    The chore coat and the collar coat looked promising, though it also looked like the kind of thing where fabric makes/breaks it, nameen?

    Don't worry, you're not missing much. The W+H sweats are not amazing enough to merit the hype they've received on this forum. They have fairly nice fabric compared to most common sweats, but they look mediocre when worn. From the picture your cheaper sweats provide nearly the same slim fitting look that everyone seems to like.

    wjk M66 "cold weather" coat

    This has to be one of the best made slim fitting M66 coats available. The fabric is super heavy and it has these huge industrial looking Riri zips everywhere. The zipper style matches the coat-- RY zippers would look wrong here in my opinion.

    Inside there is a removable bomber jacket that is responsible for providing about half the warmth, making the coat wearable for a larger portion of the year. I thought the inner bomber might be a throw away piece, but I've been wearing it a lot. It's a good piece all by itself and does not look cheap when seperated from the heavier M66 coat.

    One surprise is how high and narrow the arm holes are cut on these even in size M. For such a bulky coat I was not expecting this. It is tighter than any other wjk piece size M I have worn.

    Uncontrol, you previously said you thought wjk looked temping but couldn't see it fitting into your style. While I mostly agree with your assessment, I could definitely see some of wjk's outwear pieces working for you. They seem to make a few vaguely glam rocker-like pieces each season. If you find one you like, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

    BB1 is that you or a shop photo?

    I really like the liner on that, but I can't say the same about the outer. I guess I've always been averse to those jackets and i don't know why

    BB1 owns a mine? Like a mining minerals? That is cool

    That M66 is something that must be tried on, I didn't know why anyone would pay $1000 for a jacket like that, but it's a really solid piece, good for three seasons for sure

    Still keeping an eye open for a sick ass m65 one of these years, had the wh from 06 but didn't look right worn and fabric too stuff (fok loves his iirc). The black wh with fox fur was sick but I could never get over the badly designed lower pockets.

    Nice gdl, I don't do cropped knits but that jacket is cool tb I assume? I like how your all street these days.

    Jacket is nanamica. Sweater is normal length in what I consider my size. I'm sure Thom would disapprove of my wearing a sweater that hits below the belt and with sleeves long enough to cover my wrists...

    I've been posting in MC CBD thread for weekday outfits :) but otherwise that side has become nearly unbearable

    Yeah I can't say I really remember what the fabric was like, I wasn't looking too much into KIN outerwear since they had a bunch of attachment jackets I was busy admiring. But knowing Sydney and the stuff the makes, the jackets are probably top quality and as nice as all his other stuff
