Got this a few weeks ago but only borrowed a camera yesterday so I might do a few posts.
The first thing that impressed me with the UU parka is the construction and quality of it as it comes with a removable lining thats really warm and I have used it under a few other jackets on some occasions. There are a few details that set it apart from the usual boring fishtail parkas from alpha/schott etc like the corduroy panels on the cuffs and the pockets and the flash of color on the fabric next to the zips.
The hood is really massive but it doesn’t have any lining so its actually not that warm but the removable fur collar does help in warmth. But my main complaint would be that the buttons next to the zips serve no purpose and kind of takes away from the “utility” of the parka.
The material is relatively waterproof but definitely nothing compared to a real technical parka but I don’t think you should be buying this if you want are going for that techninja vibe. Overall its really good even at full retail and even better if you get it at sale price.
Just got these Raf Simons shoes which happened to be the last pair of 42s on the Gilt sale and I’m very happy with them. I was tempted to get the goldchainz version but I’ve been on the hunt for some good dress shoes for a while. I was worried about the sizing since there are a few people who say they fit TTS or bigger but I went with CP sizing and they fit perfectly. The leather is super smooth and the shape is perfect.
On another note, will be taking fit pics in the near future.
Also received these. Unlike my first reaction to the easy pants. I was pretty happy with the material of these. Sure they’re no drkshdw or 13.5-21oz selvage/selvedge denim but that’s not the point. The fit is great and much better than cheap mondays/nudies etc. I usually wear some waxed drksdhws but wanted to have the choice to wax on wax off and the zip pocket on these sure is a game changer lol. I think I mentioned before but for $60 you really can’t complain. IMO if you aren’t going for the authentic faded experience or the high fashion J-shaped jeans, these are great if you’re looking for that something to go with everything in your closet.
