those 2 are by far the nicer ones. also like this one from barbour:
^^looks cool but I wonder about the quality from CT, especially up against Barbour. Let us know what you find out.
Arizona driving gloves!
That one doesn't look half bad.
PS also had i think a blue nylon one, that IMO was much nicer than the orange (short collar, not folded) but its no longer instock
"quality" is an overabused notion , especially for a casual piece like this.
While I agree it is not nearly as tangible or important as it is in tailored goods, I have a couple Barbour coats that have had the crap kicked out of them and still look great. Inversely, I've also bought cheap jackets that end up failing me before the season is even over.
A shame this is only offered in orange...
The Barbour Chelsea Polarquilt is a slim-fit that looks great.
I just picked up a Moleskin Liddesdale from Orvis a while back. I think the 'matte' look of this fabric makes it look a little richer than the standard Liddesdale. Maybe I'm just rationalizing the purchase though...
My only beefs are that the 'leather' trim on the pockets looks a little cheap. That and there's some padding in the collar that makes it look a bit lumpy unless you turn it up.
agreed the liddesdale is not too dissimilar either while we're on coats i found this really nice aethestics from Brooks... too bad the jacket is nylon
I find the Chelsea to be a bit thin for fall. Matt Fulham is pretty much the same jacket, only a bit warmer.
The CT jacket is super sold out. It does look nice
Last year I picked up a Lavenham Dentson and I really like it a lot. I don't find it to be too boxy.
