Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2065
Addressing my own concern, today is 47 degrees and pretty good rain. I think the Mackintosh over a light shirt would be perfect.
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.
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)..
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.
