I need your opinion. My choice of footwear yesterday was questionable at best. What are your thoughts? Too big? Too loud? Do they go well with this suit?

Boy, I look creepy in that photo.
All joking aside, this is my favorite suit. It must have been made for me in a former life; it just fits too well. It's scary in a good way. It'll take a masterpiece of vintage tailoring to knock this on off its pedestal.
Here's a look at the tie. It's new to me and wonderfully 1940s.
The hat is new to me as well. It's a 1940s Dobbs fedora with a pleated bow. Wonderful.
Also new to both you and I, here is a late-1930s overcoat. Fits me beautifully, just like the suit.

If you detected an interesting texture on the overcoat, you have good eyes. Here's a closeup of the curly mystery fabric.
Made in northeastern Iowa, where I obtained it.
