    RFX is that the beige ysl bomber from bergdorf goodman catalog or somewhere else?

    I like the jacket, but I already had the one I'm black.

    I believe it is the same one from the Bergdorf website, I think a beige bomber is a good change from black, I'm sure it'll fit well in your closet.

    How is the quality and fit of the black shearling bomber you have? Did you get the one from this season or from the past?

    I have 2 ysl bombers one is black with shearling collar, same with the beige one. it's not the very slim fitting. I suspect it's deerskin. I looked up current version of the black bomber on porter, it says deerskin and the leather texture is the same. The beige one is also deerskin on bergdorf goodman.

    Another one I have is a dark brown full shearling jacket, fits the same.

    Last year's http://www.mrporter.com/product/302336
    This year's http://www.mrporter.com/product/197819
    Bergdorf http://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/p/Yv...cat000000cat202802cat000023cat214200cat393006

    and full shearling bomber http://www.mrporter.com/product/303539

    and btw the price increased 400 bucks in 1 year for a jacket :satisfied:

    Damn, last years version lasted to 80%? Would have been insta-copped at that price.

    How well insulated is it? It looks pretty slim in those pics but it could just be the model sizing down?

    The price increase is probably to pay for Slimanes return. :lol:
    This will probably be the last season we see of that bomber.

    Here's the thing of porter's discount, once it has been added to sales category, it will drop 30% off, to 50, 70 and 80 at the end. However the truth is, maybe something at 50% off is sold out, but the system just mark the item down anyway.

    Like this year's black bomber, you already couldn't see it on porter, but if you click the link, it will tell you all sizes sold out at 50% off. I figured out their business is doing so well, I try to look up what bottega veneta stuff left but all the clothing and shoes all sold out wow.

    As for the bomber itself, It's not fashionable. It's very well made and used good material. i believe it designed to let you wear it for several years. think about the idea of italian brands like cucinelli.

    The rick is amazing.

    For girl's trench, prorsum still make the best fashion trench coats if price is not a factor. Retail runs from 2k up to 4k winter or runway pieces .
