    Seriously, no idea if it has some sentiment to you, so I don't want to be too mean, but I don't see the appeal in that jacket and also you not beeing too far away from myself, I feel it's not yet cold enough that one would need to wear a jacket like that.

    :D awesome meme.
    Its 4 degrees here, cold enough for me to bring out my good ol' flying jacket.
    I see how an Irvin Jacket wouldn't appeal to a german though :p

    Actually I wore the US made flying jacket of my father yesterday morning at -1°C too, so I do not dislike flying jackets, no matter if allied or axis, after all.
    I just think this Irvine one is a bit too much for the given temperatures and the fact that you are wearing it in the streets, to university or office.
    Also I was for quite some time looking for an appropriate moment to intersperse the meme as the otter is just uber cute! ;)

    I hazz an axis nibble :p
    Was just messin', mate. You're free to dislike ofc, no offence taken.
    In terms of cold I can assure you that its definately not too warm for me now. Maybe I get cold more quickly now I'm on a cut (its a gym thing).
    The otter is indeed ubercute. Otters rule :)

    I request a picture of yours in a Cesna or similiar type of aircraft or in a very nice oldtimer for reasons of vox approved outfit coherence!

    That's a rare miss from you Crat. That jacket just does not go with that outfit. I like the jacket, don't get me wrong, but it just looks out of place there.

    I think I know why Crat has been shooping out his face all this time.

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that they either made it themselves or had someone custom make it... Can't seem to find where I read that though.

    Friday biz-cas attack. I always try brown shoes with these pants, but they never look right. Wish the sweater was a lighter grey.

    Out of curiosity, what do you find so misplaced about the combo?
    I see most guys over on the fedora lounge rocking theirs with jeans and thick turtlenecks as well.

    Looks fine but very 'safe' Black_umbrella.
    Lighter gray would lighten things up a bit.

    The turtle neck and jeans are more of a refined casual look. The jacket and the boots are more of a rugged casual look. The combo can sometimes work but I don't think these elements go well together. A sleeker jacket or a more rugged shirt/pant combo would offset the differences.

    Pants are a little less safe than they look in that image. It's dark before 6 am where i live.

    Whoozaa! Didn't see that in the pic black_umbrella. In that case, great stuff. Dunno if a lighter sweater would have been better tbh. Maybe not actually.

    Rambo, whilst I agree that thin turtlenecks make for a refined casual look I think these submarine type turtlenecks are rugged enough to go with the jacket. But thats just me.
