't think I could pull off the shawl in a genuine fit, but they look so nice I've considered getting one just to cosy up with in my study at home.
Another drop of the shawls at TBB if anyone's interested - twill plaid, grey HB, brown HB, brown homespun.
The C&J Tetbury is dainite soled as well, no?
Knit jackets in the 3rd TBB drop, very nice. Expedition jacket looks great. I think I have shot my bolt for this season on the shawl collar knit though. Also, "Boumemouth" shirt? I can't tell if that's a deliberate misspelling or someone's seen "Bournemouth" with a handwritten "r" & "n" run together.
I think J Crew carry Dept B, or you might be able to find Barbour SL somewhere which is also a slimmer fit. Otherwise I'm not sure what there is in the US - I would guess Filson might do a similar waxed jacket or you might like one of the options at Epaulet.
Traditional Barbour jackets are fairly loose in fit, but I think the newer Dept B or xTokihito stuff is slimmer fitting.That looks like a moto style leather, which to me are some of the most minimal looking leather jackets - the biker style you're thinking of is probably the double rider. I have no experience with Boss in any capacity but I suspect you would be paying a large premium for the label, whether that is good or bad is up to you.Don't know what quality/price...
There's quite a few decent-looking sweats around at the moment. Joe McCoy's maybe, if you want an old school repro. EPLA are doing hoodies too if you want something less rigorously heritage. My gym bag is by Briefing, US-made, heavy-duty nylon, I think they make for the military so it's fairly hefty stuff. [edit] quick check, it's the "gym wire bag"
