    It's a short bridge coat.

    Damn, I should be in management.

    I was aware of this because of the following logic:

    I own that type of coat.
    I do not own a peacoat.
    Therefore, that type of coat is not a peacoat.

    Rock solid!

    Actually, it's not a bridge coat. The only difference between the two is that a bridge coat is longer than a peacoat. Regardless of what anyone has told you.

    If you're looking for a proper term, it's: Officer's Pea Coat.

    (And, no, it's not whatever floats my boat... it is an Officer's Pea Coat. Bridge Coat is the longer version, the fact that most of them have the metal buttons has nothing to do with it. Metal buttons and epaulettes are a sign of rank, not style of coat.)

    Bridge coats typically have the metal buttons and epaulettes, unlike pea coats, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

    Get it?

    Collar up because it was COLD as a motherfuck, and windy, when I took the picture.

    Sauce, everything you own seems to fit you perfectly. How tall are you? I wish I had your build.

    Hype beast hatred has hit such a crescendo that I'm pre-empting a Nike revival in approximately 3 1/2 weeks.

    What kind of sweater is that, Sauce? It looks nice, and the jeans are wearing nicely too.

    Sauce, that scarf is working well with that sweater. Fills that space nicely.

    Jason looking great, though I think your more recent pictures haven't been as good quailty or well-lit as the days of yore.

    I bought a Large"”I'm 6'2" and 155 pounds, usually I wear a small or a medium. It's really fitted, it's for Japanese people, not for the average NA person.

    No taxes or anything like that, but I believe they didn't mark it as a gift or second-hand clothing, so it was just the customs ignoring it"”they might charge you. $220 (canadian) is the total I paid for it, including shipping.

    You can always get 2000db on Superfuture to buy it for you and send it to you, if you feel that's easier. [​IMG]


    my extremely late contribution regarding the brand Inapt. Their sizing really is quite strange. I purchased a military styled blazer/jacket by them somewhere in ueno. I normally wear medium but I got a large and it was still fitted. The most annoying thing is that it was terribly short as well. The garmet construction was of low quality. The epaulettes didn't line up on my shoulders and I had to reinforce the stitching on all of the buttons. They came loose very easily. Oh well, I was happy with my ~10,000 yen purchase. I wear it all the time.

    yea my previous pics were taken in an office with good lighting....the new ones are on a timer, in my dark living room, on an inferior camera, early in the morning when it's dark. blah...maybe i'll go back to office shots and quit giving excuses!
