this is the first time it's being offered but assume the quality and such is the same as the full duffel.
I'll be completely honest - not really into that jacket design. Maybe it's the houndstooth like a previous user said...
Damn, tempted to give that trucker a try. Great value. Where's @gaseousclay? They gave him exactly what he wanted.
The waxed cotton that Gustin (and many other fashion brands) use isn't really meant to be a durable outdoor fabric. It's tough and can take a beating, but the waxing is more aesthetic than anything. They will repel water somewhat in the beginning but the wax wears off faster than something like Barbour, Filson, etc. I imagine re-waxing the jacket would make it more waterproof.
Anyone receive the lined trucker? If so, how is it?
I've offered some ideas/critiques in the past but also thought Mauro was open to it, since he's requested them previously. I do think closing the thread might hurt the brand since there's relatively little communication outside of it, but Mauro is more familiar with the type of hits the blog/site get. Look at Gustin's thread - full of complaints about their clothing & wait times, yet they continue to do well. Ultimately, people are not complaining about your clothing...
Received my bomber and really love it. The only thing that would make it better for me are pocket outlines to make it more "bomber-esque". Awesome piece as is though.
I think it's just the nature of the fabric/pattern. Same thing happened to my chambray version but I don't care that much. I guess you could get it tapered a bit by a tailor.
ok, stalker. A.) I've never bought those products from Epaulet B.) None of the items you mentioned were new designs under those labels , they simply updated and popularized classic designs (I would consider Filson's design more unique than any of these, though it seems Gustin changed their closure strap which was very Filson-esque), and C.) There's a difference between building a brand on copies and an established brand offering their own take on "classics".I already said...
