    If you don't mind me asking, where do you cop Valstar jackets?

    Can't decide between the Valstar bomber or trucker:

    Trucker no question about it.

    I got mine from Porter.

    Forum affiliate NMWA also stocks them - I will be picking up one from them when they restock my target piece this fall ~

    Yeah I'm not in a rush to cop yet as I'm indecisive about the color.

    Keri Langerman did a nice job styling the bomber on Jude Law in Vox Lux

    i have the bomber and it's a great spring jacket, though the mossy gray is not the easiest to style. I mostly wear it with light denim and a tee. that said, i want a valstar trucker too =)

    Both those Valstars seem nice. If it were me, I'd probably go with the trucker, but for no real rhyme or reason.

    I like the Valstar trucker too but that color isn't optimal imo. Anything on the brown spectrum is much easier. Black is also cool in a Bradley-Cooper-in-a-Star-is-Born kinda way

    This came to me for pretty cheap. Can I pull it off if I don't own a horse? Also I'm probably scared of horses.

    I wish the sole was smoother and less cottage-cheesy. Otherwise, looks nice.
