Bomber Jacket

edited December 2009 in Social Entropy++
Allright guys so pretty simple question. I want a coat for winter, specifically I want this coat:

MA-1%20Flight%20Jacket-Sage%20Green.jpg
http://www.shopalphaindustries.com/Alpha/mens/products.php?item=1

Does anybody have any personal experience with it to help persuade/dissuade me on the matter ? any other advice on nylon bomber jackets, like what/where to buy would also be welcome, I'm in the seattle area if that helps.

Also if the way it looks isn't exactly your cup of tea that's great for you but I like it, so if you want to bash it I guess I cant stop you but it wont really affect the way I see it.

Edit: oh crap i thought i was in help and advise, if someone could see it in the doodness of their hearts to either move or delete this i would be most grateful.

    I also doubt the fashion thread would touch this jacket with a ten foot pole, they have far better taste than that.

    They might wear it ironically, or ironically ironically.

    There's an Army/Navy surplus store just north of Pike Place Market, I wanna say on Western. But if you just keep going north from the park at the north end, you can't miss it.

    cant just rock the suit bro, gotta have the sweet beard and weirdly bloated smirk to go along with

    for a guy who talked so much about fashion and its importance and how to wear clothes and finding the right fit

    the picture of himself in that one suit is terrible, and not even only because of the look on his face

    but because the suit he is wearing DOES NOT FIT HIM and is in fact a terrible look
