    I still have yet to find a trench that really grabbed me. Funny I frequently see people with trenches that catch my attention, but when I get to shopping around for them, I can't seem to ever find one that works well for me, save a Juun J one that I missed out on.

    I like my Paco Rabanne trench I got in Korea. Looking forward to wearing it again once weather gets cooler. I'm not a fan of vests because to most Koreans I see, you can instantly become a fashion icon simply by putting on a vest.

    I feel the same way about vests too, but that's after years of seeing people in white tees put on vests, spike their hair, put on tons of leather bracelets and beads, aviators, and axe body spray, and then school me on fashion.

    Brian, you might like the APC trench coat. The XS is a bit big on me but I think it'd fit you quite nicely. It also has a button-out quilted liner. A bit expensive but a solid buy, still.

    i am more attractive than jason schwartzman, not only that but i could use the money or even just the cool points attached to modelling for BoO more so than he can.

    The physical requirements for being a model only have about 10% to do with what would demotically be described as "being good looking."

    Take it from me, with all my years in the world of male modelling-- it's a cruel, cruel business.

    Incidentally, the cover of an Alternative Apparel magalog promised a Jason Schwarzmann interview within, and I went crazy flipping through it about five times trying in vain to find it when I really wasn't interested in a Jason Schwarzmann interview, and really should have rationally been content with ogling the eminently smashable female models.

    PS Robbie, you are a pretty good looking dude, and it's good to hear you say something positive about yourself

    No! Robbie is seriously full of himself, and needs to be taken down a peg or two! [​IMG]

    Your APCs may blow out in the crotch long before you develop sick fadezz;
    Buy APCs anyway.

    The buttons on your BoO shirt may fall off in the washing machine;
    Buy BoO shirts anyway.

    Your expensive hoodie may get ganked when you rest it on the back of a chair;
    Buy expensive hoodies anyway.

    Your skinny jeans may cause people to accuse you of being gay;
    Buy skinny jeans anyway.

    You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and StyleForvm;
    It was never between you and them anyway.

    + 1, was thinking this today. Want one that isn't costumey. Not really looking to channel Harrison Ford in Blade Runner.

    ^ is that an optical illusion or is she really that skinny? My thigh is bigger than her waist.
    I think it's a combination of both? Probably more so the angle though

    For most web stores, the primary requirement would seem to be "Is he already an employee?"

    A lot of the big brands have their runway show(s) posted here: http://men.style.com/fashion/

    Thanks!

    Guys wear trenches thinking that they look like a guy in a Burberry ad or like a badass in The Matrix. They really look like Ferris Bueller on his day off.

    Does it count if you wear one to work when the weather is bad as you catch public transport?

    I like military styled clothing and can't say I've ever been one to wear a trench for it's own sake.

    It's fine if you are wearing a suit and tie. It's the pairing with casualwear and use as a jacket instead of as an overcoat that doesn't work.
