    I got this BR wool chore jacket on a whim. Love how it looks, but I love how it wears even more - the stretch it has combined with its flannel like lining is an absolute winner. I love it when rugged looking pieces are actually super comfortable. I would absolutely buy it again.

      I have an American Flag romper similar to the one posted above. Purchased at a thrift store, the clerk said it looks like something a high school teacher would wear. My wife started laughing out loud.
      I reach HS music. And I do wear it for appropriate holiday events. Like Arbor Day, Flag Day, Tet Parades, and various Saints days.

Also the Roark Revival Axeman (the black one with corduroy collar) is pretty much everything I hoped it would be and reasonable at $139 full price. https://roark.com/products/axeman-me...17495723409479.

        My favorite sweater of all time came from a somewhat unlikely source - it's a Irish Fisherman/Aran cable knit sweater in a super versatile mid gray with Donegal flecks woven in. Thick, warm, stylish, and it was made by Levis, or at least sold by them. Had no idea they did anything but jeans and western yoke shirts.
        I really like the look of that Axeman jacket. Tempting.

          It's pretty nice for $139. It's basically a WWII deck jacket with modern materials and some design flourishes (the fireman slicker clasps and brass snaps). The black version has a nylon shell and it's insulated with "sherpa" poly fleece with a flannel lining in the body - the sleeves are lined is a smoother fabric. The DWR coating they put on it is pretty effective so it's great in cold damp weather - e.g. yesterday it drizzled all day long and was about 35 degrees Fahrenheit and it was perfect for that. I've been able to test it down into the mid-20s Fahrenheit and it's adequate at those temps with t shirt, button up shirt, and wool sweater as layers underneath. Might be adequate down in the mid teens with a beefy wool sweater or poly fleece layered under it. Colder than that and you probably want to grab something warmer if you're going to be outside for very long. One awesome feature is the hand warmer pockets are lined all around in the sherpa fleece the jacket is insulated with...it is soft and warm and cozy AF for hands - once you're mitts go in there on a cold day you're not going to want to pull them back out except in case of emergency.

            Sounds like a home run, especially at that price. Enjoy!

              I like that a lot. I'm actually considering getting it. I had something similar years ago and something similar now in dark blue. But so much of what I wear is blue, when I wear it, I feel like all I need to do is cover my face in blue makeup and I can join that famous Vegas act.
              WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

                Haha. I can relate.

                  After telling my husband yesterday that I don't need another piece of clothing, I saw your post and bought this jacket, deeply discounted. I love the look of boiled wool and I imagine I will be wearing this jacket for years.

                        J Crew essential Henley's are a little overpriced regularly IMO, but on sale they are good. Right now they are on a great sale. I used to have a navy one and got an acid or bleach stain on it and retired it. This sale came up and I bought one in every color they had for my size. I think the promo code i used put them at $12. Not sure what today's code is but its in the neighborhood.

                          just some jest. When I use a regional slang, I get it as well. Heck, I rib my wife every time she says wicked or says we need to go to the market. In the south, wicked is a sin, and its a grocery store. My buddy has a couple of lotus (loti? Lotuses?) and occasionally says windscreen, bonnet or boot. He's from Michigan so I give him a little crap about adopting regional terms when not in the region but we all know what he means. He spends a lot of time talking about the cars with people from other places so I am sure he gets grief for saying trunk, hood or windshield and its easier to adopt the terms of the majority. But its fun to hear the terms from other places.

I will admit I've gotten into turtlenecks in a big way over the past couple of years and these two companies make my all time favorites. The lower priced turtlenecks from John Henric are made from cotton and are extremely comfortable (they do not irritate my neck at all). A word of warning though that both of these companies are from Sweden are euro sized. As an example, a typical BR medium sweater is a bit big on me. The sweaters from either of these companies fits me like a dream. You may need to size up if you order from either company.

                            Okay, based on your recommendation, I ordered one of these on sale after Xmas. Very nice! Wearing it right now.

                            As implied by your original post, I think a little closer to sweater-weight than shirt weight. So, I guess I'm a bit disappointed because I'm in sunny So. Cal. and I won't get to wear it a lot.

                            Also, I would say they are true to size--not vanity sized. At 6'2", 195 Pounds, I'm a true large. So often I will order a large slim-cut and it's too big!

                            I tried on this shirt and a recent Good-Man brand and both my wife and I agree the fit on the Grand Frank is much better.

                              For custom made shirts I would recommend Ratio clothing (high price range) and Nattyshirts (Mediocre price range).

                              Wear what is good for your and others eyes
