I see a lot of military styles nowadays..but navy looks good.

I recently purchased a  wool overcoat in dark navy for winter, the important thing is to wear what you want.

I was wondering when your Neo-Borbonism and your tailoring tastes would start to come together.

Anyway, you probably want a storm/Ulster collar for the NYC winter. A classic polo coat looks great in tweed, and you can get in a soft Neapolitan cut if that floats your boat (to Ellis Island -- sorry, couldn't resist).

I went for a navy herringbone. It is really, really dark navy. I would even say it is midnight. I think this is a good option for somebody who was thinking of charcoal. I just think it looks like a very striking and elegant coat. If you're not in direct sunlight and you are wearing any sort of business suit people might not notice much difference between a dark charcoal/midnight navy.

I am doing a 6x2 DB, with some sewn in pleats and such. Inverted box pleated center vent. We'll see.

 Foo: what happened to your overcoat from Rubinacci?

Good choice, IMO. My dress overcoat is really a midnight navy.

Is nave yot still considered to be casual dress?

I know that casual has become acceptable in many cercumstances but if I can only have one overcoat it will need to be my outerwear whenever I am in a suit.  I will use the same overcoat when ever I would not wear goose down or a fur parka.

No,  I am just a mortician.  Formal wear is not required but a degree of formality is.

As far as the versatility, I think you're right for most here GC, it is a bit over the top, and non-CBD. I have very few pieces in my closet that ARE CBD though, so I think for me it fits the bill perfectly. Just so you can better envision this, here's the vintage Scabal being used:

Its about 30 years old, from when his dad ran the shop alone.

I'm sure the third graders will be very impressed.
