Outerwear overload? Probably. Sorry folks, but Orvis dropped their new F/W outerwear and I couldn’t help but put it up here. In past seasons it helped to be over 5’10 and athletic when it came to Orvis gear but this year much of the outerwear is offered in smalls.
They have a fair amount of Barbour in models that the states would not be familiar with; definitely a plus. They’ve also got a bunch of new leather stuff that verges on “boot-cut guy style”, so tread lightly. They’ve still got the classics there but they have so many different options, ranging from the absurd to practical, it probably doesn’t hurt to look around.
Dakota Waxed Cotton A-2 Flight Jacket - Classic Bomber. There's nothing wrong with waxed cotton.
Saddlemen's Trench Coat - It's got a weird beltless trench coat thing going on here and weird leather trimming around the sleeve openings. Weird.
Ventile & Tweed Everest Jacket - This should remind you of Cabourn's Cameraman Parka. Throw some hook clasps on there and that's what you have. I'm not sure if I should be repulsed or find this coat very attractive.
Black Watch Field Coat - Gimmick? Sure. People love this stuff.
Barbour Landguard Jacket - First of many odd Barbour jackets; this one happens to be in wool rather than waxed cotton. Orvis is the place to get these in the States. This one is boring, I'll admit, but it fills out already gaudy outerwear wardrobes.
Barbour Surtees Jacket - Black military jackets? More European than some would prefer; which must mean that some people would prefer it.
Barbour Sapper Jacket - If you're avoiding hard collars. In about three coats you won't be able to distinguish one Barbour jacket from the next; it's in the details.
Nubuck Leather Country Coat - This is a cheaper Orvis leather offering. Notice the multiple pieces that make up the arm. Does it matter? Nah, it's still dope.
Line Pine Explorer Jacket - Compared to the first, this is Orvis' premium leather. It's a small car. Is it worth more than a small car? It's up to you and your disposable income.
Cattlemen's Sport Jacket - Warning sign is implied. If you don't see it, reconsider your tastes. It can be worn modernly; you just have to tread very carefully.
Barbour Wessex Jacket - This is a pretty casual Barbour jacket. It's awesome but be aware of its limitations.
Waxed Cotton Fatigue Jacket - Prototypical Orvis mainline jacket.
Barbour Sporting Lightweight Washable Tweed Jacket - Orvis wenting digging through Barbour's line and found some unusual stuff. Barbour - it's not just waxed jackets.
Vintage N-1 Naval Deck Coat - Orvis is just making sure that if you can't find it at a military surplus store, you can find it at Orvis.
Lone Pine North Fork Jacket - I'n going to go ahead and say that this is ugly. Disagree if you wish but it's still as much as a dryer.
Schott Coach's Jacket - A coat that references the varsity jackets of old without being obnoxious? Yep, Gant and Golden Bear can make what they want but this jacket frames what you're already wearing better than the brights that those companies offer. When in doubt, go neutral.
Taylor Supply Roosevelt Jacket - It's the first and only shawl collar coat we see Orvis offer this season. They've collaborated with Taylor Supply in the past and mean to continue.
Waxed Cotton Anorak - This is the best looking mainline Orvis coat offered. Just don't match your khakis to it. It fits into many aesthetics and would be useful from early spring to late fall.
Pendleton Ranch Coat - Lloyd.
Barbour Steve McQueen Quilted Jacket - Steve McQueen jacket on a blog? Wait that means... Oh Jesus.
Schott Waxed Cotton Toggle Jacket - Waxed cotton duffle coat? Yerp, right here folks. Schott and Orvis have been going hard.
Peregrine Isle of Man Jacket - It's loud and obnoxious. Racin'.
Barbour Steve McQueen Riding Jacket - "Oh Jesus" is right.
Vanson Princeton Moto Patch Jacket - I didn't know Orvis carried the same outerwear they sell at Journeyz.
Barbour Thetford Jacket - Quilted Barbour just through the shoulders? Another niche filled.
Barbour Vintage International Leather Jacket - Motorcycles and Barbour.
Barbour Sporting 3-n-1 - Gore-Tex and fleece: are we at Dick's?
Trail Crew Jacket - The kids are smokin' pot in your woods? Bust 'em Mr. Park Ranger.
Barbour Coquet Jacket - A Beaufort in a different outer.
Barbour Drigg Jacket - Like a Liddesdale but even less formal. Ew.
Barbour Porchester Leather Coat - A Beaufort in leather. Next: a Beaufort in newspaper.
Barbour Penton Jacket - The props department called and they want their stupid jacket back.
Vintage Washed Canyon Jacket - There are better options that are cheaper.
Barbour Highmoor Jacket - Are we done with these variations yet? This one's a button front.
Barbour Steve McQueen Greenham Jacket - GTBT gone OBF on y'all.
Barbour Steve McQueen Enduro Jacket - Dammit, shoulda' saved that joke for this one.
Barbour Derwent Jacket - This is exhausting. No one told me it would be this much work.
Barbour Waxed Down Jacket - Beaufort in down with a hood. They're throwin' curve balls in here.
Bison Jacket - If I weren't so cranky I'd think that this was great.
English Shearling Jacket - Leather with hook clasps? Very cool, even after looking at 50 fucking coats.
Orvis. Their stock is huge.
