PLEASE USE IMAGESHACK OR A SIMILAR SERVICE TO HOST PICTURES. DON'T LINK TO OTHER SITES! Use this thread to post your favorite coat/jacket - specific to brand and style, and include pictures please - if you don't own it or have a camera, find some pictures online. http://men.style.com/ has most relevant runway shows from NY, Milan and Paris, so if it's a well-known designer you can probably find a picture there. I am not sure about the rest of you but I feel like my wardrobe is becoming stagnant with the same "classic" styles. There's gotta be something to spice things up a bit. I'll start it off. My current pick is this leather jacket by Lithium Homme (Japan). The fur (or faux-fur) collar trend is getting to be excessive no doubt, but the shape of the collar on this one is unique, and it's not done very frequently in this vein. The jacket has a lot of gestalt to my eyes, between the architectural, slim cut and the semi-androgony between the moto-style leather jacket (masculine) and the fur lining (feminine). The contrast created between the light color of the leather and the chunky black zippers is what wins me over in the end.It would look great with some low-profile slim, sleek dress shoes or boots. To match the black details of the zippers, a watch with a black leather strap would be cool. However I think this jacket lends itself more to other colors and would look too costume with black pants. You'd want to either match the belt with the jacket, or the shoes. If you had a belt, the jacket and shoes all in a different color of leather, it would probably look too chaotic.
