No reason, just looks more interesting that way. I think the best fit so far of the Norfolk has been on Raven. Nice and boxy. It calls for a vest or thick sweater underneath and to be left open with the belt hanging. Thanks all, I wore it today and it is amazing. It is my go to jacket this winter. I had an MJK chambray on with it today and it worked well. Also, I am waiting to get the EG argyle vest to pair with it. I want the EG argyle vests to go on sale at Context! Also, I have a few sweaters and I will post pics with a sweater tomorrow.
