That's a lovely raincoat @covskin Very envious.
It's not as grey as in the photo, lighter and a little more towards the dreaded beige but with a slight green undertone, somewhat like the Baracuta colour 'mist' but a shade or two darker.

Got it online from a company on an industrial park outside Turin who have a couple in each size. Made in Italy so end of line from the factory?

My local TKMs have finally started getting BB stuff in. Nothing I liked - or that fitted - in jackets, but I did get a shirt. Very pleased with the fit, the look - and the price. I will certainly look out for more.
Someone mentioned viewing TK Max offerings online. I have done that rather than going to the Kingston branch and inspecting the stock. It’s much easier and quicker. I have also noticed Brooks Brothers stuff online. So far no great range of button down shirts or Ivy League jackets though, just clothing featuring the BB label.

I have just put a picture of a BB jacket over on Here and Now. Not Ivy League, but perhaps a Mid-west state college.
I also bought a BB overcoat - it was £200 but this was supposed to be a markdown from £1600. It was lovely material and draped well but the colour - a beige and almost white fleck -made me think of something my nana would have worn. Once that was in my mind it had to go back. I would get the same coat in a grey herringbone in a flash.

Just bought what could possibly be my final pair of shoes, I can't think of anything else that I could possibly need. They are Loake Sovereigns in black, I have the Royals but they are well over 10 years old and well worn due to being in my work rotation of footwear. I have worn them today for work to break them in and to get rid of that new from the box look. I was happy with the price as most online retailers were still selling at £195, the same as the Loake store in Leeds, I got them for £150. Just got rid of my students for the day.

Well I have ordered a few pairs of otc socks from Falke and, as you know, I found the piece of knitwear that I was looking for. So, I have ticked off the few things on my list.

Perhaps another pair of brogues could find a place in my wardrobe. I had a Hoggs of Fife brochure drop on my doormat the other day. Some nice heavy brogues in it - made in the UK. I recall @Kingstonian is a fan. I have never really thought of them before. They seem good value at under £300. Any advice?

@Mr Knightley , I have some sleek and dressier brogues, but I think that The Real Brogue is sturdy, heavy and imposing.
I'm looking for a pair that matches all these requirements (without pouring lots of €€€ on).
I never saw Hoggs of Fife in the flesh but I read good opinions about them.
As you seem to be already well covered in the formal department, I'd say give them a try and then let us know.

At least some of them are made by Loakes. The profile of the Prestwick is similar to the Loake Pennine last and they are also a G, so I guess they are pretty roomy. The box of a pair on ebay say that they are handmade in GB - for the price I wonder if this is one of those where much of the work is done in India but enough is done here for the GB to be allowed.
The Glengarry, OTOH, is compatible in price with the Loake 1880 range, so perhaps that is more GB origin. I wonder if it is significant that the Fife page url says 'British made footwear' but the page itself only says 'Handmade footwear'. https://www.fifecountry.co.uk/british-made-footwear-L17
This dealer is more explicit about British & Northampton made https://www.cherrytreecountryclothing.com/hoggs-bench-made-shoes-boots/
