Picked up a few things from the winter line. I wanted to talk about the Hospitallers M65 Jacket a little bit.
I've always had a slightly skeptical view on the M65 jackets. When I think about them, I think, "bulky, 'too much,' and unpractical." This is until I tried on the Hospitallers M65. When sized right (I got a small, 5'11" 145 pounds; pale and lanky-- I fit it comfortably and I think I could layer with a button up or even a slim-fit hoodie if I wanted to), it is a very sharp piece without drawing too much attention much thanks to its black color and simple design. I feel because it is designed to be a slim fit, you can wear it as a casual jacket but the heavy outer sheen gives it that rugged edge. As the weather is getting slightly colder here in Southern California, I know that the cotton canvas will keep me warm-- I am very happy with the jacket.
Speaking of the M65 jacket, I have a Praetorian M65 (Spring 09) for sale. Picked it up a while back but it runs a little big on me. I've only tried it on (once) so get at me
