post #52246 of 52255
I have worn most of my overcoats, car coat, trench coat, pea coat when out doors this winter. I have a five minute walk to an open bus shelter and then a variable wait depending on time of day and bus driver who may or may not have the heating on in the bus. Then traverse a couple of wind tunnels in Civic.

The Mac is good for keeping the wind and sleet out and their is room for a suit underneath same with the trench. Overall the pea coat is the warmest, sitting on the sidelines watching boy play rugby combine it with a pair of moleskins, HC scarf, gloves and wool beanie and you survive, just.

What has been the most versitile has been the LL Bean Field Coat, the cotton weave is akin to canvas and keeps the wind out the best. As for warmth most days I wear a lambswool jumper on colder days its four ply cashmere under it.

I use them (the 100% cotton ones) as undershirts and they hold up really well.

Bonds undershirts are fine. They don't make for great casual tees though which the OP was looking for.

Small 20" 28" 16.5" 19"
Medium 20.5" 29" 17.5" 19.5"

Hehe, we're about the same size (if I recall correctly from Nomad), 36R slim.

 

I just bought Fox's commander in small - (15 wears + a wear in the rain).

 

So one of us will be right :\. I didn't know whether to get a small or medium either. Then again, you are looking to wear it over your suit jacket, which means you'll definitely need a medium, not a small.

Over a suit?

I've got one of these jackets, and they fit incredibly small. I usually buy a size small in these types of jackets, went with a medium in the Barbour and it is still very snug. I struggle to fit anything more than a shirt under it

I thought this was an overcoat, but no, no, it's a jacket.

Apparently it will "...take your formal wear to a new level of sophistication"

 

MJ Bale's design team are a pack of galahs.

Yeeees, saw that last night.

Reminded me of...




MOAR BUTTONS.

Had a retail (menswear) interview today. Got complimented on my fit, she loved the shoes (brown suede tassel loafers, loakes). Went pretty well, l did my research etc. See how we go. Going to keep applying to a few more places though.

That MJ Bale jacket whatever-it-is is, straight up, some of the dumbest shit I've seen.

It's not even the buttons. If it's double-breasted with open quarters, it better be a woman or I'm not interested.
