Maybe I'm too much of a purist? But this reb_bel type III inspired jacket makes my eyes bleed:

-elongated body
-handwarmer pockets (they have no business on a type III
-ball and chain zipper pull (those belong to 30s / early 40s style jackets, the type III is a late 60s design)
-30s style zipper pull

The people who made this thing clearly don't have a clue what they're doing. To top it all off they've thrown in a couple of 'rugged menswear' instagram buzzword hashtags.

Did you know that a celebrity-approved designer has fused safe sex practices and fashion into a single piece of outerwear?

Asher Levine, a New York-based fashion designer, has created a rain coat out of the same silicone used to make condoms.

The $1,200 design, which is reminiscent of Leslie Nielsen’s famous ‘safe sex’ scene in Naked Gun, ‘feels exactly like a condom but without the lube,’ Levine, said.

I don't know what you're seeing, I think it's a pretty nice looking sleeping bag.

Better call Shawn then to get yourself a screen accurate repro.

This reminded me of all of us being accused, due to our preference for a neat retro fit, of being big fans of some brand I had never heard of, so I decided to look up their jackets:

Interestingly, none of these seem to be anywhere close to our supposedly trend-chasing preference in jacket fit.

I can only imagine that this brand is a money-laundering scheme.
