    sides + raised armholes + darts. My tailor does a great job, hes been a tailor for around 50 years.

    I'm a very hard fit so i've kind of given up. Bought two more gitman shirts (Blue and grey) from the buy and sell for my new job and won't buy another oxford till I meet a competant shirtmaker. (possible in nyc)

    In terms of gray boots:
    NDC

    or

    Fiorentini + Baker

    Price is the same. I like color/leather better on the F+B's, but the NDC's are a better deal and I like the shape more. Anyone have dark gray boots to say how versatile the color is?

    Like with w&h boots, they look normal when worn on the foot. Look at Warlok who wore the w&h boots in his last 2-3 fits. They look like any other boot in terms of upturned toe

    Yeah, I've been thinking about the W+H style when I've been looking for a pair of boots. I like the upturned toe look, kinda just looking for comments on the dark gray color, I guess. Really starting to dig the NDCs.

    I've been eyeing those NDC boots for months, hoping they would go on sale, no such luck. Post pics if you get them.

    Which or neither?

    The Filson is more versatile at less money. The EG is cooler, and I like argyle.

    Have been considering the Filson Mackinaw wool vest in grey:

    Then saw this EG argyle vest:

    Alan,
    id say Filson just because I know how wellmade and substantial it is. I have it in black/gray plaid. The eg route might be more interesting thought.

    Needing a coat for Winter as I don't have one. I live in Florida so I don't want to drop a whole lot on a jacket as I'll only REALLY use it 3 months out of the year TOPS. Found both of these for around 220 shipped each...available in grey and black. Made by Spiewak. Yay or nay?

    Fit looks meh IMO.

    I'm having trouble finding a duffle of decent quality around 300 that offers a good fit. I agree it does look a tad boxy.

    You could investigate the Uniqlo one. I personally don't know much about it, though.

    Maybe the TOJ duffle?

    To be fair you're in Tampa: you need a heavy coat for zero days out of the year. So if you don't find anything no sweat.

    It gets into the 30's and 40's at night in Winter some days. That's REALLY cold to me haha. Thanks for the TOJ duffle suggestion though.
