What are some online stores that sell brown boots similar to http://www.barneys.com/Shoto-Combat-Boot/501531080,default,pd.html?index=3 or http://www.barneys.com/Buttero-Lace-Up-Boot/00505001550238,default,pd.html?index=2.

 

I was considering those two, but unfortunately, they don't have them in my size (I am a size 7D). Any recommendations for a similar boot are recommended as well.

Is there a thread explaining sport coats and suits? I know there is one for shoes and pants. I am looking for one that goes into detail about how I can determine the quality of a sport coat.

Personally, I think the stitches should be removed, but the pockets shouldn't be used for anything larger/heavier than a ticket stub. And ideally, shouldn't be used at all.
However, to the extent using a jacket's outside pockets can be tolerated, I tolerate it far more readily when we're talking about, say, a casual sport coat, or even the ubiquitous navy blazer, than when the jacket is part of a suit.

I shove my hands in my pockets all the time. It's frequent enough and mindless enough that I didn't even think of it until you mentioned it.

Yeah, that has decent odds to deform pockets over time, if it's not an old wives tale. Even if it is true, the flaps are there to hid the sagging (part of the reason formalwear isn't supposed to have any- everything is supposed to be pristine, and obviously so), and clothes are meant to be worn. And yeah, nothing looks better than an old tweed coat that's perfectly broken in to your body and how you use it. I haven't had any pockets deform on me yet (though a few pairs of jeans suffer), but I won't be terribly saddened if they do.

Search for the corcoran jump boot. They make a full range of sizes.

Or just google "brown combat boot". And don't be afraid of the genuine article.

A sales rep tried to sell me a 38R sport coat yesterday, what dimensions does the wearer of a coat of this size typically have? He said that is my size because of "how tight" I like my clothes. In my opinion he confused "tight" with fitted.

My dimensions

5'11.75"

182 lbs

40" chest

Can't really tell anything from that but a 38 sounds too small for those measurements.

Well normally a 38 " jacket is aimed at people with a 38" chest. shog[1].gif

These days many younger guys consider the traditional 4-inch chest allowance hugely oversized. With the shrunken look in, a modern coat tagged 38R might have a chest measurement of less than 38 inches (fashiony/trendy stuff) up to 42 inches (old-school conservative styling). So the salesman might not be far off. You could have been standing there in a coat with a 42-inch chest and 18-inch shoulders while he was trying to sell you a smaller size with a 42-inch chest and 18.5-inch shoulders.

I'm a true 38R by traditional standards but have coats tagged up to 42.

If this was a Men's Warehouse or similar type sore, then 38R probably would have worked fine.

So I need a tie and a pocket square for it - What do you recommend? The rest of the guests are not strict formal worn.

If the suit is Navy Blue and the shirt has blue in it, as shown, I would go for a contrast.  Yellow or Pink would contrast really well, though, ideally not striped.  If you have a yellow tie with geometric designs (e.g repeating elephant patterns or something similar), I would go for that, or a solid yellow or solid pink.  If the tie has a pattern, it would be ideal if there is some blue in the background of the tie, but if not, any tie with yellow or pink as the dominant color that is NOT striped would contrast really well with this outfit.  You could pull off a stripe but it would be a tougher look to pull off as the stripes would have to be widely spaced.

 

Always go for contrast in both patterns and colors.  Thats why a different type of pattern, e.g a geometric patterned tie with a color like Pink or Yellow that firmly contrasts with the blue would be great.  As for the pocketsquare, I think white or a light grey would be fine given that the rest of the outfit will look bold with the Pink or Yellow tie contrasting with the suit and blue shirt.

Can a pocket square be worn with a patch pocket sport coat?

Yes, it can. What is it about patch pocket sport coats that moved you to even ask?
