All you DR fans might be interested in this auction for a brown horsehide Aero in size 38 (which I understand fits more like your standard 40) - no connection to seller, etc, just came across my radar: http://m.ebay.com/itm/Aero-Leather-size-38-Double-Jacket-Front-Quarter-Horsehide-Brown-MOTORCYCLE-/272379658417?nav=SEARCH
What socks are you wearing? In the winter I use these with my unlined White's BH, and my feet only begin to get cold when the temperature reaches single digits (Farenheit).http://m.basspro.com/RedHead-Lifetime-Guarantee-AllPurpose-Socks-for-Men/product/34713/
A Filson mackinaw cruiser in black wool might fit the bill here - just different enough to stand out in a sea of peacoats, and available in suitcoat sizes (i.e., not just S-M-L) so you can dial in a decent fit.
This in a shearling-lined horsehide please & thank you
Wolverine 1000 Mile laces work great for White's SD, & are *just* long enough for 6" Bounty Hunters.https://www.therightlace.com/products/shoe-brand/wolverine-1000-mile/boot
A dash of graphite dust may help - the kind sold in tubes for lubricating locks.
I have ordered leather laces from White's before - can't compare them to Viberg's though as I have no experience with the latter brand. The White's leather laces are pretty robust, thick enough that speed hooks are anything but speedy the first few weeks. Obenaufing helps with the stiffness, and they have a very slight elasticity over the instep that makes long days on my feet more bearable. Also great if you're welding, as the sparks won't melt them through like nylon...
The woman on far right in the blue suit with grey vest = total babe. Pulls off the "I'm a woman, but it's a menswear convention so I'm gonna wear menswear" thing quite well, with just the right touch of humor.
I wear a 40L suit, bought a size 40 mackinaw vest some years ago. There's definitely room for layering beneath - if you'll be wearing it outdoors in truly cold parts of the country, as I do, that's probably a good idea. If not, and you'll just have it over a normal shirt (& undershirt?), I'd definitely go one size down.
"If anyone cares for a review of my specific build and the leather, I'd be happy to write another post." - @Neognosis Curious what you have to say about British Tan - it's on a shortlist of mine for any future lightduty-workboot builds.
