    About time to get a new winter coat. The eternal question: single or double breasted?

    maybe a noob question... i was thinking of picking these up (pic below). Questions:

    1. I only have the low versions, do the high's fit similarly?
    2. I've never worn high tops (I know I know), are they any less comfortable or more restrictive, etc in terms of fit/style?
    3. Most important, I'm concerned about the color. Is this blue useful? I can't imagine wearing them with blue jeans... and even if I think of the W+H khakies in olive or brown, I'm not so sure they'll pair up... thoughts?

    Go with the Large, with White Mountaineering most people have a tendency to size down... don't! it will fit weird. Just wear your normal american size and you should be good. It's all supposed to fit a bit looser.

    Blue sneakers? Meh. They're like the burgundy pants of footwear.

    If you're looking for hi-tops, I'd suggest looking for something else to get your fix—there's better looking stuff out there. As for comfort, it really just depends on the shoe. This has become standard advice in the past few years, but it bears mentioning that you might want to futz around with Yoox if you haven't yet: the shipping/return policy is great, so you can try some different things on and just send back whatever you don't want.

    I think you said that once before Jet or at least something similar when last year I bought a pair of burgundy twill Yigal trousers. :embar:

    My blue patent CP mids are awesome, I don't know what you guys are on about blue shoes.

    Those W+Hs though, are pretty meh.

    That is going to be a good look, might have to do cord cut offs and blue db's with it.



    Is it just me or does it seem like most of the posters in the TOJ thread, never have owned clothing before?
