BBJ actually puts out a different indigo patchwork jacket every season. They have one every season but the materials and even shapes vary. Each season’s patch jacket is unique to that season
Are the Spring/Summer versions lighter than F/W?

That looks pretty slick. Is it MTO/MTM only if it's Stoffa?

Thanks for the heads up man. It's always even more tempting when you've been eyeing something for a while, and THEN it goes on sale.

Unfortunately I'm broke :crazy:
Aren't we all tho? But you'll be more broke if you buy it at full price! 😂

jk, good luck whenever you decide to buy it!

I just received an old Berk for Ballantyne knit back from French American Reweaving Co. What a great service. Two small holes magically rewoven for $70.

Thanks for the recommendation.

After seeing Derek recommend the 3sixteen crewneck knit twice recently, I ended up impulse buying it last week. Pretty much everything Derek wrote about with respect to Shaker/Shaker-adjacent knits, as well as everything he wrote about with respect to black knits, is so spot on. I can see lots of different outerwear options really popping against it.

One other thing I like about it is that the raglan sleeves are more of a J than a diagonal line, which I think makes my shoulders look broader than raglan sleeves typically look on me.

Took a couple pics of fits that are more muted & monochromatic than I plan to actually wear it in the future, but wanted to share anyway.

That's a nice jacket, I dig it and would probably wear it.

I was trying to think of the correct word for wearable patchwork anything, and I think it's "tonal."

Most of these jackets don't really have any differing/jarring tones, so it feels congruent.

One day I'm going to buy some kind of patchwork denim jacket too. This is brighter, but I think it works.



I think @Gerry Nelson has one that definitely caught my eye.
To follow up, got the Universal Works jacket in and it is awesome in person

I think this is the kind of GTH jacket that doesn't work so well IMO, the tones are too jarring.

Something like this works better, but the cut is unfortunately a 3-button

Any fit pics?

In an effort to identify the mt parka with buttons, I found a blog called Basecamp Vintage.
Normally I like to go for 100% natural materials, I don't know if it's Derek's writing or what but I'm really taken with this parka.
