    From Brooks Brothers. I saw it in the shop - it has a great hand.

    I like vests because they allow free movement of the arms, and they are warm. I would only wear that one on an autumn day when it isn't going to rain.

    I don't know that I could wear a suede _down_ vest. A suede vest, yes; a down vest, maybe, but a suede down vest seems like a mutt to me. A down vest is ultra-casual, something I think of to keep me warm while camping or backpacking. Suede says business casual to me and I don't know that the two mix well.

    Nice looking vest--if you like it you really should get it.

    it looks a lot better than its description. my first thought was something a Dolce & Gabbana model would wear alone.

    I like it - a lot! A great fall look with cords, a sweater and chukas.

    I saw that vest at their outlet store. It makes a great layer under a coat for cold days.

    Stach, do you remember by any chance what it cost? It's $400 at 346.

    It was 50% off either $300 or $375, I can't remember. It was at the Atlantic City store last week. They were showing a saddle/chamois color but there might have been the dark color too.

    Thanks! It sounds like a sample color that they didn't put into stores/catalog.

    That brown vest goes really nicely with the model's skin tone, and the blue sweater.
