    THIS IS NOT A GRAMPA COAT!! IT IS AN AMAZING AWESOME YOUNG PERSON COAT!!!

    but i see what you mean about the pants now. i do think though that this coat works well will dress pants, maybe just not these ones.

    No, it's the combination, Stitches. I don't think it will work with any dress pants. Do you have jeans? :)

    Cool socks Stiches but I don't much like the rest. Fit and combo.

    T1, Kjobenhavn doc?

    C. is our native forum down or is it just me?

    thanks, crat.


    lol, no i dont wear jeans for many reasons. most of all comfort. i do wear khakis/chinos on occasion though. either way, i think this jacket goes quite well with dress pants, particularly donegal, and flanel too. i think its really just worsted that is throwing it off.

    i also think you just have to see this jacket IRL to really get it. oh well.

    2nd. The shirt jacket is in conflict with the rest of the tfit. It belongs with jeans, chinos, or cords, not slacks.

    Stitchy, I like the jacket, but my first thought (before I read the other comments) was that it wasn't working with the rest of the fit. Cords would work nicely. A chunkier shoe and less fussy shirt, too.

    thanks, glad to hear that.

    i usually wear it over a v-neck merino sweater, that is over a solid blue oxford. and usually with suede shoes. looks a lot better. i wore it today more out of utility as a jacket. grabbed it from the closet as i was on my way to take the kids bowling. i probably should have used restraint and not posted the pic. ah well.

    Ah, Project Stitches in Jeans... Jeans can be quite comfortable, but you have to wear them longer than twenty minutes, Stitches. :) You have to show them who's the boss.

    Quoting my own post, only because I'm new in here and it got lost in the moderators no-mans land and fell back a few pages before it appeared in the thread...

    lol, good luck. i have had many pairs of jeans, worn for well over 20 minutes. they just are not for me, vut you are welcome to try and change my mind.


    not loving the fit on the jeans, but its not bad. combo on the whole looks killer to me. great jacket and scarf.

    What is this, Stitches? A young, cheerful American who doesn't wear jeans? Ask the SW&D crowd for jeans tips for your athletic build.
