    Thanks Timbaland! Just want to clarify that you mean by "works well" to include that it will not darken the leather to the above boots?

    I'm 21 with 2.5 years left of college. Am I too young to rock wool trousers and shell cordovan? I feel like I'm an old soul.

    Does anyone have experience with CM topcoat sizing? Are they tts or do they run small? I do not have experience with buying topcoats nor do I have experience with club monaco fits so I kinda have two variables to worry about.

    Usually I am either a 42L or 44r in suit coat size. The problem area for me are the shoulders and arms. With the 42L, the chest fits nicely but the shoulders feel cramped and so they look bulgy. The 44r fits nicely in the shoulder but the chest is too loose.

    I measured the shoulders of a nice slim fit coat that is 44r and the shoulders are 19.25 inches. Should I buy a 42 or 44 topcoat? I dont plan to wear with suits, but I do intend to use with lambswool sweaters.

    Does anybody have experience with "washi" paper clothing? I wanted to buy a devoa jacket for winter but then I discovered that it was made of washi paper cloth. Is it durable enough to withstand a bit of rain without discoloring? Any advantages or disadvantages to washi?

    Sorry misread your post. LP will definitely darken the boots. The darkening will lessen as you wear it in. If you want something that won't darken the boots you need something else. I think snoseal fits the bill.

    So I want to get a nice black Bomber Jacket for a nicer price.

    And I want to avoid the usual bulky fit. I know Bombers are like that, but lately I've checking out thrift stores and all I can find are bomber jackets the perfect size to hide SMG's under them. No, I don't want it that bulky. I need something thinner.


    Any suggestions?

    Browse this forum for like an hour.. you will see why that kind of stuff is trash. It is childish and makes you look immature. Check out the WAYWT to see what people wear here. Your perceptions will change.
