I took some photos of the vest layered over the IHSH-237. I took one with the collar tucked in as well... All for the sake of science of course, @neph93

Excuse the bad lighting





Regarding your question: I actually really like showing off the collar like that. It adds a ton of character compared to tucking it in. There's something "vintage" about I'd say... Over all, I'm actually super pleased with the fit and the vest.

As said, I'm actually not a vest person and I leave the kingdom of vests to you - However this one will accompany me for many years I hope. I like the quality, functionality, looks and warmth of it a lot. I needed this for my UHFs and as an extra layer for the winter. Now..... To get or not to get the matching mackinaw cruiser coat in olive green, that is the question ::)

Great combo with the UHF colour combo and styling in all those shots. I think smaller guys also have a better chance of making that combo work when the shirt is untucked and the vest open.

The collar out thing can certainly give a vintage style. I never feel comfortable enough to be  confident wearing it.

Both of these shirts are for sale on eBay and the IH forum as I simply haven't worn them enough to warrant keeping them. However, mixing the shirts up with, for example, the white Lee jacket, Iron Heart chinos and IHTB-BORN boots I am left wondering if they are keepers or not.

Any feedback would be appreciated . . . .

Two very nice outfits @den1mhead. The red one pops a little more than the brown but they both make for a fetching look. Be good for spring (or summer up here).

Cheers @neph93 I have got to agree with you that the red pops more than the brown. Reckon I may keep the red and let the brown go . . .

All depends on what your options are in addition to the two above.  If you have other shirts you favor/wear more that would also work well with the rest of the kit above then I'd say dump both.  If you don't have any other good shirting options that work with the above I'd say hold the red and gray and dump the purplish and blue one.

Brothers and sisters of the forum, once again I call upon you for your honest views, opinions, feedback, criticisms etc.

I have recently acquired a pair of Viberg Boondockers and have a pair of kilties and am wondering whether the two work together?

Are the Vibergs and kilties a hit or miss ?

I vote no kilties on those boots. The clean look is just so good.

No kilties. I think they work best with a bigger toe profile, like the job masters

I love kilties and as a general principle I think all boots are improved by them. Not here though. They look fine with, but better without.

Thanks peeps for your contributions so far. A resounding miss for Viberg Boondockers & kilties. I wonder if there will be any challengers to the consensus overnight?

I like the contrast of the kilties.

I'd also like to cast my vote for no kilties. However, I'd like to say that they look good, and add a nice contrast. Still my preference is to go without them.
Blanket-line all the things!!!

@doguhanca

I'd say the fit looks spot on. Filson stuff tends to be sized generously so my experience has been to size down. I've read good things about their wool garments so this vest should keep you pretty warm, especially if you're using it as a base layer under a coat.

@gaseousclay @Paul9221  Thanks!

Yeah, the sizing aspect is definitely correct. I sized down to XS from my usual size of S. I bought the vest to layer under a coat and also to layer over my UHFs as I want to get more wear out of my UHFs. Not to mention of course; it looks badass layered over a wabash shirt.

To be honest, after buying this vest, I've given a serious thought to purchasing the matching Mackinaw Wool Cruiser (Alaska Fit) coat in olive green as well ::) The reviews on the Internet do mention however that it doesn't stop wind that well. I wonder if paired with my UHFs that issue could be solved?  :-X
I suggest trying to find a NOS or used Filson . The quality took a nosedive after they were acquired by some corporate grifters about 15 years ago. The newer wool has a  stiff cardboard like feel to it, doesn't drape like the old jackets and seems thinner to me.
