Just as a reference I wear 34 in SS jackets or 36 in Ludlows, and Target only carries Small (not XS).

    Thanks!
    Probably too late to help but I've got the Goodfellow wool overcoat. I think it's a good buy for $79. The shoulders are padded but not heavily. I'm a 40 in SS and most other brands and the Medium fits me just about perfectly. Tough call on whether the Small would be small enough for a 34/36 though. Why is returning it not an option for you? Target's usually good about returns.

    Can anyone recommend a good sweater brush or comb? I recently thrifted a POLO cashmere sweater, and the thing is pilling itself to death, especially in the armpits. Thanks!

    For cashmere, you'll want a pig bristle brush or at least a softer bristle that is specifically meant for cashmere. Do not use a brush that is not meant for cashmere as you're asking for trouble. Brand doesn't matter, I suggest googling around for something that won't break the bank as cashmere-specific accessories can cost more than a cashmere sweater.

    As for the pilling, no brush is going to fix that if it's severe. Set aside an hour of your life, grab a razor blade and tweezers, and *carefully* remove the pills from the surface one by one by lightly pulling the pill off the surface with the tweezers and then shearing it off with the blade. It's a zen experience and once you're done you'll actually have an even softer sweater.

    Quick question that will probably open up pandora's box, but as a recent transplant to Minnesota, how do I found a jacket that will keep me warm in sub-zero temps that doesn't make me look like I'm climbing Mt Everest? I recently bought a Fjallraven Greenland Winter Jacket and gave it a whirl when it was 15 degrees and it didn't hold up at all (with a cotton henley and merino sweater underneath). I'd really like the waxed canvas, workwear style jackets both aesthetically and functionally (I do a lot of woodworking and manual stuff around the house). Here's a couple of inspiration photos I dug up (Fjallraven greenland and Patagonia maple grove, respectively).
