    i prefer the navy, but you should make sure you have some gray jackets, like on that model, if that is what you go with. the brown is too dark a brown for me to love.

    My jacket is more towards a mid-grey instead of the light grey as show in the pic. Will the navy pair well with it?

    @in stitches
    How do you like your Formosas compared to your Zegnas?
    What an original question this is, huh?

    When I tried on the plaid Formosa, the lapel was something that you notice right off the bat. Fabric, I don't know jack about fabric but that Formosa used H&S wool so what more can I say. My Zegnas feel light and silky. The Formosa felt light but not silky. That's all I can say.

    hard to compare really. zegna has a much wider range of models, but the ones i have i am very happy with. though the construction is not what formosa is, i will say that my cashmere zegna top coat has maybe as much handworking as anything i own.

    my rule is, i pretty much never rule out a brand in entirety, i find what i like from each brand that works for me. some brands have more stuff that is my jam, some less.

    id honestly buy the marlows before an omega. all things considered its one of the best shoes out there. takes a helluva time to break in though, its a very thick leather.

    I prefer the VASS Budapester as the best wingtip derby option :hide:
