    There is nothing wrong with heavy leather duffels are you walking around ny with it in your hand?

    Poncho is kinda cool, not sure how I feel about the button front though.

    Is a zipper any better? I would like a poncho type scarf that will stay in place. I guess I can just toss the bad boy over my shoulder and let it drape, dgaf -- flailing in the wind like I just don't care.

    Parker needs to post his SS buy so I can get an idea of it. So jelly

    Sorry, this is all dick shit.

    The price is insane, but for some reason it's the only bomber I like. Should I get the first one or put down an extra 500 for the leather one or don't get either?

    Also, I'm desperately looking for nice combat boots. I like these, but they're from a couple years back.. Any suggestions for similar ones which I can buy now?:

    Swiss, the leather one doesn't seem as nice to me. As for the boots, how keen are you on having them super-destroyed? Or is it mostly the shape you like?

    Swiss, check Sufu market, there was someone selling that pair in a 43 or 44 IIRC. The nylon bomber is much nicer than the leather

    Nylon catches lint a lot just a warning, or so I was told.

    It's more the shape, but I do like the destroyed leather.

    Thanks, 44 would be great. Leaning towards the nylon as well.

    thanks brand and reedo's opinion of sweater.

    Swiss i like the 1st bomber over the leather one. I don't like the how the leather bomber fit. However $2460 for a nylon/cotton bomber is expensive.
    Yeah it's more of the cut. A bomber are support to be shorter than normal jacket. The leather one seems long.

    The boots looks too heavily destroyed. i'm not a fan.

    $1910 actually. But yeah, that's still insane. Thanks for the advice.

    I'd get the Missoni sweater andrewgreg. cartoonwhale is definitely tempting though.

    Down filled, lots more substantial than a reg Rick bomber. Pricing is in line with production costs and RO in general. Now maybe RO prices are too high but this is another discussion entirely.

    You're right. I wish I could buy it used somewhere.

    Any combat boot suggestions?

    I'm sure you could find something similar by Carpe Diem, Augusta, CCP, or something else similarly cool/beat-up on SZ—unless you've already snooped around there of course.
