That's a gorgeous coat. Without the belt it would
be perfect. I wish I could justify a new overcoat,
but in the local climate it would be superfluous.

Without a belt it wouldn't be an Ulster though. It seems a lot of the gents at Pitti had this style, including Taka from Liverano & Liverano who just made himself one.

biggrin.gif Yes, you are right, but I wasn't talking of Ulster

Just my preference...I really prefer peak lapels for navy overcoat.

Navy is a fine color. Interestingly, the popularity of blue in men's clothing originated because of its remarkable ability to compliment almost any man's complexion better than the more traditional white and more easily than any less common colors. To this day, most "real" men's dress shirts are either blue, white, or some pattern-y combination of both. 

Navy has also been described as a "youthful" color which accentuate youth in the young and give an impression of youthfulness, or at least provide contrast in the aging. 

 

I'm actually in the market for a navy suit, as, unfortunately, I don't actually own  a suit yet. (I basically wear the same sportcoat and blazer all the time).

Also, the suit picture Pliny just posted above is, in my opinion, an excellent color, style, and fit.

It appears to fit quite nicely, but in my opinion shoulders like those call for a lot more build up / padding / drape / what-have-you than that. Suit fosters a very pear-shaped silhouette.

A bit pagoda shoulders at the moment..

Arche is right..

You need a little bit of padding..

Lose some weight around the middle, sure.  Prefer a soft shoulder tho.
