Does Aaron have a "Styleforum" eye? Just curious.

Hey all, interested in your thoughts on this jacket. Houston and Barcelona are both on the agenda this month and I'm interested in a jacket that will look somewhat put together but will wear light 'n breezy.

I work in a creative/casual industry and it is typical better to be under dressed rather than over dressed and out of place.

I know this is pretty short by CBD standards but how does it look from a cusual, worn unbuttoned with jeans and chinos kind of perspective? More like a blazer shaped jacket than classic tailoring.

Hoping for a @Cotton Dockers kind of thing

Any and all input is welcome

This is a bit short on you, but I certainly don't think it is a dealbreaker (note that I tend towards shorter jackets by SF standards). I like the patch pockets and the fit through the shoulders seems very clean.  I think overall it looks pretty good.

Dear Noodlers,

 

Someone called "Kylie Jenner" apparently makes a "lip kit".  I don't really know who she is, but she appears to have hypnotised my eldest daughter.

 

I've checked the website, and in a stroke of marketing cynicism that is right up there with Krispy Kreme in the evil genius stakes, they have choked supply with periodic "re-stocking" to create a teenaged girl frenzy of kop-lust.  It's worked.  The site is so busy I can't even register to have them sell my email address and spam me for the rest of my life.

 

Can anyone hook a stylebrother up with some of this crap?  Major dad points seem possible.

Now change the selection to an actual item, and not just a picture ;)

 Ho ho! :eek:

 

Have you tried Amazon?  Sellers there often have stuff that's listed as out-of-stock on manufacturers' websites.

 

Out of curiosity, what is this stuff?  Isn't it just lipstick?

 

Cheers,

I have a bit of a different request: My wife is heading to New Zealand today on business, and she relayed to me that New Zealand is known for their merino wool. Does anybody know any stores or brands that offer good value for the money? Is there a specific type of clothing that they're well known for?

 

I know she'll be in Auckland, but I don't know the full itinerary.

New Zealand is a beautiful place. I can't think of any stores that were particularly interesting, but I think the most attractive part about it is the scenery anyway. They are certainly known for having a lot of sheep but if anything I would take that as a hint on what to get for dinner.

Apparently it's "amazing".  But as I said, they've played this very slick marketing game of whipping Instagram and whatnot into a frenzy, promoting and packaging the shit out of it, and then selling it solely from their own site in tiny little spurts to enhance the feeling of rarity.  My eldest child has now dedicated her life to merely having the chance to drink the Kool-Aid.  Hideous.  But, well...dads and their daughters...I had to ask just in case someone on here had some unlikely connection.

I guess she heard from a friend that their wool is very highly regarded, so I thought I'd ask her to pick me up a sweater, or if their bedding is popular, a wool blanket, or something like that. I thought maybe there was something that's known to be a good product that she could look for during her time there.

 

I am definitely bummed about not being able to join her to view the scenery and eat some of their livestock. Maybe one day!
