    How is this remotely formal? It's basically a varsity jacket.

    looks like one can wear it over a dress shirt, thats as formal as i need it to be.

    i find my toj summer to be great as a "formal" piece so im not sure i want to go with the kva. it doesnt look too heavy for winter days at 0 to -10. anything colder ill use the cg.

    Uh........not at all. A dress shirt would look terrible under that. Also, if you showed up to any formal occasion with that on, others will find you underdressed. If you want something formal, get a coat. As for the Jil, if you have trouble fitting into a shirt with a 21" p2p, I think the sweater will be tight on you.

    Heutchys were pretty hot during Fall 08 iirc (they were used for the Shipley&Halmos show or smthg) and the they dropped off the map. And then they were on Gilt.
    richard chai has several pair releasing with this fall collection. canvas, suede, shoes, boots, sandals, etc.

    i was looking at all of those actually. the blazer seems heavy, is it outerwear?

    the belted coat is nice, and the simple zip coat is nice as well. i bought the apc as a supplement to that one[​IMG] and we all know how that worked out..

    huh?
    Yeah but with the kva hooded coat they actually have your size. The one you picked is fine if that's what you're going for. Personally though I would go for the hooded coat- a lot more versatile/wearable.

    I have another KVA jacket in the same fabric (90 wool/10 cash) and it is definitely not a formal fabric. Feels nice in fall weather though, kind of like a blanket.

    Thought it would be fun to pick up some color. Is this over the top? from our B&S.
    It's an awesome sweater - whether you could pair it with your stuff is another matter entirely. The detail around the neck is fantastic.

    This is true of just about any reasonably slim cut outerwear though.

    Looking for some shoes online and found a pair I'm considering now. What do you think? To be worn with black or blue skinny jeans or with slim fitting khaki chinos.
