looks perfect on my original toj dr and would look off without them I think
I think anyone getting so worked up over such a minor detail and completely ignoring the context of that detail is probably intent on being upset about it despite anything.
i tried overlooking the ones on mine
You're right, passant. My comment has nothing to do with SF or H&M, I just don't like them. They just don't feel integrated to me, flimsy and not grounded.
leather fringe epaulets
I see this little tidbit of knowledge thrown around here a lot. That certainly isn't the common definition. Here's Merriam Webster's, for instance:
"Epaulet: something that ornaments or protects the shoulder: as a : an ornamental fringed shoulder pad formerly worn as part of a military uniform b : an ornamental strip or loop sewn across the shoulder of a dress or coat"
Here's another from Free Dictionary:
"epaulette US, epaulet [ˈɛpəˌlɛt -lɪt]
(Clothing & Fashion) a piece of ornamental material on the shoulder of a garment, esp a military uniform"
I imagine epaulets only become passants when attachable shoulder fringe/ornamentation is involved, to distinguish the two
Since shoulder straps are now used as sort of less a fussy allusion to the whole military shebang, the word epaulet probably just took over
Can we please not do this.
Not my thing exactly, but for anyone looking for brown leather...Costume National, size 36
yo man. Your shirts have a collar because they're meant to be worn with a tie.
I like them on that philip lim. Agree that it doesn't quite work for me on the stooges, not sure why.
Can anyone point me in the direction towards a brown leather jacket like this?
I'm not sure what to expect in terms of price, but anything less than $800?
Not a lot of people posting pics of their own jackets on here anymore, so here's one of mine. I doubt there are many leather blazer fans out there (most of them are guido territory in my experience), but this is one I enjoyed wearing when I was living in NYC. Doesn't work so well now that I'm in LA.. everything is so casual out here if you wear anything more than jeans and a t-shirt it feels like you're in a suit.
Made by Valentino, from pretty thick lambskin. There's a heavy duty zipper (riri) on the inside of the buttons which makes it pretty quick to do up and avoids the stress on the buttons.
That's pretty nice - the leather looks terrific. It's not really a "blazer" though. It's a true M65 cut (most of what people call M65 are actually M66 inspired, it seems). So, more like a leather military jacket. Works for me.
bumping this in case others don't see it.
ideas on where I can get a jacket like this? or, this jacket, specifically?
