OK - while we are at it, I have a pair of brown calf C&J Sydney loafers - rarely worn - with shoes bags and box - size 9.5UK. Need to put them on B&S or eBay but if you are interested let me know.

Summer is coming.

For some reason I have my heart set on this quilted jacket by Charles Tyrwhitt. I think it is the breast pocket I like, making it slightly less country-fied, and the fact that it is cotton rather than poly. Waiting for it to go on a decent sale:

I have eyeballed that jacket as well. Not sure about the collar.

^^ Agree that's a reservation I have as well. It's hard to tell what the collar is really like. Pictures aren't great.

Aussie members,

 

(1) I'm looking to extend my casual wardrobe ('streetwear') tastefully.

 

I don't have many pieces of outerwear besides an M-65 I wear to death.

 

What is a basic collection I could add to a basic wardrobe? a leather jacket? a Barbour?

 

(2) In light of the above I'm looking at buying an A-2 jacket.

 

What are some good entry level brands to look at?

 

Sorry to inundate you all with questions.

It's not entry level, but if you get a horsehide A-2 from The Real McCoys in NZ, you'll never ever need to buy another leather jacket ever again.

A quality harrington? Quilted jacket/blazer?

I don't think a Barbour is all that "basic" myself - stands out a lot. Harringtons are very versatile.

Sure is. And how can you not like it when the name of the jacket is Hurry Home Honey!

Given the vintage iconography on the website we can only assume he's hurrying home after the Doolittle Raid.

Yes, beautiful jacket, great name - but maybe, given the price tag maybe Get Back To Work! would be more appropriate.


By the way, for those following along (esp. those at Suitably Connected) - settlement went smoothly and I am now a proud house owner.

Just superb!

 

Thanks so much Jason.
