IRL: Bruce Willis in Pulp Fiction

Eight to 10 years ago, when Netflix sent the DVD of Pulp Fiction to your place, and you watched it, Bruce Willis’s Butch Coolidge looked pretty dated. A product of the mid-’90s if ever there was one.

That chill in the air: it’s... actually, nonexistent.

But it’ll arrive eventually. And when it does, you’ll notice all manner of dapper jacketry making its way onto the racks at a purveyor near you, like this wool-and-goose-down bomber by Brunello Cucinelli. It’s part of his newly available fall collection, and we wish you luck finding a more handsome way to fend off the breeze this coming season.

Here’s what else you need to know.
