    That’s awesome. I really wish the fabric was more breathable though, as I would love to wear the whole suit during the summer.

    @happyriverz cheers! that's definitely a downside to the fabric, I probably will have to lose the beret when it gets warmer so maybe a different hat choice could help me.

    Dogs have a fine appreciation for Craig Green (Straps and Tassels)

    Recently picked up a SS15 'Samurai' jacket and it is a lovely thing. The material is half viscose which gives it a silky hand and none of the crinkle I associate with some of Craig Greens polys and nylons. The lining is also cotton which helps a lot with breathing and wicking away moisture. The jacket hits an interesting middle ground with a winter weight material and a very airy design. I wouldn't want to wear this jacket in icy weather, but luckily for me it never gets that cold around my parts. The pockets are set low enough that they are very comfy and practical to use, something I didnt like about the high set workwear jacket pockets.

    Matching top and bottom on FWRD for a pretty good price right now if you want to dip your toes into a "full" Craig Green look: it's nothing too crazy.

    @colabear the left one is in displayed in a museum so that's my logic. Also I feel the colors really suit your style

    Yes, I chose the left one. Now, I’m a member of the CG Holiday Desert Island gang alongside you and WBaker

    Found some assorted fit pics from around the web of the SS15 jacket I recently picked up. I also learned Craig Green had it labeled the "Warrior Jacket".
    Photo dump in spoiler :)

    The last one seems to me to be the most "coherent," since it leans into the whole samurai theme.

    I forgot that I have this bag that’s basically 3 portfolios attached together into 1. I think I’ll start using it now that it’s Fall

    Went to the Suspension Point sample sale today and the boucle Craig Green pants are something else in person.

    They just have an incredible texture. The only down side is that the fabric is very dry, and the pants are unlined, so if you have sensitive skin you might find it a tad itchy.

    I highly recommend this piece.

    Antonioli has some of the pieces from SS2019 for pre-order. The coolest pieces to me in that collection are the pieces where the fabric has been printed, and then printed on top of that, to create an almost vibrating effect, like this jacket. If you are a fan of the paradise jacket from the SS2018 season, you'll probably really like this, as to me, this is the next iteration of the same concept.

    On the less crazy side of things, there are the matching tops and bottoms with the removable ropes, so you can make it as outlandish or normal as you want.

    @happyriverz i'm already starting to save up for that jacket, wasn't blown away by the current tent jackets / the front jacket flap looked weird when the jacket was unzipped. Thanks for sharing as usual!
