    Looks kind of Goth/Trenchcoat mafia to me....sorry.

    Pretty cool concept, reminds me of my old Kendo sparring uniform. However it's very hard to pull off unless you have a history of wearing similar post-apocalypse, punk-goth clothes

    I don't like it. I don't have a problem with more fashion forward stuff, but this lacks shape and any sort of compelling design. Disparate parts of it aren't bad, but it doesn't work as a whole.

    That's good if you can pull off the Neo meets S&M aesthetic.

    It could be massively hot if you had it tailored through the torso.

    It's actually quite fitted through the body on me in a medium, especialy with a light sweater or hoodie under it.

    I know it does look a little dark or goth, but I think worn with fairly conservative streetwear items (ie APC, Dior Homme, ACNE and the sutch)it will look quite good.

    My only concerns are it may not be warm enough. However, I think with a sweater underneath I will be fine for all but the coldest days in Toronto. Also, I can only locate it at Holts in Toronto and they mark their stuff up a lot (ie APC jeans $215CDN). So if I buy it there, I know I will be over paying by quite a bit.

    Not a huge fan. Looks like an experimental M65.....hard to see it from the pics. Maybe it is just my PC.
