    As long as we're asking for opinions around here, feel free to weigh in on this: http://www.flwoods.com/product/burgess-blazer

    I am liking more every time I visit the site or Muffy. I wish I could try on in real life before deciding.

    Ah ha! I thought they looked a little familiar. I would say they're a good purchase, then. The orange is good bold choice.

    Good to know, thanks.

The kind of thing to throw on when it's 65 and a bit breezy and just a shirt isn't quite going to cut it, or when it's warm during the day but you know the temps are going to drop at night.

    Right now I'm tempted by these, which are on sale:

    Ben, that's a lot of money for a jacket that looks like a children's fireman costume. I think that you can find something more flattering for far less. A lightweight cotton harrington, bomber, or field jacket would do the trick.

    Can anyone recommend a good quality burgundy long wing for around 150? I like the jcrew longwing, but can't justify the $318.

    Best bet at that price would be the Florsheim Veblen in the wine color or the Haviland, though I'm not sure if that one comes in a similar burgundy color. Check eBay, there's a couple of sizes of the Veblen going for around $125. I saw that J. Crew longwing in store a couple weekends ago and was not impressed by the leather, not for that price anyway.

    Fiiiiiiinnnee leatthaahh gooods.

    On topic, I kind of like the orange as well since you're looking for casual. It's a nice change up from the usual Barbour look. The sky blue doesn't speak to me and the brown is neutral per your statements above.

    Rancourt makes excellent chromexcel belts for $105. I can't say enough good things about them. They also sell shell cordovan belts if you're willing to pay more

    Do you have any luck with in-between length shirts that work tucked and untucked?

    I have pretty much given up on this off the rack but am considering trying with a new order from Proper Cloth. My first order was perfectly long and awesome for tucking only which is fine. The next one I was looking at is a Navyish Oxford cloth
