Stupid question: would the beige Farnese woven belt be a good match for the Buttero off-white sneakers, or does belt-matching matter at all with sneakers?

IMHO belt/shoe matching is just distracting with any lighter colors.

Regardless, buy belts from NMWA.

Sure, it matters.  But you are not looking for matchy-matchy, in general.  You want to match saturated (deep) colors with saturated colors, or washed out colors with washed out colors.  If something has a grey cast, you want the other to have a similar grey case.  If something skews towards the cool blues, you want the other to also skew that way, instead of skewing red.

I think just as much about matching my belt to my shoes as I do matching my tie to my shoes.

Quite.  Combining, complementing, even contrasting.  But matching would be a bit much.

With the hood (and the tag, oops):

 

 

Without the hood:

 

Without the hood, full-length:

 

Without the hood, full-length, from the back:

 

The coat is a nice fit. It is warm too, despite not being too bulky. Just standing in it indoors for pictures got warm in a hurry. The sleeves just fit and I have long arms (I'm a US 42L wearing a size 52 in this coat). It is a short and close fitting coat, but that is how it is described on the site and the measurements show it as such. I really like it a lot. It goes without saying that the construction is top notch.

 

My wife thinks the hood is too much and will probably ridicule me if I wear it, which is one of the reasons why I like that it is easily removable. Personally I like it on, but I have quickly learned that such things are best left for when I am not toting around a handsy 10 month old.

That's only a concern when he matches in the other direction.

In case people weren't already aware, the Inglese shirts are ridiculous. If you're in the market, buy immediately.

I have one on the way. Assuming the fit in right, there may be more behind it.

Yeah, Greg pointed that out. I was so blown away by them that I was depressed I do not currently need shirts. Just amazing.

There were definitely a couple things that weren't on my radar that now are on the top of my list. The Oliver Spencer boiled wool blazer was pretty fantastic. It was tough leaving that behind, but I have a feeling it'll end up in my shopping cart soon enough.
