I had the shearling flight jacket until recently. I'm a true 46 in all tailoring and a medium in most other clothing items - I bought a 46 and felt like a slim 46 - so TTS on the slim side, sleeves were on the tight side in particular.

Anyone happen to know which collection this is from? Type 1 style with japanese garment died cotton. Picked it up for a cool $6 and went in my closet. Some of my OL pieces has the collection on the tag, not this one.

Decided to ignore the fact that all of r/malefashion has one and picked up the acid landscape shirt on sale. It's dope as hell.

Does anyone still check w/ OL: the new season is like scattershot compared to the cohesiveness of previous years — it’s actually a fair assessment of where fashion is situated atm, but I just cannot get into most it. They even seem to have done away with some of the old shirt cuts that were the strongpoint to me. Aye.

There’s a decent amount that I like.
The last few seasons are definitely more fashion and less basic, for lack of a better description.
The px shirts are great, the less borrowed shirt in that random paint pattern is really cool too.

I wonder how well they sell?. I guess it appeals to a certain type of fashion crowd?

Still some good stuff every season, but to me the prices are getting to high for full price (given the appeal). Got a great linen coat on deep sale though this year though, first piece from OL in years.

Still like the silk shirts even if the price is getting away from comfortable cost for just a beater slub, and most seasons I find something printed they do pretty interesting like the acid landscape shirt last spring or the graffiti sleveless shirt this fall. Overall though the direction their entire aesthetic has taken has really tanked the interest for me.

I still like it. Their prints are still top notch and the fabrics are cool. The Pryana jacket they did last season was really cool, the camino boot is a classic, borrowed chinos are excellent too.
It’s become a fair bit more directional recently, for better or worse.

I am a huge OL fan and have been buying their stuff mostly secondhand over the last couple of years. Favorites are the wool rodeo box shirt, lab blazer, and their knitwear. I just really like the fit and haven’t found anything like them, offering boxy fits with unique designs that also translate easily into a work setting. As I’m pretty limited budget wise, they also hit deep sale and/or resell at a reasonable price on the secondhand market. I’ve seen some great stuff from other brands like Lemaire but it’s just too expensive for me. So, OL hits that sweet spot.

Unpopular opinion, but I feel like some of the Uniqlo U items fill the void — the materials will obviously be different, but a lot of the shapes are in the same neighborhood. I even bought one of the regular Qlo Jersey Chore Coats and it has a great fit for the cost. I am in competition with you, though, for the previous seasons’ OL shirts and coats. I even scored a pair of the First Cut denim recently, which I really like. The materials of the newer OL garms do not impress me, I have to admit, especially at the price point.
