    @Nigel—Then I will correct you.  This jacket is the Beaufort model.

    @Andrew C—I personally believe the 8” is the perfect height between low and high, proving the most versatile.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is the Bedale and not the Beaufort jacket.

    I love those bean boots, and I finally ordered myself a pair. But I was wondering what everyone’s preference was: the 8” or the 6”?

    Hooray! It’s so nice to see a young person here not wearing an entire outfit that is “skinny” or “slim fit.”

    It took a second for this one to gel, but once it did, and it was thanks to the club collar, tie bar and for lack of a better term, go to hell smile, i was sold!

    Looks like he took 30 seconds to decide what to wear, really effortless, classic/great look.

    The club collar adds some interest. If he was wearing OCBD, he’d look just like all the rest of us.

    My favourite part of this whole look is his lopsided grin; that suaveness definitely ties this look together.

    All I have to say this Guy is a SAVAGE!
    I had a similar look two days ago, the only difference was the jacket, I had a Quilted BC London http://www.fashionstyleyou.co.uk/quilted-jacket-from-bc-london/
    Hooray for the Bean Boots lovers!!!!!!!!
    Good job FEC.

    Nice. Agree with BJP 100%, though I think the club collar is a little silly….

    Great look. This is classic New England prep winter style. This could have been taken 30 years ago…which speaks volumes. I personally don’t do the tie bar, but it’s a personal decision. Nice FEC.

    Barbour, bean boots, tweed, and a great tie (a little tie bar swag as well).  This rocks!  Great shot, and a tip of the hat to this gentleman!
