people probably realize it's not that special once they receive it. don't get me wrong, i like it. i just think it's been hyped up a lot without justification. there's just not that much that distinguishes it.

Yes. Starts to flatten with the first wear.

I think it's more of a sizing thing really. Slim shoulders and chest, blousy body and a weird unisex scheme makes it hard to nail it. Also it's long as fuck so if you're under 5'9" you might feel a little self conscious. And it's like 5+ pounds, pretty heavy for anywhere that's usually warmer

Wasn't underwhelmed with mine at all

OR it could be the fact that he had 2?

What exactly are you comparing it to?

I think it's pretty tacky but still... a cool piece I guess. I admire it in the same way that I admire some goth ninja stuff; a lot of it is dumb looking and lame BUT I won't argue that it doesn't look cool

I wasn't underwhelmed with the one I sold to chaos either, just needed a bigger size for my shoulders. I kept my canvas one since it fits perfectly, and it's amazing.

wasn't talking about this specific case really, just about the coat in general. i know people have had sizing issues and that he had two (...but if it's so nice, why not keep both (7)). i still don't see why people lust so hardcore over it, though. i feel like it all stems from that one fit pic that circles around. again, i like it, but i think its degree of hype is a bit undeserved.

I haven't found a hooded coat I like nearly as much as the Bless ones I've owned. It was a grail of mine for a very long time and when I got the white one I was pretty blown away by how nice the fit was and the details. It's the best minimal long, hooded coat while still being interesting. Still my favorite coat that I own, even more than the Schneider coats I've owned, and the only thing that comes close that I have liked is tog's balenciaga.

It's also a function of how difficult they are to get, so usually the only ones you see are ones that are being resold. Some of these coats are really damn old too

I think it's easy to dismiss hype when you haven't handled or worn the piece yourself. I pretty much felt the same way and said the same things about SNS starks until I finally got one and now I wear that thing a bunch

The HL Cutout trench snake had was far cooler and less over the top while maintaining the same vibe. Wicked mad I slept on the 44 that popped up on sufu ~ a year ago.

as of a few weeks ago, i have this smile.gif

anyway, i know what you're saying. everyone likes different things, and pics don't do it complete justice (true of most great clothes). i like minimal, too, and i like this coat - in fact, i think it's quite nice. i just think it's been overhyped and for many people who buy based on that, they'll be disappointed. i've seen so many of these coats pop up recently, and it's hard for me to believe that a good portion of those aren't people who simply didn't like it as much as they anticipated. if you know what you're getting yourself into, it will probably be different. but it can also be hard to tell when you truly like a piece and when you simply want to be a part of the hype. i've been in the latter group myself plenty of times
