    I would say the corduroy, rather. For a college student, the tweed seems like it might look like you're in "stereotypical college professor" costume. Corduroy works well and you can still dress it up/down as needed. Works more for the kinds of parties I expect students to be attending.

    I loved corduroy and jeans in college. Tweed I wouldn't have touched with a 10 ft pole, but maybe I was too young and unworldly.

    Hey guys, quick question:
    I'm a poor grad student and need something to get me through a Boston winter. I'm debating between the LL Bean duck boots with Thinsulate and something like the Chippewa Apache/ Service boots (I will waterproof them). I already have some more casual options like Clarks DB and the Deacons. Any advice?

    P.S. I also work in a pretty casual office where either should be okay but the Chips may be better.

    If you live in Boston how can you pass on the Beans? Eh? Eh?

    Joking aside, I think the Chipps Service boot is pretty sweet. But I've never spent a winter up north so I'd imagine we are thinking of two very different things when it comes to "bad weather".

    LL Bean. That's what they're designed for.

    Get Bean boots (one of the insulated versions) and keep a pair of work shoes to switch into at the office.

    I was able to jump on the deal for Red Wing Beckman's but in a Black Featherstone for $183 shipped! I already have the 1Ks in brown so do you think I will be able to get some good use out the black RW's? I really wanted the Cigar color but maybe Black is not a bad color to have considering I have the 1K's. Thoughts?

    I'd get the duck boots or wait for a sale on Sorels (similar).

    I personally was able to snake these in the recent BB sale for this winter; we'll see how they handle some ice and snow on walks to work in DC - http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Hiking...efault,pd.html

    Sadly, they're out of stock but I got 'em for like $85.

    Has anyone tried the J.Crew Factory Thompson in Flannel? Looking to add a little warmth this year for another long NYC winter. Curious as to what people's thoughts are. I have a Factory Thompson in Navy Wool and I'm quite happy with it.

    @bjmcgeever or @groomt, what are the wool/nylon percentages on that tweed jacket? The JCF site doesn't say - but at $78 the brown one is pretty tempting.
