Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2045
You're a 41.
The quality is excellent for what they are but the soles are glued on. The leather is super supple and they feel like wearing slippers. I'm not sure I would pay the yoox price for them, but under $500 I think they're worth it. I have the gold version (the gold has pretty much come off by now).
I found something called a mariner jacket in Brooks Brothers' winter clearance.
Water repellent mariner jacket made with cotton. Detachable snap-off hood. Contrasting orange piping. Lined at top half with blue and white striped linen and with cotton on bottom half. Self elbow patches for durability. Side entry pockets. Dry clean. Imported.
That's all I have to go on. No clue what a 'mariner' jacket is and google isn't helping much.
I think this looks pretty versatile, but I'm not sure. I want a general purpose light jacket that will work against rain year-round but won't look odd when the skies are clear. Does this fit the bill, or is it too much of a rain jacket?
