    Great look! What material is that field jacket? Cotton/linen?

    Hey Prof, is there a shot of the jeans? I've been wavering between the Gustin slim and straight fits and I'm curious to see how they look.

    I'll look to see if I have one somewhere. If not, I'll post a pic of them next time I wear them. At 41, I went with the straight fit. That said, I think if I were younger, I'd probably try the slim fit. I'm not a big denim guy, but my sense is that the straight fit is a pretty timeless choice.

    Really digging textures these days and I think I've worn at least two shades of blue every day for the last few weeks. Loving the weave and subtle blues in this work coat.

    I really like your casual outfits. Where do you get those clothes from?

    Just the sweater tbh. It looks like 4 sizes too big.

    That's good to know. It's a Brooks Brothers size medium. I would consider going down to a small, but (and this is just personal taste) I think it's within the range of classic sweater fit. Also, at my age (41), I tend to avoid going with clothing that is too form fitting. Don't get me wrong, I'm in great shape (I workout 5-6 times per week, 9% body fat, 6'1" 157-160 pounds depending on the day). It's just that, as I get older, less is sometimes more if you follow me. I'm here to learn though, so I can be persuaded that I need to go with a tighter fit in the future. Thanks for the feedback.

    Neh, shoulder and sleeve are fine. A little baggy round the belly. Not a huge fan of it though. Navy uni cardgan would be better. Shawl or so.

    Agree, it is a bit baggy around the belly. Then again, I kind of like a bit of a slubby look with cardigans, but I may need to rethink that. Thanks for the insight. The fit of my casual rigs is definitely still a work in progress!

    Definitely not "four sizes too big". That's ridiculous though for the record I am not a fan of it either (don't care for any patterned knitwear really).

    Are you buttoning all of the buttons on it though? If so, don't bottom the bottom one, which may provide a bit more drape and get rid of that big of bagginess. Personally I don't button the top either.
