I've handled the derby version and they don't look very good in person.

If you have the money, I would rather get the Common Projects Postal Boot or a pair of Red Wing Postman. You can find the RW's on Ebay now for a decent price. Similar look.

i actually do like how the sole looks. lows (so called round toe shoes) definitely looks better than those boots tho.

 

why you didn't like derbys? only reason i havent bought them yet is that they are cherry color lol. then again... i dont have anything but black shoes...

Round toe shoes had a pretty boring shape from what I remember. The leather looked flat and dull (kinda expected at that price).

Just looked cheap in general. Not very substantional and too lightweight.

 

I haven't got the hooded jacket yet. Will probably take another week since I will send back the first package as soon as I get it.

I tried on the hooded jacket earlier and I think it's slightly large, but not really to the extent that you need to size down. I bought another short coat last fw, and I'd say this is maybe 2 cm larger in the shoulders.

this?
post #245 of 847

Yup, that's the one. It's really tight in the shoulders on me, but in the hoodcoat I had some room. (for a knit perhaps) redface.gif

ty both, appreaciate your help. :) although I ordered those cherry round toe shoes and navy hooded wool jacket as well lol. if shoes aren't as nice as usually or jacket don't fit, COS returning is free

 

these black lace ups are my fav shoes by a mile. of course they're not best leather on the market but I like the shape. hopefully round toe shoes will be fine

Probably too small for me but I'll wait and see what the seller says

Thoughts on the peacoat?

It's 100% wool and has a minimalist look. I like. How about quality and cut though?

post #253 of 847

Got my stuff today.

 

Hoodcoat is very good. The wool is nicer than expected but the lining is a bit flimsy. Cut is great (slim arms, cropped length, big hood). It is a bit snug over my upper back and shoulders, but I'm pretty built in those areas. Def go TTS. A 52 would probably look sloppy on me and be huge in the midsection. It'll probably stretch a bit like wool blazers do.

 

The collarless/hidden placket shirt isn't for me. I think the style is a bit too feminine/looks weird on guys that aren't skinny model look-a-likes.

 

That peacoat looks like it has the same outer and cut as the hoodcoat. I'd say go for it.

wow this stuff looks good
 

post #255 of 847

i think peacoat is a bit boring style (read: timeless classic), but there's nothing wrong with it! and if it fits, you'll be most likely happy.
