    Old Navy Shacket: it's Really Good!

    Dappered Friends,

    I picked this up for 25 bucks the other day and felt compelled to post about it because I think it's effin' brilliant. Ideal for some autumnal layers. More pockets than even MacgGyver could fill (original or contemporary versions). The twill is nice and soft and it's a perfect weight. Love the "panther" color, and what man doesn't want to wear panther, right? Go buy it. And let's all look the same ... For real, though, I've had mixed luck with Old Navy, but this thing is great and I can see it holding up for a good length of time.

    Cheers,

    The Scotsman in Brooklyn

    Maybe I will try one but I grew up in the 90s and it just gives me flashbacks to when everyone looked like this...

    I tried on in store (and it is quite nice for the price). I’m a 36s (JCF) or 38s (Suitsupply Lazio) and the medium was too big. Didn’t fit in the shoulders and a bit too baggy through the chest, over a Gustin Henley. They didn’t have a small in stock, but I nearly ordered one on-line without hesitation (and still might).

    I grew up in the 90s as well AND in Seattle. Suffice to say that my shackets are NOT plaid.

    I suggest you brace yourself because that look is coming back.

    This was pretty much my daily uniform from 1989-1994. Finished off with a pair of vintage, Vietnam era combat boots that I wore until the soles were balsa thin. Ah, memories.

    Yeah @BillN and I were pretty much in the same boat. Dress in a suit? Leather dress shoes? Never in a million years. Well maybe not a million years. How about 20?

    I didn't have the long hair or the Stooges concert tee but that was pretty much my uniform in that era too. I wore the Timberland work boot as opposed to the combat boot, or sneakers in the summer. I swear I even wore flannel with shorts on warm spring days.
