    Man, Burberry branding is a mess.

    I thought they merged Burberry Prorsum, Burberry London and Burberry Brit in order to increase the brand cohesion, but those were three distinct lines at three distinct levels (with the lower two of little interest from a SF POV) and it was all very straightforward.

    Now, post-consolidation, they're still displaying at least four different renderings of the brand in a single purchase:

    BURBERRY London England
    Burberrys of London
    BURBERRY
    Burberrys Sport
    ... and the knight with the Prorsum flag just for extra confusion

    Prorsum made tons of cool shearling and neoprene runway jackets for multiple consecutive seasons back around 2010-11, so it's sad to see what's happened since.

    I'm holding mitts for my daughters, who are probably going to turn out to be better kickboxers than me. The older one (10) throws her hands super fast (though she still flairs her elbows,) and has that whippet movement. The younger one (8) has a round house kick like a baseball bat.

    And for a few pro MMA fighters. One is a huge LHW-HW who is mostly a BJJ guy, but who has unearthly strength (his nickname is "Wolverine") and even though his striking is rudimentary, he hits like a brickhouse. I need these mitts, which have good shock absorption, to just not get jacked up.

    Oh, and for my six-year old son, who is a wild man with no regard for technique who throws with wild abandon. He will either learn disciplined techniques or become an MMA fighter, lol.

    Flairing your elbows when in the beginning of the punch isn't always bad. You hit harder that way. I was always throwing straight punches then my trainer worked with me to mix those in more when I was training for a pro fight years ago.

    I agree. But that's something to throw in there, like you said. And for some, if becomes a great weapon in those mad, kinetic, combos. But she's ten. She's gotta get the good habits ingrained before developing flair.

    Picked up this incredibly cool ts(s) coat from Superdenim. Lived up to expectations!

    But - it's too big. Size 3, needed a size down. If anyone is interested in it for what I paid (Superdenim had it for 70% off), let me know. Would work best for a true medium/someone between a medium and a large. Probably just UK or EU shipping, due to the size.

    Really nice coat. Not my size either, but the fit of the coat should be a bit oversized. Would you say the fit is a bit oversized or just too big?

    Edit: looked closely at the spoilered pics and I think the next size up would look better on the fit model.

    Too big, sadly, oversized had been my intention for it but it's more sack-like than louche! Tbf though, I would have been happy with a fit similar to that of the model, so my tastes probably run a bit more form-fitting.

    Nice fabric. If it weren't raglan, I'd be asking about shipping costs.
