    I don't like quitted vests, but the rest is awesome with very good fit

    Today is not very casual

    Disagree about the tie. V-neck sweater with a jacket and no tie is a pretty classic look. I do agree about the pocket square, though, as it seems out of place here.

    I agree a V-neck or cardigan sweater with a jacket and no tie can work well, but not if the shirt is french cuff. French cuff requires a tie IMO.

    Missed the french cuffs. Agree they seem out of place in a no tie sweater fit.

    French cuff shouldn't be worn with sweater at all...

    perhaps with sweater vest...but def not with full sleeve sweater.

    I have no problem with the FC shirt in that context. The links, however, could be simpler—and smaller... I'm biased, though, because I have only FC shirts. I keep thinking I'll try some barrel cuffs, but I can't pull the trigger.

    I'm just unsure what's going on in WT's photos. In the first the jacket seems very long with a low buttoning point. In the second it seems very long with a high buttoning point. In the third it looks fine. I have no issue with the links, beyond colour, and the dogma that they should only be worn with suits and never with button down shirts (if it is). I think the square is also fine - if a little flamboyantly displayed - and the moulded-sole shoes are OK - even if a little more casual than the rest. All in all, if it passed you in the street you would think it was well put together and, like Chulillo, the chicks no doubt dig it.

    I must be the only one who dislikes it. It looks like you are wearing a small jacket and this doesn't look good at all. It is neither a sport coat nor a cardigan so I don't really understand its purpose. Granted, it did look good on Greg for some reason, maybe because he had the right size.

    It does seem quite polarizing! So far, IRL, it has pretty good reviews. It is definitely a neither fish nor fowl type of piece. Personally, I like it, but I understand why many might not!

    Greg is wearing his oversized, mine is more TTS.

    Are you intimating that it is not the right size? It certainly fits on the shoulders, sleeves, etc. And I am being serious, of course, I always welcome criticism.

    Here is another pic from that day.

    I can understand the feelings buttoned though, it is a bit tiny. Honestly though, it almost hits the bottom of my butt.

    A shoe is also neither a sport coat nor a cardigan - still has a purpose... It's a knit jacket - a softer, more casual piece than a sport coat. I think it's the right size but right now, it looks like it is sitting like a feather on Newc's shoulders, almost pulling back - it needs to mold a lot more to his shape and shift that balance to the front. In other words, it needs a good, strong tug on the lapels/front.

    Also, don't be afraid to pop the collar up and see how you like it like that.

    I don't know anyone whose butt ends a few inches higher than their crotches.

    I didn't mean to say that it has no place in one's wardrobe. It is an interesting piece and I like coats that are totally unstructured and fit like sweaters. I think the real issue is that it doesn't fit him well, one issue I see with the fit as you pointed, it doesn't sit right on New, maybe it does need to mold on him. Also agree that it would look better with raised collar.
    Apart from this, the coat looks too short on him and the fact that he is wearing dress pants is exacerbating it. Maybe it would look better worn with jeans, very casually and with raised collar.

    I wore it popped the other day, I liked it. Again, I really enjoy it, and (if my experience with other knits serves as an example) after a dozen or so wears, chances are it will start to drape better, fit a bit looser, etc. I think every knit I have ever owned has had a bit of a break-in period. And I agree Greg, the balance is a bit off... I am just going to keep on wearing it to be honest. It is a very nice, comfortably piece, that I really enjoy wearing.

    The fabric certainly has a good bit of give.

    And I like it unbuttoned as well, much, much better.
