    Best piece they ever produced was the blackwatch coat they produced by Mackintosh. Still rock mine to this day.

    Z, going to echo others and say that heavy wool cdgh coat is amazing. I've been looking for exactly that type of coat with little luck (long, db preferably, heavy wool and not overcoat weight). Nice find.

    A few purchases, mostly sale related.

    SL 17.5mm Coated Denim Jeans - these fit perfectly and look great, a really nice pair of jeans, especially at 30% off - made in japan

    Balmain Grey distressed biker jeans - the quality and details are very nice. Four figurers nice, maybe if they fit. The tagged size is off by at least 1, maybe 2 sizes, they are going back. Plus I can distress my own denim though wear, would prefer a clean pair. -made in Italy

    Surface to Air Apogee V2 Navy Coat - nice coat, quality seems solid, purchased for 40% off of the half off price. My shoulders are a couple inches to wide unfortunately. -made in Lithuania

    Good haul. Both pairs of jeans should be stalwarts.

    Nah I don't regret it at all. It is a very versatile coat especially in California weather. I do wear it as a bit of a beater though, but am confident it can handle rough conditions :) It's come through some pretty hairy situations and weather/stains just seem to slide off of it.

    NdG reminds me of first getting into SWD, when I was taking the train into NYC when their basement store w/ the unhelpful Japanese dude held sales, so I could snatch up W+H hoodies and CPs to sell on B&S, promising him he wouldn't find them on eBay. You know what I'm talkin about.

    Definitely a US brand. Legendary retailer that was one of the first to bridge streetwear and fashion. One of the first collaborate with Trickers, Mackintosh etc,

    Help break Wings+Horns, Geller, Common Projects, Engineered Garments, etc.

    Miss Will, Isa and the rest of those dudes :(

    Some sweet VISVIM wool blend pants arrived, but I'm between sizes. Sad. Probably would be good for Reedo or something.

    Finally pulled the trigger on the jackets I was asking about a while back. Thanks to those who chimed in.

    Went with the VA special edition light coat.
