Thinking of buying a Trench Coat less than $200. I've had my eye on this and it seems pretty good.

What you guys think?

Ok, solid advice thanks guys. How about the winter, thats my primary concern. I can take the cold pretty well but i dont think a cardigan will keep me warm when its freezing.

Also im 19 tall and slim build... keep that in mind when recommending proper dress attire. (I dont think i could pull off an overcoat,or trench coat)

I don't think those are SF approved.

Pea or car coat?

yes, definitely something that ends above the knee. The brooks brothers walking coat is a simple and great but ideally id like something under 400. I also looked into something like a schott peacoat and a gloverall duffle coat, i dont feel either is my type. Any suggestions?

If you don't want an overcoat, get a pea coat. You could also look into a field jacket or chore coat if you want something a little more casual.

any recommendations for a chore coat/ pea coat brands? (im aware of apolis for their chore coat and like the style but now they dont have the navy chore coat anymore, only indigo. As much as i like fading i dont want the jacket to fade, thats why i started looking into alternatives)

For pea coats, you can't beat a genuine vintage US Navy pea coat. Do some research on the different tags and check out eBay. It may take a few weeks, but I found a 1950s pea coat in excellent condition for $75.

Maybe it's not the good topic. I'm new here. But I'm looking for this tie. Anyone any idea?

I dont really like the idea of ebay, could you recommend me a peacoat that doesnt have a huge collar/lapels?
Thats one of the reasons im leaning towards something like The brooks brothers walking coat

Pea Coats sort of have huge collars by nature.

I found a vneck sweater from Brooks brothers. Does anyone know what era this tag is from?

1)  Since I'm not a fan of loafers, and live in deathly hot south Florida, what are my options for casual shoes to wear with shorts? I sweat far too much to wear pants during the middle of summer. Keep in mind that I'm in my early 30s.

 

 

 

2)  Similarly, I'm not crazy about button-down collars on casual shirts (I know this may be slightly controversial here). What are some other CM-approved collar options for casual shirts? Pics would be great as well. I'm thinking of button-down shirts more so than pullovers or polo shirts, but I wear those as well.

 

 

Anybody? Saw one reply about just not buttoning a button up collar. I do that currently with shirts I already own, and I'm not crazy about how it looks. I'm looking for an option when I have casual shirts made by Luxire.
