You know they look dope, but you also know you probably won’t wear it very much over the next ten years, right? And I’m sure you can think of ten types of coats you’d rather have at $600+.
So, try to go vintage, and if you can, inherit. I just
stole inherited my pop’s 1963 Lafayette high school varsity. It is pretty much identical to the Gant joint pictured above but comes equipped with the Lafayette letter and seal. And the icing on the cake is that the school suffered from such low performance over the years, it’s no longer operating (such a shame considering Lafayette was able to count Sandy Koufax and Larry King among its notable alumni). Couple that with the fact that I may be one of the only people in the world with this ~50 year old jacket, and you can clearly see the benefit of inheriting something so fresh. Good luck, dude.
