I really hate to hijack this thread, but does anyone know where I can buy a similar jacket? I have been looking for something like this. I thought I found one on ebay, but it turned out to be very different from what I wanted. Once again, I apologize...

No appologies needed. I lifted the photo from Faconnable http://www.faconnable.com The jacket is in Faconnable's upper-end Albert Goldberg Collection.

Thank you. I just found it about two minutes ago. I might have to inquire about it. Thanks again.

Unlike LA Guy, I've patterned most of my everyday wardrobe from the "continental casual" staples. I've added a few pieces of Varvatos during the past couple of years, and I'm slowly trying to convert my closet full of BR slacks to a mix of Incotex and a few odd Zegna and RLPL. The look is definitely not for everyone, and eres on the side of conservative. The compliments I usually receive for this type of clothing focuses mainly on texture and materials (cashmere, antique leather, herringbones and tweeds, and a few accent pieces in lavender/purple). For a more refined, country look, I think the Asprey and Davide Cenci websites both provide great examples. You might also want to check out Coast shirts. If you're selective about the patterns, Coast routinely puts out 1-2 winners each season.

Don't theses storers--Asprey and Davide Cenci--only let millionaires enter the store? Seriously though, how are their prices like? I am surprised there isn't a JCrew equivalent for this continental casual look. But perhaps the whole problem for this look is that the materials and construction need to be extremely high for it to work at all....

If these are your suggestions, than you are indeed right that these are very obvious imitations. Zara and Perry Ellis are nothing like what I would want to wear.
Please do not diss Zara. I have knee length Zara coat and it is so well cut that it looks like bespoke coat. I am very satisfied with Zara's quality as well.

OK. I take back what I said. Zara is the best. Zara is the best. I love Zara. Seriously though, I don't think their look is very continental casual. It's a little on the trendy side, which was why I said I didn't think it was what I wanted.

I agree. But there are hidden jems in Zara..
