    Merino and fair isle is a rare combination. The fair isle pattern usually goes with more burly yarns, as befits a pattern from the islands north of Scotland.

    I bought a slim fit Jomers shirt recently - the washed button down in burgundy/rose gingham. It's slim, but not button-puckering-ly so. I will say the sleeves are pretty long. When buttoned, they constantly creep down over the bottom of the palm of my hand. Other than that, though, it fits nicely in the chest and shoulders.

    Anyone have experience with the fit of Jomers’ shirts? Considering picking up their new shaggy flannel shirt, but unsure how slim, slim fit is. For reference I’m about Joe’s size.

    I think I'd want to see it all put together for a final opinion.
    Thanks! I ended up not liking the look as much as I was hoping and went more traditional. Good thing, because it was warm in the room!

    Question: I have been wanting to try the suit sans tie plus sweater combo. I have a medium-navy suit and was thinking of a dark green sweater over a windowpane button up, can it be done, or will it all be too busy?

    What is this style sweater called? With the colored flecks woven in. I want one or two and am trying to find good key words to search.

    This is in the BB sale section, and is probably cut slim.

    Field Jacket Search

    Hi all,

    I live in the Boston area, and I'm looking for a nice, mid-weight field jacket for days when I'm just going from my car to the door of the school where I work. I really like this jacket from Banana Republic, but I'd love to find one like it in an olive-green-or-darker-green shade without going over $200 list price... I'd love to get your thoughts. I'm 6', 155 lbs, and prefer things a little more fitted (usually S when shopping for most tops).

    These are the closest things I've been able to find on my own:
    - WenVen Men's Stand Collar Jacket
    - Alpha Industries M 65 Defender Field Jacket
    - A&F Removable Sherpa Combat Jacket
    - A&F Midweight Technical Jacket

    Thanks for your advice and insights!

    I've done it. It can be too matchy at times but it really just depends on the colors in person.
