There are so many of these out there. It's not an uncommon shoe. Allen edmonds has merlot shoes that will fit the bill. I think there's a webgem sale on them too unless that was last month. Regardless, they have a few of them.

You could start by wearing something not black like navy or grey or even khaki.


Do you wear black suits every day?

Grey is a nice colour, and stands out because black car coats are pretty common.  I have one, and like it, and a black trench, but I also have a mid-calf bugatti charcoal overcoat that I absolutely love (was my grandfather's; can't afford bugatti :P)

 

But, if you want black, I've been mostly happy with my mid-thigh Perry Ellis car coat (it's black, and I like it; nothing wrong with black).  It was a gift, but I don't think it's a very expensive brand.  The stitching of the zipper has come off a bit, so about the bottom 1.5" of it is detached on one side, but that's likely more because I sit down with it closed, and have worn it behind the bench, so climbing up and down from the bench to the floor bends the coat like sitting, and happens dozens of times per game.

 

My next overcoat, I think I want a grey herringbone knee length.

This reminds me.  The charcoal, mid-calf length coat I mention above, has a turndown collar, like on a shirt.  Is it formal enough to wear with morning dress? White tie? Black Tie?

Hello,

 

So I am a newbie on men shoes. I just hit 20 and want to start learning about real men shoes. I have been search the whole google website and styleforum about where A. Testoni shoes are made from. I have read that it was made from Italy or Morocco. However, the website I am looking at which is Myhabit.com. It shows that it was made either in Romania or Hungary. Does it mean that they are fake or of lower quality?

 

It is also called "testoni BASIC Milford Oxford" which I cannot find anywhere through the internet except Myhabit.com

I only thought about black as it seems to most 'office suitable' with my black shoes

i have a navy suit and a charcoal grey suit.

i do think a grey looks quite nice but i thought a black coat would go better with both suits

 

i looked at a car coat but im not too keen on the lack of design

 

is a pea coat too much for 'to work/office' wear?

 

 

Any other recommended styles of coats for 'to work' wear?

How much does that really matter as long as you don't come in wearing a bright orange sweatshirt?

If it looks formal-ish, then you're fine right? You're not wearing this thing during the day at work.


I think peacoat's look fine with a suit but the fit might be challenging.

I love barrel coats, but not with a suit. With a suit I would wear a long coat.

What kind of collar does this topcoat have? That is, what is the technical name for this style of collar?

Today I wore a tie over a sweater on purpose. Yes, I said it.

I'll have to post a picture later to see what y'all think, but I actually thought it worked because of the color scheme.

No need to post the picture. It didn't work.

Speaking if things that don't work. Lately I've seen a couple fellows around town sporting pocket squares in their shirt pockets. Please tell me this isn't a thing.

It's a thing. It's just not a good thing.

But at least it's better than saggin'. That's a thing, too. A thing to be avoided.
