Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2557
Fashion would be way more exciting if seasonal collections actually evaporated
looking for an affordable black/ dark grey button jacket. how about between these two?
the top is significantly cheaper. its actually a parka (hood in the back). dark grey sleeves, black body
the bottom is more expensive (but not too much), textured body, faux leather sleeves
Both are very nice, if I had to make a decision between the two I'd go with the second one.
Second is better, but you might want to hold off for a leather-sleeved version, of which there are many, floating, numerous. Google should still bring up a good cross-section. (Now is unfortunately not the right time to grab one on sale -- that would be January, I'd think).
thanks for the feedback everyone.
the first/top one is from a Japanese company called GU which is Uniqlo's sister brand, as I live in Japan
the second is Zara. I went back to Zara today to re-try it and have been having second thoughts (I like the textured body, it sets it apart from other similar jackets.. but re-considering faux leather/leather sleeves)
