    Well I'm quite sure it's not water resistant and I don't know if the water will actually damage it, but I just HATE the feeling of soggy wool, as well as the smell. I want to really take care of this coat too, so I'm not gonna take any risks...

    Sounds like a good plan, I think I'm going to be pretty careful with mine as well.

    Are you pleased with yours? This is one of the finest non-tech coats I've handled, everything is really solid

    I really like the way it looks, but it fits me a bit strange in the waist area. I think I might be a bit too skinny for it. Arms fit great though. Here is a pic I have in another thread:

    It's just a fairly plain cane I got while in Lagos or maybe Port Harcourt from one of the carving places two years ago. I walked around with it through the airports because I thought it might break in the luggage got a few sideways looks while walking with it haha

    But how is the fit? Is the shoulder seam at the right place?

    Oh yea man I remember seeing those, pretty sure I encouraged you to keep it or sell it to me hahaha. I think it looks best opened, even on a less skinny guy like me (5'11", 157 lbs). Rock that shit hard this FW buddy :fistbump:

    For sure dude, I'm definitely going to keep it :fistbump: Your right about keeping it opened though, which should certainly be doable through much of the PNW winter.

    I actually really like miran's sweater from what I can tell, I'm just not sure if I like it on him.

    edit: shah do you follow me on twitter or are you person in the blanks in your comment? if it's the latter PM me...

    Can you pin-point what it is that you don't like?

    I really like it too....I think I'll get another one in the same line...but I am torn between getting it in charcoal (dark grey) or midnight (navy)

    does charcoal win?

    regarding the workwear/american or w/e comments:
    this is the only thing closely resembling of it that i have left in my rotation.

    last waywt as this is basically what i rotate between during the week and that was what posted yesterday:

    censored out glasses as jet hates aviators (or thinks it looks dumb on most peeps) and pants pulled up too high :fu:

    and this is what i want to essentially wear:

    yeah charcoal wins (navy one is something you'd wear in a 5th grade school photo) but I just don't think i'd like to way you'd wear it, nor do I think it looks as good after seeing the better photo.

    I could have seen like kelv wearing it in a cool way, but I was also under the impression from your first photo that it was just dark charcoal with the stripes making a grayscale gradient. In the new photo it looks like some purple and blue in there or something?

    No no...the one I have on in that photo: That is Black (Colour 1)---with the stripes doing a greyscale gradient, from white to very dark grey...can't really see anything in that awful bathroom light...

    Charcoal is Colour 2---dark grey with multicoloured stripes.

    Midnight is Colour 3--Navy with multicoloured stripes, including red and white stripes....looks like something British Airways cabin crew would have on for Casual Friday flights...but I do like it, but I think charcoal looks better.

    I have Colour 1, I want to also get Colour 2.

    Alright, I have bad comprehension tonight but I still say I like the sweater 1 the most, but that is outside of the context of wearing it with a white crewneck tee poking out of it. You just look like a dad dude (I hope you are) so embrace that and just be a chubby dad that wears sweaters. but don't get #3
