In fairness, I suppose if one wears a lot of blue or black jeans, a grey sweater would be a pretty good color choice (although it's not like burgundy isn't also a perfectly fine choice with blue or black jeans).
So, is it sweater weather up in Toronto yet? Down here in Baltimore, I'm still waiting for the chilly autumn weather to settle in, at which point I'll likely head down to Skyline Drive (Shenandoah National Park) and photograph the fall foliage. (I dislike summer, and look forward to the first frost of the season.)

Oh yep burgundy is good too. I already have a few burgundy shoes and stuff though so I don't want to be known as the 'burgundy man' if i get a sweater in that color too. Otherwise I agree that is a good color choice as well.

It's gotten a bit chilly, to the point where you can wear a sweater without a jacket outside. Yeah, I used to actually prefer summer but not anymore with all the warm weather over the past few years.

It's possible that price difference is from where the fabric is made. Scottish wool is supposed to be very good, but as with all things, you can't really say if that particular sweater is going to be good, but I'm sure Jamison did do his due diligence and picked at least a mill to his standards.

I prefer merino as well, it just feels smoother on my skin and also gives a bit more when worn over a bd shirt, besides my local weather can't really justify using lambswool.

Does anyone know of a nice leather hard side briefcase that is slim (2.5")? I have been looking at the Castello Torino Slim Briefcase, but it seems to be hard to find now. Any other thoughts?

three options, 

1) the shirt is too long
2) the jacket is too short
3) looks fine

the second picture is taken at 'handshake' level and extension just for comparison

Thanks in advance!

I like it. Looks great to me. If YOU don't like it you may want to get it lengthened.

What's better to pair with a solid navy suit for a finance interview: red striped tie, red tie with white dots, navy/blue tie with white dots or something else?

Those all sound fine. Just wear something conservative, and you'll be fine.

Very similar to a B-3 bomber jacket.

A little looking around suggests that it may be an ANJ-4, which was a 1943 replacement for the B-3. Among other changes, The ANJ-4 lacks the exposed shearling around the cuffs, replacing it with a hidden wool cuff, which is somewhat visible in that photo.

Here's a nice replica.

+1 no Jodphur with a suit so choose the balmoral boots for suit wear. Choose an open lacing boot for wearing with odd jackets and trousers.

That definitely looks like it given the reinforcement at the sleeve opening. It would be easier to tell if we could see the pocket or hem. I always thought bomber jackets were a little dorky (I had one as a kid), but seeing it in that photo makes me want one!
