    Ha, yes, I think I was the one who bought it from you - if you can dig up the pic, please do repost as I'm sure it will be better than whatever I can do with my iCamera

    ^ Ditto--that coat is really nice! Trousers need hemming.

    With respect, I disagree. If the weather is such that an overcoat or raincoat is necessary, surely it should cover the knee? I cannot see the purpose of a car coat, as a car will be heated so that an outer coat should not be necessary inside. Upr's point concerning the covert coat makes good sense - a topcoat (spring/autumn rather than winter) could well be shorter, but still to the knee.
    A three-piece suit with double-breasted jacket will be great for the current weather in eastern England - and you show two splendid overcoats as well.

    It was actually a trolling question.

    Allen Edmonds seem to get a lot of love, but I personally hate the way they look, with the huge outsole and flimsy leather that creases like crAzy. I'm wondering what the hype - if it actually exists on SF - is all about.

    And I'm sorry, but those RL's are not your best pair of shoes.[​IMG]

    maybe you prefer more of an Italian profile shoe. AE's are well made in the US and affordable. Compared to what's available in the price range, shoes that are only a bit cheaper are often of foreign (China, India, Vietnam etc) construction and far shittier materials, while better quality shoes quickly get into a price range that is not typical (comfortable?) for a large segment of consumers. A happy middle ground exists and there you find AE.

    As Kid said, the appeal, at least for me, is that they are well-made go-to shoes. I wear my AEs like I used to wear my boat shoes in college. They are presentable and likely a step up from anything else in the room, but I wouldn't think twice to walk into a bar with them on. They make for low maintenance beaters that will last for years.

    Chunky sweater day. This sweater (Black Sheep Wool, England) is uber thick and very warm. I'm a fairly slim guy--39 inch chest, 32 inch waist, but this sweater just billows out ala the LL Bean Norwegian.

    I like the sweater but I think you have some casual vs formal conflicts going on there. The shirt and tie suggest you have worn this to work, yet this is a decidedly cosy, casual and chunky sweater. It would be much more suited IMO to some dark denim, a pair of red wing style or desert boots and a button down with no tie, worn on the weekend/day off.
