I have heard that sometimes waxed cotton can rub off on leather seats and cause discoloration but that is very rare from what I've seen.
    Ehh it can happen pretty easily. 50 degrees outside, starts to warm up, throw the jacket in the car, boom 85 degrees inside the car 5 hours later. But maybe that's not hot enough to matter.

There is a sport coat on eBay that I'm considering, but I want to see if I can figure out what year it was made. There is a picture of the label on the inside with something like "Art. Col. 100960-2691" and I'm wondering if I can find out more by decoding those numbers.
      That is the only thread I know of. I forget the name of it and my google skills are failing me...

        I'm looking for a Navy quilted Jacket. There are two Jackets that I like
        The Taylor Stitch Vertical Jacket
        https://www.taylorstitch.com/collect...jacket-in-navy

        And the J.Crew Mercantile Walker jacket
        https://www.jcrew.com/us/p/mens_cate...ebook%22%7D%7D

        The J.Crew is in stock and I can get it for around $85. The Vertical I like more, but it's not shipping until December and its $199.

          Taylor Stitch is above mainline J Crew in quality, and way above J Crew Mercantile, which is their budget line. If you can afford the TS price and can wait until it's in stock I'd go for that one.

            The only issue is that you probably have to post there and hope someone can identify it for you.

              I am looking for a go-to shoe/boot to wear in business casual settings during these fall and early winter months filled with unpredictable weather. Something that looks nice, and won't be ruined if you get caught in a cold drizzle on a fall day. I know it varies by style and taste, just curious what others are wearing.

                  I have a pair of Allen Edmonds Daltons which have the oiled sole but would be better with the Danite sole. It really depends on your budget as to what would be suggested. Rubber wins out in this instance but not all shoes are created equal.

                    A plain toe blucher like the Allen Edmonds Leeds or a long wing would be my suggestion for a shoe. For a boot, I think the Daltons are a good suggestion or any of the Jcrew Kenton boots, especially if they go on sale.

                      The Badlands is a pretty good looking shoe.

                        What's the best way to stop my new Dalton boots from squeaking/making that leather rubbing noise when I walk?

                          I have used a sprinkle of body powder on the tongue of boots them wipe them off. I have to do this every time I fully condition them and take out the laces. I always forget what others have used in the past....I want to say it's a Saphir product.

                            How business casual are we talking? In my office, I go with Alden indy boots paired with denim. I always get compliments and with a nice sweater or oxford up top, I never feel out of place.

                              My First Ave boots stopped squeaking on their own after I wore them a bit, after about a month.

                                Anyone have experience with Fjallraven jackets? Does the quality justify the price, or is it just pointless mark-up? I've handled them in person and they're clearly a cut above columbia/north face but they still seem to be made in China.

                                Thoughts?
