Is this a true 3 button or a 3 roll 2?

I prefer merino myself. I feel it looks dressier and pills less than lambswool. I don't have too much experience with lambswool though just a Polo sweater made out of it, which may not be the best quality.

Looking at a suit on Ebay.  Is this label for a Zegna suit sold at Saks or a Saks suit that uses Zegna fabric?

It's a real Zegna.

It's a Saks suit that uses Zegna fabric. Far as I can tell, they are half canvas, and usually excellent for the money. I had great success with some of their Loro Piana ones in the past, before I went all MTM. do NOT pay more than $400 for it, and you can sometimes get lucky and find them for about $325 - $350 if you buy 2 at, for example, the off 5th in Wrentham MA, which I would haunt when I lived there.

OK, got ya. But a Jodphur would not look out of place per se with a suit or slacks, no?

They would look out of place, imo.

Interested in picking up a trench coat. Would like to keep it around $200 -- no problem purchasing used. Any brands I should contemplate? My mind immediately goes toward Burberry. The consensus on their fit seems to be size down one from actual suit size if want it to be fitted.

Thanks for the help guys regarding merino vs lambswool. I am going to go with the merino as I can't justify the other being twice as better. It's not like the merino I'm looking at is made in China. I will just get two: navy and grey. That will have me covered as far as knits are concerned as those are the two staple colors IMO.

For sweaters, my two staple colors are navy and burgundy. I'm not knocking grey, which is certainly a useful color, but I often wear khaki chinos, brown cords, sometimes grey trousers, and I just think that burgundy works better with those colors than does grey.

In fairness, I suppose if one wears a lot of blue or black jeans, a grey sweater would be a pretty good color choice (although it's not like burgundy isn't also a perfectly fine choice with blue or black jeans).

So, is it sweater weather up in Toronto yet? Down here in Baltimore, I'm still waiting for the chilly autumn weather to settle in, at which point I'll likely head down to Skyline Drive (Shenandoah National Park) and photograph the fall foliage. (I dislike summer, and look forward to the first frost of the season.)

Oh yep burgundy is good too. I already have a few burgundy shoes and stuff though so I don't want to be known as the 'burgundy man' if i get a sweater in that color too. Otherwise I agree that is a good color choice as well.

It's gotten a bit chilly, to the point where you can wear a sweater without a jacket outside. Yeah, I used to actually prefer summer but not anymore with all the warm weather over the past few years.

It's possible that price difference is from where the fabric is made. Scottish wool is supposed to be very good, but as with all things, you can't really say if that particular sweater is going to be good, but I'm sure Jamison did do his due diligence and picked at least a mill to his standards.

I prefer merino as well, it just feels smoother on my skin and also gives a bit more when worn over a bd shirt, besides my local weather can't really justify using lambswool.
