Looks more like a shirt?

This is really becoming a matter of what the perfect fall jacket is. I think maybe in a general sense. we all have our wool coats for winter, parkas for the extreme weather.

Im in chicago now, but in NY where I'm from it rains a lot in the fall.

I'd say something that is water proof or resistant, but not a trench coat, and has some warmth and especially with a sweater. This is why i'd opt for wax cotton, but I can't find anything in my size since Barbour's 34 international is too big on me. If anybody has any ideas re where to get something that might fit me, please please please let me know.

Lel posted this recently in the WAYWT thread. It's a Uniqlo jacket that might still be for sale in stores (it's not on their web site, as far as I can tell). Probably fits a lot smaller than a Barbour, costs a fraction of a Barbour, and if it's not waxed, just wax it. teacha.gif

Proxies, take note: I will pay you to snag this!

I'd also pass on that J Crew thing, unless it has some type of hard to find slim cut or something. The web site even lists it as merely a 'layer'; I know you can find similarly dark, shapeless and naturally-fibered overshirts for much, much less. (Or something real sleek, like from Epaulet, for $70 more).

Haha, I know...nor do they list those T-1000 raw jeans that everyone seems to love.

There's a couple of people here advertising Uniqlo proxies in their sigs. Just can't remember who... confused.gif

uniqlo is the sort of thing where either im a medium or an XS, or a small too sometimes. I really need to try their stuff on before I get it. I wish they were more consistent.

Stretching the budget a little, but I did like this Tyrwhitt number:
