Autumn Outerwear

Looking for some new outerwear for between seasons and found this Battenwear Parka in Green I really like
>https://www.circleoffriendsshop.com/products/travel-shell-parka-green-x-putty

Problem is it’s 750 hecking Euros and that’s way too much for me right now. I’d be able to do like 400€ max, preferably closer to 300, anything higher gets really hard to justify for me
Does anyone have some recommendations for jackets in a similar style or inspo for the colder windy autumn times? What are you wearing?

      I don’t really like that olive-ish green, a big part of why I like the Battenwear one so much is that powerful dark forest green with the contrasting cream inside.
      Thanks though

      if you can get over the color, it reminds me a lot to basically any army jacket which you can get for lmao 50 bucks

      They have a deep forest green color, too. It may be darker than you are going for, but it is still a dark green.

      these are all just styled to look like 80s parkas, you can find jackets that look like this easily on ebay for under a hundred dollars

      It’s not like it has to be identical to this one.
      I’m mostly just looking for inspo.

      Also this one retailed for under 500€ originally, which is quite a bit more reasonable, it’s only this expensive since it was a special release that hasn’t been available for a while.

    I don’t know if you can have them shipped outside Japan, but maybe you could find one on ebay

      These cunts still make these but just for Japan?
      Why do they have to do us like this?
      >company makes good, classic things for japs
      >same company makes shit-tier things for everyone else.

      Because Japs will pay more? Well why not just put the expensive thing on the English store as well and offer me the choice of paying too much for things?

        Spring
        Summer
        AUTUMN
        Winter

        Autumn is a stupid word to use in English. Spring, summer, fall, and winter are all germanic words. Spring and fall in particular are from “spring of the leaf” and “fall of the leaf”.

        Why the heck would you randomly decide to use the French word, “autumn”? And if you’re going to do that, why the heck would you not change spring to “vernum”?

          I’m sure you never ever use English words that come from from French when a germanic alternative is available. Great post. Need more posts like this to call these people out. Too many anons gaying up this damn website with gay words.

          You’re a midwit. The reason English is the best language in the world is it’s knack for just taking words that already exist in other languages and making it’s own.
          >English doesn’t have a word for xyz
          Oh ya? We do now:
          >tsunami
          >etiquette
          >corral
          >democracy
          The list goes on and on and on.

            loan words aren’t unique to english you hecking stupid. The strength of english is in having both a romance and a germanic wordbase, so we have multiple contextual terms for virtually anything.

    Can I wear a parka if I’m fat? Everything makes me look like cartman from South Park. Will I look like cartman but in a parka in a parka??

      there’s some exceptions to this rule but:
      decent quality & fashionable outerwear starts around that $500-750 mark these days.
      starts at.
      there’s ways to get around it:
      unfashionable high quality outerwear isn’t as expensive. think hiking gear, milsurp, heritage workwear, etc.
      jackets go extremely cheap compared to their tag price at thrift stores, but you missed the best time to pick through them (summer.)
      vintage can be extremely high quality to price ratio if you go with unknown-these-days brands but you have to know your shit to avoid ugly.

      you need to shop in the big&tall section or get bespoke/mtm jackets, your problem is less in your choice of garments and more in the fact you’re wearing the wrong shaped jackets to begin with. the choice of jacket matters too but you have to figure out the sizing and what stores you can/can’t shop at first. get measured and don’t buy cheapshit without measurements on the website.

    Uniqlo make parkas like this because this sort of parka is popular in Japan.

    Did you ever see that video where all those sois go on the motorcycle camping trip to "re-capture their masculinity" or some gay shit while they eat fancy food?

    They’re wearing that kind of parka.

    Thoughts on this Barbour jacket?
    Not sure about the color, maybe Sage is more versatile? Dark Slate looks like it’d be more eye catching though

    • Anonymous says:

      I like their Quilted jackets. Even the "slim" Barbour jackets are still super boxy though. If you are looking for something more form fitting you should steer far, far, away from them.

    • Anonymous says:

      sage is really the classic option, it also affords a very neat spectrum from dark and oily when fully waxed to looking like a dry military fatigue where the wax wears off. never really seen anyone rock a slate one

    ive been wearing a moleskin chore coat from freenote and enjoying it a lot, also finally rewaxed my barbours after like 7 and 5 years of use, so doing those when it rains since they repel water again

    are black jackets too NPC and unfashionable?
    feels like hecking everyone just gets black H&M shit so you just fade in and nobody pays attention to your jacket if you wear black no matter how good and expensive it is

    my grandmother is fixing up her dads Korean War military jacket to give to me
    there’s nothing special on it, no name or patches. Is it stolen valor if I were to wear it?
    I also have his WW2 jacket which does have his name on chest & his rank (E-7) on the sleeves. Would that be stolen valor? I have zero intentions of pretending to be military nigga to get benefits.

    • Anonymous says:

      For the korean war jacket: its not stolen valor if it lacks official military signage or insignias. Tons of people wear surplus. If anyone mouths off to you tell them its your great grandfather’s and that nobody alive today served in the hecking korean war.
      For the WW2 jacket: keep everything original, I just wouldn’t recommend wearing it out and about too much except on like memorial day and such. Its an awesome family heirloom and statement piece.

    Should I get the pile liner for my Beausby? Getting cold soon (0C) but the thing is made of polyester and quite pricey at €140.

    Is Propper an actual milsurp brand? Looking at an M65 from them but it doesn’t have the army sizing and care instruction tags I’m used to in army issued gear.

    • Anonymous says:

      pretty sure they made some contract issued gear in the past and switched to repros later, just like Alpha Ind.
      the m65 you’re looking at is a repro, i’m 90% sure

      • Anonymous says:

        I’ll keep looking then. I’m probably being too picky about the for sure genuine M65s I’m looking at that have minor stains or visual blemishes, could probably clean them easily enough with a bottle of coke and some laundry detergent.

    All this stuff is too preppy/ boomercore for me but I like the jacket in the OP is there anything like this I can buy in the Europe (Italy) without shipping it from Japan?
