I’m adding an item to my FW20 wishlist:

A topcoat in this blue Molloy&Sons donegal that Eidos used a few years ago. Please make it happen @spiermackay!:

Would definitely buy such a donegal overcoat. I've held off for years since I rarely have use for one, but a double breasted polo or even a balmacan would be too difficult to pass up.

I've been looking for a long overcoat in such a colour.

Shoes with soles good enough for Canadian weather would be great. I'm just looking for a bit of grip, that's all.
I have shoes/ boots on Dainite, ridgeway, commando soles. All have great traction but on ice nothing sticks. Took a dive the other day when I was equipped with Crockett & Jones Arran boots on ridgeway soles. Iced covered surface shows no mercy!

Anyone have any thoughts on a medium gray sharkskin blazer? Thinking about buying a gray sharkskin suit from S&M but I'd also like for it to be versatile enough to break into separates.

These look great! Kinda reminds me of the Meermin chukkas I had. Is the last too square? It looks kinda perfect in this pic for going casual to business or viceversa.
You are right that they fit casual and business. Two eyelet was a good choice, the color photos more red but they are very much brown, and the standard welt vs reverse welt. Also the rubber sole sold me on them after everything else hit the right spot.

No complaints so far after 5+ wears and they felt great right out of the box

We worked closely with the factory on the development of this last precisely to work both with tailoring and causally. They have a more European influence in the toe shape in that they are sleeker but still are distinctly a chukka shape.

Not yet, they like to tease upcoming jacket in this manner on the instagram story feed. I bet it means it will hit the site next month.

i was looking at the custom suit page,
I noticed that when I clicked learn more at the type of fit section ( Contemporary Contemporary-Neapolitan Cut Slim Slim-Neapolitan Cut)
It didn't work and prompt to input the ID and PW

was that an error on the page?

I’m surprised the suede wingtips don’t get more love. I think they’re great.
