What, no Sovereigns?
The big advantages of ETFs are that you can trade them intra-day, the fund sponsor can't prevent you from buying for the short term (as Vanguard will do if you're a threat to park many millions in their index funds), and you're unlikely to get hit with realized gain distributions if everyone else liquidates their shares. None of which seem relevant to your situation.Indexed mutual funds will often have lower expenses than ETFs. You also don't have transaction cost...
If you had a certain Italian tailor, you'd understand all.
I appreciate the tradition of using tweed here, and I'm not ruling out getting one down the line (or maybe in covert cloth). Still, I'm currently replacing a Schneider charcoal cashmere coat that had pretty much the same styling and worked very well. The question is if I were to move a little away from the previous coat, are there problems I should look for (or solutions to welcome)?
I'm thinking about getting a balmacaan (SB overcoat, shirt-type collar) for next winter. There are lots of practical things to do in that department, but I;m thinking about something nice and soft for going out in the evening without necessarily looking over-dressed. Has anyone here had experience with the Harrisons navy camel hair coating? Or on a more practical level, has anyone found a useful source of loden cloth?
Lining down to the knees should help some of this.
I have one in beige linen that hasn't yet seen a ton of wear. It's a little too dark to be a summer dinner jacket, but otherwise I should be able to dress it up or down.
Lesser 8/9 (sharp office-wear) or RAF POW (relaxed office, slightly off-duty) are fine additions to have in the rotation. Or you could get the winter equivalents (Lesser, LL) if you think that the fresco will cover you for this summer. All will be useful to have around. Which to choose first really depends on what you don't have but need today.
Get therapy-- NOW!
Summer is coming soon, believe it or not, and if you don't have a lightweight suit you might find yourself wanting one. Depending on how fast your tailor works, you wil likely have time to put the other ones in production. That LL RAF Mistral is gorgeous! I'm afraid to make mine up in case I suddenly lose weight or get in a car accident.
