How is that a duffel coat?
Duffel coat - Melton wool, thigh length, hood, wooden toggles.
That has none of the above = not a duffel coat!

Yes, it's the weirdest duffel coat I've seen; more of a seriously flawed car coat.

I imagine one might wear it over Leiderhosen (and not in a good way).

You've read my mind, Trots. That and and a Tyrolean hat and voilà! the perfect Alps-mod look.

Liking the looks (especially the colour) of this The Kooples' trucker suede jacket. But with a 645 € price tag, I think I'll stick to my Levis' one.

Saw these polo shirts in H & M yesterday and thought they looked interesting. They're pique but the white hoops are that sort of tacky stuff you see on workwear and when you touch you go urgh! If the white was normal pique Id've bought one straight away, no worries

Well, this one's kind of an oddity but one I'd wear happily next winter if not for the forbiding price tag (800 + €). It's a collab between Junya Watanabe and Levi's, no less than a tweed trucker jacket!

Waiting for the Harris Tweed version in a nice check

I suspect you may have been joking with your suggestion  ;)  but It has made me wonder what such a jacket would look like. Is there someone out there willing to go a bit off track with such a classic design? I could see myself wanting one with vertical stripes.

Why not? The trucker jacket is so basic a design that it could work with some risky patterns. Anyway tbh I think it looks better with a plain colour scheme.
