Listen this lady has obviously never lived in a major metro city or a major european city , all of which I have including London and this coat is very sharp looking and yes what I would expect an exec to wear . Ignore her . Alot of folks chide me because I wear my fathers long wool coat and I have dressed it up a little with lapel pins , one of which was his and his fave at xmas was a rudolph pin . It is a small gold pin with a red nosed reindeer and on the other lapel I put a nice poinsettia pen that belonged to my grandmother . My dad and grandmother are both passed on now but I wear this coat to honor him and I feel like I have him with me that way . Ignore this woman she is a low class moron and also what was she dressed like ?

She was obviously nearly frightened to death of you

haha, I thought he may have been looking like he came out of the matrix or something, and scared the lady.

Very professional and classy. I wouldn't worry about the passerby, either she has poor taste, or no clue.

Earth, Naw man that cut is a 1880's classic cut. Bat Masterson etc. All this 'new' just ain't. Nice coat just not a new cut. I wear 1880 cloothing for grins, tall mule ear boots and that like just casual wear. Modern means sneakers and i just don't do sneakers.

Getting semi dressed to me is jeans, the mule ear boots, if it's chilley a button down flanel shirt, maybe a wool crew neck sweater in a earth tone, and a 1760's leather frock coat with a cape hand embroidered, topped off with a Balmora Scot War bonnet. The look is something like the bad guys ram rod in Quiggly Down Under.

Sure I dress funny, but no one else around here looks a thing like me. I like it that way.

All this new fashion usually is a modified old fashion. Pretty much as i see things bodys come in about 2 ways. So far no one has ever complained I am complicated
