What peacoat is this? I've been searching for a nice fitting gray peacoat.
Underwear or not, a jeans/white t-shirt/boot fit has no place in this thread.
Re context: I'm a first year attorney (pending Bar results next week) at a more casual law firm. I could wear a polo if I wanted to, or even jeans half the time, but I prefer to dress up just a bit more because I'm so junior.
Sterlingwear - this is a 38L and I'm 6'1" ~ 170-180 lbs
Is it the Authentic model? I'm under the impression that the Authentic is the slimmest fit. I'm really leaning towards that peacoat in gray, but I'm leaning towards replacing the traditional buttons with brown horn buttons.Are you normally a size 38?
When I had to wear a suit and it was really hot in Seoul (and most everybody uses public transportation so walking is required), I kept all my jackets at the office and came to work just with the trousers and tie. A lot of people did this...really weird given that most of the time I wouldn't touch the jacket while I was at work. I guess it was "just in case."
Now I can get away with a shirt and slacks sans tie, but often opt to wear a tie just because I like them (the way they look and feel). As the weather gets colder, I obviously move to jackets and cardigans.
And given that he's a Texan (and a fellow Houstonian to boot), heat is also probably a factor (both in his choices and the requirements of his workplace).
Yes it's authentic model. I'm typically 38R so I would buy TTS or long if you're tall & slim/fit. They have great customer service too.
lol, i assume he was joshing.
not sure i agree. also, i think crat looks great.
This is wrong, at least from an MC view. Correct sleeve lenght has everything to do with arm lenght.
Respectfully disagree Just like SW&D can appreciate a well executed suit fit, I'd say that a well executed tee & jeans fit belongs here. Might even belong more here as it's been a classic casual stable for as long as a lot of other stuff we look to for inspiration.
My Mother-in-Law, whose father owned a prominent local menswear shop for over 40 years, considers any men's t-shirt without a pocket to be an undershirt, and particularly white tees.
So I don't think Trompe is trolling as much as he is expressing a traditional viewpoint on t-shirts.
This means, however, that my MIL has seen me in my "underwear" frequently!
