    Ok #4 it is! Order placed.

    Thanks a lot guys.

    @Monkeyface I have almost the same spec with little waist suppression, swelled edges, wider sleeves (just realized i need bigger sleeves) and 4.25 inch lapel with moderately high gorge.

    All jokes aside @in stitches , I'm wearing a pair of AE Daltons right now and I'm pretty sure I'm going to sell them.

    I've worn other boots and shoes that look so much more refined and clunky than these do to the point where I feel like I probably won't enjoy these very much for having them.

    However, the eagle county boots look really good, not just for AE, but in general. Some of the MTO's on the SF thread were really gorgeous. The last is one of their sleekest, most euro looking lasts, and will make for a good boot. Now to polish off and sell my daltons...

    No. It's a grey worsted wool jacket and the pattern screams suit to me. There are very few suits where the jacket works well as a separate outside of more casual things like linen or seersucker.

    +1 on the above.
    I too havr observed that trying to make a suit jacket into a sc usually fails. It appears SFers can easily spot an orphaned suit jacket.

    Kind of what I feared at the back of my mind. Probably hold off on this altogether as I need sc's more than I need a full suit. Cheers, guys.
