Unacceptable: I've Just About Had It...

It's been a long time, and I've been driven from hibernation by numerous atrocities that seem to be getting praise these days. It seems if you add an unnecessary zipper or pair two unlikely materials in an even less likely garb, you're "groundbreaking." Well I say fuck that. Frankly, I am tired of bloggers nowadays (especially the people at magazine blogs like GQ and Esquire) heaping blind praise on ridiculous pieces of clothing. Two examples from a recent trade show (the gentle sirs at GQ neglect to say which, though it's likely either (capsule) or Milan Fashion Week):

On our left we have what seems to be the warm-weather version of the Robot from Lost in Space, while on the right we have a sweater with a zippable bib flap for the sloppy eater. Want a nice warm-weather coat? Grab a pea coat, a top coat, or a normal duffle. If you want a pea coat but you want a little flair, here are two great options: Golden Bear for Unionmade for $425 and Martin Margiela for God knows how much (probably $650-$900).
