 FWIW I never said it'd go with "anything" myself and regardless of what color you want to call it, though the description for the record refers to at as a "brown HB", it's still pretty neutral assuming it's a grey.  Also, grey can be made in appearance or otherwise by a mix of both black and white.  Even if it is indeed "black/charcoal and white/ecru herringbone", it's still quite versatile in that it can be paired with other colors and other shades of color.
 I like that look.  I wish I were trim enough to pull it off more often.   Yes mate, WI it is.  Would hate for you to go hunting in a city the size of New York for it. 
 Perhaps no one would care to make it look like anything remotely resembling Ferragamo.  I know I wouldn't.  And perhaps no one would care to present a more polished look with such a vest.   The art of style?  Oh boy.  Good thing you're here to educate the forum.  For starters, I have over 20 years experience styling.  On top of that I was recently told by a professor who has taught color for 30 years that I have a "remarkable" ability to pair colors that work well...
 Pick up on the blue?  The only blue on that vest is on the inside lining, so unless your'e hoping to somehow pick up on the inside of the hood or you're going to leave it unzipped and somehow try and pick up on it that way there is no blue to pick up on.  On top of that the way you're styling it is pretty basic.  I have no problem with that at all because you can still go basic and put together a great look, but considering your comments I guess I would have expected...
 You can do a shirt underneath or a sweater or both.  I would recommend the one for sale here on the forum.  Notable difference in price and I think it's nicer, though perhaps tougher to pull off with some flannels as it's not going to be as versatile in that regard as the one for sale at Context.
One more that's more me and similar to what I wear:     Mackintosh yellow Dunoon handmade raincoat. http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/yellow-dunoon-handmade-hooded-raincoat-2868.html   Big John crazy stripe shirt. http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/crazy-stripe-shirt.html   Farnese beige Olona canvas and suede belt. http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/beige-olona-canvas-and-suede-belt.html   Big John slim straight jeans in 15oz...
"When in Rome"     Eidos navy hemp hopsack field jacket. http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/navy-hemp-hopsack-field-jacket-14-15-oz.html   Begg and Co white, blue and navy gingham cotton and linen scarf. http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/accessories/scarves/white-blue-and-navy-gingham-cotton-linen-scarf.html   Niche blue and white floral linen "Broma"...
I'm looking to move into the "higher end" watch market, but I have a few Swiss Army Maverick divers (the previous version, not the current version)and I have to say they look great if you're looking for a poor man's diver.  I got them all from eBay for about $90-$125 each.  If you get the version with the rubber band you can take that band off and replace with a Nato or a leather strap.  Really nice watches at that price.
Just got the three pair of Butteros I ordered over the weekend.  Love them all.  I'm Butteroed out now that I have six pair to rotate, but I'm sure I'll spot another pair I like soon.  Anyway, I was a bit curious to see how they'd be packaged considering it was three pair and I'm sure you don't see too many orders like that, but they were perfectly packaged.  Very nicely done.   Curious as to the Buttero restocks on the way.  I'm assuming the burgundy calf Taninos aren't...
 I was of the same mind.  I own Cabourn coats made with Mackintosh, one is very much like the one I'm looking at here.  Dunoon is supposed to be a bit more tailored, but the measurements don't make it seem that way.  They all seem like a "standard" fit which IMO is a good thing.
