    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

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

I did get the thighs let out in my SS suits but I found that it isn't worth the trouble, as it was still never really comfy after alterations, as there's not much extra fabric to work with. Or, it is time for me to try custom/MTM?
    Brooks Brothers when you catch a sale?
