^ I've seen the second and third in person at my nearest army/navy store. I don't like the third at all, too busy for my liking. I did like the color of the second (marbled brown), though. It depends on what color you'd be pairing with the most I suppose. Are you buying those online? If so be weary as I've tried two Spiewak coats now in person and each one have had factory stiching issues (a brown McKenzie that had one of the arm holes stitched shut at the midway point, and a peacoat that had bad stiching on the back that constricted movement through the lats). Just a heads up.
^ I'd like those if it weren't for the perforations. I just can't swallow perforations on my sneaks, but that's just me. Have you tried Tretorn or PF Flyers? They have some nice ones that are a better (in my opinion) alternative to Chucks.
PS: Nice to see a near-by (sort of) member around the boards. I'm just outside the King of Prussia area myself.
Converge- I like those as a chuck alternative. The perfs look pretty dope. JPGM had some white spring court perf mids like that and they were nice. I say go for it. andrewryanwallace is right. Charcoal outerwear is easy as shit to pair. Last winter when i had my charcoal inapt peacoat up north, i wore it all the time. Easy peesy
