I love ebay. Totally underrated..
Quote:I am nervous to buy coats on ebay but i don't have $500 plus dollars to buy new ones. Maybe i should try it haha.
Hmm, no, this kind of turtleneck is just right for this kind of look imo. Chunkier, looser would be good with a thicker, more casual jacket.
I also think the "rule" EliodA mentioned is a good rule of thumb; afterwards, one can deviate a bit, depending on personal preference etc.
The problem in my experience with buying suit or sport coats on ebay is that it's not sufficient to know your own ideal measurements, it's also necessary that the seller know how to measure properly. A surprisingly percentage don't.
Seller feedback is very useful in such circumstances, but of course it's not infallible.
Yes, that's very important.
Before I became an old vintage man I used to wear black or white shirts without a traditional collar. In the neck I had a silver button, one with a small diamond from my wifes earclip and one with black enamel. Today I tried them on for the first time since october 2010. The shirts was much too big, so I have to order smaller shirts to use these buttons again.

Pretend like someone has "should have been a suit." This describes a third of my outfits anyway
I tried to wear this jacket with a bolder shirt. The belt is black watch. I didn't wear a vest/sweater today and it wasn't that bad.
I can't abide the shirt, @An Acute Style . I like the colors you choose, as usual, but I wish the shirt was more casual.
