hey sf, what kind of fw outerwear should I buy?
^ see my post in the WM thread
The kind with a shit ton of fur and the most zeros on the pricetag, duh
lol, I saw that. I think I'd just look like a little kid in his dad's jacket...
Mikey, if you're going to drop a fair but not obscene amount of change on something for FW, I really think you should get like an EG Field Parka or something. Super versatile, goes great with your wardrobe. It may not be "swagged out" but it's a good looking coat that will still be warm, and I really don't think you'll wear a blazer as much as you think you will, especially in school.
"fair but not obscene" is a great way to describe exactly how much money I want to spend.
I agree about the blazer, I don't want to be "that kid" who wears a blazer to class every day. I like the look of the field parka, but just looking at it on a computer screen, it seems kind of bland. idk, but when I see a junya or wm piece online, I keep noticing detail after detail that keep it super interested, whereas e.g. seems to be nice, but not that exciting. however, this may not be true in real life though, and is probably why junya and wm is on another price level than eg.
also, I have that gap work coat which is actually surprisingly good quality, and a field parka would be very close to the same thing. granted, it would hopefully fit better as the gap one is kind of big (fit pic).
I'm kind of tempted to wait for TOJs winter wool offerings, but drew seems to like long jackets that wouldn't really work for me.
Well, EG is definitely more rustic side and straightforward. Can't you get a used Junya with your budget ? I'm sure you could find something around 400-500.
edit: scratch that, get this http://cgi.ebay.com/Undercoverism-U...port_Coats&hash=item4aadbc71a7#ht_1302wt_1398
or a wizard, think about it ...
yeah, a used junya would be ideal, but it's not like a ton pop up on b&s every day .
Srsly, though, don't spend more than you're comfortable with to please the internet. I mean, designer clothing is (overwhelmingly) a poor investment, the return is the pleasure you take in it. I agree with Scott's mantra of Wear Dope Shit, but still important to Pay Those Bills and Eat Dope Food and Stay Out Late.
If you're only concerned about the length relative to the stock sizes, shouldn't you be able to add/subtract the way you can with anniversary and varsity offerings?
Anyway, I'm waiting to see what the TOJ lineup is like before I start sizing up my options.
^^ what about an EG Bedford or Norfolk?
Yeah in person the Field Parka is actually really great, but I had no idea about that Gap jacket and it would definitely be redundant so nevermind that.
You want something like that Junya hunting jacket epoc sold on B&S?
I blame RFX!!!! (10) I agree with this to the extent that none of it should be done to please the internet, but we all have our vices. It's come out in here that some people that spend a lot on clothes don't Stay Out Late or Eat Dope Food. Mike probably has a lot more invested in bike stuff than many other members here but that's His Thing. He's been around a while and I think now he just wants to do that fun thing that is "buy a crazy piece of clothing for more money than one is used to" and enjoy it.
Especially in college. No need to be slangin' 500$ designer outerwear when you're just gonna be too scared to wear it to a party, which you will be, no matter what you say. Be smart, here. 500$ buys a lot of Rainier, to be worked off later with that free gym membership. LESS MONEY ON CLOTHES MIKEY MORE MONEY ON GYM. You know what attracts bitches more than camo-lined outwerwear? Champagne, sashimi and a haircut.
B+S for leather jacket, natch. Something with waist suppression.
yes! exactly. it practically made me cry that his was too small. (6).
well I get free gym at school, but I already spend 15hrs/week on the bike, not need to spend more time in the gym, and drink is cheap. my buddies and I can split a 30 and that is plenty for a night. if I spend $15/night, it's a lot, I rarely buy anything once I'm out, because that's how you end up blowing $100 on a tab.
if I could find a decent leather on b+s I might go for it, but I doubt I'll find anything that'll fit.
but maybe I will just save my money for this winter, idk. I've got a decent collection of button downs and between that and some decent jeans I'm already ahead of most of my friends, lol. I've got that ll bean shirt jacket which fits better than the gap and is warm enough for all winter.
