this from norse projects is mine

but they don't make it any more and it is sort of dying via backpack wear after ~1yr

woolrich do a few and they are cheap (and currently mostly out of stock)

Love these. Total art teacher-wear, hides my body, has pockets, can turn the collars up in a pinch. Best item ever along with long-line V-neck cardigans.

excellent for air travel!

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:26 (nine years ago) link

At least one of my 3-season coats is actually one of these. Very tailored, 4 front pockets, one with flap. I want an identical one that's lined, could keep it another 20 years.

i kind of like this, although it is a bit more jackety than i am looking for

nice!

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:31 (nine years ago) link

that is the cut i am looking for

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:31 (nine years ago) link

Let's buy the same jacket.

grossly incorrect register (in orbit), Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:31 (nine years ago) link

Then I'll find the perfect winter oxfords (to replace my half-linen ones I'm currently stretching past their fall expiration date) and we'll both look just like max.

grossly incorrect register (in orbit), Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:32 (nine years ago) link

i got mine via a tip from max iirc

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:33 (nine years ago) link

i even had it repaired in fort greene, which i think means i became max

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:36 (nine years ago) link

Whoah idk what happened to llbean models but ws each and every shirted one.

grossly incorrect register (in orbit), Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:38 (nine years ago) link

They're mostly the same guy so that's not completely outrageous.

grossly incorrect register (in orbit), Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:38 (nine years ago) link

i am seriously tempted by that ridiculous houndstooth jacket but i am not sure i can pull it off

i would pay cash money for it right now if it came in like navy or green or charcoal or something sane

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:39 (nine years ago) link

will probably just get a filson in navy (being boring)

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:40 (nine years ago) link

and i will no doubt rue the lack of hip pockets

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:40 (nine years ago) link

I require hand-area pockets. Prefer full-on patch pockets to those diagonal slashed ones but require SOMETHING.

grossly incorrect register (in orbit), Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:41 (nine years ago) link

otm

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:44 (nine years ago) link

the norse projects hip pockets are exactly 1 kindle in size

caek, Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:44 (nine years ago) link

I just asked for the houndstooth one for Christmas since I can't find anyone stocking the Corcoran field boots that I actually need.

Goal until spring: dress like a paramilitary lumberjack.

grossly incorrect register (in orbit), Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:46 (nine years ago) link

these usually seem to be more expensive than any shirt OR jacket I would buy, yet not as warm as an actual jacket

drunk 'n' white's elements of style (Hurting 2), Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:46 (nine years ago) link

Most winter coats are way too warm for me in the body, I just need sleeves and neck/ears to be covered.

grossly incorrect register (in orbit), Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:49 (nine years ago) link

I ADORE the look of fitted formal coats on men and women both but I give up on wearing them--I beat the shit out of 'em carrying shoulder bags and swinging my arms and sweating in them, and I am ALWAYS sweating if I have to walk more than a couple of blocks. Ideally would want a winter coat with zipper vents under the arms and in the middle of the back. Will settle for houndstooth.

grossly incorrect register (in orbit), Thursday, 29 November 2012 16:51 (nine years ago) link

I had a beautiful cross between a striped button down and a jeans jacket presumably from the mid 60s. I boughty it around '85 and lost it on my interail trip. Shame always wanted another one like it but have never to my kknowledge seen one.

Stevolende, Friday, 30 November 2012 08:58 (nine years ago) link

I emailed my mom that houndstooth jkt for my Christmas list and she had just bought that exact one...for my brother. Now she's getting us the same thing.

grossly incorrect register (in orbit), Saturday, 1 December 2012 21:26 (nine years ago) link

Would really like to find out more about that button down collar jacket thing I had in the mid 80s. I got around to googling it over the week but didn't have any luck. Looked like it came out of a '66 mod/freakbeat photoshoot. So I wonder if there were many of them made or if it was a short-term fad out of Carnaby street, Lord John or something.

caek, Sunday, 2 December 2012 16:34 (nine years ago) link

Welllllll I was wearing my no-brand grey wool shirt jacket on Saturday night and the ER doctors cut if off me, so Christmas will be just in time.

glad you're doing ok

the late great, Monday, 3 December 2012 18:22 (nine years ago) link

otm. sorry your shirt jacket bore the brunt!

caek, Tuesday, 4 December 2012 17:18 (nine years ago) link

i kinda prefer sweater jackets to shirt jackets cuz i find them warmer and idk cozier i guess, i like the extra bulk of a sweater but i do have one shirt jacket:

http://www.selectism.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/wings-horns-melton-wool-shirt-00.jpg

that i like a fair bit

f (Lamp), Tuesday, 4 December 2012 17:26 (nine years ago) link

yeah i got a navy one like that by woolrich wm

the late great, Tuesday, 4 December 2012 17:42 (nine years ago) link

CPO or cruiser jacket, right?

