This reminds me.  The charcoal, mid-calf length coat I mention above, has a turndown collar, like on a shirt.  Is it formal enough to wear with morning dress? White tie? Black Tie?

Hello,

 

So I am a newbie on men shoes. I just hit 20 and want to start learning about real men shoes. I have been search the whole google website and styleforum about where A. Testoni shoes are made from. I have read that it was made from Italy or Morocco. However, the website I am looking at which is Myhabit.com. It shows that it was made either in Romania or Hungary. Does it mean that they are fake or of lower quality?

 

It is also called "testoni BASIC Milford Oxford" which I cannot find anywhere through the internet except Myhabit.com

I only thought about black as it seems to most 'office suitable' with my black shoes

i have a navy suit and a charcoal grey suit.

i do think a grey looks quite nice but i thought a black coat would go better with both suits

 

i looked at a car coat but im not too keen on the lack of design

 

is a pea coat too much for 'to work/office' wear?

 

 

Any other recommended styles of coats for 'to work' wear?

How much does that really matter as long as you don't come in wearing a bright orange sweatshirt?

If it looks formal-ish, then you're fine right? You're not wearing this thing during the day at work.


I think peacoat's look fine with a suit but the fit might be challenging.

I love barrel coats, but not with a suit. With a suit I would wear a long coat.

What kind of collar does this topcoat have? That is, what is the technical name for this style of collar?

Today I wore a tie over a sweater on purpose. Yes, I said it.

I'll have to post a picture later to see what y'all think, but I actually thought it worked because of the color scheme.

No need to post the picture. It didn't work.

Speaking if things that don't work. Lately I've seen a couple fellows around town sporting pocket squares in their shirt pockets. Please tell me this isn't a thing.

It's a thing. It's just not a good thing.

But at least it's better than saggin'. That's a thing, too. A thing to be avoided.

so besides a peacoat, is there any other suitable style coats that look stylish?

I'm pretty critical of how I dress and try not to look ridiculous without intending to. Although I totally forgot to wear a tie this morning...
In any event, I wore this with tortoise shell glasses.

Pass or fail?

Nantucket Reds in November, cuffs, collar, and tie outside sweater?

Is this a real question?

My two cents. I really don't like the tie over the sweater as a stand alone look, when I saw it with the jacket it looked better. Now to be honest I believe it looked better because it looked like a green shirt with a white collar. At closer range I am afraid I did not find it appealing...not repulsive but none the less not the best look.
