    Thanks guys - the polo comparison is useful. Dressing too juvenile is somewhere I do sometimes slip up - it's probably because I'm conscious it's all too easy for a middle-aged man to look either a crusty bore or a Jeremy Clarkson clone...

    I'll keep an eye out for cardigans that button high - i've got plenty of V-necks but I want something that will layer and can be done up when the temperatures suddenly drop. Uniqlo do the right cut, but only in a heavy gauge which is probably too bulky for layering:

    Any thoughts?

    Just tradition and built up associations.

    Yea.

    Still think MoK would look great in a grey Workaday hoodie.

    I love cap toes, get them
    I like the way the cordovan folds up to the toe, and the toe is smooth
    Looks cool!!

    They really are. and honestly I'd be all about the first one if the hood wasn't contrasting and was integrated in the jacket better / was that silk taffeta on the outside.

    Do you own any SNS Herning? A stark might be just what you're looking for

    I might try a cheap one sometime just to give it a go. I won't invest much though as I can see the pitfalls.

    I think the cut of the Stark is pretty much what I'm after (although it's arguably a bit long), but I'm wanting something much thinner for layering - for thick knits I've got Inverallan.

    All things aside, what do you guys think of this high top? All suede, removable strap, $140.

    playing devil's advocate here, of course:

    amputee jacket? that's ridiculous, unless you're an amputee. otherwise it seems really inconvenient.... and when people find out you have two arms, you'll look like a moron with a one-armed coat.
