The first one looks like a closer match to your inspo, but personally I prefer the softer tones of the second jacket you linked.

Plus it's 10% cashmere and cheaper than the first (which is 100% wool).

Been looking for navy blue engineer boots, which are impossible as is, but one thats relatively sleek and in horsehide is even rarer.

Came across these:

Wondering if they're a bit too light. Plan on wearing them with dark wash denim, tan and navy blue chinos. Would they be too out there? Only alternative would be to order some Wescos through Bakers and source some navy horse, myself.

Personally don't like blue shoes. Especially for something like an engineer boot, which I feel only really goes with a certain traditional workwear outfit where that color won't work well.

The blue boots look cool but impractical. I think I just like that color in a vacuum

I feel like that's a pro
