I like the sapper more tan the bedale if you go barbour, and I think I'd go orvis more than the ll bean field jacket, from the website it looks really boxy

Long-time Veeky Forumsgs might remember me trying to sell this coat. I still have it and it's still for sale.
Unworn except for two times I tried it on.

More of a case of low agency than anything else. I've never bothered putting it up on eBay, grailed etc. Pretty sure you can take the belt off.

yeah but then there are just random belt loops

that's totally unacceptable

When you look up "Barbour Ursula" one of the results is an archived Veeky Forums post of mine.

I don't like it. I prefer other types of jackets generally and there are better looking field jackets for less on grailed.

Classic and practical, but also immensely varied in quality (design and fabrication) and sorely due for an update.

Orvis and LL Bean are both fine, but the LL Bean Field Coat is more of a chore coat than a field jacket. The Orvis you posted has weird lines and I strongly dislike high set handwarmer pockets.

I agree with you but that isn't an unusual thing: lot of coats like that for a long time.

I like them, but mostly because I love Barbour.

green

the brown looks like it's full on corduroy which is gross but green would still be better

Veeky Forums for as long as I've known it has been too-skinny kids into too-expensive sneakers and semi-negroid fashion. Plus aspirational Rick.

Barbour small's arms are probably too short for you unless you're 5'9, though.

This board used to be into workwear and more traditional clothes, but then KTT invaded and every thread became about either Kanye or sneakers. This time also saw the advent of the term "dadcore", which basically referred to anything that wasn't streetwear. The board has been going downhill ever since.

I was thinking about buying an m65 jacket from here since its cheaper than alpha industries has anyone bought from these guys before?

I think they're legit.

It's not that I'm worried it's a scam I'm worried because I'm not sure how to quality is compared to alpha and other brands

I've thought about purchasing a used coat but it seems a little disrespectful to wear a coat that a soldier actually used

That sounds really nice actually. All of these sneaker and "joggers" threads disgust me.

but then KTT invaded
