What do you think? I've been leaning towards trying to pick one up on ebay but I was curious as to the thoughts on here. If anyone has one, what do you make of the fit and construction? edit: Realized it's N2B. My bad

Those jackets always look feminine to me. The length is what does it. Why not just get a parka?

Uhh it is a parka? They're the vintage standard military issue so I'm a bit surprised you find them fem.

I had that RG jacket. Picked it up at a sample sale. Very well constructed, quality garment but I did feel it was too short so I sold it on. Maybe you can rock that look, but jackets at this length are found mostly in womenswear.

For about 5 years here, standard she-douche uniform was uggs/yoga pants/fur lined parka. Not necessarily the same jacket, but obviously deriving inspiration. I think they are still rockable, but you have to keep their recent history in mind.
