Addressing my own concern, today is 47 degrees and pretty good rain. I think the Mackintosh over a light shirt would be perfect.

Cotton blazer, navy, red gingham under collar, stitching is cool maybe (?), I only have my reversible khaki/green junya hunting jacket/blazer and a navy cloak blazer, price is pretty nice, help

if it's xs buy it and sell it to me in a couple months when i have a job.

seriously tho, if that's the same one scott has (I think it is?) then it looks seriously awesome.

I think it's a go g, detailing on that is really cool IMO. Now I'll really have to buy your TOJ so you can fund that purchase nod[1].gif

Thanks for the feedback on the bombers, guys. Question - aren't TOJ and John Coppidge the exact same thing? I thought the latter was just the new name of the former.

Regardless, the design of the T1/T3 jackets, while somewhat similar, is too far removed from what I want. The other candidate I was seriously considering is Louis for APC- great jackets - but they don't have their main leather bomber in black this season, just other variants (like cream, which is not my thing).

The thing about the Todd Snyder bomber is that it looks great in the photo I posted, and not so great on another one. They do returns, so maybe I'll just buy it and see...

The BLK DNM one I wanted is this....but again, they don't make my size, so moot point.

@g-trans: i feel blazers with extraneous detailing like that, while interesting (and cool) at first sight, are much harder and more frustrating to match.  And once you get bored/accustomed to that detailing, you'll probably wear it even less.

 

The contrast patches around the shoulders and flap pockets are pretty neat, but the pick stitching around the whole jacket is unnecessary/distracting and tacky.  that and the whole button stance is all weird (or it may just be the low rise trousers)..

Gtrans, pretty sure I found where you're getting that blazer. And it is the one Scott has
There're some really good pics of it on third looks. I'd say do it. It's incredible. If I had the cheddar I would grab it.

Can anyone tell me if these soles are cemented or stitched? Ie, can I have them replaced once the soles wear thin? It says "textured welt" but I'm afraid that means nothing to me.

Co-op uses both methods so honestly there's no way to tell unless you've handled the boots IRL

Hmm, OK thanks.

I wish they did that cardigan in blue. Looks good though. I'm surprised more people haven't posted about that RC MA-1, but personally the velcro on the pockets would kill me a little inside every time I used them.

-wtf attack of the doubles again-
post #30974 of 38445

They do have it in blue.  Just that I have a triple blue stark--don't want to double up too much.

 

 

 

LOL, didn't realize velcro pockets.

I wouldn't get it but that's just me, it's just alright to me, nothing to spectacular for spring from sns
