I'm proud of the restraint that I managed to exhibit.

    Norcal, I like that overcoat. I'm looking for something similar. If I may ask, how much was the jacket? BTW, excellent restraint, I would've buckled under the pressure.

    What, do you not envision me as a SEXY, militant goth?

    The jacket was $500.  I probably would have given the poor student story and knocked down the price another $25... Too bad I just donated my left kidney to finance my first watch purchase.  Oh well, back to work.

    EDIT: Stu, cute kid. Unlike the real world, posting a picture of your child will not win the affection of any female viewers. Someone else's children = perfect accessory. 2nd best accessory = an adorable dog in NYC.

    I love Cloak and I think the fencing jacket (bottom row, 2nd from left) is one of the most brilliant pieces of clothing I've ever seen.

    Thanks. Actually I got sick of looking at my ugly mug, and my kid's a heck of a lot cuter than I am, so I put her there. No affections sought. Just an insufferably proud father who is totally in love with his little girl.

    A single buddy of mine has asked to borrow her on occasion when he makes social calls, much the same way I used to borrow my niece when I was a single guy and she was a 3-year-old cutie.

    I have the cardigan from last year's collection - it's similar to this years fisherman cardigan, but with distressed metal crested buttons instead of frogs. Really like it, but it is really warm. I only wear it as a layer on a really cold day. I like their overcoats too, but shorter jackets are really more my thing, and they do have really well cut ones. Sort of like Army surplus, but much, much better - and a whole lot more expensive too, unfortunately. Anyway, really can't afford any extras this year, with all the travel, gifts, etc... And it's diffcult for me to justify yet another piece of casual outerwear.

    And the cover is a little over the top. As for the hairstyle issues, I have not idea what the idea was... Most militant goths I know don't even have hair that crappy.

    Artistic runway license, I suppose. Frankly, I find the hairdo's (hairdon'ts?) so distracting its hard to look at the clothes in an objective way.

    Yeah, I've seen this shirt. Filed it under "Cool, but I'll never wear it". A lot of their pieces are like that.
