I was going through my closet and happened to pull out my BBS J2. I really appreciate its design especially with the previous version with the removable hood attachment and different leather treatment.

So far so good. I have to admit that I am fascinated by the costume design and attention to detail that you usually get from HBO (Starbucks Gate excluded). I liked him in the Americans and he is good in this too as well as some Boardwalk cast and other great acting. Only five episodes have been released and in this day of Netflix / Amazon dumping their entire seasons at once, it can be frustrating to wait but so far so good. I have been watching it with the wife.
Nice I'll check it out. IDK anything about it other than it seems like a remake of the old show Perry Mason, hopefully its darker.

Yes, it is a remake but I never saw the original. Being HBO, you will get dome gratuitous nudity and violence. Add in plenty of dead corpse including a dead baby and a crazy cult and you have the formula.

Nice to have a single jacket with those pants options.
Seems your pants are DNA....
Thank you for your unwavering commitment to one of our best selling pants weve made

So @Patek, what happened to your FCL? Did you keep it or what?
No one offered to buy it. There was some interest and PMs and then nothing so it hangs in my closet. It is currently 97 degrees so I'm not wearing it but I do put in on on occasion to see how it works with various jeans etc.

Unless someone wants it, I will hang on to it. I do think it will break in to me with wear, especially if I zip it up. If someone wants it, its theirs for what I paid for it. If not, it hangs in my closet.

Isn't it supposed to be single pants with those jacket options since I have more jackets that I pair with the pants? I don't know, I may be wrong.

Anyway, yeah. Pants and tee by ZB.

From UNDERCOVER's FW20-21 collection

When I saw it earlier this year, I thought the collection was really captivating especially with how they did the runway presentation. The collection is inspired by Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood.

That's a scam site. You can usually tell these things from a few factors:

...

2. Sizing makes no sense (Sandro doesn't make jackets in a size XXXL)
You're correct, of course, but it's not exactly far-fetched (I don't know if I would say "makes no sense" ...).




Is this goat?
It's not bad but definitely not G.O.A.T.

Sorry, I just couldn't help myself.

Thanks for posting! The jackets are interesting and remind me faintly of their classic fw09? embellished perfecto.

More importantly, I know what my next movie is going to be. Kurosawa and Mifune take on MacBeth, damn!

Interesting for sure but a bit too much of a costume. I do like that designers are thinking outside the box and being creative but I can't imagine wearing this anywhere other than Comic-Con.

Yup, they're somewhat similar to it.

Not really. I can see the black working with everyday streetwear. The more colorful ones can work if one knows how to style and pair it.

I think I'd like those Undercover jackets better if they didn't have video game logos on the back. Those logos look like the icons you click when you're choosing between shooting the enemy or casting a spell.
