Damnit! I like that one too. That silk is sold out on Sam Hober and they're not sure if they'll reweave it. I let it stay on my wishlist too long.

Nothing wrong with the larger, but neither would be my first choice.

I totally agree with you and can envision very nice outfits like that. Currently I don't think I feel comfortable enough to wear such a combination however (bow ties are seldom worn in the Netherlands and are mostly viewed upon as being totally outdated).

I think that's wise. If you're not sure, pay attention to that indecision and don't buy the coat. Above all, you have to feel comfortable in your decision, and it should be a warning sign if you feel you have to convince yourself that something's okay. And you're on the right track re your "basics" comment. Get yourself some classic odd jackets first--a blue blazer, camel hair, etc.--and then begin to branch out into more unique items. Good luck!

For some reason I've really warmed to stripes

Also will probably get:

If it's the color you're after, I just gifted my boss a J.Crew silk tie that looked like the one on the right.

top pair for me.

Same. Top pair.

Where can I get some good quality cuff links inexpensively? Think like $30 or less. I had to loan a pair to my dad for my wedding, and, as he has several French cuff shirts now, (I think 3) he needs a pair. Toggle back is preferable, as he would never bother with double sided, but rather change his shirt.

Bonus points if I can buy them locally in Vancouver.

+1 on the thinner stripe.

Most any menswear shop (and hundreds of eBay sellers) will have silk knot cuff links. For $30, you could likely buy yourself a few pairs, and a couple of pairs for your father, too.

If you want something a little more formal, Jos. A. Bank currently has "silver" (they're actually rhodium-plated metal, which in some ways might be preferred to silver) knot cuff links on sale for 18 bucks and change. (If you miss today's sale on them, they'll doubtless be on sale again next week.) FWIW, silver knot links are my "go to" cuff links, as they're relatively discreet and understated, while being somewhat more refined than colorful silk knots. I don't know if there's a JAB in Vancouver, but I'm sure they'd ship them to you. Here's a link: http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/Product_11001_10050_100195

Both silk and metal knot cuff links are double-sided, but are at least as straight forward as are toggle-back links, so I can't see that as being a drawback for your father.
