What do you call the style of jacket that the rocketeer wheres? Also what is it originally designed to be used for?

    I think double breasted might be what you're looking for

    You know what? I found that site, and initially was all "ugh... cosplay." Then I took a look around it, and was quickly impressed by what I saw. If I was a weaker man, I would be ~$500 poorer, and driving to work in a "Deckard Trench." Because that is fucking badass.

    Seriously, some of the stuff on that site is fucking awesome. I... have bookmarked it. I will put some more thought into it before breaking my wallet on it, but thank you!

    I call it a one off prop. I tend to think of that style (sleeves longer than the waist) as a Cavalry jacket however.

    It's true, if only I could afford to blow $500 on a jacket (and maybe $3000 on an appropriate-looking car) I'd be all over that Mad Max jacket.

    I don't get it. The Kingdom Hearts hoodie just looks like a black hoodie, am I missing something?

    And all the stuff on AS is custom made, so even if you are a huge guy you can call them and give them your measurements and they can work with you to get your stuff made.

    EDIT - I am in Dire need of a new Trench-coat. I wonder If I could talk the wife into letting me get the $500 Blade runner trench. haha.

    The stuff the make is quality to a T. One of my best friends bought the Firefly "Browncoat" and that thing is one of the best made Coats I have ever seen. For some reason they arent listed on their site anymore.

    Ah ha! There it is.

    If I was going to buy one of these it would be the Browncoat or the Blade Runner coat.

    That Brown Coat is hideous. However I've always wanted the jacket that Captain Mal wore, that just looks nothing like it.
