    I've seen topcoats on J.Crew's website which IIRC are 100% wool.

    I don't know; but really, when it's freezing out, only assholes are going to care what you wear walking into work, I'd get the parka anyway. Warmth over fashion, no?

    EDIT: Sterlingwear has a double-breasted top coat for $400; 80/20 wool/nylon. I've heard good things about Sterlingwear's peacoats, perhaps the top coat will work for you?

    Any ideas for a polyester/cotton combo jacket that has a decent DWR coating and a normal to slim fit? Nau? Patagonia? Prana? Any other brands out there in this genre?? I think what I am looking for falls into the rain jacket/shell genre, rather than the full out insulated jacket. Looking for something like the Nau Acoustic.

    Thanks!

    Switch your shirt for a light blue one, it'll look better with the whole outfit that way if that's all you have.

    Navy or Dark brown for casual wear in the spring/summer? I know the brown will be more versatile, but I cannot help thinking "another brown shoe..."

    Either is fine depending on what you're going to wear with them.

    Wear dark jeans instead of khakis, it'll look better.

    I want to use them as my everyday shoe for spring/summer. As in, "I am too lazy to look through my shoes and find something that matches my outfit, so I will just wear these" shoes. I had a pair of brown boat shoes that served this purpose, but they recently died. Looking for an upgrade. Wondering if the navy will be an exciting change, or a disappointment when I find they don't go with anything.

    I would not wear either as an everyday shoe.
    I prefer the brown color..but not necessarily the shoe.
    I would keep looking for an upgrade.

    Are you set on those shoes? Nothing inherently wrong with them, but something like a penny loafer in brown suede or something similar will work too.

    Will you be wearing shorts or light pants primarily?

    Not necessarily set, I do like them though. I originally thought penny loafer, but feel they are a little too old. I am 24. My work is fairly casual, tshirts and shorts, hoodies even are common. Youngish startup feel. I want to upgrade my own style a bit though, so am dropping the boat shoes, but the new shoe needs to still be in the same vein, ie a quick, running out the door late, goes with anything, and is nice enough but not too nice kind of shoe. Maybe penny loafers are fine?

    I just feel like penny loafers give off a dad walking around the mall kind of vibe.

    I don't see too many fathers walking around wearing penny loafers, most wear ill fitting jeans with shitty yellowed over running shoes or something similar, they look like a college kid. In your work situation however, anything more than a polo shirt and decent dark jeans with "proper" leather shoes is overdressed.

    I think something like a pair of clarks desert boots might work if you will be wearing pants. The shoes you originally showed might give some people the vibe of an old retired man in Florida though. No idea of your new shoe budget, but Bass Weejuns are generally around $100 and Allen Edmonds Kenwoods are $250 IIIRC if you're looking at penny loafers.

    Haha, dark brown sperrys are actually the exact shoes I had that just died. I am actually just trying to upgrade my own personal style, which is why I was trying to go with something a little more refined than a boat shoe. Maybe I will take another look at penny loafers.
