    So do you feel that Mist is generally wearable anytime one would wear khaki? My hang up on Olive is that in F/W I wear my olive Barbour all the time. Adding olive trousers to that just seems unworkable. I already have the camel shade and was looking for something equally versatile.

    To me, the mist is the moleskin hallmark. It’s a shade not often, or ever seen in a twill, corduroy, or wool pant.

    There is a few shades of mist, but each year across several brands it’s a colour synonymys with moleskin.

    If it fits the wardrobe, go for it.

    Of course tan and brown pants are always easy to wear and have a place in any closet, and you can’t go wrong there.

    First of two Southwick EFF sportcoats arrived. The fit is spot on, and the fabric is insane.

    I think both are great but I'd probably start with the caramel. I think that is the absolute staple color to start with for cords, no matter what width of wale you are going with.

    I have the khaki tweed and it's a great color and has a bit more character but I still think the caramel is more versatile, especially if it's going to be your only pair of tweed trousers.

    I'd personally go with 2131 Khaki tweed. It's a little different, but not too different to make it hard to wear. You are much more likely to come across a nice caramel cord trouser again, either from Mike or somewhere else.

    Frank makes a good point about being able to find the caramel from Epaulet or elsewhere later on down the road if you decide to go with the khaki first. IIRC, when Epaulet first offered the steel grey tweed and the khaki tweed corduroys last year they sold through the available material on both. It sounds like the khaki tweed was able to be brought back this year but no more steel grey. Who knows if you'll be able to get the khaki tweed in the winter or next fall...

    I guess if I'm going to rep mist, I better back it up. I wore my pair today and here are some photos.

    First, mist vs. olive in less than ideal lighting conditions. This is my mist moleskin pants next to an olive moleskin shirt jacket. There is definitely contrast, but combining the two is pretty earthy. Too much for me for an office setting. I'd be comfortable wearing it to do something more outdoorsy. The poor lighting takes away some of the green tint of the pants, the picture is best at illustrating the contrast between the two colors, not accurately showing both colors. MistVsOlive.jpg

    The next photos are what I'm wearing, outdoors, indoors, trying to show the color under a few lighting conditions:

    Kickstand - That is a fantastic outfit!

    Where is the peacoat from? Mine is about a decade old, showing its age, and I think somebody has been altering it to make it slightly smaller each year. It may be time for me to replace it. I love the lapels on yours.
