I haven't used this jacket in soon 3 years. But since my current jacket is in for dry-cleaning, I'd figure ill use it.
I rarely see anyone wearing a jacket like this, and I don't know why considering that it's comfortable, keeps wind and raid away, and also looks good. A great autumn jacket.
So I guess my question to you /fa/ is if this type of jacket is so out of style that I shouldn't wear it, or if its nothing wrong with it.

This is going to sound like an odd question, but I think it is worth asking.
Have any of you found that as time goes by your personality has changed toward being in-line with your fashion sense to an uncomfortable degree?
By that I mean: did you begin with your fashion sense being a recontextualization of your personality, that is, something of a defiance of expectations, and then find that over time your personality became closer to what people would expect, given how you dress?
It happened to me. I dress in something like a "heritage" look. When I started, I was deeply interested in electronic music, philosophy, my politics were liberal, etc. I thought that dressing this way would put these in the context of my upbringing in the country and my interest in old tradition.
But four years later, I'm listening to country music almost exclusively, my literary and philosophic tastes have taken a turn for the anti-intellectual, and my politics have become mostly conservative.
Did my fashion sense predict my change toward this stereotype? Am I losing my individuality, or was individuality just an illusion in a period of life where I hadn't yet filled out the mold life had made for me?
Or is this just a phase full of coincidence, which I'll likely pass through?
But the important question is: Have any of you had a similar experience, where your wardrobe began as an exciting statement of individuality and deteriorated into an affirmation of your conformity to a type?
