On The Fance
I'm so excited I can wear this coat again - I was one of my best thrfting finds an seeing as shearling coats are really on trend this year, high iv! The one trend part is a big deal however, I love shearling for the sheer (haha) warmth - I can and usually do wear a shearling in -50F and have never gotten cold, I would pick it even over down filled. (Like a Canadian Goose jacket - omg, I'd not seen those in Alaska until that terrible winter in the lower 48 made them popular and now I see so many people saying you can't make it through a winter without plunking down at least $800 on one. Bull shit! Go with either L.L.Bean's parkas, pretty reasonable for the longevity of the coat or a Fleet St Parka, I've owned both and those coats are bomb in the deep cold.)
I've tried on a lot of high rise flares and so far, AG's The Janis is the best - nice rise, good washes and good proportion on the flare. I'd say they also run pretty true to size and while they do have stretch, I haven't had a rouble with mine bagging out at all, they hold their shape nicely. Best part, they are on ebay for between $14-$29 in all size quite often!
