Here they are, not much for me. What do others think?

I thought there were some nice patterns there.
This one looked like a straight jacket to me. Maybe in a different color it wouldn't??

Hmmm. Unfortunately, I can always find patterns to talk myself into. First pass yielded two possibilities.
Tunic for moi
Blouse for DD?

Actually, I see *a lot* that I like! And, thank God, the models are in more or less normal poses so you can actually look at the clothing instead of being distracted!
I think this peplum jacket is freakin' fantastic (although I'm not crazy about the pleats going round to the front):
...And this! OH!! Be still my heart... although where will normal people wear it?
...For more practical wear, I like this sweater knit hoodie, too!
And this jacket is classy and interesting without being bizarre (which, I can admit, my first two choices could be described that way!):

I like several of the new Vogues. Love the Kay Unger 1328, and I'd make it in a heartbeat if I had someplace to wear it this winter.
And 8852 - finally a Vogue evening gown that looks like RTW.
And I, too, am in love with the rhumba skirt 8858, as impractical as it is.
My favorite is is the Guy Larouche jacket 1335. I have some wool melton in stash that would work up nicely, or - I could really see this in a blanket pattern like the re-issued Pendleton Toboggon Coat.
Much to like, also a couple of blouses.

Nothing that I would really make for myself. I do love that ballgown skirt - AMAZING, but I would never wear it.... otherwise, I'm not overwhelmed.

LOVE the Claire Shaeffer jacket.
I sure do miss all the incredibly fabulous designer patterns Vogue used to have.
I heart Panzy, Pfaff Creative Performance, the sewing machine love of my life!
And Baby (Enlighten serger), Victor (BLCS), Rupert (Pfaff 2023-knits expert) Ash (B350SE-Artwork), Kee (B750QEE-Panzy's BFF), Georgie (B560-Kee's baby sister) and the Feather-Flock!
Most of all, I heart Woo (HimmyCat). Until we meet again, my beautiful little boy. I love you.

There is a lot that I like in this collection, in fact there is very little that I don't like, despite all the bare arms in a winter collection. I'm so pleased that the models don't look broken anymore, plus there are some nice fabrics in the photos.
I am intrigued by the Pamela Roland pod jacket (V1332) and I like the straight jacket (V1332) (as sewingsilly described it) as well. Not sure which one I will get.
I also like the new Claire Shaeffer (V8845), which I will probably buy, even if it is just to read it.
For once, the Koos pattern does not inspire me. I'm usually smitten with his patterns, but this coat (V1331) looks too much like a caterpillar, even for me.

Like the billed 'newsboy' hat, V8869. My uncle, a super guy, wears that style quite nicely. If I make it he will wear it. I hear the double faced wool calling.....
Tickled to see V8858 from Marcy Tilton, something a bit different from the Oregon woods.
V8854. Why is it that I still love a hoodie? Studying the pattern to see where the front can be weighted to offset the weight of the hood.
My mom had the ultimate hoodie; fortuny pleated creamy crepe dress. Hooded with a v neck that discreetly crossed before plunging to the waist and toned down with little demure kimono sleeve caps. She let me wear it once for a special occasion. That dress could have made a log look glamorous!
