    I prefer the #2 but I see #1 being better for you. Just my opinion.

    my choice is #3....for obvious reasons :foo:

    Real McCoys A2 for $1800? Have TOJ (and calf N. Hollywood) already but want horsehide, just don't think it's worth the cost / vintage ones can be had for a lot less

    If you can swing it you should. Real McCoy stuff is top notch - also, not sure it's worth playing vintage roulette.

    Yeah been looking for a vintage one but never found one that was in condition / style I wanted. TOJ is ok, lamb is supper nice a bit too lightweight for me. N. Hollywood one is calf and I've been on the fence with it as design wise something isn't clicking with me (thankfully no one bought it yet)

    And fit is solid all around minus upper arms which are a bit tight from the one I tried on a while back. $1800 for a jacket I'd probably wear for years is solid price over time

    Yeah, I'm gonna pass on both.

    This A1923 jacket is what I'm looking for, but at 3x the price of the Devoa, more than I want to pay:

    Anyone wanna unload one for under 10 bills, lemme know!

    Good call. It was an expensive lesson for me to learn not to kop anything I didn't absolutely want.

    The Augusta jacket is great, but it's essentially a Harnden piece slightly reimagined. That being said I do prefer his cut to PH's, and it's on my wishlist.

    There're better Devoa jackets this season too.

    Need a winter knit, Inverallan isn't doing it for me.
    SNS or Schneider?

    Hood is no good. Pick another Schneider, or another SNS.

    (Or buy my cardigan)

    No that one is gone :slayer:

    There's too much going on with the SNS (and the main pattern is busy to begin with), Schneider is alright from the neck down but hooded cardigans look tacky.

    Schneider knitwear is great, but SNS knitwear is seriously on another level. If it's a day-to-day knit, like you need a basic knit to keep you warm, get the SNS for sure. They're definitely the most "functional" knitwear I've seen if you can find a piece that works for you. I wear my SNS knits to work almost everyday in the winter and they have almost no pilling or degradation even after 4-5 years of use. Some of the Schneider stuff is a lot more delicate.

    I like the SNS a lot but would never wear it myself, too busy. I like the looks of the Schneider a lot better but the hood ruins it for me...

    the cheap price tag doesn't make it any less ugly.
