Quick question, what is Horween Chamois made out of? Is it an actual Chamois (kind of like a deer) or some kind of cow?

Navy, charcoal, or black.

No it's just normal leather, just like Kudu CXL, which is just oiled calfskin.

Thanks for the link, always in need of some cheap +J

Can I get some votes for left, right or neither?

 



Edit: I'll be wearing them with tan, gray and olive pants mostly, if that changes anyone's vote.

I think a maroon or burgundy would look really good with that combination.  They're essentially darker shades of pink and so it would add a feel of 'monochratic' to the whole outfit.  Would look really good.  When you are having trouble matching colors - use this color wheel below - it always helps.  Designers have been using the color wheel forever.  Use colors that are directly across from the color that you want to match with, colors in the same slie of the pie or colors that form an equilateral triangle with the color that you want to match with.

 

This helps balance warm and cooler colors, or balances colors within the same spectrum, adding a tint or shade to a color to mix and match.

Assuming the colour you want to match with is red, is the following correct?

 

Use colors that are directly across from the color that you want to match with: green, mint, olive

colors in the same slice of the pie: pink, maroon

colors that form an equilateral triangle with the color that you want to match with: yellow, blue

Can someone recommend the best brand of wool dress coat for about $400, to wear to work with a suit and possibly on the weekends with more casual clothes, such as jeans? I'm thinking a solid navy color works best. I'm 5' 11" 200 lbs. I wear 44R in suits.

I'm thinking about this Brooks coat when it goes on sale. Would that be a good deal for $560?

You can wear a tie with that shirt no problem. the problem is the plaid shirt, WITH the plaid suit. If you have a solid suit I would go with that and it will make picking out a tie easier. A solid wine or a grenadine. Even a blue would work.

It may be a good deal. I never buy an overcoat without trying it on. Companies will charge a lot of money for a very nice coat on the outside, and an uncomfortable interior. I bought an overcoat for around that money once and returned it after the first time wearing it with a short sleeve shirt. I would go to a brooks brothers, maybe a j. crew or something. I would look online for overcoats in your price range and then go to the stores.

 

Navy is a good choice to go with anything, I actually think grey goes better with anything.

Why would you put on a sport shirt to go get the mail, or it you have sleeves rolled up and a number of other things. And most importantly it will speak to the quality of the coat. Please think things through before you post.

I just got an overcoat from indochino http://www.indochino.com/product/The-Essential-Charcoal-Topcoat.  I have two questions about overcoat fit:

 

1) When putting it on over a suit jacket, I find the sleeves tight enough that the suit jacket sleeves slightly bunch up inside.  How snug should the sleeves be?

2) I found the armholes to be fairly low.  If I request a remake for higher armholes, will it be impossible to wear this overcoat over a suit jacket with low armholes?  I have some older jackets which (unfortunately) have low armholes, and I wouldn't want to be unable to wear them at all with this jacket.

 

Thanks
