You're probably right. My Jcrew peacoat will have to be fine for now, I guess.

What's the difference between an overcoat and a wool coat?

post #18738 of 37396

Overcoat is a style, wool coat just says what it's made out of.

 Burgundy.

bit dark isn't it?

post #18742 of 37396

No, the standard interview advice here is a dark suit, white or light blue shirt and a dark conservative tie.

 

Were you planning on wearing some sort of bright tie like a turquoise?

If you insist upon a black suit, I would recommend a black and white / silver macclestefield or glen plaid, and a white shirt.

i just thought a black suit would call for a lighter tie

What I meant to ask was can a wool peacoat be considered an overcoat?

I wouldn't wear it over a suit/sport coat. Maybe a bridgecoat.

Hey Noodlers, would love some advice on a dark gray flannel PRL suit I came across today in the local consignment store. Not thriftstore cheap at $199 but it's a 3-piece. It's got forward pleats, which on a suit like this doesn't bother me, but I'm not entirely sure about the length because it's cut to a traditional length (also it's labeled a 42R but it fits my 38/40R frame at the shoulders IMO) and most of my jackets are cut a little bit shorter (similar to the WIWT pic included).  I do like the masculine silhouette that this suit gives me and the lapels width is quite nice.

 

In short the question is - is this too long/big on me? In terms of other issues - legs need some slimming and the back may be a bit messy (there's a vicious roll right underneath the collar), neither of these are pictured but are being considered with respect to ballooning tailoring costs. Relevant background: At the moment I have two worsted suits, staple navy and mid-gray from Spier & Mackay. I start residency in a year and a half and I have no idea where that will be. Apart from my residency interviews this fall it's not like I need to wear a suit very often for work. I could get away with the two I have but this was lovely.

 

I've included a shot of WIWT as well as the suit jacket with the lighter pants I was wearing for better visualization of the length. Colors were adjusted for visibility so they may not be totally accurate (my donegal jacket looks almost fuzzy).

I'm asking here because I've been following the thread more or less since its inception and I've learned a lot/have a lot of respect for the regular posters in this thread. If people think it's inappropriate for me to pose this question here I can move it.  Thanks in advance!

I'd say craaaazy long, sorry.

The Eidos donegal can easily be worn over something as casual like a knit, slim denim, and side zips. It's unlined and the fabric is quite casual (was a little to retro bus seat upholstery for me personally). Assuming NMWA bought the same one bloomingdales carries.

Not unless its really long. But then its a great coat, not a pea coat.
