Thanks. I'd been thinking about getting a bowler for a couple of years, but wasn't sure whether I could pull it off, and then thought sod it - I won't know unless I try... I think it's actually easier to wear than a trilby/fedora.
I hate hate hate tucking a buttoned shirt into jeans. Tbh, your style looks so great with trousers I'm not sure I would even bother wearing jeans at all. Not that you don't look fine in them, but your coats are so full of textury goodness that trousers usually accentuate the top half more than denim can. But I know a guy sometimes just want to kick it in a good pair of jawns.
edit- eh, take that with a grain of salt. Looking at it again, they do look pretty good on you. The tucking into jeans thing is a pet peeve of mine, but you're making it work pretty well there. I still think trousers might be a little better.
