Pretty common on technical jackets, used for tensioning the jacket in the body or hem. Could have that functionality or could be for looks.

^ No, it actually packs into the front pocket and you use the straps to wear it as a fanny pack. (Serious post)

The zipper on the front pocket is the kind that works from either side, so I'm pretty sure they're for carrying it around (either from the shoulder or around the waist) when you turn the jacket inside out and pack it in the pocket.

FWIW, I cut mine off because they added odd-looking bulk directly over the stomach It's a nice little jacket, though I would've never bought it if it hadn't been 75% off.

They're actually entirely inside the front pocket, and therefore worthless for bringing the jacket closer to the body. I can see why it sounded like that though

With this particular outfit my first impression was that it looks very good! It was not until I read sq4you's analysis that I too saw the problems and started questioning the success of the outfit. But this is like a kind of backwards analysis that's trying too hard to pick things apart and look for any possible fault. If you look at his outfit (without thinking too hard) the overall impression is great, despite the minor faults. GetSmart is doing enough things extremely well such that of any the minor faults are mostly canceled out. I like to think of it like a points system. An example (not an analysis of the above outfit).... Confidence & swagger? +2 Good Fit? +1 Quality pieces? +1 Mismatched shoes? -1 etc... If you have enough points in your outfit's overall score, you are afforded the luxury of having a few categories with negative points and nobody will hardily notice. GetSmart's outfit has so many positive points that a few negative points don't matter that much. Furthermore his positive point surplus likely allows him the ability to add some more unusual character to his outfits by breaking fashion rules. If I walked past him on the street I would likely not even notice the problem areas you pointed out. Basically GetSmart can get away with doing more supposed fashion "no no's" than most other posters here.

I just ordered these before going out to dinner tonight. Oddly while at the restaurant I noticed a guy wearing similar looking shorts during the middle of winter! (45 degF weather)

I just purchased one in steel grey in my usual size small. Is the sized down version too slim/uncomfortable or still manageable for you. Just curious since I stayed TTS.
post #13884 of 14525
^ it slim, but not at all uncomfortable. i expect it to stretch a bit in the arms and chest with wear. I tried on the xl aswell, but didnt like the longer length, and the bunching on the sides of the chest. I hope i dont regret it though...

Incredible to me how fast Zappos ships. I bought my new JPs there because I couldn't get them through my local independent shoe store. I ordered them Saturday afternoon and they were on my doorstep more than an hour ago.
