    theyre nice, but absolutely TOO expensive.
    i dont know how much they are over there, but round here you dont get the cheapest ones for less than 500euros. (->700$!!:-?)

    In Canada, depending on the model 350 to 500 CAD (equivalent in USD). But you could get online instead of buying at a local store. Another alternative would be ebay. Sellers sell them for quiete cheap.

    what do you guys think of the jacket?

    its a zara jacket, the photos wash out the color, its a true olive green with tan brown on the bottom and detailing. 100%cotton..feels decent but not super warm.

    i dont like the crappy buttons, they feel like they are goin to fall off at any point. and the tan brown detailing looks sorta weird. its cut a bit loose as well but not too bad.
    but its only $90 or so. not sure if i should keep it or hold out for something better.

    I didn't want to resurrect this old thread, but I don't think that there is anywhere else to put this. I recently made an amazing purchase in the way of a jacket, even though it's summer. I bought a vintage 1945 WWII Navy issue peacoat from an antique mall. Even though it's 60+ years old, it is in great condition, and has all the details. Anchor buttons, chinstrap, courduroy pockets, and it's heavy as all hell. The fit is slimming, but still very masculine. This coat is the real deal that designers today (Mister Freedom, Schott, etc) get their inspiration from. I'll post pics sometime. The only flaw is that the liner is a little ripped, so I'm going to have a new on sewn in to make it perfect.

    I picked up the same deal not too recently, and posted pictures if I recall. Though I believe mine was just a few years post WWII. The Pea Coat is the definition of timeless fashion.

    Not exactly appropriate for snowboarding however. In those cases, this comes out:

    Those type of jackets or very comfortable, especially when you want to sleep during lecture. I just can't feel comfortable wearing them out; the "fluff" factor just isn't me.

    referring to the lambskin Goose jacket..

    It's butter soft. Looks bulky but it wears light.

    I've been trying to find a nice coat for winter, but didn't have any luck. I want something slim but long, no 3/4 coat. Doesn't seem to be "en vogue" right now :-(
    It could, for example, look like this:
    [​IMG]

    Maybe a little less formal, but I think this thing might also work with a nice pair of jeans. It's from U-ni-ty and quite expensive ($ 817) plus I only found it on ssense.com, so importing it from the USA to Germany would kill me off money-wise.

    If anyone knows something similar (or totally different but slim and long ;-) ), please let me know. Thanks.

    Edit: Oh, and of course I have searched already, online aswell as in verious shops where I live...so I just ask if somebody by chance has seen something nice, 'cause all by youself you always miss something. Just added that because a guy on the previous page complained about having others search for you...
