    That's a good point. It's nice insurance to be able to return for free. I'm terrible with returning online purchases so unless I'm close to 100% certain about something I won't buy sight unseen anymore.

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts when you receive them and seeing some actual pics.

    The Turner barely makes it out of the house but does get a lot of wear in the house.

    Mr Off-Topic Guy checking in. I stopped by the Abercrombie & Fitch by my office after work today to inspect a wool coat they have.

    Here it is.

    I should have taken more pictures of the fabric. It’s a large houndstooth with khaki, olive and brown. Based on looks alone, I like it. I’m sure the construction is not the best, but it seemed good enough that I’d consider buying it for 30% off or more.

    Also, my pants are too long. I gravity was playing a part, but I could do with about an inch less in the inseam. The only good thing is that it keeps the wind from blowing up your leg in the cold.

    No offense, but being from a trendy store I'd expect the coat to have more shape.

    You’re right it’s not too flattering.

    I'd pass. You're better than that. <-- Not really sure what that means, but everyone says it nowadays.

    I often think to myself “jet, what would a @donkeyhoatie -style rant about construction, weapons, thread sizes, and hypervigilant bystanders be like?” Turns out: excellent.

    So following my AE CS odyssey, I ended up ordering a pair with their promise of partial refund to match the 40PLUS code from previous sale.

    Was this offered to anyone else? they told me to wait 10 business days after shipping but the time has passed and now I have to contact them again.

    I don’t know why I laughed at this so hard, but damn lol. I just scared the hell out of my cats by shooting La Croix out of my nose.

    Just make sure you end up getting 40% off. 20% off now, and then a 20% refund later is only 36%.

    Happy McTavish Tuesday!

    First wearing of the tan McTavish.

    These are really comfortable. Put me in the “fan of Poron” group. Not trying to start a Poron/no Poron argument. I just happen to find it comfy.

    Paired with a light suit and an autumnal shirt, I think the orange hue works well.

    It is supposed to be loose fitting. Looks good on you - very British. My dear Watson, and all that.

    These do not get enough wears.
