Seems as the Temple of Jawns jacket is a bit longer in the sleeves and doesn't have that mid pocket. Wonder how their light brown compares..

Is this item too casual to be paired with white/stone/light colored slacks due to its material?

It was 60% off so seems like a good deal. I don't own a Navy Sports coat and have been looking for quite some time. 1,045 to $415

No offense taken. Not an old man. I'll def try it on though, Nordstroms is easy returns and free shipping.

I'm looking for a quality pair of black pants and grey pants that are straight through the thigh with a taper below the knee and can fit a 38" waist, 26"-27" thighs, and a large squat-butt. My budget would be up to $150 per pair.

Same, posted above.

A lot of people here hate sandals. With that said there is like some sandal thread over here with more unorthodox and interesting sandal designs... Something that doesn't fit most aesthetics. If you think sandals are suitable footwear then you are probably from California. In that case you are in good shape getting a pair of leather rainbows.

I would love some suggestions on a good fitting OCBD for casual wear -- I'm 14.5-15 x 32, 38 chest, 29 waist. Most shirts I try are a bit too tight in the chest area. I just wanted to hear what the best quality-for-price options are, possibly including later tailoring or MTM. Suggestions for cardigans and/or v-necks T-shirts are also appreciated. Thanks.

For OCBDs, lots of people on SF wear Uniqlo.  I personally don't like Uniqlo OCBDs because the collar wraps all the way around your neck even when unbuttoned, and there is way too much fabric at the stomach (tailoring would be a necessity for someone with your build).

 

My build is almost exactly the same as yours, and my favorite OCBD is one I got from Gilt - a Luciano Brandi shirt.  I think it's a Gilt-only brand (and the name sounds like a ripoff of the classic and well-respected Luciano Barbera shirting company), but my Luciano Brandi shirt is very well-made, fits me perfectly without any alterations, and has a substantial collar that stands up and out as it should.  Gilt doesn't sell them very often, though.

 

For MTM, check out Modern Tailor and Proper Cloth.

 

For tees, Everlane is popular among the natives. $15 for a very well-made tee with super-comfy ring-spun cotton.  (Of course, they're no good if they don't fit you).

Uniqlo tees are also pretty good.  As I said, my build is almost the same as yours (slightly smaller chest), and Uniqlo tees fit me well.  If you don't live in NYC, use suddenlee.com to proxy and buy Uniqlo stuff for you (Uniqlo doesn't have an online store).

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll have to keep a sharp lookout on Gilt. 

Do you get size S for Uniqlo tees?

Returned this FYI. The fit was actually pretty nice sans arms. I don't think it's old man at all. I have muscular arms so it didn't work out too well. I'm going to try out the JCrew Ludlow piece since it's more than 40% off right now and see if that works. I'd like the Epaulet NY one but that is the priciest option.
