    Waterproof, with hood, not too bulky.

    I think $375 is too much for this. Looking for a cheaper alternative.

    Thanks
    That doesn't actually seem that expensive to me. Waterproof 3-layer construction and seam-taped for $375 seems reasonable if it's well-made.

    I'm tempted to buy it. I've been looking for a raincoat, though I'd rather not have a stow-hood.

    @LesserBlackDog I don't think it looks that bad. If anything I would just try switching to a pair of shoes in dark chocolate or something similar. Usually I wear my Fifth Avenues in burnished calf with brown trousers.

    Boot Care Question

    Question about boot care:

    Purchased a pair of these. I've never owned a pair of boots with oil-tanned leather. It feels almost suede-ish to me, although it clearly isn't. It's soft, though.

    Is there any reason I could not use Sno Seal on these? Was poking around for confirmation online and couldn't really find anything.

There are many blogs about how to successfully do black shoes with brown suits and that it can be a classic combination but it take a some planning. I find that my black tassel loafers can work well with brown trousers, off white shirt and burgundy tie.

    Should be fine as long as you don't mind that it will darken the leather.

    I also find the suede pairing just fine but understand the want for more contrast. I wear my bourbon shoes with my flannel brown pants which gives some contrast, but those pants are a bit darker than Ben's suit. I have yet to try the black with brown, but have seen it done well at times, but seems like you have to thread the needle a bit.

    Are you aware of waterproofing products that would not alter the color?

    @LesserBlackDog I echo the others. I think it looks fine but understand your question. I think I would probably do a smooth leather like someone earlier suggested.

    I recently bought a suit in grey-brown glen plaid and am having a similar question to LBD, but with a less rich shade of brown. Will post a picture as well when I get home.

    Quick question in regards to the rule of thumb on suit shoulder fit, basically the vertical seam on a jacket and where it should sit. I have read this shouldn't sit directly on top of the shoulder, but should be on the "apex" or kind of right where the shoulder begins to slope into the arm, is this correct? To make this visually understandable, shouldn't the seam of the jack be located around the index/middle finger in this photo?



    Here's basically the same angle in a suit to show placement
