I wish it got cold enough here for outerwear. I loves it too.
I love it 3 (and it does get cold enuf in Btown). @in stitches what size did you get in esemplare parka, 42? It's very cool looking (no pun). Warm? You're a 42 jacket, rt?
What about pedAL ED winter adventure jacket; anyone roqqing this?
That could be it, except that they show at least one "coat" (the Camel one) being worn over what appears to be a suit, and the (light) brown (almost off-white) coat is clearly worn over at least two parts of a three-piece suit (you can see the waistcoat but not the jacket, but it could still be there under the coat).
Not that the styling of SuitSupply's catalogue is much to go by. I just expect them to have some notion of why they call a garment one thing and not another.
I like all of them, sort of. I'm not entirely convinced that I appreciate the Casentino as much I probably should, but I like a bit more obvious texture and pattern than the blue or camel coats, which both look too "slick" to me. The above-mentioned very light (nearly off-white) brown coat is also nice, but it will only take one nearby pass of a bus through a puddle of water or dirty slush to make it look far less nice.
In either case, I only think SuitSupply have released a part of their autumn/winter collection. A lot of similar looking things: all coats are DB while nearly no suits or jackets are.
99% sure I ended up with the XXL. Its stupid how warm that coat is. And its freaking awesome.
Speaking of outerwear, I like the dramatic look and the (presumably warm) fur collar of the Portuguese Capote:
Only thing is that, when buttoned as below, it won't give as much warmth to one's mid-section as to the upper back and shoulders. Would it be considered inappropriate to wear it with the bottom button closed? I guess it evolved in a climate with occasional chilly ocean winds and rain but no really biting winter cold. (I've never been to Portugal, just making assumptions.)
Yeah I'm blind or something...
Hey, you read it here first: it's cool to be visually othered.
Oh. No you didn't.
This is my grail coat:
I'm assuming that flaring is "wind"
@in stitchesI thought a genuine Bane/TDKR coat was your grail...
I'll take the coat of this detective.
That navy coat is bad ass, but perhaps a bit too big for him in the rear. The grey one has way too skinny lapels.
Overcoats are the only item where you don't have to exercise as much restraint as other items, so it would be a shame to get a boring one.
Awesome coat, but get rid of the stupid contrasting buttonhole.
I have a Burberry coat but it is BLACK. I cannot wear my suit jackets underneath because it is a slim coat.
Do I blow a $1,000 on a navy blue/camel coat that allows me to wear it over my suit jackets?
I realize it's worn by a little girl, but I like this overcoat from the movie Hugo:
