    ^You buy for the names, I guess? How is anyone supposed to have a preference without at least seeing a picture of the things?

    How about some Lacoste? They're a good fitting, basic white canvas, nothing funky, sneaker. They have a little croc logo, but it's so little that you won't think twice about it.

    lacoste tennis sneakers won't last any longer than cheap plimsoles, not worth the extra cash.

    Poor student in need of first, decent winter jacket. How's this for $150? Open to other, cheaper suggestions. [​IMG] http://www.spiewak.com/fashion/product/SX932/
    Nice, I like the added practicality of a hood. I'm also always a fan of wrist-paulets and elastic openings.

    ^^Meh not a fan of toggle coats that end at the waist. I know Spiewak makes longer length versions of that if you want to stick with that brand.

    Raf T-neck isn't the TV static one from F/w 08 is it?

    Well, I had a good time.

    PattyC- that's a classic pattern, but please please don't try to dress like Noel/Liam Gallagher.


    Hah, that's actually Gem their guitarist. Does pairing with those kind of jackets not look good then? Any suggestions on how to properly wear it more fittingly?

    It's a good looking jacket, but I hope you don't live too far north. By looks alone, I would look for something warmer in a winter jacket.

    Who makes it?

    It's a Spiewak jacket, and I'm hoping it'd be enough for a midwest winter with some layers underneath.

    As someone who lives in the midwest... I'd suggest a longer (mid thigh-ish) length jacket for winter. That jacket looks fine for fall, but I don't think it'd cut it when you get those negative degree windchill days in February.

    It's an idea that could look bad, but is well executed. I say get it.

    I can't decide if I like it enough to buy it. It has an interesting design but something is holding me back...


    Great piece! If you can pull of the colour that's it.. not that hard actually. Just buy it.
    Something irrelevant.

    Ah, that too, I love cropped jackets/coats, elongates the legs and gives the piece more symmetry by being more squarish, also makes the lower layer form a nice upside down T shape when the jacket is open if your shirt is longer than your jacket. Also means it shows the lower layer underneath when closed, so you have an opportunity to play with shirts even when wearing a closed jacket.

    BB1 I think you find everything worth owning in Japan and post it in this thread.

    I need to P.M you and get a list.

    i can think of another reason for why you like cropped jackets...

    That could mean so many things, though I'm going to probably ignorantly assume you're just going for the obvious, so yes, it is easier for my short stature to wear cropped jackets, but really we all knew that already [​IMG].

    That collar is really nice, but the texture on the main part of the jumper is a bit messy. I'd give it a miss.
