    PM'd. HDR on my iphone made it look a little weird, looks more like the stock photo in real life.

    what size did you get ltb and what size are you normally?

    i got the size 3. usually wear a 36/37 chest so it's slightly large on me, but i only tried it with a thin bd under it last week. will see what else works this weekend perhaps.

    Finally, I got my Dior Wool Duffle Coat from saks. I tried the Dior asymmetric blazer size 40 before, it cuts like a traditional Dior and that's why I ordered a size 42 for this coat. But this one is so danm huge. LIke a traditional fitting of brooksbrothers or Polo RL. There's no cutting at all. I think the cutting caries piece by piece. Anyway, so disappointed.

    Just got this one. Ridiculously thick and heavy knit. Heavier than a leather jacket.

    ^Sunglasses look nice.

    I bought a SNS Stark (? I don't know the name, it's the one with the chunky h-bone cabling, like 5 metal buttons up the front) a long time ago and my mom mailed it to me recently, I actually forgot about it. It's been welcome in this weather, I wear it with a TOJ ocbd, the SNS, and then I have a cotton APC mac with a button out liner to cut the wind, and I stay reasonably warm.

    nah it's fairly light, but the SNS is so heavy for insulation that I just need a windcheating layer. Korean winters are always bad, but it's mainly the wind chill factor that they never really measure that well. It's different measuring in the middle of some field, as opposed to the actual wind you get blowing in your face as it gets funneled down a street of skyscrapers with no space between them - that shit sucks.

    ]*sweater* and these too

    Nice pickups. I just got rectangular eyeglasses in that same color and hoping they work well with the shape of my face.

    Also, so you're liking that YA knit? How's the zipper on that thing? I loved the look of that one since I saw it on forward and was contemplating whether it was "worth the price of admission". What say you?

    It sounds like the Stark if it has the high stiff ribbed neck and no pockets. I love mine for the same reason, it's my go to as the top layer before my coats in winter.

    The YA is phenomenal - it's probably twice as heavy as my SNSH Stark - amazing, soft wool. Fit is slim and very trim through the arms - combined with the chunkiness, it makes for a very cool garment.

    Zipper is a chunky YKK that's clearly up to the task

    Knit looks completely different when zipped up all the way because of the funnel shape of the collar - almost looks like the YA funnel knit (without the asymmetry). No idea why Forward didn't show a picture zipped up.
