Tim Coppens Brigade Bomber



materials don't seem to be up to standard as previous seasons? has anyone gotten to handle jackets from this season?

are you saying quality is less good this season?

Puckering on bottom hem looks terrible.

not sure if I need a M or a L with a 40" chest (ervell)

I kind of feel like those boots belong in the shame thread. I struggle to think of a context in which they wouldn't look terrible, but I kind of like them.

i just got the bordeaux geller lounge pants from the sample sale too. i guess i'm just a sucker for the color.

Post a bordeaux fitpic then. I don't think I've seen any substantial reds in fitpics since I've been on here.

past seasons have at least had some cotton, this one is all synthetics. plus i PM'd a user here and he said that the quality's different but wanted to get other opinions.

why do you assume synthetics are inferior to cotton? sort of a blanket statement, the polyester kolor makes is much nicer than the cotton that many brands use.

in this case it would also explain why the MSRP on the jackets are down by like 1/2 compared to last F/W

examples? i really haven't paid attention to that sort of thing in a while.

a lot of info online is long-gone but managed to find some from SS13:


100% lamb leather detail, 60% cotton 40% nylon body, lining 100% rayon. retail almost $3k.


63% cotton 37% polyurethane body, lining 100% rayon. retail 1800 GBP.


70% cotton 30% nylon body, lining 100% rayon. retail about $1.8k.


&& anecdotally i remember c4est mentioning offhand that the rug jacket (when he saw it at Barney's) was somewhere between $2-3k?

i'm only taking a guess at any quality changes but it doesn't make much sense to me why a label would cut their prices in half while maintaining similar overall quality.
post #35504 of 38490
yeah i can see your point. maybe it just wasn't financially viable? the pieces would cost nowhere near that to produce, so maybe its just a cut it in the markup? either way, i'm 100% happy with my jacket, and for the record its got some cotton in it =]
post #35505 of 38490
yeah those past prices were the main reason I never copped a jacket by them - total rip. hopefully quality doesn't suffer, but I still can't imagine a 1.2k jacket put out by a relatively new designer to be of shittier quality yet
