Avoid DJS or "Dad Jean Syndrome."

Thanks all for the feedback. I have several shades of gray flannels and one pair of APC NS, plus incotex khakis in a darker shade (British khaki) so it sounds like I'll have plenty of options if I decide to get it. Much appreciated.

Notorious, what is SR?

How many, exactly? 50?

How many overcoats do you guys have? I only have a couple, but would like to possibly get one commissioned, though probably not before this winter hits. What type of fabric do you use for a cold climate facing snow? I take public transport to work so I'm outside more than just house to car to office to car to house (though I think that would be preferred as I hate winter).

For the flannels, I have six pairs, a very light gray, two medium gray, one darker gray, one charcoal, one very dark blue.

I do not have an overcoat yet.

Sorry, I was making a bad joke about the book.

On a serious note, they're staple pants. I honestly don't have any flannels and it's a serious hole in my closet. I own lined worsted which are great for early fall and all of spring, but I need some better flannels. I got rid of my last pair (that wore out) last fall.

Out shopping today, as the fall clothes are starting to show up, I spied a very nice sport coat by Polo (Blue label)
If was a great fit, but I was hesitant because I couldn't picture what I could wear with it. I didn't get a pic, but I'll give my best description. It is a very country tweedy looking fabric in a dark hunter green, mostly solid, with texture, but no pattern.
Would a dark green sport coat go with various shades of gray? I mostly wear gray flannel in the fall winter. Any other color combinations that would work well? Any shirt tie suggestions?
Ok, now back to talk of food...tonight the wife made homemade tortas, Mexican sandwiches with a mixture of chorizo and black beans topped with avocado slices, queso fresco and salsa, muy bueno.

I usually just make paella with chorizo, or avocado toast. I may need to start making this. Say, today, for lunch.

I have a dark green flannel sport coat that I love for autumn. I find it surprisingly versatile, as I'm very happy with how it looks with jeans, chinos, or my favourite dark brown cords.

There's an Ethiopian joint near my house, but sad to say, I've never been. I think I'm mostly hesitant to try it, as I haven't the foggiest clue as to what to order, or what the food is even in general.

Lot of stews and stew-type dishes. I quite like it. But don't be surprised if there are no utensils.

They finally got their own cuisine. Progress.
