I have a bias, strong dislike of purple.

I thought about doing a more casual coat but Ive already had this for about 6 years:




I also have this which is rather eccentric as well, maybe more so.



My third coat is a burberry trench because I can't make rain coats.

I think I may move the pockets up an 1"

When someone says "I don't mean to be rude" watch out, because they are usually going to be really rude.

I was trying to tone it down stylistically with it being purple, but to an extent I think I need to improve at photographing overcoats. Mainly everything I put up is just me with an iPhone and its shot very quickly.

Excellent. What do you call this colour? I've seen it a lot in London and a little bit in Sydney but never got round to looking it up.

The older gentleman has an easy going elegance, the guy with the hat in the first pic, that suit is a disaster.

You're not feeling the Dude or, uh, his Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing?

Is that the cloth? It seems a bit too dark and muted compared to the original.

Yes, it's the cloth in the middle.

This is a great visual of the impact of light and  dark ties.  The dark tie Ethan wears draws the eye to the center and then his face. The other two, less so. My eye focuses more on the area of the shoulder/chest, away form the face looking at the two gentlemen in light colored ties. The eye is always drawn to the highest point of contrast. When it is the contrast of a dark tie against a light colored shirt, people will look you in the eye. Especially good if you are presenting to a group. At least that's the way I see it.
