    To me, jacket looks to boxy, and the heavily padded shoulders doesn't help. Some gentle tapering of the trousers would be nice too. Shoes aren't to my taste at all, but regardless, they're far too casual for a suit imho.

    I think it is about time that we do another Friday Challenge at SF. Therefore I took the liberty to create the Album Cover Challenge.

    I do realise that it could be a little tricky but on the other hand I have given participants a lot of freedom in how they want to interpret the challenge. The challenge is open both to CM and SWD entries.

    I know that there are many music fans on SF, now it's your time to shine!

    Thanks, good to know. Now if I can just figure out sizing, I'll be good to go.

    The jacket looks great. How heavy is it? Similar to a Barbour Beaufort? I've been thinking of getting the Filson jacket for a couple years since Barbour jackets have comically short sleeves; I haven't been able to find one to try on and it seems like they're long/tall are never in stock. Also, were you able to find it on sale?

    Where did you score the Astorflex? Any local Aussie sellers? Found one place but they wanted $100 USD to ship to Oz :/

    I just checked End as I know they carry Astorflex. And it looks like it’s $25AU for shipping but free after $300. Hopefully that wasn’t from where you checked.

    I have yet to pull the trigger since I never saw a pair in action but Gerry is very convincing.

    I have two Barbour jackets: A Bedale beater and a Beaufort in good condition.
    This is about the length of the Beaufort, but fits trimmer. As you noted the sleeves are longer.
    The waxed cotton in the Filson Mile Marker is just a bit lighter, it seems. The Filson moleskin collar is luxurious when turned up.
    I picked up the one and only that happened to show up in my local Nordstrom Rack. Just my size (regular medium) in the color I preferred. Filson calls it “Otter Green.”And yes it was on sale!

    I just checked Nordstrom Rack's site and they have Otter Green on sale for $199. The only size left is mine: XL. I probably need an XL-Long but I'll give the XL a shot thanks to NR's free shipping and returns. Thanks for the information!
