Necrothread, but I noticed the Cappelli outlet has one of those:

I do not wear it anymore. It was only in my office because it was in my pile to donate to the Open Door Mission.

You should wear it Wooly, that's a great looking jacket. It wouldn't happen to be a 44R?

Love the suits but don't care for the tie/shirt combos.

I'm still pretty new around here and looking for some advice/opinions about a Brown Sport Coat I recently acquired. I'm a college guy so no bespoke sport coats/suits...yet; however, I've read enough to know that fit is very important. I know I need the sleeves shortened and while my tailor is in there (the sleeve) I was thinking about putting some nicer buttons on it. I like the idea of making it a tiny bit less mass produced feeling.

 

Here are some of the buttons I was considering: Button 1Button 2Button 3 Of course I’d take recommendations on other styles of buttons but I was thinking horn or anything that doesn’t look like it goes on a suit. Regarding size I need something available in around a Ligne 36 and 28.

 

I figured the "in praise of brown" thread would be friendly! Kind of a long post thanks for reading!

Hey guys - just purchased this brown tweed herringbone sports coat from kent wang. It's my first tweed, and I'm wondering what kind of tie (texture and color) would be suitable to wear with it (navy grenadine? shantung)? Thanks for the help!

You can wear almost anything with that sport coat...great looking BTW. I have one very similar and I really like the look of grossa grenadine in chocolate, burgundy, navy, forest green, burnt orange, purple and gold with and solid blue or blue Bengal stripe shirt.
