That green HBT jacket? It's actually looks like it's inspired by a WWII Herringbone Twill utility jacket. Fabric, donut buttons, the single chest pocket, etc.

That's definitely it. I was leaning more military when I saw the green herringbone. Thanks Nat!

I would like to know what other grails Spoo lusts after. I mean about 1/4 of the stuff posted every week by everyone would be grail for me. What else can considered Grail for someone like Spoo?

I've never found Chanel, or Tom Ford, or a LV Trunk, . . .

I think it's awesome that having had so much success in this business that there are still somethings that can get him so excited. For me, I think the ultimate Grail would be thrifting a Rolex. I don't mean buying one at an estate for $500 and selling it for $5000 (although that would be incredible). I mean actually thrifting a Rolex. Probably never happen since they Rolex is so recognizable. But, I can hope!
