What model is that? PWVC? If so, I don't think they're worth the price hike. I find their designs to be bland, and even if the construction is amazing, it's not really interesting to me. I have a Harrington from them, and it's just ok. PWVC makes nice jackets but not nice jackets.
It’s a PWVC and Permanent Style collab.

Oh ok, well then...I would look for something more interesting. I feel like monitaly has made at least 3 jackets that are similar recently, and would be better in almost every way

Re that PW coat; I think if you’re going to get something in the style of a Barbour, you’re best off just getting a Barbour. The price is better, the construction is good and they look better, in my opinion. Also Barbours look great when they’re battered.

What's wrong with mushrooms? Especially the psychedelic variety...
Well, it looks like some kind of pattern from the worse kind of 1970s home-knitting catalogs. That isn't a good thing, even as irony.

I feel like story.mfg has been doing a ton of stuff like this lately. I kind of like it in a hippiesque way.

And just googling for examples, that *was* stormfg so there I go.

I really like their new knit beanies. Was pretty tempted to grab the alien one.

I believe it is a womenwear piece since I think that's how they labeled it on instagram. Not that Im saying it can't be worn by men. I like the hippie esque stuff they are putting outt, and I love the home knit vibe it puts off. I feel like it's kinda hard to find fun knits, made of quality materials. Most everything is a bit too stodgy, or bit too crappy.

Valstar makes buying their products harder than it should be so I'm considering this Margiela boxy suede trucker instead

I like the mushroom sweater. To me it is funny and nothing wrong with that. So often in posts I read about people being depressed especially with what is happening now. If you can't laugh at yourself once in a while then maybe what you are wearing can bring a smile to other people. Everyone needs a little whimsy in their life.
