Re: CPs. There really isn't a great alternative, although this year, I've fallen in love with Lanvin sneakers as well. The wider last looks better with some jeans/pants.
My biggest issue with ssense is the models. They are all 6'3", yet they always seems to wear size smalls. Always freaks me out about how the piece will fit me at 5'8".
Bout to check out THECORNER, wish me luck.
I really like it. What do want to know? imo, it's like a lot of designer militaria and performance gear though, in that a little more care could be taken with durability - as much as is taken with the design. There is an old joke that the Italian Army is the best dressed army whose clothes fall apart, and while no one is going to wear Raeburn into the field (well, I might, if it was more up to heavy perfomance standards), it would be nice to see construction like heavy stitching at high stress areas. When you use heavy canvas or nylon ribbing, it's unlike the material is going to give, but even heavyweight thread will. You see this clunky but effective technique used by a lot of outdoor brands, but not by fashion brands like White Mountaineering, nor even brands like Master-Piece.
General impressions I guess. This is good to know. There's always a few pieces floating around various stores, but I'm never sure if they're any good. Durability is a bit of a concern though when considering outerwear type items.
The quality and durability are generally fine. I just like my stuff to be fighting rugged, like early Engineered Garments and SNS Herning. Put it this way, my Aero leather is pretty close to 5 lbs, and the lightest leather jacket that I own is probably my calf Margiela 5-zip. For real durabililty, you go to brands like Barbour, Aero, Woolrich, etc... However, as fashion outerwear goes. it's probably above average.
I have a thing for reconstructed garments, militaria, and UK casuals, so I am naturally predispositioned to Raeburn's stuff. The pieces are cool and and of themselves, and they can be worn in different ways. So... I'm a fan.
Kopped the black one, finally a purchase off my kop list of stuff I thought I wouldn't get due to pricing
Now kinda want the navy with pricing like this
