to be honest with you i'd go with the well tailored traditional English jacket that fits well, easily...the Comme jacket is from the Shirt line which I was never too impressed with, and the blazer just seems like a regular cotton corduroy blazer, doesn't stand out too much aside from the tie-dye effect which looks kinda cool and might be fun to wear out for a few spins, but I think a well tailored traditional jacket is more timeless. I guess it comes down to whether you're looking for something more casual or dressy...

I'll skip the shirt, then, if it's too loud.

I'm not sure about the jacke, PoC.

Ionn, I like the trench and the shirt, but not really the pants. But you already bought it, so it's ok, lol.

Well... Thats true... Sometimes it is a fine line which thread to put it in... The buttons on the leather jacket is actually very weak, it is stitched with another button holding it on the other side. It is also very hard to button up, but i guess the trench looks better when it is open...

I love this trench coat... and I was told that it was limited. Now I probably have a complete collection of CCP.. so terrible of me :p to waste money like this...

Yeah.. I think CCP don't have very strong grasp of the pants in his collection, but neverthe less I think it is unique that it has the flat, weird stitching and overlock stitiching... but all CCP pieces are expensive... which I don't understand... sometimes not even good value for money...

Strangely enough, I fall in love with CCP's pants the most!

I am not saying that the pants are not spectacular. I am saying it is the weakest part of CCPs design I feel. But everyones opinion is different I guess. Plus the pants are really expensive as you know ... so.. sometimes I question the value of it, as much as I really love the pants...

Helena - not sure about the top - too much volume at the bottom I think.

Faust the shirt it very very you I think, so on that basis yay.

Ion - good purchases, although that must have seriously seriously cost you a lot of money!! The jackets are certainly limited. L'Eclairuer told me that he make them to order only now and that he makes a loss on them (although I simply son't beleive that (the last bit)!) Although I wouldn't wear that stuff I think the black trousers go really well with the boots.

Thanks Johnny, yes they cause A LOT of damages to my bank account. oh well.. I can basically declare myself as Fashion insane and I need to see a shrink on this.

As for the Jacket.. yeah it cost me an arm and leg for it... I think that CCP is probably making a loss on them, but NOT e'clairuer... they are making a huge profit out of it... I think one way for CCP to break even is that he has the same cut for the long jacket but in different material, so I guess he is able to break even on it..

As for the pants, yeah.. now I have the jacket, shirt,pants, and boots, now I am all set for at least a year.. BUT BUT.. that's just 2 shirt and 2 pants for the whole year Talk about value for money.
