Mentioned the words "waxed cotton" to my mum and she showed me this Barbour waterproof coat we had at the back of the cupboard. It fits me pretty well and she said I could have it if I wanted.

On its own I like it a lot but I'm not sure what to pair it with, outfits don't spring to mind as easily as with wool coats, plus whenever I think of Barbour I think of country gentlemen, which I don't dress like. If anyone has any ideas as far as shirts and trews go that'd be cool.

Might end up wearing this to a festival soon, see if Barbour really is tuffenuff.

@sagc I get you with the sneakers thing. This was just what I was wearing at the time so there's not much cohesion but pairing it with sneaks was a consideration.

The collar can be fastened into a sort of funnel neck deal

A few weeks ago I was looking for winter coats and drooling over the

coat seen here but obviously it was wayyyy too expensive and just something to look at rather than purchase. Acne had some intriguing coats as well but still, they were pretty $$$. I remembered that in the front closet there was a wool jacket so I went to give it a try on. All herringbone wool with a beautiful and removable flannel liner. I had no idea if it'd fit or not so I popped it on and looked in the mirror. Turns out it fit just how I wanted it to- not fitted with drape and hitting right below the knees. The coat reminds me very much so of the SLP one that I love but, obviously doesn't have the same intricate texture.

Making it even more interesting, my mother told me it used to belong to my grandfather when she was a kid and then she wore it when she was pregnant with me. I think the fact that I now get to wear a jacket that I not only love, but has a history to it is wonderful.

Here's the coat:

do you mean you specifically dislike the brand or you just aren't as into it as others?

Both. It's just pretty boring clothes that I find tragically unexciting both in person and in outfits. Which is fine but not for that money. Generally I'm not very keen on these mid-range brands though - they do well and fill a popular spot in the market but don't really appeal to me.

OL is going properly weird lately though, at least in the lookbooks. But they still need to shake that "Uniqlo for rich people" jizz which they've unfortunately developed. Not sure if its come from the pieces or the people buying it though? They've always had some fun stuff (normally the stuff that gets slated the most on FUK) which obviously doesn't get picked up by many stores or people.

Not doing themselves any favours with the contents of their estore either though, it's all slightly dull button-down shirts for €100-200, zippered jackets, expensive t-shirts that are slightly different from normal t-shirts and unimaginative knitwear. A couple of wacky printed fabrics thrown in and bob's your uncle. It's not like you can hate any of it and there are definitely individually decent pieces but as a brand they just seem so middle-of-the-road and inoffensive.

Take that coat above for instance. It's a nice coat because that fabric is ace but the cut of the coat itself is pretty much what I think of when i think of our legacy. The lapels are low notch (interesting/fun choice that I love) but they haven't gone full-throttle and made them wide or imposing in any way. The lapels are slightly rounded (not enough for that to be a Thing) which also neuters them a bit. Instead of creating an awesome retro style with it (which would be killer with that fabric) they've turned it into a #subtledetail that feels half-baked.

i get what you're saying about OL and the one piece I own definitely falls into the good fabric/nice piece but not crazy interesting category, but that coat would suck so hard with really wide lapels

I quite enjoy OL's tendency for fairly standard cut clothing with cool fabrics / pretty prints, I'm finding that my preference is to have any visual interest in my outfits be in that form rather than crazy construction and fits. I also see what people are saying with their basic pieces but I see them as a neutral that's needed to balance out their crazier garms in look books and such.

I don't really get the uniqlo for rich people thing. Sure a lot of their stuff can be considered "basic" but you say that as if that isn't exactly what they're going for.

Surely that could also be said of APC and people don't really slate them for it.

They do slate them for it, though GAP for rich people is a better comparison probably

I lump all of those mid-range nice-but-slightly-pricey-and-slightly-boring-basics brands into the same pile. They're completely 100% fine and do what they do. They have a market.

Let's get back to coats yeah

I think it's the pieces people that are buying. If all anybody buys is the 50's sweat than you don't see many people in the floral embroidered magenta top coat, or talking about sizing for the floral embroidered magenta top coat. Just more people looking for a gray sweatshirt. And then their dot patchwork shirts all end up in the sale rack.

Likewise, I'm sure many people are only interested in the navy or khaki EG Baker, and could care less about workshirts, 7-pocket fatigues, or herringbone bermuda shorts, but we look past their popular pieces to their lookbooks and see that the brand vision is much more. Though frankly this comparison isn't amazing, because the OL ss14 lookbook is much more art, and features a lot of shots of just guys in blue shirts. I guess they still have a ways to go.

A n y w a y s

I never did find this coat from Undercoverism FW14. I thought the colorblock was super cool.
