I've been having jackets nipped and tucked by fly-by-night "tailors" who proceed to butcher the lining while leaving me with a (still) poor fitting garment. As I read more on the subject through the stickies (thankyouSF) I realize there's far more to it than just opening the back seam and pulling in fabric. Any recommendations?post #13554 of 307363/15/12 at 9:18ampost #13555 of 307363/15/12 at 9:26amQuote:

I have never seen such a treatment of a camp moc design. It just looks strange- to me, they're boat shoe equivalents. The first is the strangest, the second two at least use leathers a little more suited to the design, but the last and structure still wierds me out.
This is what a camp moc is supposed to look like:
That aside, buy 'em if you like them. But the europeans keep (IMO) butchering classic american shoe designs. The english did it to penny loafers, which I have seen before, and now the Italians are doing it to the camp moc. A similar version of the bean boot must be in the works...post #13557 of 307363/15/12 at 11:45ampost #13558 of 307363/15/12 at 12:57pmQuote:Originally Posted by Trapp
Hey all - I'm looking to make an investment in a versatile wool coat / jacket that will look good, keep me warm, and serve me well for several years. Something clean and classic would be nice. I'm more interested in value than concerned about actual cost (willing to lay down some dime for the right coat).
I'm looking for something that meets the following criteria:
-For casual city wear. Will only be worn with denim, usually with quality brown leather boots.
-Not a peacoat: I already have 2 nice old kersey wool peacoats
-Gray or navy
-around 31-34" inches long or so (about the length of a size 40 Barbour Beaufort, or a bit longer, if that helps) that covers the rear but stops well short of the knees.
-don't want a cropped coat with a waistband
-don't want a long coat or top coat (too dressy, annoying to sit and drive in, generally not as utilitarian as I'm looking for with this jacket)
-preferably with vents
-will consider lined or unlined. My priority is to find a quality wool shell and the right cut
-by 'quality wool' I don't mean cashmere or anything with a fancy finish--i loved the tight-knit kersey wool of old peacoats
-I'm 5'9" and 185 lbs and wear a size 40 suit (but will never wear this jacket with a suit)
Years ago as an undergrad, I wore and loved the J. Crew University Jacket because it was warm, easy to wear, had generous pockets, and looked somewhat respectable. I'm essentially looking for an "adult" version of that coat, if such a thing exists. Better quality, better construction, but equally versatile and utilitarian.
Any suggestions or ideas where to start?

Hi everyone. I found my way to this forum after an internet search for affordable quality dress shoes. Armed with information from SF, I bought a pair of AE Park Avenues. While this satisfies my need for black dress shoes, I still need some brown shoes. I may end up getting another pair from AE to fill the formal brown shoe void, but I came across these shoes from Profession Bottier and at their current price ($110 incl. shipping) appear to be a good deal for casual brown shoes? Although I don't completely believe in the "retail yoox price," a large European online shoe store (spartoo.eu) seems to corroborate their retail value. I did an internet search and the few thoughts on the internet seem 50/50 on the brand/quality (incl. a french clothing forum - thank you Google translate).
I know it's just a picture, but any thoughts on the brand Profession Bottier? overall quality? type of leather and construction? would you buy it?
I would appreciate thoughts and advice!post #13560 of 307363/15/12 at 8:24pm
