The Mishka Holiday 2011 Jacket Preview
What clothing purchase is more exciting than that of a new jacket? Sure, it may cost more than the pieces you’re normally buying, but there’s never anything but a sense that you are getting your money’s worth. It appeals to one of our baser instincts. It will get cold, and yet we must stay warm. The simple fact that you can bring your style to the next level while doing it is a delectable icing on the satisfaction cake.
This year we’ve got a collection of jackets that ethers the competition. If you’re in the northeast, where the nights get bitter and any color is allowed as long as it’s black, then the Forcefield Toggle Coat is for you. All black with leather accents, sherpa lining and a prodigious hood, the Forcefield is a piece you can buy and cherish for years. Or maybe you’re more a Predator Utility Jacket kinda guy. Active. Utilitarian. Enamored with pockets. This canvas shelled beauty is for you. Then there’s my personal favorite, the Sniper Bomber. Classic bomber cut with a classic camo print, and a black sherpa lining to boot! Shove your hands in those front pockets and hunker down against the winter while looking like a boss. Jacket weather. Music to my ears.
