They're pretty much the same jacket, only one has a hood and is a bit more expensive. Which would you recommend (I wear beanies so not sure if the hood would be useful much, but I still like the design).

Do you think these are good choices, or do they seem too lightweight for fall/ winter? As an alternative, do you have any suggestions for jackets of this style (minimal, bomber/blouson type)?

The first one seems more sweats and casual friendly while the latter is more dress up-able. What were you going to wear with it?

fycus, i don't really like eg anything for their shapes ie the excessively soft rounded edges of the shawls, skirting at the bottom, short boxy fit etc it's all intentional so as to easily be recognizable as eg and that's precisely what I don't like about it

synth i have no idea outside the obvious I'd suggest going through the epicurean knit thread to get some ideas, there is a pretty cool dolce knit on porter and you might want to look at ($$$ but likely to get marked down), kanata which is what I believe horseman use to make their cowichans in canada...i saw one on rakuten with fucking reindeer or some mammal with antlers on it that was pretty awesome but the collars are a bit strange (for this purpose I have a corvette blue inverallan cardi I copped last year)

I also like jamiesons shetland for their fair isle but it's scratchy as fuck (which I don't mind but most do), still need to get me one of those but as far as max swagger oversize cardigan/robe steez there really isn't much...i remember the very first time I went to sw in june of 06 ryan had this incredible willhelm robe that was black, emerald green with some gold zigzag or some shit separating the color blocking and i though who in the fuck would wear this shit. Of course it was outside my realm of understanding at the time, got severely marked down and finally sold...about a year or so later after that I finally "got it" and I kicked myself for not copping it (still makes me mad to this day). I've tried to find pics of it several times but have been unsuccessful thus far.

No idea on stockists.

There is so much awesome cotton and wool stuff out there, it seems absurd to spend that kind of money on something that is terrible and you don't really want. Forget the leather until you stop growing. Fuck.

Haha, thanks for the help, unfortunately I don't like marzipan...or rum either laugh.gif
but I do have to ask, how have you had the chance to experience dammsugare, you've ever been in sweden?
actually I am looking for knitwear aswell, and it is right now a higher priority, but haven't really found anything that nice for around 100 $ on B&S in my size yet.
going to have some more money rather soon though, and will probably be paying a visit to Barkarby (awesome outlet located close to stockholm) so hopefully I'll find something nice there fing02[1].gif

If only current (or even future me) could go back in time to tell younger me that....

Yeah, I'm thinking like this about most my purchases  right now, most of my recent 5-10 purchases have all been reputable brands like filippa k, soulland, dockers, and all of them are "staple" items that will work for a long time no matter how current trends change
highest priority right now is to get 2-3 nice knits(litteraly have none), preferrably thick and nice pull-overs schneider style, but hopefully a bit cheaper laugh.gif(hope to find atleast 2 knits for a total of around 200 $)
would be awesome winning the 300 £ asos competition icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'd say I would be going for an overall minimal aesthetic I guess. OCBD's, tees, APC PS, slim chinos, MMM GAT/ CP's.

post #27295 of 38007
the second one definately. I see the first one being more incorporated into that "loungewear for models" aesthetic

for all the talk about knitwear i am surprised you hype it up so much being from so cal.
was there the past 4 nights and aside from being 7 PM and onward, it is pretty damn humid in LA and depending on what you were doing earlier in the day, the last thing you want is slipping into a knit piece.

seriously?

I'm sure all your knits are just sitting in your closet. for reals. that's cool too. i like talking about the clothes i don't actually wear and just stare at when looking at my wardrobe. gives me a good feeling like 'fuck yeah' i own that.

also jeans? sure i'll give you the benefit of the doubt. i did the whole raw denim when i was in so cal for 5+ years and found it bearable. well ooking back on it F/W did not cool down as much. cooler but not by much, and the actual cooler days were far and few in between.

nor cal still the best.
weather wise for wearing seasonal jawnz, in keeping on topic.

FWIW the missoni you posted is nice. Missoni looks legit in wearing with my NSW gear.

length is important too, that one is awkward it needs to hit top of the thigh or above the knee, mid thigh looks odd imho (eg my margiela robe hits above knee)

i saw a schneider one just earlier today, i'll try and find it for you

edit: here

Thanks for the tips and suggestion. I actually like the collar on the JV were it like a lapel, makes it like a knitted coat instead of just a long knit or knitted robe.

You are right about the length though, got to be just right.

I want to check out that Schneider though, is a size 4 equivalent to a small or extra small?

I feel that there are long periods of months where it is pretty cold in SoCal, keep in mind that some who are exposed to warm sun most of the year, 50-60 degrees is pretty cold. I could layer a thin knit with a leather jacket and be pretty comfortable. Those temperature could last for 2-3 months but mornings and night times could still reach those temperature for about 6 months? Really depends what you are used to.

only time i like it is on my jil pj cardigan and a lanvin I saw otherwise i don't like that collar on knits really, maybe it's not a cardi you're looking for? I think you'd be a 3 or 4, some of the stuff fits a little oversize and I don't know about that one.

Gettoasty, I think you need a break from SF or something. This been going on for a while, but you're acting a bit strange to say the least.

I remember you being much cooler when I joined last winter.