the late great, Tuesday, 4 December 2012 17:42 (nine years ago) link

i think the cruiser coat is a little longer and has more pockets. thats supposed to be a 'hunting shirt' iirc.

i have been eyeing up the wwm flight jackets in blue tho. i kinda like the trend of making really heavy fitted blazer jackets like that, theres a nice boo two button tweed blazer jacket thats (unsurprisingly) steeply marked-down in my size that i want/have on my mental xmas wish list

f (Lamp), Wednesday, 5 December 2012 00:22 (nine years ago) link

I have been into things that are definitely shirt-jackety of late

although I don't think that they integrate well with my other jacket interest that I discovered a couple years ago: the napoleon pocket

mh, Wednesday, 5 December 2012 16:52 (nine years ago) link

shirt jackets still on my mind.

caek, Monday, 10 December 2012 06:32 (nine years ago) link

two months pass...

but they don't make it any more and it is sort of dying via backpack wear after ~1yr

ha i started dating a fashion designer and she has lined it with moleskin and it is good for another 2+ yrs i think.

shirt jackets are good. i have a corduroy one that i wear in the fall and it makes me feel very rugged.

i ponder these sometimes but they all look somewhat contrived on me

r|t|c, Thursday, 11 July 2013 23:25 (eight years ago) link

I've realized I require hip/side pockets in a shacket. I have one with no pockets and it's really disorienting.

Ima Gardener (in orbit), Friday, 1 October 2021 15:01 (seven months ago) link

Mmm good point.

Tracer Hand, Friday, 1 October 2021 15:04 (seven months ago) link

yeah otm

lag∞n, Friday, 1 October 2021 15:10 (seven months ago) link

It has chest pockets, but they're not very good for putting your hands in.

Ima Gardener (in orbit), Friday, 1 October 2021 15:13 (seven months ago) link

i own a shirt jacket without hand pockets and every time i wear it rediscover the idea of having a tailor put hand pockets in it

lag∞n, Friday, 1 October 2021 15:34 (seven months ago) link

tho the shirt jacket depicted on aigle dot com is way on the shirt end of the shirt jacket spectrum so maybe you could wear it more like a shirt and it wouldnt be a problem

lag∞n, Friday, 1 October 2021 15:36 (seven months ago) link

yeah. i ended up there because i wanted to show you guys an aigle SHACKET yes i said it again lag∞n that i actually have, which is really one of my most treasured things now. it's got the side pockets and it's slightly quilted. god it's the best. the only slight downside is that the quilting can feel a little COLD on bare arms if you're wearing it that way but i just steel myself for it because i know it'll pass in about half a minute.

Tracer Hand, Friday, 1 October 2021 16:25 (seven months ago) link

please show us the shacket

lag∞n, Friday, 1 October 2021 16:30 (seven months ago) link

well i can't find a picture of it anywhere

Tracer Hand, Friday, 1 October 2021 16:31 (seven months ago) link

ok i'll put the damn thing on

Tracer Hand, Friday, 1 October 2021 16:41 (seven months ago) link

but thank u

Tracer Hand, Friday, 1 October 2021 16:41 (seven months ago) link

lol, is having the pockets on side seam comfortable, i ask in service of my hypothetical shirt jacket alteration

lag∞n, Friday, 1 October 2021 16:42 (seven months ago) link

nice socks too tracer. you stylin

I've long pondered whether I could pull off a Wax London overshirt

https://waxlondon.com/collections/overshirts

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Friday, 1 October 2021 16:47 (seven months ago) link

thanks! the socks were a christmas present - my parents know i love socks - with a ridiculously cute conceit - they come in a pack of two, one adult size and one kid size for your kid awwwww.

the side seam pockets are very comfortable, in fact i forget they're there. i don't usually like to keep big stuff in there for very long but it's extremely handy in, say, sniffle season

xpost

Tracer Hand, Friday, 1 October 2021 16:48 (seven months ago) link

it just seems like kind of far to reach back to put your hands in, tho i know its not a totally uncommon placement

lag∞n, Friday, 1 October 2021 16:52 (seven months ago) link

yeah i guess you just get used to it. there is a stealth element that is not unpleasing

Tracer Hand, Friday, 1 October 2021 16:57 (seven months ago) link

I like a slashed diagonal welted pocket myself but I acknowledge I'm particular. Or large patch pockets on the front, but that has something of an "art teacher/olde worlde craftperson" vibe. Which I'm also fine with.

