    Band Of Outsiders Colorblocked parka
    what do u guys think?


    Love that but when I looked closer I took a step back. $1K for is that last season's parka? You've got to like that a lot to drop it on something that will definitely stand out with the color blocks. Make sure you have the sizing down, too, as I think Context isn't too keen on returns.

    Obviously, an awesome brand though. Everything they make looks good on a trim guy.

    ^It's fucking expensive, and there are so, so many awesome jackets to get in that price range. It would be nice to get just a couple leather accents on a > 1K jacket too But I hate to even bring the fiscal aspect into question and I do think it's a handsome coat and appealing colorway. Not a huge fan of the bright white zipper , though. For some unexplained reason it makes me think "Ski Patrol" or some shit.....maybe it's just the model and his accessories..

    I owned that jacket for a short period of time, and will tell you that it's not worth 1k, let alone 1.5k. I purchased it BNWT from fellow SF member wurlwyde for around $500 or so, and felt that it was only an okay deal for the price. It had some nice details, and then some not-so-nice details. Zipper and hood especially felt cheap.

    Looked too snowboard-ish for me, too. [​IMG]

    This jacket hasn't dropped yet, but prolly will in the next couple months for under 300 euros:

    An awesome (and somewhat affordable) alternative to White M and Junya or over the top? I kind of love it.


    Cool jacket, tell me more about it! Brand, where to buy, any more colors?

    I won't be copping a Junya one this fall since I blew that wad on a camera but whatever label this is seems to have potential for something cool.

    Right on, sipang. They're stuff looks pretty neat, but that is by far their most adventurous piece. They have nicely tailored trouser/chinos as well. Worth a look.

    ok, this is kind of a in the future should I/shouldn't I buy, but for the sake of mental masturbation, I figured I'll post this.

    at some point, I want to pick up some new outerwear, as my current "collection" is pretty weak. right now I'm trying to decide between 3 options: toj collared moto in whiskey, toj baseball jacket in sand tan suede, or some true winter outerwear (maybe something cdw depending on sizing, probably something down).

    pros of the leather: tougher, last longer, most versatile.
    cons of the leather: expensive, I may be self conscious about wearing it

    pros of the baseball jacket: fits my intended aesthetic (preppy americana - similar to what tween and scott do.) the best, cheaper than leather jacket
    cons: can't wear in the rain, probably not that warm, fit pics from people other than drew are honestly disappointing so far.

    pros of a down jacket: warmest, probably the most practical, can be worn all winter long, during snow storms and the like
    cons: haven't really seen anything I like, current season stuff will probably be expensive. down might make my slightly chubby build look worse.

    help me sf.
