Hi Gents,   I am looking for a tweed overcoat - likely a bit more casual.   Any suggestions where one can get modern version of a nice warm tweed overcoat with some style?  Ovadia and Sons had a sweet one but I tried to wait until it went to a good sale price and now they are all gone.  Alas....   Thanks.
Pdsf, Thanks for the insightful info! Very helpful indeed. You could indeed be a bag consultant. I got the brown twill Filson briefcase for $170 with shipping from Brooks as a carryover for now. Then I will have time to carefully look for a decent deal on a leather on for the long term. I dont want to rush this decison and want to better learn whats available. I guess its time to read more of this thread! Thanks again. What are your views on JW Hulme?
Wow - this is a great thread.  I am glad I found it as I am looking for a leather briefcase/messenger bag.     There are excellent names here I have not heard of.  I only knew of JW Hulme, Ernest Alexander and Filson till I saw this thread.   Any thoughts on where to find a decent sale this time of year?  I want a leather one with a good shoulder strap and prefer around 5 inches+ wide that is durable.  Hope to stay under $600 if possible.    I have noticed that my...
OlSarge:   Your statement is indeed funny!   "I would, however, restrict such countryside dandyism to a group of my closest friends, ones that already know what a hopeless clothing nutcase I am.  They would just nod sadly and humor me in my dotage "     I would suggest that the hunter demographic in the US is a bit different than the UK.  Hunting probably tends to be more blue collar and rural folks here in the US. 
Mears looks pretty sweet.   But tell me - does anyone actually go hunting in a 3 piece suit?  Here in the US if you dressed like that, folks may start shooting at you.   I wish they had more tweed overcoats.
when does the mens sale at Paul Stuart start?
Folks here have suggested a white shirt/burgundy tie over a light blue shirt/burgundy tie.  Maybe try both in mirror and see what you prefer?
Hey PPanther,   I have noticed that many of your pictures have you in suits with stripes or plaids.  Do you wear solids much?  personal preferences?     I only have ~5 suits so 4 are solids and 1 POW.  I guess this gives me license to wear ties with a bit more action.
David,   I love that suit.  As I said earlier, it looks very aristocratic.  Perfect for landed gentry!
PPanther - I think you just helped make a stronger case for the COMPLETE set, at least for Mr. Hober!   I picture a SF member in his clothes closet eyes glazed, stroking the COMPLETE set, mumblinig "my precious, my precious...."