Ima Gardener (in orbit), Friday, 1 October 2021 16:59 (seven months ago) link

yeah i would prefer having some sort of further forward than the seam pocket were i to get my jacket altered, which im almost certainly not going to lol, but pockets on the seams seems like the easiest operation considering the jacket is all one fabric and theres not more of it

lag∞n, Friday, 1 October 2021 17:05 (seven months ago) link

its a nice jacket but its unlined wool which is scratchy also i own many light jackets sweatshirts fleeces and various things to keep me warm in the cold but not that cold weather

lag∞n, Friday, 1 October 2021 17:07 (seven months ago) link

a few years ago my wife got me a stitchfix gift card thing as a birthday present. it was an interesting experience having clothes show up at my doorstep. they mostly look really good, but some of them revealed themselves to be shoddy quality over time (jeans esp). but i did get this nift shacket:

love it, and this is the perfect season. wearing it almost daily

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 1 October 2021 17:12 (seven months ago) link

that looks pretty sweet. i guess those are the pockets of your dreams cr?m?

Tracer Hand, Friday, 1 October 2021 17:21 (seven months ago) link

That's sooo good. And Tracer, yours too! Top shacket marks for secured top pockets, open side pockets for standing around with your hands in.

Ima Gardener (in orbit), Friday, 1 October 2021 17:24 (seven months ago) link

thanks! the socks were a christmas present - my parents know i love socks - with a ridiculously cute conceit - they come in a pack of two, one adult size and one kid size for your kid awwwww.


Tell me where did you get these sockss?

𝔠𝔞𝔢𝔨 (caek), Friday, 1 October 2021 17:47 (seven months ago) link

from my parents lol

trying quite hard to remember the brand.. hmm

Tracer Hand, Friday, 1 October 2021 17:52 (seven months ago) link

yeah great pockets for hands. there has been a guitar pick in one of the chest pockets for like the last two years and i always forget it's there. when i notice it it makes the shacket feel that much cooler

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 1 October 2021 18:18 (seven months ago) link

nice pockets for sure

lag∞n, Friday, 1 October 2021 19:53 (seven months ago) link

just checking in. wearing a shirt as a jacket today.

(admittedly not a shirt jacket.)

Timely. Thinking about overshirts & shackets today.

Looking at the Wax Whiting, as mentioned by Moodles upthread:

https://waxlondon.com/products/whiting-overshirt-marine-beatnik

(no handpockets so feels slightly off-thread, though I wear heavy shirts as jackets plenty)

or a Form&thread atelier in ink, a purer shacket

I'm very close to going in on the Navy/Grey Plaid one, was literally just checking these out again

Would love this Todd Snyder chore coat.

... (Eazy), Saturday, 13 November 2021 02:38 (six months ago) link

I bought three fairly cheap ones from TK Maxx in blue, brown and white. Wear them all the time, sometimes with a roll neck sweater underneath although I'd like to find a better one than the one I already have

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Sunday, 14 November 2021 23:45 (six months ago) link

Currently wearing something very similar to that Todd Snyder chore coat that cost £15 from Uniqlo.

currently wearing a Balenciaga “garbage shovelling shirt” in tulle

Tracer Hand, Tuesday, 16 November 2021 12:22 (six months ago) link

Haha yeah it does make me feel a bit sick in my mouth when I see a £350 shacket described as a "chore jacket" or whatever

Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Tuesday, 16 November 2021 12:55 (six months ago) link

My look for the winter. My hand is in the way but I'm wearing a cheap H&M roll neck which I plan to upgrade at some point to a nicer fit and colour

Fizzles, Friday, 11 March 2022 19:38 (two months ago) link

What one

woof, Saturday, 12 March 2022 11:27 (two months ago) link

I had this great garment I bought in the 2nd hand clothing shop in Clapham that was like a button down shirt at the collar and had a bottom that seemed a lot more like a jeans jacket, I don't think I've ever seen another like it. Have thought of trying to create something more like it. Think it was pretty light but that bottom was weird for a shirt. Including the side jacket waist adjustment tabs you get on the back of jeans jackets and a waist band strip so I don't think it would tuck into trousers easily. Fabric a lot more shirtish than external jacket .

Unfortunately it was in a bag that I lost while interailing in mid 85. So can't check to see if it had labels or anything, whether it was a mass made thing or more bespoke or smaller boutique level numbers of production.
