Well Covered

Jan 13th, 2010 | Categories: Blogs, Outerwear | by Sean Sullivan

We all have our obsessions. Shoes, clothing, cameras, vintage issues of Playboy (for the articles of course). Nicolas, from the blog One-Upmanship, seems to have a slight infatuation with outerwear and has amassed quite the collection judging by one of his Flickr sets. His vintage mini-archive has a strong offering of throwback jackets from the golden age of foul-weather-design. Sierra Designs, Barbour and Peter Storm all make an appearance in these well styled pics. You’re welcome in advance for the newest additions to your eBay watch list and for the day-crushing new addition to your RSS reader. —SEAN SULLIVAN

    The outdoor settings for the photo shoots and posing of the garments really adds delightfully humorous touch.

    “How patronising.”

    And what about that is patronizing? I’m not aware of any retail spots that sell these jackets new….
