That is a very nice fit except this swedish military jacket. I had never understood, why the people in the german Stilmagazin make such a hype about this jacket. In my opinion it´s completely useless in the classic men´s wardrobe.

 As mentioned before, 100% cashmere is very delicate and will not serve well for a casual, dressy coat. People tend to go for blends. You should be OK (the garment will be more wearable on a normal basis) if you go for blends. The only two things I don't get about cashmere coats is: 1. you can't feel the cashmere directly against your skin, so why bother (thus, it is just some stupid, dorky status symbol...?), and, 2. a high quality casual coat made of luxury fabric seems like an oxymoron to me. Each to their own. Hope this helps.

 

lol  guy's on the wrong forum :)

 

Never had trouble with pilling.   Cashmeres about  warmth for weight

@ Anden I really like your 'low contrast' pic, (and the navy on navy from the other day too) - you have a good habit of putting together well fitting items that aren't screaming for attention but make for a very cohesive fit.

Very kind. Thank you!

Are these authentic Swedish military jackets or a remake? I would like some more info on this.

Continuing the march of three-piece suits for me for this week. Yesterday evening's entertainments (a members' viewing at the Museum of Modern Art) was skipped, due to a combination of fatigue, cold, and light snow. This evening, I am due to attend a members' preview for the re-opening of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, an event to which I am more resolute in attending. The invitation said "festive dress" - I believe what I'm wearing might qualify.

Suit - Paul Stuart
Shirt - Hilditch & Key
Tie - Charvet
Cufflinks - Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Braces - BB
PS - Robert Talbott
Vintage watch chain
Shoes - Harris, via Barney's NYC
Overcoat - BB
Scarf - Fortnum & Mason, London
Hat - Selentino, via JJ Hat Center, NYC

1,5 -2 years ago a ebay vendor offered many of this jackets. I think it´s authentic from the 70s and maybe the swedish military get a new model and sold the old stock. It seems the jackets were stored for a longer time, because many users of the Stilmagazin reported, that the jacket had a musty smell and how  to wash the jacket to eleminate that smell.

I almost bought a chocolate brown, DB, and 100% Cashmere Hugo Boss jacket; but backed out at the last minute. I read that the fabric isn't durable at all.

Here's some thoughts on cashmere jackets from other users:

Chech on check: check.

I like that jacket, Braddock, just not with a suit and tie.
post #11399 of 43963
I like braddocks jacket and the contrast it provides for the suit.

It almost treats the suit as just any other article of clothing, which is pretty awesome.
