    nah. boston for about a year now. didn't have a jacket last year except a canvas/cotton parka that i just layered a thermal and a sweater under. this isn't canada goose heavy ski jacket warm or anything but should be solid. hard to find good cold weather jackets that i are still slim and nice looking

    I like tee's new coat too. But I'm not sure where I'd be able to wear it myself. Regarding fits with extra volume.... I have noticed is there is a tendency in fashion circles towards either going very slim or very oversized in many styles. Often the middle ground may be shunned since that's what the plebeian non-fashion types (or perhaps the older generation) tend to wear-- somewhat like a reaction to be the opposite or to push the envelope. Take for example those hugely oversized Yohji pants. If they were more normally proportioned, I often wonder if everyone would look at them and say they look like unfashionable sweatpants that some fat guy might wear. The added volume almost seems like its used more to distance the design from the ordinary and set it apart, as opposed to simply providing some great look that flatters one's body shape. Now before someone gets all worked up and says I'm wrong, realize that I'm talking about the effect the pants have on the audience and not condemning the style as looking bad. This is even more discernible with women's jeans. For example, many stores lately will show extremely skinny jeans or baggy boyfriend jeans, but the middle ground is shunned as if unfashionable. Yet look at stores where mostly unfashionable people shop, and all you will see is the middle ground sized jeans.
    I advocate this middle-volume. fuck fitted
