    Thank you! Though it does seem that I now have to commute across the continent to get good clothes. Otherwise I get swaddled in fleece...

    Thanks, it is TOJ like all of my other jackets. They have a thread in SW&D and an unofficial website at http://www.templeofjawnz.com. Feel free to mention me if you buy a jacket since the creator likes knowing how people heard about his work.
    Well I mostly meant just the pictures. I look awesome.

    I like the colors, but I think the silhouette is columnar and I can't imagine why that is desirable. Even sack suits don't look this blocky.

    Damn! Well, from my iPhone I thought the jacket looked like Belstaf but the lining looked like Barbour..,
    Nice jacket nonetheless, what model Belstaff?
    Btw, it's a good look on you.

    +1 on model number. Whodini also posted a great-looking Barbour or Belstaff jacket (in the early pages of SW&D's WAYWT thread), but then I visit their web sites, and all I find are a bunch of prominently logo-ed jackets, never the exact thing people are posting here.

    Colors all look great, btw.

    P.S. NOBD, I forgot to reply about the lens. This 50mm gives too much zoom. For instance, these pictures were taken with a tripod from across the room. There's no more space to move the camera away to capture the shoes better, etc. A full-frame camera takes a 50mm and it's like normal human field of vision. Cheaper DSLRs effectively make it into an 80mm, not a 50mm.

    :) I haven't worn loafers since the eighties... Thanks for the socks!





    I know what you mean(t). I meant the 50 isn't a zoom lens, because it has a fixed focal point. :) It's 80mm on my camera as well. For WAYWRN totals I use about 35mm on my (actual) zoom lens, which translates to 50 mm.​

    Thanks. Yes I do want to project a trimmer silhouette, I am having my pants altered, and I'll need some guidance on the jackets. Having pushed up my running to 40 mi/wk, and lost 20 pounds by dieting (shooting for 23 to 28 pound loss), its probably a good time to get things retailored. Fortunately, I always bought my jackets and pants too tight.

    Roadmaster. I have one in black also. Great riding jackets for drizzly weather, and they look fine as part of a casual fit also. The black is a great looking coat, I've had women ask me if they could touch it.. :embar:
