    My "winterproof" jacket is a 1980s Swedish navy parka. I look like a homeless vet in it but so far it's been good to -17 F. Not bad for $2.50.

    I have a 1946 Swedish army greatcoat. $10. I can wear just a t-shirt underneath in sub zero temps and be perfectly warm. Also it looks almost new.

    Might be time for a new coat for me, too. I think I'm to skinny to pull of those double breasted Swedish coats, though. Peacoats are also out, because I need something that covers my butt to be comfortable. Hmmm

    Sidenote. Got two pairs of Uniqlo ezy jeans. Super comfortable! Almost like wearing pyjama pants.

    Typically the trendier the peacoat, the shorter and lighter it is.

    From what I've seen at most half of it? And as I'm also occasionally on a bike with my coat, that's a recipe for a cold ass.

    I feel like they've always covered mine, but I have a small torso and a flat ass, so maybe that's it

    Get a second peacoat and tie the arms around your waist like a belt. Problem solved, butt covered.

    All my peacoats have been the giant durable winter coat variety and always covered plenty, one of these days I wanna grab a lighter maybe single-breasted one for more fashionable occasions.

    My girlfriend's parents want to buy me a suit for Christmas

    I believe they know a local tailor

    I don't currently own one, and don't have much need, I could have maybe work one to a wedding reception last spring and maybe to a renewal of wedding vows ceremony a few months ago

    If I am going to own one suit, what should I try to get? What material? What color?

    Charcoal wool suit would be my recommendation. It's dark but not black, which makes it suitable for pretty much every occasion, and while wool suits can be heavy in the summer, you don't want your only suit to be seersucker or whatever.

    I'd recommend not patterned, but you could theoretically get away with something light. Generally speaking, single breasted two button is the most versatile, but if you have a preference for otherwise, it's your suit. I'd also recommend British style, or maybe American, but definitely not Italian.

    This is all going to add up to a pretty plain suit though. Yeah, it's versatile, and that's good, but as you said, you don't have much need. So it wouldn't be entirely unreasonable to go with a more stand-out affair. You still don't want to go too out there with it, but switching to like, a bright blue or an oxblood, incorporating a more serious pattern or texture, that sort of thing, that can still leave you with a fairly versatile suit that you'll also get compliments on when you wear it.

    Something classically stylish instead of whatever's currently fashionable. So probably something in a very dark non-pinstriped blue, with a single-breasted three-button jacket in the highest quality wool they can afford.

    No, it's no good for peacocking, but if it's cut real nice and made of quality materials it'll still look good in ten years, whereas that violet corduroy monstrosity will be out of fashion by next week.

    Navy or charcoal if you want one versatile do-almost-everything suit. Wool is going to be the best material to go for. Single-breasted, 2 button is going to be the best all around, relatively modern style while still looking pretty classic.

    Yeah, dark blue or dark grey is best for a first suit. Agreed with straightzi on British style, two vents and notched lapels. Although the lines are a bit blurry and some elements of Italian suits like less structured shoulders are fine, too, I think.

    Regardless of style, having a fitted suit will make you look good. The most generic department store suit can look great if it appropriately fits your body with just a bit of tailoring.

    Also, good wool doesn't automatically mean heavy. Depending on your climate, mid- (or even light-)weight may be most versatile,

  • chrishallett83chrishallett83 Amazon: shorturl.at/giJSV Steam: shorturl.at/ftCLSRegistered User regular
    Oh yes indeed, you want the highest-quality wool fabric you can afford, but in the lightest weight you can get. That way you will be able to wear the suit in Summer with no more than a light cotton shirt underneath the jacket, and also wear it in Winter with a vest under your heavier cotton shirt, the suit waistcoat on, and a long coat over the jacket, and some form-fitting thermal pants under the trousers and a nice scarf around your neck.
