Balmain Homme Fall Winter 2010 "Teddy" Jacket


probably not a good picture, but nevermind. i admit i was very smitten by the gold buttoned peacoat in the same collection (on wishlist on the right...), but it was actually longer than what i expected, and i have a rather similar coat anyway. i love their take on the varsity-style jacket, i see this as a classic, and most probably getting better with age.

here's to a good investment piece.

  1. Ah, yes! I tried the teddy jacket the other day. It makes me look fat, sadly! It is certainly a very good investment piece, though!

  5. Can't wait to see you wearing it! I got the golden buttoned jacket in size 46 and it is a bit too long. Too bad that they only have your jacket in Red in US, which I don't like. Otherwise I would've gone for this one also ~

  6. SB: yes i saw your peacoat, i tweeted about it too. mine's 48, they only have the red teddy in 50, which i quite fancy too.

    yea the peacoat is longer than expected...

  7. Very nice!!! Strangely, I tried the "peacoat" with insignia too before I bought the real pea coat (the longer one on my blog) and I felt that it's really not a peacoat but more of a thick blazer as it (in size 34) hit right around my hip bone area (I guess I must be long waisted)...either way, I think you made a good choice because as beautiful as it may be, the jacket with insignia looks very pilot and will date very soon for such an expensive piece

  8. I tried it at Liberty's of London, I think. I also tried a great Balenciaga leather jacket - shame I have one already!

  10. It is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! So Jealous! I really wanted one, but decided to save the money for an Balmain Iconic Leather Jacket. Did they have them in store in Paris?

  13. Foxie, I definitely like the regular peacoat better than the one with the insignias so good move there on your part.

    Now, where can I get myself an extra $3,600 + tax to get one too?

  14. I just tried a teddy jacket @ Lacoste & it makes me look less fat... Perhaps it is worth buying the Lacoste one.
