Fashion Poll

Ok.  So I saw this little number in a window at a fancy shop in the lobby of the Captain Cook hotel in Anchorage.  I sorta started crushing on it instantly.

Therefore I am putting a picture of it here, and I’m soliciting opinions from the blogisphere as to it’s F.Q. (fashion quotient) and whether or not I should birthday myself with it.

I rather like the espresso brown version which is the precise version I saw, although the black and the “north sea” color (flinty, steely grey) are both nice as well.

It IS a Patagonia coat, made of recycled polyester for the shell.  And it is down-filled and water repellant.  And it would give me a brown jacket to go with my black leather jacket and my grey prepschool wool toggle coat (which y’all shit on).

So?  Tell me what you think.

P.S.  I do have a brown, faux-fur lined suede coat that I got at Burlington Coat Factory.  It is nice, but the arms don’t fit quite right.

    This jacket makes me think of the Michelin Man…only slimmer.


  2. Gavin says:

    Are horizontal stripes ever good?

  3. Stephen says:

    Get it!! It’s hot!

  4. bstewart23 says:

    Dude, while I’m sure you could rock it, I’m not a fan, either. Unless it’s all you’re wearing, that is.

  5. bstewart23 says:

    …but what do I know? Buying new clothes is like pulling teeth for me, and buying foul-eather-related clothing just gives me Sad Face.

  6. bstewart23 says:

    Crap! Foul-WEATHER-related.

  7. Tony says:

    You didn’t listen to me about the duffle jacket, so you probably won’t listen to me about this either. Get it if you like it.

  8. Doréus says:

    Oh! The Bibendum (Michelin Man) look is back in? Get it at your own risk (this from a Canadian who has lived through that fad a few years ago and hated it).

  9. danny says:

    hm? i say ixnay on the orizontalhay annelschay.

    it even makes skinny bitches look fat. and we can’t have that, now can we?

  10. danny says:

    oops! and i didn’t mean to imply that you weren’t a skinny bitch.

  11. I don’t even want to think about cold weather clothing… It is still August damn it!

    :::Images of the Michelin Man with bicycle tires rolled in shit:::

    No. Don’t think about this any more. Patagonia has gone ’round the bend with this one.

    I actually kinda like the grey prepschool wool toggle coat. Well, better than this anyway.

  13. joe to hell says:

    you would look better in a blue or green

    this looks like poop

  14. Rich says:

    The Fug quotient is high on this one, CB. You could probably pull if off…put it looks like you shouldn’t pull it off the rack.

  15. Ray Ray says:

    How much does it cost?

  16. Jeff says:

    Honestly, it would look like crap on you. You’re too unique to wear something like that.

  17. I wouldn’t so much say Michelin Man as much as an earthworm. It’s got the same ridges and everything…

  18. Mark in DE says:

    Michelin Man after a week on the Adkins diet.

    You can do better.

    Mark 🙂

  19. add-mmm says:

    Eff that noise! These people are haters. It doesn’t matter what they think. But at least you’ll know what they’ll be saying behind your back should you decide to get it.

  20. Chris says:

    get it if you will, but with THIS many people intoning the Michelin Man look, it can’t be folly. I know you like it, but I just can’t see you in it. I keep seeing you, with your arms stuck out stuffed so hard by this jacket, like Maggie Simpson in her snow play wear.

  21. Chris says:

    A Stealth Suit from DUNE! That’s what it keeps reminding me of. Although it’s not hugging you and accentuating your hot ass like it did Kyle MacLachlan. Those stealth suits recycled your bodily waste in the desert…. perhaps this one is processing a lot of ‘brown’ right now…..

  22. Shel says:

    Personally, I don’t care for it… I don’t think it would do anything for you. Sorry, you asked…

  23. Gooster says:

    I am a whore for quilted coats. Just make sure you don’t look like a shit stained Michelin Man if you get it in brown! Besides, that doesn’t even cover your ass. Don’t want chapped cheeks do ya? Save that for the bedroom!

  24. Alex says:

    Two big, fat, bloated thumbs down. On the bright side, espresso brown rocks–keep shopping! (Spoken by the Imelda Marcos of outerwear)

  25. Matt says:

    I couldn’t wear it – but I actually think it’s pretty cool. I can see it looking good on you.

  26. RG says:

    Danger Will Robinson!

  27. Jason says:

    I like these kind of jackets…on other people 😉

  28. Chris says:

    While the dark color does diminish the horizontal stripes, I’d try it on for size. That’s the only way to know for sure. I already know that it would look hideous on me.

  29. ewe says:

    warmth is important but i think it will only look good if you do not have a belly.

  30. Ricky Sweet says:

    Hell, can’t you make up you’re own mind?
