A good strategy is to start on the overdressed/ formal side and then, if necessary, ease off a bit. No-one will disrespect you for doing that. However, if you strive towards office conformity from an underdressed starting point, you will suffer and be scorned. In an office where everyone has a tucked-in shirt, you will always be remembered as the guy who turned up with his shirt flapping around in a sloppy way, like some Californian skate-boarder.
If you try to upgrade from an over-casual initial look, no-one will believe you.

I have the J Crew peacoat and it's great except for two things:

1) I wish it had a vent or two.
2) I got black. Totally my fault - was new to SF at the time still and thought black was the best color foo.gif.

Black is a perfectly appropriate color for a peacoat.

Does anyone know what brand this jacket is? It got stolen the other night. I've had it for so long; I can't remember where I bought it. It had no hood and a square piece in back that hung down. I'm pretty sure it had a grey lion/griffin-looking animal as it's logo, but I'm not sure. A Google image search for "black Express men's jacket" didn't turn up anything like it. This is the best picture I have of it (please disregard my my apparent enthusiasm for fast food smoothies). Can anyone help me? I'd love to get another jacket just like it.

Thanks. I've never owned a pair of flannel pants before so I'm just trying to make sure it won't look like I'm wearing suit pants.
post #18998 of 28352
No way will they look like suit pants. I just hope you're not in a hot climate so you can wear the flannel for winter. I have those same pants in medium grey. I understand size is limited so find something in your size and the color you're looking for.

They are the best pants I've ever worn. Quality is stunning and the packaging from Howard Yount is great shog[1].gif.

True, I'm waiting for BB Boxing Day sale though hopefully can pick up a car coat in grey or something so I can wear with my brown shoes.

No, I'm in Philly. It's pretty damn cold right now biggrin.gif
So they're more of a fall/winter pant?
post #19001 of 28352
Definitely flannel is for fall and winter. Buy it. Mine is really cozy for the Canadian winter. Unless you live in places where there is a single type of climate such as California (hot) I would not try and buy four season type of trousers. Trust me if you get your size correct, you will not be disappointed with the trousers. I have 3 from Howard Yount and plan on adding 3 lighter weight ones in the spring.
post #19002 of 28352
Yes, I was planning on getting another pair for spring if I enjoy these.
I'm hoping the 28s fit. If they run true to their sizing chart I should only have to get them hemmed.
post #19003 of 28352
They run pretty true to size I'd say and are a slim fit. Slim but still appropriate to wear in an office setting. I'm 6'0, 155 lbs and usually wear size 32 or 33 so I ordered a 32. I did have to let the waist out by a little less than 1/2 inch. Let us know how you like them eventually.
post #19004 of 28352
Will do. I just ordered, any idea how long it usually takes to be delivered? I'm not in any rush, (though I'd like to have them before Christmas) just curious.
post #19005 of 28352
Took a week for me. Though for others I've heard it take longer because sometimes he could be quite busy as he runs the business by himself. I think you should have them for Xmas.
