    You calling me? lol
    (and should have said "... in any-thing.")

    On another, but coat related note, how does that felted esemplare parka work in the rain (dancing or not)? Soaking it up like a sponge, would be my guess?

    One of the waxed cotton numbers. You really need to go try them on as they fit very different from jacket to jacket. For me, the road and trail masters are too long on my 5'10" frame, so I went with a more updated, slightly shorter style.

    Yeah, I looooove me a long jacket. Thigh or knee length is my jam. I have to see if I can find a way to try one on, because I would love to get that green jacket for fall.

    I remember the love of charcoal suits + brown shoes combo here from years past, but am I correct in thinking a charcoal suit, PoW wedding tie, and brown shoes to be incongruous? Better off with a black shoe, yes?

    with that tie, yes, especially if at an actual wedding.

    Blue Donegal pants. Yeah or nay? I'm always drawn to blue flannel or tweed pants, but usually refrain because I'm not sure what I'll wear them with. Any thoughts?

    Brown brogue boots or chocolate suede chukkas with more rounded toe, chunky gray shawl cardigan and blue OCBD.

    I like them and have a similar pair (Yount). It is a nice color in the Fall and Winter.

    Any light-mid shade of grey up top paired with brown anyshoeotherthanoxfords

    I've worn this exact fit many times
