I need your intellect on this! Is this a spread or point collar?
could I get some information about this scarf?
I don't know the model or date, or anything. All information are useful!
it was listed as charcoal. and the pictures were accurate. I thought they were just a little dark. I would have listed it as black. anyway it is Hickey Freeman from Barney's and very nice 80 wool 20 cashmere. BUT can my husband were it to Court and what color pants??
Welcome to the forum, donnu. Try asking here http://www.styleforum.net/t/24109/hof-labels-heels-and-nail-patterns-secrets-to-id-the-maker. The thrift thread might also know http://www.styleforum.net/t/9006/the-official-thrift-discount-store-bragging-thread
Hi @dghealy , a charcoal or black sport coat is not something anyone on here would recommend. If you're stuck with it, the best thing he could wear it with is light/medium grey trousers. Cheers.

@dghealy why is a black or charcoal blazer a no go?
why is black or charcoal a no go?
black is very severe and does not compliment many skin tones. It is too fashion forward for most business'. It looks horrible in daylight.
Charcoal (as a sport coat) because it is notoriously challenging to match with anything else. Although a tweed herringbone jacket with charcoal grey or black in it is one of the most versatile things you can own (go figure).
Charcoal makes a fine suit.
thank you so much ! this make perfect sense.
but , what about a glen plaid which is primarily grays?
The particular example you offer here exemplifies one of the potential problems, namely it looks more like an ‘orphaned’ suit coat than a sport coat. Not everyone is bothered by that, but many are.
I really want a linen or linen blend grey glen plaid with patch pockets to wear with white pants in the summer.
