post #61846 of 87407

I'm hoping the dapper gents on this thread can help me with some fall shopping. I'm curious about what jackets you guys are wearing your Aldens with--in both dressy and casual situations. I've wanted to add to my casual wardrobe and have been considering getting either a Barbour (e.g., the Bedale) or Belstaff (e.g., Roadmaster) waxed cotton jacket. For dressier occasions involving a blazer or a suit, I already have a couple Burberry trench and chesterfield jackets. A Barbour store just opened in my town and I finally got to try on their stuff; it looks to be of solid quality. So yay or nay on the waxed cotton look? Prospective Aldens to be worn would include shell boots, indy's, alpine grain, ptb's and lwbs. Thanks in advance for any help!

Crosswound, I'm asking because my wife and my male friends already make fun of my "fashion forward" shoes and colored socks. I want a solid, functional fall jacket, but not one that's too in your face. Expansive, but not grandiose is the look, I think...

docalden2013. all the examples you listed are great. I have a brown waxed speedmaster that looks at home with just about every alden i own. I would also like to throw out barbour x tokito tweed collection. great balance of style, function, and craftsmanship. As a blazer/utility hybrid I like Luciano barbera cotton car coat in a green canvas.

Barbour is good. I picked up a Beaufort recently in black but may return it for a Bedale. I've worn a Liddesdale for two years, it is one of my favorites. I have the olive and have considered navy or black as well. All go very well with Alden shoes of all kinds.

Not sure what those jackets look like, but take a look at Best Made as well.

Doc, to compliment your Burberry top coats I would suggest a traditional three-button Harris Tweed houndstooth check sport coat, without elbow patches of course. I find mine to be warm and extremely comfortable, and they look great when one has a tie on. They're tough, classy, and always appropriate for a city/country gentlemen physician such as yourself, even those who have Koi ponds. Textural fabrics like wools and linens enhance the look of shell cordovan and suede shoes or boots. Just a suggestion.

I have yet to pick up a pair or those, need to finish destroying my plebian Indys first wink.gif

I wonder how my suede MTO Carminas will handle gardening. Let me go see...

i use my tabacco chamois indys as hiking boots. just this past week i climbed up half dome. i think once i retire that pair, ill make the next ascent with the cigar indy biggrin.gif

Suede is great. itll hold up over the long run but I just cant tolerate how suede seemingly is a magnet for dirt stains, water marks, etc. Yeah itll come off but you have to brush it off. on the other hand, water marks, stains are a non-issue with calf and shell as most liquid and debris rolls off

of course not. If anything blue collar and I are on the same page. I appreciate blue collars posts of him wearing his $700 aldens to a job site, etc.

and what would make you think it was a cheap shot?

^ I've got these incoming. Do I need a suede belt or can I get away with cognac, walnut or tan calf? I'd like more of a dress belt, not too casual. AE's Player's Belt is on sale, but might be too casual, not a fan of the buckle.

Considering this one from Rancourt:

Any thoughts?

Since folks always seem to enjoy photos of #4 boots and I had good light in the office today. (With Epaulet moss rivet chinos.)

My shell comes off and the work boots go on before I turn a wrench, however.

Hydrauic Oil and ravello does not mix.
