    LOL. That is a really interesting reason to stop wearing items that are so classic.

    Also, that's a nice looking blazer. What is it?

      Haha, I see your point. But jokes aside, and focusing more on the mac than the trench, do you really think it is constrained to such specific weather conditions? That would make it very limited.

      I'm still interested in such a coat, hence my curiosity.

        My question: If you wear a t-shirt under a casual shirt, does that mean you don't unbutton two buttons? Isn't this sort of not dappered looking, i.e., a little nerdy?

        Just asking. I mean, I don't see how you handle looking confident and, dare I say it, sexy, if you have to wear a t-shirt and you don't open you shirt past the second button.

        Fer instance... visit the men's part of the J. Crew site and pick out any shirt pose there and tell me it would look better if the dude were wearing a white crewneck t under his shirt. Not saying you gotta rock it like the model--they mostly wear the stuff way too tight and slim. But even so, how would you rock any of those shirts, even the most conservative of the Crew's OCBDs, with a t under it?

          I like the coat style but I think it is limited to rainy weather. It would be like wearing an LL Bean yellow rain parka when the sun is shining. It just doesn't fit the context.

              I second Duvel here. It should at least be overcast or damp.

                Yes. Overcast or damp works. If the sun comes out, take it off and fold it over your arm and you'll still be cool.

                  I find it to be more comfortable wearing a fitted undershirt under a dress shirt. Closed collar (with a a tie) = round neck, open collar = v neck. I also cannot stand seeing people's white undershirts under an open collar. #1 pet peeve.

                    Yep. Probably my #1, too. Personally, I feel uncomfortable in any kind of undershirt. I like to feel my shirt on my skin.

                      I prefer to wear a singlet/tank-top/A-shirt during the summer and a V-neck during the cooler months under my button-up shirts, both casual and dress. It isn't a case of not liking my collar showing but rather that when I once bought a new set of undershirts, V-necks were on sale, the crew-necks weren't, and I've stuck with them ever since. Their collars are also less likely to be stretched out of shape and lay flatter.

                      I also agree that going with heather grey instead of white helps keep them from showing through on the lighter fabrics.

                      Regards,

                        The lapels are too high for my taste but it does look like a nice casual blazer. I wouldn't wear it to work.

I don't see the point of it, because it just makes you hotter, and I think it looks ugly as sin to see the collar of a crewneck at the top of an open (no tie) OCBD or other casual shirt. It breaks up the natural v produced by the collar of the open shirt. To me, also, it's underwear. You don't show your underwear.

                          The most horrible infraction, something I see way too often, is a t-shirt under a polo. That's like wearing a t-shirt under a t-shirt. It didn't even look good on Bond in Casino Royale. (Vienna scenes, with the long-sleeved dark polo and light-blue t under it.)

                          I don't buy the anti-stain purpose either. If you're sweating so much that your undershirt is getting wet, then your shirt is going to as well. And maybe if you didn't wear the undershirt, you wouldn't be so warm and then you wouldn't sweat so much.
                          I always wear a white v neck under dress shirts. I stand by my pit stain comment. I've got a few v necks that have yellowed over time because of my funky pits. They've served to protect my dress shirts from suffering the same fate. Plus, I wear slim fit dress shirts and I'm afraid people will be able to see my nips if it's cold

                            I wear light grey v-necks underneath my shirts. I've slowly been switching to Uniqlo's airism v-necks.

                              Even when buttoning the top button? I usually go with crew neck when I button the top otherwise you may be able to see the v neck outline.

                                Yes, light grey undershirts are not visible underneath white fabric.
