What do you find won't with the cardigan and the shawl here? Is it the pulling on the cardigan buttons?

Get rid of the cardigan or the button shawl.

 

For that fit, get rid of the cardigan.

Pulling is one thing and also it seems like too much things are going on especially when both shawl and cardigan are heavy weighted materials.

Actually, Bedford plus shawl cardigan is my favorite layering for fall imo.

Thanks for the feedback guys @sungmineyoI love just the shawl collar and the Bedford as well you could make an argument that the color of the cardigan along with rest of the fit is off, tho

@pe3brain There's a saying in our industry that some outfits" look like a bag of balloons". When constructing an outfit, a lot of aspects come into play. Tone, texture, weight and element are some that play out with what you've experimented with. In regards to tone, the color of the cardigan is not wrong but the weight and texture along with the beefy shawl, make it look like you're trying to hard to make that Bedford an outwear piece. If it's the look of a cardigan under the Bedford, go for thinner non shawl or a sleeveless cardigan that I wear a lot to pull off that Harvard professorial look which is so common around here. You could then add a knit tie or bow tie if you want to complete the look. Definitely remove the button shawl and get yourself a nice ancient madder or wool challis scarf to pull off that treatment.

Thanks Drinkwaters, thanks for the advice! I recently bought the shawl cardigan and felt like exploring some new outfits with it. I'm not huge on the Harvard professor look, but I'll keep that in mind in case I ever want to go for that look.

@blue peter

You should consider Dayton service boots, I know you said you were mentioned you were looking for boots. Personally I think they look best with EG, Alden look too formal imo, Alfred Sargent kelso would be good too.

And another these Lou Dalton X Grenson monkey boot are awesome, really cool detail but also refined.

Anyone can help with sizing for the workaday utility jacket? I'm looking to get the reverse sateen in olive but not which size should I go for. I'm about 5'11" and 33 waist, slim/medium build.. Should I go for M?

Regret not trying it when I saw it at Oi Polloi in London few weeks back...
post #2970 of 3590
If you are a size 40, go for M. If a size 42, go for L. It is very boxy, but designed that way.
