My view, for what its worth, is that a down vest/gilet is a pretty casual look, As such I would not wear it with a jacket/tie. I think they can look quite good as more casualwear. Lildog posted some nice pictures. for a bit dressier look I suggest wool ones like I linked.....
I have been thinking about this one, too. http://shop.ibex.com/merino-wool-clothing/mens-vests-jackets/m-arlberg-vest_2#clr2247 But I really like the tweedy look - a bit more old school vs the more outdoor wear look. My navy Guillotine one looks great under my brown tweed blazer. looks country/pastoral....
interesting topic.   I just bought a gilet from here:   http://guillotine-england.co.uk/   I like it but sometimes it wish it was a bit shorter.  But there isnt much padding in shoulders which I like.   Where did you get yours?
You wouldn't have a last comparable to Alden's Modified Last, would you?? I wear a 9.5 EEE in it and it's about all I can wear. If you do, you will have dozens of loyal customers here - see 50 page + thread on Modified Last!
Hi Gents,   I am looking for a modern tweed gilet - I realize that is a bit of a contradiction.  I really like the collared ones with herringbone tweed.    I found some I like at Guillotine England but wanted to see if there are other good ones available.  I cant seem to post pictures - apologies as my laptop doesnt seem to grab the pictures.  But here is the link:   http://guillotine-england.co.uk/gilets/   Any other suggestions appreciated.
no gilet fans here?

My wife is Russian and from that area.   It sounds like you should be prepare for near zero temperatures, though it may be warmer.  But prepare for butt-cold weather and maybe be pleasantly surprised.  I lived in Chicago for years which is a pretty good comp for cold cold weather.   My two cents:   warm flannel pants are important.  and long underwear and you will be warm. warm sweaters (cashmere?) really help.  I like ones that button up higher on the neck as it...
I love my Norwegian Rain Moscow overcoat!  Very warm and stylish.   NoManWalksAlone carries them I think.....
I appreciate you bringing back the moleskin rivet chinos.   I wish I had known as I ordered a pair of brown moleskin chinos with my tailor last month after I heard you werent bringing them back this year.....   Oh well.....
