    Got a better picture of that Alva Mac? Something to show the entire piece?

    Loving it.

    Frank makes everything look good. I might be getting one of those. Hard to pass up on sale.

    Also, this is the part where I should probably admit that this week, I've so far eaten probably 1/3 of that huge bag of snacks you brought back...

    The Inglese chambray is *awesome*. Pictured alongside a Stile Latino buttonhole, Drake's tie and Esk scarf.

    Thanks for digging up that photo @jet

    I think the one I have was simply called brown. No fancy name that I recall. It didn't get restocked this fall maybe? But it took some serious willpower on my part not to pick up one of the single breasted versions year.

    These coats are awesome because;
    Pop the big collar for style and warmth
    Deep pockets easy to stuff gloved hands into
    Warm in fall and spring worn over a shirt
    Warm in winter worn over a sweater
    Light, but quilted wool outer is a sturdy and doesn't show wear.

    Frank, you're in Chicago? How warm does that Alva keep you on cold Chicago days with a nice IM sweater say...i.e. how low can one go?

    Yes, Chicago. I've found this coat to be plenty warm with a good sweater underneath and all the other appropriate cold weather items on (hat, scarf, gloves). The way it works for me in really cold weather is that it provides a nice outer shell; the tall collar really helps since you can wrap your scarf up inside that and keep cold air from getting in that way; the double breast works well in the cold since it keeps the front tight; and it's a decent length.

    You aren't going to wear it for a day of hunting in the Upper Peninsula or anything, but over all I say polar vortex approved.

    Yes, it's long enough to wear over a SC. The way the shoulders are cut and the size I have (40, which is what I'd call TTS for me), means that anything with a structured shoulder doesn't fit too comfortably underneath, but it does fit.
