Anyone have any recs for cotton ventile coats, though? Anatomica has a couple nice ones:

Is Craig Green offering ventile stuff, I'd see it on you with a cap and it would be fine.


Talking about women and caps: it is apparently cute that I buy them but I am not authorized to actually wear them. Same with streetwear sweats or whatever, Margiela sweats only and with a collared shirts. No skinny jeans etc etc. and I apparently am used as an example to other "fashion dudes" so imagine what they think of their styles. Biggest turnoff seems to be a dude in full time-traveling fister rick or stuff like that, then streetwear.

It is mostly said in jest but you can sometimes see their disgusted faces when they see some sad cases.

Having met 2/3 of them I would say that you are at least 2/3 right.  Not sure if the last girl is 12, but then again, white French people like youi are all jealous of our ageless (Asian) beauty.  As for women in fashion hating on guys in fashion tribes, yes, that's also common.  I mean, the most popular social pasttime of fashion people is to hate on fashion and on other fashion people, who are probably hating your dumb, pretentious ass right back.  I mean, what is the use of being cool if you can't sit and silently judge those you deem less cool than yourself?

I have tried that, and it totally works. That said, wearing a paper sack is a better cop magnet than being black in San Marino.

I love this moto-style trench too, but the chest pocket is too much

Not Ventile, but I was recently looking at SEH Kelly's trench coat.

http://www.sehkelly.com/shop/jackets/navy-blue-cotton-twill-trench-coat/

Kind of interesting how they made the belt go under the hip pockets, although I can't decide if I think that just makes the hip pockets look too high.

Personally like bonded cotton more than Ventile for mac-style coats, but it doesn't breathe as well.

Yeah, those Macintosh coats turn into a sweat lodge on the subways. SEH Kelly is real nice, just a bit too traditionally-styled for me. Want something a bit wrinkled and casual. love PH because I can wear it to the office or with a ball cap and jeans

The bonded cotton will keep people dry from your perspiration though.

Dude, sandwich. Truth.

 

And what's the female response to this:

Who cares it's dope as fuck
post #9313 of 13920
The response to anyone hating on that coat is, "Bitch, don't kill my vibe."

I've been wanting a ventile jacket for awhile now, I just cant seem to find the right one.  They seem to be pretty rare.

 

Whats that fabric that is the same as ventile but under another brand name?
