Wild right? They're trying to get in on the made in America bandwagon but for a lack of manufacturing presence just carry other brands. They carry a lot of Barbour too, and their footwear selection is good for Wolverines or Eastland Made in Maine. I'm hoping to come across one of these at discount some day: http://www.orvis.com/store/product.aspx?pf_id=6H1P&dir_id=885&group_id=22497&cat_id=22498&subcat_id=22499

Stronghold shirts have always fit strangely to me: big and blousy in the chest, short in the arms. I think they're going for an "authentic" fit, but it's incongruous with their skinny venice hipster population. I have a medium build and still find their gear to fit super awkwardly.

Also, I pass on Lucky nearly every time I'm out. Thoughts?

Burberry black label is diffusion label in Japan made on license. It's very mid-range. That jacket is legit BBL, though - must've been donated by either a Japanese guy or a world-hopping men's fashunz type.

A fieldjacket I picked up not too long ago. I've waxed it with a bit of fjall raven greenland wax.

I don't really get the crazy shirt thing myself, so I've never really looked into it. Anyway, I recognized TM Lewin - is this anything any of you would want? I can go back for it if so.

Others may disagree, but I doubt it. Lewin is the bottom rung on Jermyn Street -- fine for personal use if you like it and it fits well, but not earthshatteringly rare or valuable. I would imagine any "designer" line they paired with would be about the same.

I don't know, maybe he wants not to get wet when it rains? What's the point of a tough-looking field jacket if you can only wear it when the sun is out...?
