    How come? In my hometown in Spain the average low in winter is below 0º degrees celsius, which is colder than London. Even the average low in winter in Madrid is no higher than in London.

    Maybe you haven't spent a winter in Spain or just in the south, but it's a common misconception. My colleagues in London won't believe me when I say winters are colder in my hometown, with frequent snowfalls. They go to Madrid or Barcelona or Majorca in summer when it's like 35ºC and they think it's the same all the year. But it's not like Spain is in the tropics. :)

    Tried on a IS coat today in like a textured ramie (iirc), wool lining was removable and could be worn separately, was really nice. Never paid attention to the brand before, guess I'll have to make a few new rakuten bookmarks.

    Harnden has really lost it with his pricing.. knit jerkin 2800aud, waxed jerkin 3400aud, insane. Totally not worth it.. The sad thing is it still sells at retail like hotcakes.

    New PR Patterson is quite nice as well, continuing with the thick black canvas, hand made brass buttons, mixture of raw/finished seams, feels very carpe diem overall. He seems to like slim arms and narrow shoulders with a roomy body, sounds odd but works in person. I'll take pics when I'm not lazy

    in other news picked up my first Taichi! Dark grey ramie "zipper trouser" fit like a slim-fit dream

    Thanks, they look incredible. I'm going to have to get one of his jackets. Gotta find a stockist who ships out, and I also need to start saving!

    Fuck it got the coat -- probably more of a size 4, but sounds interesting.

    Lots of PR Patterson pictures below. It's probably safe to say he's my favorite designer right now. I'm glad a store here carries his stuff, Its been hard to find in the past but I think DSM picked it up this year (might be womens only). I was wrong when saying brass buttons on my last post, he actually uses bronze.


    Unlined jacket from SS15. I'm still trying to figure out how he did the collar. The main body is made up of 2 fabric panels that cross at the top to form the collars. Hidden placket, horn buttons. Waxed heavy canvas. Chunks cut out to allow the fabric to move in places. He puts a little bronze bell in the pockets that jingle when you move, most people take them out (I reckon) but I like it

    Matching pants. Single inseam seam- not outseam. Patch pockets, same areas with chunks cut out. Super drop crotched and slightly cropped.

    Pants from SS14, heavy black canvas. This one is starting to fade really nicely. Again, only an inseam, no outseam. Crotch gussets added for movement. 3-D pockets, flare when worn a la CCP, looks really cool. He seems to change his tag every year.

    I havent seen his shoes in person yet but they look promising. He worked on m_moria for a bit so he at least knows what he's doing! He make a model with a bronze toe cap, iirc

    @MickeyPunch Perhaps, but here in Canada I don't tend to put on winter coats until it's at least -10 outside, so there's also that.

    Same as overseas, made in Italy so it's imported prices - no domestic discount
