Help me choose the color and toggles of a new duffle coat
I was going to buy navy, but my wardrobe is almost all this color, camel I don't like, is olive or charchoal a good choice?

Would the toggles choose buffalo worn toggles or wooden toogles?

Horn ofc.

*ninja edit*

Plus those woven straw cords on the wooden toggles have a bad habit of fraying over time.

It depends I guess, the leather fastening and horn toggle is a not as fisherman-y, so it depends on if you like the look. Straw/wood is more preppy

I don't care much what the original model is and what fishermen used in the 1800s.
But do you find wooden tongles more formal? I think otherwise because buffalo worn is more discreet

I think the opposite as well, wooden is far more casual.

Good off the rack shirts for work / business formal? – specifically non-iron or easy-care style shirts?

Looking for some brand recs with regards to off the rack shirts for work / business formal. Specifically looking for non-iron or easy-care style shirts because I’m lazy and don’t want to launder my shirts.

I’m looking for white shirts especially – my blue shirts are essentially filled by Charles Tyrwhitt but Charles Tyrwhitt's white shirts are a bit thin and see through. I’ve had historical experience with Brooks Brothers, but the quality has fallen a bit and I’m willing to try some new brands.

Also - a lot of new "tech" apparel firms have easy care dress shirts, but those are mostly poly materials, and not really appropriate for the office.

Any recs?

This is certaily the wrong thread, and probably the wrong forum - you would be better off asking in either Style Advice or Classic Menswear. On the whole, people seem to like Kamakura (Maker's Shirt) above most, https://kamakurashirts.com/. Spier and Mackay (an affiliate here) are also very good value and their shirts are customizable: https://www.spierandmackay.com/shop/apparel/dress-shirts.html

Then there are lots of custom shirt makers if you want to spend more...

Couldn't find many interesting long coats this season. This looks cool but also like a Lemaire ripoff, Kitsune wrap coat:

Also looking at Tor Ultra Hi 2s. Too rugged for Schneider?
