I'm super poor but would like to spend my last few coins a spring jacket.

What can I get away with for the least money?

Are bomber/flight jackets still acceptable in Spring 2019?

Harrington?

Military?

thanks

Arket had a blouson sale recently.

I copped both navy and grey - will see their quality and fit tomorrow when I collect.

Bought one after seeing some Japanese lads wearing them:

Those are nice Andre, look neat with the hood tucked away. If you had told me it was beams plus, i would have probably believed you like a mug.

yeah I've been looking at the high-end US milspec liners like Beyond Clothing but that British kit looks pretty cool for the money. Wonder what the quality is like in real? Had an idea for a while to wear a massively oversized liner, want it to be like I'm wearing a bed.

Just found one of these in a Small that didn't fit (thought they'd fit big like most surplus)

£15 posted if anyone wants it.
