    Off topic but I am wondering what shoes go with tropical wool trousers in a business casual context. I'm wearing tropical wool cynch pants and matching Andover, with some medium brogues (full wing but quite slim grensons). Worried that Alden long wings would be too heavy, thinking about some plain toes....

    wearing my tw suit with alden longwings and think the chunky profile contrasts well with the dramatic taper and the cropped fit of the cinch pants

    Wondering if I should get a Small or Medium? I had a waxed navy one in medium a few seasons ago, and it was a bit too roomy. Can anyone confirm if this seasons sizing is different?

    thoughts on willy post pants? do you like how the pleats look? too much room in the top box? appropriate to mix and match jackets? are they just as cropped this year as in past years? i want a pair of grey wool trousers but have had my doubts about the wpp fit...anyone have their own fit pics...fwiw, tbb styling is not helping my decision...https://www.thebureaubelfast.com/shop/6390/grey-worsted-wool-willy-post-pant

    cheers!

    I don't own the willy post trousers, but I have tried them on a few times. I just never cared for the fit and the way the pleats looked with the top block. They are not cropped on me though. Cotton Dockers has posted a few fit pics and I think he wears them well.

    How does the Chester Coat in Dark Navy 20oz Melton Wool fit? I'm stuck between a small and medium.

    I love 'em, but you are slimmer than me so it's possible there could be too much room in the thigh/seat area (I recall @mbaum perhaps mentioning this?). Personally, I don't find that much difference between the fit on these and similarly sized fatigues.

    Any of you guys have experience with the long scarves this season? Specifically, the black/grey broken twill one? Weight, hand, durability?

    Cheers,

    Can't say I've handled the scarf but we have that clothl in the Work Shirt and it's pretty substantial. The hand is soft like flannel. I think it will hold up quite well in that cloth.

    That sounds perfect. I like flannel, though I also like rougher textures, like a miltary twill.

    anyone experienced this winter's cinch pants? are they the same length (inseam) as the ss16 version? would love it if they lengthened them an inch or so...

    Can't say i have noticed any difference in length in this seasons Cinch pants than the previous season.
    If anything they are a tad slimmer below the knee.

    Any comment on how well the new Field Parka's hold up to some rain? I know it's just cotton and isn't coated, but given that it has a hoodie, i'd assume it should offer some sort of protection?
