MMM Gats have elastic on the tongue like artishard said, the tongue stays the same whether there is laces in or not.
I like the jacket both open and closed, it is a very different jacket when closed.
I wore it with the gats and white tee because sometimes I just want to throw a jacket on over jeans and a tee, and it being my new jacket, thats what I did. When I'm doing something besides just going to work then back home I'll put a little more thought into it. But I see where you are coming from.
There're a lot of peacoats about at the moment but I think this looks great jwied. What's the material of the coat?
Beard is an animal
thanks. Its a cotton/poly blend (53/47). Has a little bit of a brushed feeling and a little sheen to it in certain light. Also seems to being somewhat water-resistant. Decent material, seems suitable to for the style of the coat.
bows- that jacket is an incredible piece, but it has nighttime written all over it. Don't take this the wrong way but wearing it to work with t-shirt and sneakers looks pretentious, unless your job calls for that type of outlandishness.
jwied- that coat is a perfect fit.
cbusguy- great cardi, and I love it even more knowing you dyed it yourself.
