    Yessir, Edwardian Dover, double leather soles. Those suckers are...6 years old now? Maybe 7?

    Not sure if I should post this here, but it seems like there's a few casual looks in here, so I figure it can't hurt.

    First time, so pull no punches everyone.

    Barbour/BR Scarf/Levis and a simple cashmere sweater underneath. Thoughts on how to wear layers with the jacket?

    Vis-a-vis the Barbour--not sure quite how I would wear layers--but honestly, I am not the best with layers around here :).

    I really like the jacket though. I am thinking about picked up a Barbour Ashby at some point in the near future.

    And em, looks good, although picture quality could be improved! :slayer:

    For me, pretty similar to the other day.

    Newc and emiristol, good stuff.

    Certified Plan, I cant point out anything specific that bothers me about that fit, its nice, but it is a tad bland. I think you need some texture or some color contrast in the pants, to elevate the look.

    thanks, stitchy & newcomer.

    yeah, the picture quality is a result of a mediocre camera (iphone) in even worse lighting. will try to get something better next time.

    @Newcomer is that the valstar jacket that NMWA had?


    from luxire, in molloy's dark brown donegal tweed, modeled after the eidos field jacket

    I think what is throwing off the look of your jean roll is that they are boot cut and too wide to roll. Also look too wide for that dressier shoe. I would prefer a boot or chukka with that outfit.

    Crockett and Jones and Alden make some really nice chukkas and boots. Alden unlined chukkas are a great casual boot.
