Casual StyleFall StyleOuterwearSpring StyleStyle BJ McGeever “Hand-curated”? -_- C’mon guys, you’re better than that. http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew Hey! Sorry, not following? Christian Naylor I think that curated is being used incorrectly, perhaps? I don’t know. http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew Haha, double-checked, definitely used it correctly. Christian Naylor Yeah, it sounded right to me. Thanks for all that you do, Andrew! Allen Yeah, to curate something means to be in charge of and care for it, not to select or create it as it seems you mean. http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew It is also defined as: select, organize, and present (online content, merchandise, information, etc.), typically using professional or expert knowledge. “nearly every major news organization is using Twitter’s new lists feature to curate tweets about the earthquake” http://voyagner.com Dan Haneveer I think it’s more the “hand” bit. Sounds quiet hipster. Curated implies enough care that it doesn’t need to be preceded by “hand”. Also it might be a bit misleading. Have you physically handled each of these jackets? Why use web images if you have? Alex Robbins …I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your soul. BJ McGeever This is what I was getting at. bryclops I actually thought the “hand-” part was the silly part. I don’t know if it’s trying to have shades of “handmade” or what, but come on. You clicked a mouse, my man. “Curated” gets the job done. That being said, it was a mouse well clicked. Nice spread you put together here. http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew Clicked a mouse…with my hand! 😀 Bob Do you recommend sizing up on these jackets to allow room for your shirts? Should they fit snug or a little loose? If the sleeve length on one of these jackets is extending past the base of your palm is that too long? Jay From personal experience, I always size up with Frank and Oak shirts and jackets. They run very slim. I usually that the same approach with Target, but their sizing is all over the place. Jay I love light jackets. They really complete a lot of my personal groups. I went crazy a few weeks ago and got a few jackets from both Target and Frank and Oak. Marc I hope it’s just me, but what’s up with all of the nylon snap-button jackets on this page? Is that “in” now? http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew Haha, yeah a lot of stores are selling them right now. Butch_Zee Not really feeling it with any of these except the Old Navy jacket. But for that price, you can get an actual M65 Field Jacket. SalPic Me neither, but I also live in Florida and don’t need a jacket that often so… John Is the Frank and Oak really worth $85 more than the Dickies Quilted Jacket? Just didn’t want to put Dickies on twice? Some of that stuff is overpriced brand whore #menswear porn. And some of it is “style on a budget,” like Primer (and your cousin Dappered) used to be. JW Careful with that old navy hooded guy. Bought one winter of last year and at 6’2″ 200 lbs. I’m swimming in a medium. Maybe they’ve worked on fit this year, but it’s something to look out for. Josh M Great. Now I have to spend the rest of the week deciding if I truly know the definition of “hand” and “curated”. My world has been flipped. Dictionary.com aside, great jackets Andrew. TJ I really like some of these options. As I live in Florida, a light jacket is the most I’ll ever need. http://Batmannananana.com/ Caesar Merlin Has anyone tried the Target quilted jacket? how warm is it compared to a down quilted jacket?
