Krane Outerwear - Page 8

post #106 of 213
Good point. The Cyril is a close second, but again, not my size/desired color. I'm good on the peacoat front.

I'm disappointed he couldn't snag one of the duffel bags. There'd be an italicized "sold" next to it by now.

Opinions?

Honestly, it'll probably be too hot to wear. I live in Cali and I'm seriously considering keeping the Navy 40 even though I'd only get to wear it when I travel.

Haha, if I had that Officer's coat in 40, I would keep it. Same story with the Navy Ayling haha.

Cyril is a very cool jacket but my personal favorite is actually the one Mathais fishtail I recieved. It's so insanely legit and well thought out... all I can really say is that Ken Chow is a genius. Also, the waxed cotton he uses doesn't really look douchey IMO, it's got so many little variations and ages well (I've got a spring Elliot anorak that's got a 4-5 solid months of wear) that it doesn't really get that "leathery" look a lot of other waxed cotton does.


Also - here are a couple teaser pics for the bags I do have left:
Mirka (comes with a detachable shoulder strap)


Harland


Ander (in Olive)

I really like Ken's stuff, and I consider him a friend besides (if anyone has good ideas for Krane stockists - i.e. would fit into the store, please tell me, and then email the store to support him.) He is a really standup guy. My only point is that short jackets have more universal appeal than long coats, in general, unless we are talking about formal overcoats. It's much easier to style a waist or hip length jacket, for most people, myself included. Also, if you are engaged in any sort of athletic activity in the winter (snowball fights, skiing, etc...) a short jacket is really advantageous. A long jacket is more useful if you are homeless.

Yea that's true. At least with short coats, though, you don't have to immediately take them off when you come back indoors. Anyway, South Willard comes to mind as potential stockist, if you consider the homage to and twists of classic, vintage designs. Maybe Odin, too, as it always stocks NiCo and has a military-ish vibe, but it's vision doesn't seem as clear imo, especially if you see the amalgamation of their clothes.

Oh yea, and I think the '10 Jonas has been lengthened by 4 inches or so, my 38 is 34.5 inches from HPS to hem.

Was just saying my personal preference was the Mathais M-51 inspired coat... I agree with your point, but that's the inherent problem with winter coats - short ones don't keep your legs warm, long ones restrict your movement.

My solution is living in California

I grew up in Canada, and have spent winters in some of the coldest places on earth. My experience is that jeans are fine for pretty much anything above -20C, and below that, you might want to break out the thermal underwear. But really, as long as you keep your extremities and core warm, you are pretty much fine. Also, the problem with stylish long coats that don't cinch tightly at the waist is that wind coming up under your long coat is infinitely worse than wind on your legs.

That's what I was afraid of. Still need to find a nice peacoat/coat for this winter.
