better to ruin it now than when you already bought it, right? (sorry redface.gif )

looks great NOBD. if the fit is good i think that would really suit you.

so, how about these? C&J conistons.. they can look a bit clunky in some pictures but having seen them on a guy in a shop they seem to pair well with slim jeans, which is how i'd wear them..

Yes, I have to figure that out. Unfortunately, I can't try them on in a store, unless I drive to Köln or Düsseldorf, which I'm not planning to.

I'm looking for a boot like that, but I think I want a full-brogue. I know some people that are quite happy with them.

peacoat looks nice nobd. do you like the buttons? I think I'd prefer it with navy horn (with or without anchors).

they'd look good with denim for sure. the storm welt makes them look a little extra chunky though. I tried the trickers version in dark brown, but they looked way too big on my short legs.

Feels a little too short (hits exactly at belt height), not sure if I should size up, return, or keep.

Thx, Parker. I'm not sure about the buttons; should see them IRL. No anchors for me, sailor! smile.gif
I might put dark brown horn buttons on it (if I decide to buy it).

NOBD - when it comes to peacoats, I'm much more of a fan of repro style one like Buzz Rickson and Real McCoys with generous collar and lapels, bigger buttons, boxier silhouettes... I feel that those proportions fit the garment style really well compared to skimpier collars/lapels and more fitted chest.

This is what I'm talking about:

^ thanks Parker.. A slightly left-field option for me was the cottesmore which i believe you have.. do you think they're a bit dressy for jeans/ EG-style tweedy blazer, which is what i seem to be wearing a lot at the moment?
post #28587 of 37268
Thanks, gdl. I saw your peacoat post a couple of weeks ago. (Rickson's, right?)

The thing is, I have rather broad shoulders, but a narrowish head, bald too smile.gif. Boxy style and big lapels don't do me a favour, I think. So, I don't mind it looks less authentic—less naval, more city, if you know what I mean. It's a Breton brand though! : )
post #28588 of 37268
yeah, i think the armour lux will suit your overall style better NOBD.
its a little more refined, like you smile.gif
post #28589 of 37268
I don't know if a refined peacoat makes any sense at all, unless you start changing material or shifting the concept altogether a bit more. To me, it looks like the generic mall-brand, Banana Republic cut that you see everywhere. I'm not a stickler for authenticity generally speaking (not sure I really care at all) but in this case, it just looks a ton better. Just my 2 cents of course, in the spirit of the thread.... You could always size down if you want a more fitted look (kinda like the last guy I posted), rather than the more roomy/drapy fit that the old guy and I are showing

I guess the cottesmore is technically a "country boot" for horseback riding (lol)... but yeah, it's more streamlined even tho it has a double sole. I haven't actually worn mine yet, but will wear with slim denim with a blazer and tee. not in a tweedy kinda way, but more of a city kinda way if that makes sense. the more rounded toe, blucher style seems better with the tweedy look. I was just thinking that unless you really want a storm welted boot, you could get a similar style with a single leather sole. I think those look a little more proportional than the super chunk style.
