    You're not serious, are you? I can't picture that looking good on anyone.

    Also to add, I think Barney's Seattle has sold one or two of those already. I mean, wtf?


    +1 ugly as sin.

    Ah good, at least I wasn't imagining it. It looked pretty damn good and I love the heavy cotton that was used. Too bad I'm short $1500 to drop on it though. [​IMG]

    I don't remember it being that much, I could be wrong though. It's just an unlined peacoat with no frills really.

    I noticed a lot of the unlined cotton jackets this season were very small.

    I hope they come out with the blue sheer...but, the white one could work.

    Speaking of sheer. I may pick this up tomorrow at Barneys.
    Orange sherbet Dries van Noten rain parka/annorak thing


    I'm all about anoraks though I'd have no use for something that serious. Lanvin windbreaker for me.

    You're not serious, are you? I can't picture that looking good on anyone.

    I don't think it's that bad, the magenta shirt makes is what's throwing it off.

    I agree the runway styling is atrocious...but, throw that over a grey or navy suit with a white shirt and it'll be "haute".

    I'm trying to replace that shirt under the anorak with a suit in my mind but it's impossible. That shirt is like the opposite of a green-screen, nothing in that image can be separated from it.

    ^I saw that thread, I have quite a fascination with those though for now I really just want a white charvet ruffled shirt and black bow tie which are on my list.

    I wasn't planning on spending the full 1k for the prorsum, probably when it's 75 off and with employee discount courtesy of my friend. It would be a fun attention whore piece, the brocade is beautiful as well.

    The combination of the brocade and the ruffle would be really luxe, I think. Maybe it would be a nice item to wear with an understated, dark jacket or suit.

    Speaking of which, I once saw a person wearing a ruffled shirt, and flip-flops. It was one of those moments were violence was needed.

    I was definitely thinking of a dark 2 button jacket to tone it down.

    That sounds like it required violent intervention, kind of like the time I saw a guy at the viceroy wearing a dress shirt, blazer, jeans and flip flops. We were about to throw him into the pool.

    Mrs. Featherbottom is all fluff. I guess you could say he is a Fluffer.

    After getting a carbon fiber strap for my PVD Marina Militare clone, I realized that the goddamn thing was sewn in. So, with the help of an array of craftmanship, here's my watch on its new strap. Thoughts?

    Crockett and Jones. That particular model is no longer made, but its close cousin is the Coniston model. You can occasionally find the Doughboys on ebay though. Also, I hope you like them Paul. [​IMG]
