Holy crap, I’ve got a problem.
For crying out loud, It’s not even cold enough here to get ‘proper’ wear out of a single heavy jacket!
Oh well, here’s the current herd:

I LOL’d at my own posts in this thread. I dare not do it again as it won’t look remotely the same in 2-6 months. Maybe if the title was “show us your collection today”....that said I might have found some “keepers” of late. That is if the term applies to one season of wear. I have yet to find a jacket that I’d deem a lifer. Have no doubt I never will. I exist in TFL purgatory. I’m sure I’m not alone. Congrats and condolences to those who have transcended.

In fairness, does anyone's collection on here actually stay exactly the same for a full year? I'm pretty positive mine hasn't. I thought mine might, but then it still didn't :p

It only gets bigger!
I have added two more since this pic was taken, one more should arrive before the end of the year...

Your collection is one of my favorite ever. Mysteryo's too, Jeo's, etc. But what I find so impressive about it is that it's not just a random lineup of great bargains & interesting finds with a couple of high end jackets that should've been the one, thrown in but instead, it is a completely deliberate, well thought of, calculated collection of only the finest jackets you truly wanted to not just see but also wear (regardless of the fact that, and let's face it, you won't simply because of a technical issue that there's just too many jackets).

What I said earlier, anyone who'd find this hanger anything but impressive is a slob and I'd keep every single one of these jackets.

What puts me into perspective is the fact that, simply put, there isn't anyone that cares what I wear. Before, half the reason why I was getting new jackets was to get a reaction from someone I cared for, whatever it may be though I was always hoping it'd be positive one. Making someone happy is cool. With that out of the equation, I don't feel that need to get a certain jacket right away, even if I find something that I really like. It's much easier to just ignore it and move on because now I know my new jacket won't affect a damn thing in my life. That's... Okay, I guess. I can just wear one or two jackets that I have. But it makes me a bit sad. As much as I don't consider myself a collect, an idea of a collection is very appealing and know that whenever someone'd visit me, they would be genuinely interested in my jackets and what I've piled up in the mean time.

I gotta sell a few more jackets, though. Once that's done, I don't suppose I'll be buying anything else. So no collection from me. Sadly...

Nice collection there Carlos, and well presented as well. That's worth a whole room :)

Might not hurt to do a little special insurance policy for this collection...

Stellar...quality and quantity.
How’s the wall rack coming?
I see serious weight there.
