And did you consider the houndstooth? The one you have seems to have more subtle grey undertones to the brown and a different weave but a similar tone of brown.

I purchased the jacket at the Suitsupply store in Washington DC when I was there last month on business. I don't remember seeing the houndstooth. 

 

I have worn it 4-5 times in the past month, both in the daytime and for casual evening events. Daytime with jeans would be fine, although I haven't done it yet. I've worn it with brown moleskin trousers, grey trousers, khakis, and tan trousers. 

 

Don't forget that Suitsupply has free shipping and free return shipping. You can always order both jackets and keep the one you like more.

Ok guys I can't believe that nobody here knows how to contact Errico Formicola? He use to be the one of the top tailors for Kiton and Borrelli. He has is own private brand under his name now but it seems there is no way to find his collection in North America.

Yup, you're right.

It's called glen plaid/check, but it was favored by the PoW at the time and the name stuck.

Sorry, gents, but I'm pretty glen plaid is the pattern without an overcheck, while with an overcheck, it's POW.

 

 

 

Hmm. I'm still confused whether it's Glen Plaid or POW.  I also thought it was a POW b/c of the overcheck but couldn't find anything on the internet

Prince of Wales is a specific type of glen plaid pattern with specific colors, or at least it used to be before the term became muddled and applied more loosely.

It used to be rust, cream, and grey with dark blue border check and it was bigger in scale than a regular glen plaid.

That's why it's confusing now ... PoW started getting slapped on stuff that wasn't really PoW so now the terms are practically interchangeable.

Ah, that is where the confusion came from!

 

Glen Check it is! I appreciate the clarification

As I've always understood it, Prince of Wales is a subcategory of Glen Plaid. Prince of Wales requires an overcheck, Glen Plaid does not, but it's still a Glen Plaid if it has an overcheck.

preventing moths...i know its been discussed before but will a garment bag/cedar be the best bet in prevention? i know people waiver on this often.

Any idea where I can get a coat like this for <$350? This is the Hugo Boss Stratus (doesn't have to be the same coat -- similar is fine). Saw it at Macy's, but can't afford the ~$600 price tag. I couldn't find anything similar at Macy's that fell, quality-wise, between this coat and their $100 store brand version of it.

Need a quick quick answer:

 

I have a chance to purchase a Mr. Ned sport coat that would fit me well according to measurements after bringing in the waist a tiny bit. It's a tan herringbone. I also am thinking of purchasing a J Crew Ludlow sport coat in cream that fits me very well as well(tried it in store), but it will need to be let out a pinch in the waist - some creasing. Which one should I purchase? Mr. Ned is known to do a moderately suppressed look, which is what I want and no more. The J Crew is roughly $75-100. THe Mr. Ned is multiple times more. I like the styling of the Mr. Ned(wider lapels), but the J Crew one is less costly. Though, on the Ned, I may have to cut the coat 1" in length to make it appear as if it had a lower button stance; its buttoning point is right where I want it - barely above my navel.

Moths don't like light, so actually storing your clothes in a light place is a good defence. As is wearing everything regularly, making sure everything gets taken out and used once in a while. Keeping all your clothes clean will also help, so make sure everything gets dry cleaned once a year, and brush off dirt, hairs etc, after each use. Having too many clothes, crammed in a dark closet, with a couple of old sports coats at the back that haven't seen the light of day in years, is ideal for breeding moths. Garment bags are not airtight and moths can find their way in, so I would not rely on them myself. Cedar also looses potency over time - you can refresh it with cedar essential oil to get the smell back. Same goes for lavender.

The closet below, that of Voxsartoria, is a good example. Light, airy, not overcrowded, and no doubt all the clothes get taken out and worn regularly, and are kept clean. Everything ship shape.

Vox's closet is the size of my apartment, so it's still cramped closets for me.

haha yeah... he appears to live in one of the more wealthy sections of Boston based on his pics because I know this city inside and out and can tell by the backgrounds - am guessing he has more options and flexibility than the average person.

Yeah, it's pretty amazing stuff. Very inspiring to try to achieve those types of fits.
