    Regis, I like it as well, though those shoulders do look very structured on the model, as caveat said.

    Cool concept

    @ceoceo I don't really like the big anchor buttons on that version. Otherwise absolutely yes.

    Thanks for the comments on the Jacket guys. It is definitely on my list to purchase. Now which color looks cleaner? Navy (above) or Royal Blue (which I am leaning towards)

    I have a lot of navy as far as jackets so I was thinking of something different, but yeah I shouldn't complicate whats been working for me. I was thinking of incorporating royal blue into my wears but that blue does look hard to use everyday (I'm going to regret it). I think it just reminded me of a Gareth Pugh Jacket I wanted a long time ago

    I've tried on the W+H parka. The hood actually has a wire in it, so you can bend it to your desired shape. It's just a shell though, would definitely need to layer if cold cold.

    Royal blue looks a lot better in a vacuum. The bright color jives with the funky pattern.

    Good news is damn near every Margiela retailer I know of is stocking it so no shortage (No doubt Mr. Porters will go at 30% off)

    I'm told under good light the navy is supposed to look like this ^ which is nice since it comes across as darker on pics. Now I just need to see for myself. Thanks again for the opinions fellas

    i don't like that jacket, and i don't think it would go well with your other MMM pieces. you always look so good in unstructured stuff since you're well built and proportioned. i don't think that jacket would be flattering on you.

    Neither of these look very thick. I'm guessing that you'll probably need to layer quite extensively with either one. So, if you're looking for something that will actually keep you warm in winter, I'd say neither, but if you just mean based on aesthetics, then I'd say the Ace Hotel x Alpha Industries.
