Orvis Outerwear

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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


Black Watch Field Coat - Gimmick? Sure. People love this stuff.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


Barbour Surtees Jacket - Black military jackets? More European than some would prefer; which must mean that some people would prefer it.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


Barbour Wessex Jacket - This is a pretty casual Barbour jacket. It's awesome but be aware of its limitations.


Photobucket


Waxed Cotton Fatigue Jacket - Prototypical Orvis mainline jacket.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


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.


Photobucket


Pendleton Ranch Coat - Lloyd.


Photobucket


Barbour Steve McQueen Quilted Jacket - Steve McQueen jacket on a blog? Wait that means... Oh Jesus.


Photobucket


Schott Waxed Cotton Toggle Jacket - Waxed cotton duffle coat? Yerp, right here folks. Schott and Orvis have been going hard.


Photobucket


Peregrine Isle of Man Jacket - It's loud and obnoxious. Racin'.


Photobucket


Barbour Steve McQueen Riding Jacket - "Oh Jesus" is right.


Photobucket


Vanson Princeton Moto Patch Jacket - I didn't know Orvis carried the same outerwear they sell at Journeyz.


Photobucket


Barbour Thetford Jacket - Quilted Barbour just through the shoulders? Another niche filled.


Photobucket


Barbour Vintage International Leather Jacket - Motorcycles and Barbour.


Photobucket


Barbour Sporting 3-n-1 - Gore-Tex and fleece: are we at Dick's?


Photobucket


Trail Crew Jacket - The kids are smokin' pot in your woods? Bust 'em Mr. Park Ranger.


Photobucket


Barbour Coquet Jacket - A Beaufort in a different outer.


Photobucket


Barbour Drigg Jacket - Like a Liddesdale but even less formal. Ew.


Photobucket


Barbour Porchester Leather Coat - A Beaufort in leather. Next: a Beaufort in newspaper.


Photobucket


Barbour Penton Jacket - The props department called and they want their stupid jacket back.


Photobucket


Vintage Washed Canyon Jacket - There are better options that are cheaper.


Photobucket


Barbour Highmoor Jacket - Are we done with these variations yet? This one's a button front.


Photobucket


Barbour Steve McQueen Greenham Jacket - GTBT gone OBF on y'all.


Photobucket


Barbour Steve McQueen Enduro Jacket - Dammit, shoulda' saved that joke for this one.


Photobucket


Barbour Derwent Jacket - This is exhausting. No one told me it would be this much work.


Photobucket


Barbour Waxed Down Jacket - Beaufort in down with a hood. They're throwin' curve balls in here.


Photobucket


Bison Jacket - If I weren't so cranky I'd think that this was great.


Photobucket


English Shearling Jacket - Leather with hook clasps? Very cool, even after looking at 50 fucking coats.


Orvis. Their stock is huge.

  3. I really like the wax bomber, the washable tweed jacket and the simpler Barbours, they're handsome and practical.

    I am bewildered to see that leather patch motorcyle jacket from Orvis of all companies. I saw people wearing those jackets sporting green ponytails and goatees driving heinously modified hondas at an outlet mall/check cashing store parking lot five years ago. Is that the type of people they're trying to cater to?

    I'm also really getting disheartened by the constant and perpetual influx of pre-weathered garments like the cattlemen's sport and penton jackets, I can't stand the disingenuity. The jackets that actually look like that were bought nice and new and laboriously weathered over years of work. One should enjoy giving a finely made garment its battle scars, each one tells a story. People want it now instead of having to work for it, the entitlement generation, yadda yadda yadda.

    I also do wish they would stop selling out McQueen's name like that, his legacy doesn't deserve to become the Martha Stewart of the menswear realm. The man knew what he liked, and supported those things. People should in turn do the same. Instead of trying to be like someone they admire, they should all use those positive traits to define their own character that they can be known for; no one wants to be remembered as the dude who was always trying to be like Steve McQueen.
