    Naissance barn/chore jacket looked really cool. The one NoMan had with the velvet collar and nice hardware to go along with that blanket lining. So good, honestly bummed I slept

    I like Feathered Friends, good name for a company making down products. Also why not Crescent Down Works. Word is they came up with the fill system, 700 fill etc. if that matters. Also North Face purple label seems to be doing a very solid remake of the sierra parka.

    Those look really nice, but I'm pretty sure that's objectively too much.

    I've always hated everything about Amiri but kind of been drawn to these boots.

    Would remove leather tassels on zipper pulls.

    Both are pretty boring, but that’s just me. Bland silhouettes, stitching and flat design.

    I saw some non-professional shots of those back when they came out and they looked underwhelming. Also, not a huge fan of felt on boots unless you're going for real-deal feltboots.

    They are amazing but $2k (free shipping!) and I need someone to tell me they are ridiculous.

    I have some buttero chelseas in black suede coming so hopefully they will work and I will move on

    On the Canada Goose debate. I have a parka from last season, black, classic, fur-trimmed hood. Nothing compares in terms of heat and the cut is slim enough for the efficiency. I get all the hate, since it is overblown, but it's so effective and still not ubiquitous because the price point is moderately high.

    CG makes an excellent product. I think the brand is looked down on here because of how common it is seen IRL. If not for that, I think the brand would be better regarded.

    Some of this season’s Junya x CG pieces were pretty cool also.

    Jacquemus shirt. Product shots look a bit boring but the fabric detail looks nice up close. Would wear with swimshorts and other summer patterned shorts/lightweight pants.

    To keep your pants up? Seriously, I have a few pairs of jeans I can't wear beltless. Plus any time in tucking a shirt in I'd rather have a belt. Agreed that most of the time beltless is preferable.

    They are objectively ridiculous.

    So no thoughts on the Amiri Shane boots?

    I'm gonna end up buying them, and it'll be your fault if they suck, SF. :p
