    That 5zip the cotton one someone posted before? I wouldn't get it. Don't like the color and it's cotton. If you get a 5zip get it in leather.

    questions for anyone, would you wear something this oversized?

    I am looking at a drop shoulder long coat (not this one, no decent pics of it available)

    Margiela.. Love the full black look of #1, but rubber sole of #2 might be more durable. Given that here it rains and snows

    #1 and then have it vibrammed/topied?

    Second one has a clear rubber sole, just making sure you know because it isn't for everyone.

    I like the contrast of #2 but I already have the all black sidezips. I'd say if you don't have #1 already then get them and get them topyed/vibrammed.

    I have the second rubber sole pair. They're very nice, the leather is great and the rubber sole makes them noticeably more comfortable to walk around in than the normal hard bottom ones. the only potential issue is that the silhouette isn't as sleek as a normal pair because the rubber sole sticks out further from the actual boot than the regular sole.

    A coat like that needs a greater length to look right. When Raf Simons did some interesting short coats they were much simpler and basically rounded wool single-breasted overcoats with hidden plackets.

    I really like that Acne, tried it on too. However, I may be alone with that opinion here.

    Hah yep, same pattern on "both sides" but on the right the shoulder-part is suede. Passed on it though, got the COS coat instead
