Would consider it second hand but frankly only ever see big lad sizes. Plus you gotta get the matching liner which is double the price.

And really how do you deal with it when you go out and your coat is wetting out and your friend is wearing a #30 mountain warehouse jacket and gives you side eye because you're like "I can't go to the pub m8 I'm getting too damp here you see most waterproof membranes are constructed from up to three layers blah blah blah"

It's not like they have impeccable can't be got anywhere else design or anything. Would rather bag Aspesi which is probably not much superior technically but half the price and easier to get on discount.

Actually when people say it wets out do they mean it stops beading but remains waterproof with compromised breathability (like a gore shell that's worn out) or do they mean it wets through and you start absorbing water inside?

Either way PM the guys who made it and they'll probably tell you to go to Millets if you want performance they made it for the 40 year old ex pseudo casuals who are branch managers at Anglian Windows and only get out of their Land Rover Evques to scream at their ex wives as they pick up their children every other weekend.

Do look nice though

these are nice specs if you can wear brown specs. I tried what I think are the same ones on in the summer

Ended up getting similar ones from the same brand.

Couple things

Number Nine jeans that have a great under-cuff lining (spot the bleeding hearts) - WAIST sz 31-32, $60. I would get these but too small and short.

Dries van Noten black long cardigan - M - $160 . Definitely on trend and I thought someone here might be into it.

http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/mode ... 010038341/

Image


Bohemians pullover parka - $60 - size 0. This seems very small to me, I guess XS-S? Thought the print was really cool and like the colors.

would probably work for a 36-38 chest; this particular piece runs maybe a half size smaller than a traditional uc fit, so where with other 4s I could conceivably size down to a 3 at a 41 chest, this one would be impossible to do that.

Undercover, this collection is the best IMO, love the distorted effect next to the normal on the runway. No bids right now

how do you edit a post on here? anyway, I'd sell it a little cheaper to a c-t user outside of grailed.

No idea what the fit is like (something tells me it's not slim) but If you like taking ebay punts this cashmere longcoat might be worth a one
