I’m not sure when it was that the plaid sportcoat became relegated to holiday wear. Winter wear makes sense. This Southwick sport coat is made of a Shetland sort of wool — think those Shetland fuzzy sweaters that were standard prep-issue in the 80′s — and is ver warm-wearing. I’ve paired it with a blue/black herringbone wool tie from the TieBar.com and a shirt from Emmett in the most perfect light blue. Unseen, custom charcoal trousers and cigar cordovan tassel mocs from Alden. This coat will get a lot of wear in the next few weeks — maybe past Epiphany this year. I do like it.
