STP has great stuff, but I'm really tempted by buying something military surplus.
On the other hand, I almost want to get a nice barbour coat or barn jacket. I'm a big-time sucker for english country style, I don't know if thats considered lame around here, but I really dig it.
i definitely like english country style. i don't know if that's the official name. only problem is my coloring is sallow/olive so the grey-greens, browns, and greys that you find in that style are not particularly suited to me. plus it's a little less casual than im usually prepared for.
in southern california a peacoat is too warm to wear often. i just got a linen peacoat that otherwise is traditional (navy, nautical design on buttons). it's warm, but not ridiculously so. i hope linen does not make it too silly...
