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. 

 

Thanks! It's Ede & Ravenscroft MTM, from a few years or so ago. Actually, it's part of a 3pc suit, but I do wear the jacket on its own a fair bit too.

Anyone know where I can get jackets like this? I've got a few sport coats but would like to vary it up for the upcoming cold months.

I believe that one is Liverano, Safari Jacket. 

 

edit: Doesn't have to be specifically a safari jacket, just more casual than sport coats. And my price range is up to $600... doesn't HAVE to be that high though ;) Just need to make sure the quality isn't something I'll hate a month down the road when I see others.

Does it have to be suede? There are a few military field jackets I could think of, including the well-worn M65. The difficulty is sizing it right. Military clothing is often oversized to accommodate layering, so if you get one in your labeled size it invariably looks baggy.

No. But some kind of green or brown/khaki would work best.

Well, here is the high end.

Keep in mind, this is a Japanese made replica of the Vietnam era M65. Very high quality and I assume Streetwear sized. You could go with one from Alpha, or vintage. You will definitely have to size down with the Alpha. Lots of Streetwear brands make M65-like coats in a range of price and quality.

Personally I prefer the Arktis SAS type smock or something from Barbour. Unlike most military smocks the Arktis has a lining like a civilian garment. They are well made and unique, and at least in my opinion looks smart as Streetwear if you size down.

Here is a smock worn true to size:





And sized down:



They are available in olive, khaki, black and a variety of western military camp patterns, in different configurations.

Sweater weather. Yeah, I'm wearing my Keen hiking shoes. I will be outside, most of the day, and will be walking several miles.

MC Casual would make a cool name for an old school rapper. Sorry this rig clashes with my rug so badly.

Also has potential. I think jokes like this are how F Yeah Menswear got started (maybe?).

These last few weeks Mexico has been hit by one hurricane and one tropical storm, if I’m not mistaken, and a third one tropical storm/hurricane is forming near the Gulf of Mexico, so we still have a couple of weeks with a lot of rain. 

I hope that in Guerrero, the rain ceases cause it has already caused a lot of damage there.

By the way, is your coat "Hecho en Mexico"?
It seems that in countries like Argentina and Colombia there are many manufacturers of leather products: jackets, luggage, etc. How is the situation in Mexico?

Nope, actually it's made in Spain, I guess. Argentina has some really nice items made in leather, I don't know about Colombia. Mexico has some producers of items in leather but they are not very common. The mst well know is Cuadra, they make shoes of various type of leathers, they in fact sell the croc / alligator leather to Gucci and other big names and they make some clothing items in leather, mostly jackets.
