If I needed a smarter warm coat I'd look at the Norwegian Rain Moscow, after which I hanker.

I prefer the first, but both are fine. Contact them. In my experience 32 0z fabric is more
or less the maximum usually available. It served me well in -10 F in Chicago.I don't mean
wind chill.I mean -10 F not counting the wind.

Thomas Farthing London and Simon James Cathcart seem like great brands I've only just heard about.

Seems like they do aim towards the vintage market, but their overcoats and other pieces seem like they can easily work in a modern wardrobe.

Fun? Style requires commitment and hard work.
It took me several days for me to choose the color
of my first pair of Crocs- footwear I adopted for the
regime of sheltering-in with size 4E feet.

Then there's the upcoming "Dustbowl Collection"
In the '30 they called it "Ag- Chic" workwear.

my feeling exactly. while there are clearly 'costumey' pieces, there are also ones which can be creatively integrated with contemporary wardrobes.

What a remarkably original comment.

Anyway, looking through those lookbooks, I think these shots look great. I don't dress particularly vintage, but I can appreciate people who do. Thanks to @duffyfluffy123 for introducing them on here

Some of that reminds me of Leon Bridges' style

My pleasure :).
You could also check out Pini Parma, but its quite similar to SuSu (fashion forward).
I like their raglan coats. Expensive though and seem a tad bit short.

To be honest, many of those clothes are exactly what is coming back into style these days. You cannot tell me that the two on the far right and left of the first photo look anachronistic, or that the third fellow wouldn't look completely different in the streets of NYC rather than an old house.

There's a lot of vintage clothing that can be worn and made to look very contemporary, because it's not too gaudy or exaggerated in form. That sort of test is what I consider necessary to determine "classic" clothing.

At least Pini Parma says that the coats are mid -weight.
Not for Ottawa in January. As has been been noted, they are short.
Here's one from O'Connells that is more traditional and warm:

Thomas Farthing seems to cater to those who wish to play " dress-up":

COLLECTIONS
HERITAGE LOOKBOOK

ALPINE
Spitsbergen
BRASIL,
JAZZ
Hollywood

I can't wait for their Italian Fascist Collection featuring
clothing inspired by Count Ciano and the Bertolucci film
"The Conformist"

Isn't that this entire forum then nowadays due to circumstances? I put on an OCBD and cords for zoom calls. It's a matter of perspective.

The way a lot of this forum has viewed Fedora Lounge audience in the past is likely how most non-Styfo members view this forum.
