busted out my old BB duffel coat today.
had this for almost 10 years. kinda frayed, and too long in the sleeves, but it sure as hell keeps me warm and dry.

Went out oblivious of the fact that last Saturday people dressed up for Halloween everywhere in Beijing. Chinese girls kept calling me William Prince. Ended up making third price at a costume competition as British royal and heir to the throne.
Today went visiting two tailors:
Later that same day I replaced the gettup with a less than $10 uniqlo navy turtleneck. channeling my inner NOBD
You really must be new here. Most people understand the British tradition, that black shoes are the first resort with blue suits, and that the US approach, that is brown shoes with blue suits, has become acceptable and is certainly more common these days. Sure, people disagree about which is 'best' aesthetically, but only relative newcomers don't get that both are entirely proper.
The shoulders were bothering me. I typically wear about a 38R, but it seems that the shoulders run a little wide on this one. I hadn't really noticed it until earlier today.
Do you think it's worth getting some of the padding removed, or just give up on the SC since the shoulders are too wide (they're about a 1/2" too wide on each side)?
