    Was hoping for a second opinion on these shoes - I'm a big fan of Asics/Onitsuka Tigers because they fit my feet really well (and I like the look, particularly the low profile), but wanted something in white and a little more on the minimalist side. I'm on the fence because of the soles, which just make the shoes look a lot chunkier than Stan Smiths or other similar designs. Curious what folks think.

        In that case I’d recommend a pair of chukkas or Chelsea boots with a rubber sole and have something else to pull duty when the other pair is drying out. It may be worthwhile to also look into adding a waterproofing to the above. You’ll probably spend 80% of your time in the above boots during the winter there.

        Bean boots would work (New Englander here) as well but would definitely stand out and announce yourself as a tourist.

        You’re going to be dealing with freezing rain, slush, some snow etc. so it’s more about traction and keeping your feet dry than anything else.

          What's your favorite v-neck sweater? I like chunkier Americana-type stuff, if it matters. I also tend to run hot, so something designed for ice deliverymen in the Arctic may be overkill. Am ok spending about $70 per sweater, but of course cheaper is fine too.

            I like the Amazon Goodthreads merino v neck sweaters. They're $40-50 depending on pricing robots. Good quality, though not chunky. But they are nice and warm.

              I'm thinking you should look into a v-neck merino sweater vest. You still get the layering effect, like with a full sweater, but its easier to stay temperature regulated. Keeps your core warm, but the merino breathes and a vest allows your body to dissipate heat under your armpits like a rain jacket with armpit zips. Highly recommended.

                Does anyone have experience with cotton-linen blend sport coats? Wondering what the material is like, what climate or setting is it best suited for (business/business casual etc.).

                  I'm not an expert, but I have a olive colored cotton-linen sport coat and a blue windowpane linen sport coat. The cotton-linen fabric looks a little smoother (read: less wrinkly) than the 100% linen. The blend is maybe a little less formal. I wear the blend jacket to work business casual, with slacks or cotton dress pants, with or without a tie, and it works fine. I wear the windowpane linen jacket in the spring and summer for going out. It's not really business wear. I imagine there would be linen and linen jackets out there that are business wear (because of their color/pattern) but I would wear a lighter/tropical wool suit instead if I were wearing business dress.

                    I own a cotton/linen blend from Yoox. Apt. Co I think is how the brand is spelt. It’s a micro puppytooth hunter green and cream jacket that works really well as a three season casual jacket with chinos or cords. Definitely not something to wear while meeting a client or in a boardroom, but perfectly fine to wear to an office setting where suits or even jackets are not the norm.

                        Do the Adidas Stan Smith’s have a removable insert in them? I don’t have any experience with them but I have to have different inserts because of a high arch. Thanks
