    i can try to take some. it's a medium weight stretchy wool flannel with a very soft hand. more of a cardigan wool than a suiting wool. when i opened the package and felt the fabric i was shocked at how nice it felt.

    my fiancee only buys and uses vintage luggage. we have like 10 suitcases in our apartment. it's awful. they're all super heavy, they can't hold anything, and none of them have wheels.

    I don't know how to ask this without sounding mean-spirited, but is your wedding going to be as delightfully twee as your apartment?

    haha one can hope. my apartment is ok. the building is 110 years old and was renovated in the 80s, so it has nice floors, high ceilings, and a dogshit kitchen. i will say our key rack and coat rack are functional.

    What is the difference between Barena and Uniqlo when the fabric for both are blends? Looks nice, Teger but personally for me I could never justify spending the additional premium for a jacket-cardigan when Uniqlo or the likes are releasing the same thing in similar cuts, cropped in a more casual fit with complementing fabric choice that lends itself as an "easy jacket". More so, Yoox selection is not that great from what I have seen. Stores like TBS seem to have nicer jackets but also you are paying $200+

    I cannot make sense of it.

    And if you just pay an additional $50-100 you can get something a bit nicer from tagliatore, LBM etc.

    I can see these jackets working well for you, Tegs, as I can see you traveling a lot in the future doing interviews with designers but don't want to be dressed over the top. #menswear

    barena fabric is about a 100 times nicer than uniqlo. this jacket is nicer than the LBM jackets i've handled, and the cut is completely different. you can't really compare them.

    looks great, I wish the barena cut worked for me because I like the fabrics and the unstructured nature of the pieces. They just don't look right on me though.
