Pale pink shirt, charcoal suit and ??? Tie?
Or is the shirt and suit wrong already?

Red or burgundy tie
post #23718 of 33197

I'm a bit hesitant about red on pink over charcoal... I'd recommend a navy knit.

Navy tie. Done.

Where can I buy a casual unstructured linen/linen blend jacket for every day use here in the Florida sun?

A BB hybrid jacket is the closest I can think of, but I'm not a fan of their fabric blends...

What size do you need?

I recently found an Italian made, French retailed coat, the fabric composition states super "Vigugna", is this Vicuna, a blend or what ?

Vigogne is French for Vicuna; the Latin is Vicugna; and the Italian is Vigogna. But there's nothing called "Vigugna"--it could be a made-up word to indicate some sort of fake, or some synthetic they're trying to pass off for feeling like Vicuna. Vicuna is extremely expensive--like $20,000 expensive see: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323392204579073090614851288.html

 

Is it possible you're reading the "o" in Vigogna as a "u"? Or how 'bout walking into the fanciest retail men's store, or better yet, fabric store in your city and having them take a look at it?

Could you help me identify these boots? This is exactly what I'm looking for for winter.

cross-posted from Allen Edmonds thread:

 

Just got a pair of black shell park aves.  Leather is smooth everywhere, except the captoes, where the leather looks dimpled or pebbled, like the surface of a golf ball.  Is this something that will go away with wear or buffing?

 

Here is a pic:  the dimpling is much more pronounced in real life.

Many thanks, the label definitely states "Vigugna", its like a hybrid of the above translations, I can,t imagine the actual coat is fake, it,s just too nice, I thought perhaps a blend but now I,m thinking it could be real.

I doubt that will go away unfortunately.

Assuming you don't have a deer bone to hand, try this: stick a good bit of normal black wax polish on the caps (normally not necessary for cordovan).  Put some trees in - whatever you have that reaches deepest into the toe.  Rub the caps in a circular motion, quite firmly, with the back of a stainless steel spoon - a good stiff one.  Then brush off the polish and buff as usual.

 

As long as the actual toe box isn't damaged underneath, it should help smooth it out a little.  You might want to do this more than once for an incremental effect.

 

Let me know how it goes.  If it does something bad, blame yourself for believing the internet.  If it works well, you may thank me personally. OK?

The black or suede?

Kidding. Alden makes nice boots that look a lot like that. I believe you can get them at J Crew these days for about $500. it's a popular style, so there should be multiple options at lesser price points. LL Bean signature has one, regular LL Bean has a Katahdin Iron Works boot that looks chunkier and heavier, but is a nice work boot.
