    yea it depends on the rest of the fit but assuming you have a slim fitting peacoat and jeans a pair of slim black boots would be best IMHOTBQH

    Edit:

    With UNsanforized denim, after I give it an initial hot soak in order to shrink the denim. Can I expect stretching after that?

    I don't know what the first part of that is supposed to say, but soaking removes shrinking, not stretch. Expect 1-2 inches of stretch, 3 in extreme cases. And then a little bit of shrinking/stretching again when you wash

    Uniqlo has a few for $50: http://www.uniqlo.com/us/CPaGoods/itemcode=069088 I imagine they fit a bit smaller than Lacoste, but navy is the closest thing they have to black.

    Uniqlo's +J down vest looks nicer than that one imo, though it's $100 and stocks may be running low by now: image. I have a +J down vest from fw/10 and while it's not a really high quality piece, the fit is nice and it keeps me warm.

    Land's End makes some cheap down vests but I don't know about the quality and fit.

    If you are *really* looking to save money, are into that sort of thing, or have an adventurous lady friend who enjoys it, thrift stores are just starting to throw out their winter stuff now, including vests. It might not be baller, but last week, for instance, I copped this new $1400 vest from Loro Piana. The total: about seven bucks.
