    does anyone have some good places to look for nice-looking shirt-jackets, or maybe unconstructed sportcoats? or if you just have some images, i'd like to see them.

    thanks,

    Check out the ETRO spring catalog.

    I found Bagutta makes these pretty well at a reasonable price.

    found an interesting article in the Robb Report, from last year, about hunting-style jackets: linky

    Brooks Brothers has a pretty nice suede shirt-jacket here, but I'd probably wait for a sale - I got mine, in brown, at 50% off plus an additional coupon code discount, which I thought was a pretty good deal. Discostu usually also has a bunch on his website from a lot of high-end makers, so check those out, too...

    Here's an unconstructed Barbera 'walking jacket" with sport jacket lapels but a shirt button calf. I have a jacket like this in navy herringbone, but can't figure out whether to wear it with a tie to the office, so I don't use it much: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....me=WDVW On those few occasions I've used it, it's for a Saturday urban walk and worn with corduroys or flannels and a wool or cashmere polo shirt.

    some good replies. i am finding some interesting items by googling 'safari jacket', 'hunting jacket', etc. this on is a Willis & Geiger from the lost worlds website: [​IMG] and this game jacket is pretty neat, although the contrasting buttons are a bit overwhelming: [​IMG]

    Luciano Barbera does this kind of safari thing, as does Cifonelli. The latter had one in off-white linen with an orange lining last year.  The question is, when will you wear it?  I find they work on causal Friday, which in pharmaceuticals is every day.

    For a few steps down, check out the Mark Shale catalog.

    Paul Stuart had some nice ones that were pretty straightforward.

    Arnys, one the very best store in Paris, sell its very elegant "Forestière". Worth a visit if you are in Paris. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    How do Arny's shirts compare with Charvet? I am looking for slim-fitted dress shirts. Thanks.
