Monty Don says I should be wearing suspenders, I want leather suspenders. Leather suspenders are dumb and will make me look like a Brooklyn bartender from 2008. What should I do?

I ask an opinion

Better to buy a medium cut gloverall (mid thigh)
more practical and comfortable



Or a long cut Original montgomery (by the knee)
classic cut good for the cold


I must say that in Lisbon where I live it's not too cold.

Duffle coats look better long and oversized. The short and narrow ones just don't have any verve.

Nay on leather suspenders. Or even regular suspenders worn as a style accessory, rather than a practical thing hidden under your coat and used to hold up your pants.

I agree, but how will a jacket so big on a guy with 1.70m and 62 kg like me?
Won't it look like I'm being swallowed by my coat?
This is my fear, so my indecision between one and the other.


The mid length will look like this

Opinion on this patchwork jacket?
Should be plenty of fit pics available to show you the various possibilities. The only thing I’d worry about is second guessing yourself over whether you should have gotten one of the other colorways, or the feeling you should now have them all, right now.

$445 right now on Farfetch.

Can probably had at 30% off by end of season, and at 50% off if you get lucky when they inevitably show up on Yoox.
Different model but thanks! Those are the Fargo, pointier tip and the shaft is longer. The Quentin is more rounded
