Lusting After: Woolrich Woolen Mills Carlsbad Jacket

 
[Pictured: Woolrich Woolen Mills Carlsbad jacket available for $450-$550 here and here.]

If you don't think this jacket is boss I'm not sure if we can be friends anymore. Seriously.  The Carlsbad jacket isn't just the key piece of Daiki Suzuki's WWM S/S 2010 collection, but my most coveted item of the upcoming season as a whole - that's how much I am digging it.  

I like to think that my wardrobe is pretty diverse as far as different styles go, but when it comes warm weather everything shifts, at least to some degree, towards vintage surf and skate culture.  The entire WWM S/S 2010 collection is based around what a vintage surfer (think 50's, 60's, 70's) would wear when he wasn't hitting the waves and the Carlsbad jacket is the epitome of this.  It specifically is "inspired by vintage outdoor jackets of the 1960’s" and "the fabric is a water resistant durable cotton poly poplin that was considered the best fabric for the outdoors."  It's a highly technical piece, much like all of Daiki's designs, but the details are what truly won me over.  The leather toggles, contrasting shoulder yolks, hood, etc. really set this jacket off and, quite frankly, justify that major buzzkill of a price tag.  

Of the two colorways I'm partial to the beige, but you can't really go wrong with either.  It merely comes down to how much contrasting you want to go with and since the jacket is pretty understated as it is, I'd prefer to rock the more "startling" of the two.  But honestly, if I had my druthers, I'd cop both like it aint no thang.

  1. If the length of this jacket was a bit longer, it'd be perfect.

  4. I totally agree, although the blue is a bit more tempting than the beige. Hopefully we'll all see this on Gilt in a few months.
