A cheaper alternative to the usual suspects, not sure if that's a good thing though…

If you want a hiking boot, then there's nothing wrong with them. Personally, I think they look dumpy and ugly, but I don't like hiking boots, Visvim, OG or otherwise.

stick with fracap imo, kins lack the details that make a hiking boot. probably down to the welt being somewhat hidden, the lack of stitch around the ankle. black hardware (as opposed to brass on fracap) doesn't do much for me either.

pair of the same as your post but by fracap on sale in couple sizes here:

couldn't agree more, I found a few pairs of the Kins for £30 which is the only reason tempting me.

I like those French workers' jackets a few people have posted on here but also a big fan of LVC, so thinking of this as a nice mix:

More pics here (I wouldn't be paying this much of course Eye-wink

@ tessier
the black/burgundy one!


received my kooples bomber today.
…quality is oustanding. lovin the fit when the jacket is open / not sure when it's closed.
Fuzzy from here warned me…the jacket is padded from the inside.
i love the fit with just a t- under it, with a shirt/sweater it's tight but still okay. shirt layered with a sweater is unwearable.
what do u think? …size up? keep it? return it?

Would sag to much on the shoulders if you'd size up. Jacket does look weird done up though.

I think the next size up will be too big but that does look a little small on you, especially worn with quite a long shirt

Looks absolutely fine, wearing longer shirts with bombers like that can look strange sometimes when zipped up. If its leather it will give and mould more to your shape.
