Your store is great, lots of stuff I like. I haven't seen anybody talking about that multi color Oliver Spencer jacket but I really dig it. If anybody has bought that I'd love to see pics.
Thanks! I agree about the crazy tweed jacket. I think it's really cool

I dunno man, I really like the envelope pockets. I think they make those coats.

As unbel said, these are quite warm despite being unlined. The material is washed so fairly dense.

It's a "warmer" grey color but I don't see any green in it, either in person or on my screen

I am thinking hard about the Camel one. How do you think this would dress down? I feel like this can be worn as a business casual jacket, but I guess it is hard to tell without actually trying one one. The single breasted model looks like it is definitely more on the casual side of things, but it is difficult to tell.

Also, do you recommend sizing up? I am regularly around a 42R, but I am definitely a pretty athletic shaped person.
Stitchy and DLjr already chimed in but I agree. To me that is a much easier business casual or casual coat than to wear over a suit. It would take a certain dose of swag to wear a Casentino coat with a suit in a business setting (at least in the US)

Hi gents;

2 pairs of Vass austerity brogues arrived for me, in 43.5 and 44. Help me decide which size to keep!

44 - left foot slight heel slippage, right foot fine (right foot has higher arch than left). Both feet close laces fully.

43.5 - No heel slippage, slight V on both lace closings, toes a bit cramped when I put my weight on each foot (not painfully so, but enough to register)

What I'm afraid of is the 44 expanding a bit and getting too large. Thoughts?

@mezentius Tough to say but I wouldn't expect much stretching. I'd say that your decision depends on what time of the day you tried these on. If it was early morning, I'd say 44 because the pressure on the foot and toes of the 43.5 will increase slightly trough the day.

If it was late in the day, The 43.5 would work best.

@gdl203 Could you bring the Ts(S) jackets, especially this one: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/shop/index.php/clothing/jackets/navy-charcoal-cut-off-two-button-jacket-1993.html , this pair of Heschung boots in sizes 9.5-10.5:http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/shop/index.php/footwear/boots/taupe-suede-malko-brogue-boot-1547.html,  and the boiled wool Oliver Spencer blazer, to the trunk show, assuming that those will still be around at that time?  Thanks,

 

Fok.

Thanks for the advice guys, this was very helpful.

I would go with the 43.5. In my experience, my Vass shoes have all become less tight over time. This is just personal, anecdotal experience. My suede have not expanded, but the leather ones have, slightly. If they feel a bit tight, try wearing some thinner socks as well. That always makes a world of difference for me.

And for the final question... what color for the Casentino mwink[1].gif

   thanks . . . . close enough.  It should get the job done.

I grabbed the brown Casentino DB coat. I've never seen this fabric in person before, but it looks pretty interesting. Hopefully the size I ordered works out.

@clee1982 the db Casentino would be the warmest of the 3 overcoats. The Esemplare parka would of course be better protection from cold, wind and rain all around. It's also longer.

How about if I just compare on the casual wear side, which would be warmer? Also just by measurement Valstar looks quite short (like your typical varsity jacket length). I just want the heavy duty stuff, riding bicycle/motorcycle is not really a concern
