Robert Himself said:I love that piece as well. AW 2008 was only the 3rd season of RG and I was still trying to determine where this whole thing should go. I had tried to stay away from Cloak references early on and this was the first time I felt ok to get back to that comfort zone.I still really loved the military references and it went well with the inspiration of the turn of the century explorer. This collection was dark and moody and I still quite like it. This was done with our Japanese production partner S.O. Inc. and I really wanted to test their capabilities. We did a lot of very technical work in this collection and used very robust fabrics on a lot of the outerwear.
This jacket in particular has some great details. It is based off of the Hooded bomber. I have been interested in ways to accentuate the shoulder in interesting ways, because I think that it gives strength to the garment and the person wearing it. I still really like that line. The fabric combos are also important for this piece. It allows for color blocking but even in the all black version, you still have the texture combo that is really nice.
When we prepare for the shows, I sit with my stylist Yuji Takenaka, and we begin to build looks. That means we are basically putting together outfits. The we use the looks to build a story. We don’t use every piece from the collection, as it would become too long of a show. I have always been a fan of a short and powerful show.
Don't sell---- I have this same piece and I reckon its one of his best bomber jackets Geller has ever produced. I am now two sizes to big to even wear it ( I have a 48) and I hope one day I drop the 10-15kgs (20-30lbs) so I can rock it once agin.Selling a black cotton linen bomber in 48/50 (can't find tagged size). Normal signs of wear. See attached photos.
Good find! Are the pants vintage Geller too?Not the best pic, but eager to share my FW08 Himalaya jacket. Didn't know the green colorway existed, and it's brand new! Crazy to think this jacket sat around for 12 years, but now it's gonna get the love it deserves.

I asked Robert about the Himalaya garments and he said it would be okay if I posted his quick reply here,
Looks great, the pants look awesome, they look far more tapered on you than the online pics I’ve seen. How tall are you? The inseam seemed pretty short on the ssense measurements. Thanks!
I'm 5ft 9" tall and wearing a 46. I've found these to fit pretty slim (what I was hoping for). The fit is more like the runway pics than those I've seen in store pics.Looks great, the pants look awesome, they look far more tapered on you than the online pics I’ve seen. How tall are you?

Neither, although I did get the texture shorts yesterday?Has anybody tried the dyed lounge pants or textured trousers yet?
Agreed. I'm usually a 46 in gelller pants/shorts and these were too slim/tapered for me. Hesitant to try 48, but I may give it another shot.I'm 5ft 9" tall and wearing a 46.
