    this isn't really a pea coat as much as it's a nylon jacket in the shape of a pea coat. search for "nylon pea coat"... I think H&M, Zara or Vince etc has coats such as this. (Just please do not take any cues from the guitarist in that pic! Please!)

    Both will be fine. Generally, I don't like the really deep french blues for wear with coat and tie, but it's fine with the appropriate tie, and the discounted blue certainly isn't too dark.

    Go for whichever you like best. They're both light blues and will be incredibly versatile.

    I think this would look better with a narrower tie. Or at the very least one which tapers more towards the knot.

    Thanks, I'll take a look at those. I am having trouble finding an OCBD shirt that is not treated with the wrinkle resistant chemical, does bean make just a regular OCBD?

    yes... but they tend to be extremely casual and highly patterned. not a "dressy" ocbd, at least not that i've seen.

    Does anyone know about the quality of Murano Suits? I bought a $600 murano suit (97% wool, 3% polyester) for $250. Worth it quality wise? I need it probably once a month.

    Eh... could be - I would say in theory yes. But it really depends on the color/tone of suit and the situation/lighting. So basically its a niche setting, and probably a rare one.

    I could see that with a summer suit -- linen, flax, cotton, etc.

    Or a tweed or flannel in winter. I would say no with a worsted suit, but yes with a rougher fabric such as linen (as Unrefinery mentioned) or flannel or tweed...
