Holdfast - is it a jacket-equivalent or an overcoat-equivalent:? It seems a hybrid style -but it works!

Not so much.

Thanks. It's a military-esque field jacket in a heavy cotton, and as you can see, it comes to about hip height on me, so I use it as a casual light coat rather than as a true jacket. Most of the time, I flip the lapels rather than laying them flat, and when buttoned all the way up, it's surprisingly warm for just cotton. Yesterday the temperature wasn't cool enough to need that, of course, so I used it more as a hybrid, as suggested. For about £50 from Zara several years ago, it's held up just fine and is very versatile.

Would it help if I said they were rubber-soled chukkas rather than the derbies they might appear to be in the pic? I know a dark burgundy would have been the obvious choice here, but it was raining pretty consistently, and I wanted rubber soles. Anyway, what with the navy brushed cotton trousers, I figure I've already broken enough SF rules so why not go for black shoes too? Besides, there's something vaguely consistent with wearing a miltary-inspired jacket to go for polished black boots with it, I reckon.

Need to get this jacket let out a touch at the waist at some point:

It's to be 34C/93F this afternoon in NYC, hence linen trousers and no jacket. I am going to my alterations tailor today, however, to have two sports jackets worked on - I've included the "before" pictures for your reference.

The square-as-ersatz-ascot came undone rather quickly (not really big enough to be tied in this way) and so returned to normal pocket duty later in the day:

I am shocked that I do not hate it. Perhaps I am in need of your counseling services?

This last fit is excellent!

Who is the maker for this jacket? I understand you're a 36 like me, and I struggle to find SB peak lapel jackets that don't make me look like I'm about to take flight.

A day still warm and humid here in NYC, with threat of thunderstorms this afternoon, hence more casual attire.

Shirt & trousers - BB
Shoes - Paul Stuart
