Just bought a picrelated similar Parka for Winter this year. What should I wear it with?
Parka inspo thread/general winter jackets thread
/fa/ really is a shit place. I mean look at this the same 3 fucking parkas are posted all the time. No one has any personal taste here and the give mind is really a thing. I'm not trying to sound elitist or anything because I fell for the only but black and white stuff too. But seriously find your own style don't just fit the mold.
>100% thick wool
Should I? My only concern is that it would fit pretty poorly since it's their more spacious fit and Filson is pretty dadcore, especially in sizing terms, but I'm torn
I'm not talking shit about a kind of clothing that would be ridiculous. It's the fact that the ILU, CA, and AI are posted in every one of these threads. It's the fact that people need inspired for a black Parka. Find different parkas, find different materials there are so many ridiculously cool materials for clothing out there. Maybe I'm just being an ass but it's just kind of sad to see people thinking they have to buy something because /fa/ told them to.
I bought a Parka because I wanted one. Not because they're /fa/. I've seen plenty of people say they're shit on /fa/. There's an inspo thread because people want to know what other things they can wear it with. Not because they need to know how to make it /fa/.
Unfortunately the Double Mackinaw is the Alaska fit only, but I've read about how people have had theirs for decades without a single flaw, and that this one in particular is one of their most durable and warmest in their line-up. Can you provide me with more insight?
Besides AI none of those parkas hold any function and don't fit any better. People on /fa/ dress quite differently from many other fashion boards. Many other boards dress fashionably but still functionally while /fa/ dresses almost purely for Aesthetics. So no they are not better they look nice and they are cheap that's why so many people talk about them, despite popular belief most of /fa/ is poor af.
I've wanted to buy a navy duffle/toggle coat to use as a winter coat for a while, would either of these be a good choice?
What kind of jackets do you guys like seeing on girls anyway?
I was talking about Techwear as a whole not just what /fa/ likes you seriously are brainwashed b. Most high-end techwear brands comparable in price to people like Rick Raf and Ann D, are a beautiful balance of function and aesthetics. Look at things like Veilance or ACR. They are beautifully made but will keep you warm and dry in the rain for hours.
There was one on Asos too but the length is kind of short, like a peacoat. I think the long duffles would look better on a guy.
/fa/ opionin on this?
It's funny when anons toss around these embarassingly banal platitudes as if they've found some revealing new insight
>Anon A posts parka thread
>Anon B sees parka thread, saves some links/images
>Anon B posts parka thread
>Anon C sees parka thread, saves some links/images
However, Anon C has only seen B's thread, so all of the "repost" garbage is new to him.
Maybe you make it a point to scan every thread you scroll past and thus have seen the constant reposts, but the vast majority of /fa/ are casuals and everything is new and fresh to them
At that price range you won't get anything that will stay water resistant for a long time. Like it will start to get damp after like 20 minutes exposed to rain or snow. If you want something the completely flecks off water and does it for a while you'll need to spend a little more money. Keeping that in mind their is a Veilance jacket on sale right now that basically is everything you wanted but it's around $500
Anyone know w2c some parkas or jackets with designs like this?
Anything that has a Raf sort of vibe to it.
Not sure if I'd cop this, it seems nice but I'd prefer black with designs.
should i cop this loud as fuck coat?
pls think for me fah

You're supposed to layer.
Anyone got an opinion on Stone Island in general? Quality?
How about this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6euVtxALs0I
Would you wear pic related?
It's some techy glass layer shit on it.
Maybe too much. Perhaps if you were some kind of flashy south korean or jap?
I have heard good things.
I made mention to someone that I was looking for a traditional sorta mac or 3/4 trench and someone referred me to Stone Island. Strange, since their stuff seems to be very modern, techy stuff and changes each season.
>I would still wait for a sale though.
Seems that way,
I can't really bring myself to buy something over a grand (or more) that's flashy that I can't see myself using in the next decade.
Fuck, I really want to know this /fa/ reference. Please tell me, is it the same thing as "Herp derp rick owens so gud"
