Fox Bros. - Brown & Green Check SC is now available for pre orders. But at $600, I think I'll have to pass on this one. Had it been sans the green checks, I might actually have considered it. Although a nice touch, they do make it less versatile. The pricing is MTO territory imo. It does look stunning however. And the pattern matching is impeccable.
Yea, idk why but the Moon Black & Red houndstooth is about same weight and looks better to me than this, along with being cheaper. I'd much rather that 😅

Trust your taste, X-Log. Costing more doesn’t make something look better.

I'm also slightly turned off by the green checks. Last F/W's Fox Bros subtle brown check flannel was the perfect cloth, imo

All about subtle pattern's or solid colours. If you get something like this year's FB's I'd find that more people would know if you wore it more than once in a week or in photos, but something like this is more likely to get by with a lot of wear
That's true. I don't line venturing out to much. But having covered the basics (almost, still missing staple/solid browns for S/W) somewhat justifies more bold patterns, imo.

But I guess it all depends on the size of wardrobe your aiming for. I'm not aiming for a minimalist SC wardrobe, so I don't mind having a couple of bolder jackets if they're versatile. This particular brown jacket with green overcheck is quite bold, but not versatile because of the green. It's not that it contains an extra color in the green overcheck, but that the green in itself is loud.

I completely agree but what I especially love about last F/W's Fox Bros is that it's a perfectly executed basic with enough unique flourishes to make it stand out. It's a great rich brown tone that's dark, but not so dark that it can't be worn with dark navy or charcoal trousers. Not many jackets can be worn just as well with the darkest and lightest of trousers. It has a classic-but-subtle glen plaid that only seems to surface from up close. It has a soft hand that just makes it more pleasant to wear than tweed, without sacrificing too much warmth. And its distinctly autumnal, yet lightweight enough to be worn into spring.

Definitely, I mainly am casual most days, but I enjoy the odd sport coat. Just getting my wardrobe started mainly so need solid/subtle pattern SC's for now, along with being on a budget for clothes so mainly wait until sales to justify. I do wish I got the Harris Tweed Check that was out last FW as I really liked it and would've worked well, but as of now may be a chunky cardigan and maybe a Bottoli Donegal SC, depending on what others Rick has up his sleeve lol
