Absolutely. It also helps that the buttons on a pair of chinos or something similar is much smaller. It's the large buttons on the shawl cardigans, overshirts, previous field jackets etc. that really stands out in a bad way.I wish on the more expensive pieces they used real horn. Like on a pair of chinos, yea ok I'm fine with the faux horn. Though, if I am already spending $300 on a cardigan or something, I'll pay the extra $10 for real horn buttons.
Looks great! Especially the corduroy. How does the armhole and sleeve width feel to you? How scratchy and heavy is the tweed?I can share a picture of the new burgundy corduroy overshirt, and the blue tweed overshirt. Both these are mediums, and I'm 5'10" and 163 lbs (I wear a 38 contemp. or 40 slim jacket).
I really like the colours and the thick, soft fabric. There's a lot of room in the chest and waist for me, but I like the length and the shoulder, so I'm not sure a size small would be better. Maybe I'll get it tailored to slim the body a bit, if it feels boxy.
