I find it difficult to judge the appropriateness of the length without proper, well-lit full-body pictures (including from the back), but irrespective of back length, 0J is right about the button stance. That buttoning point is too high for you. Way too high on the model and still a little too high on you.How much experience do you have with wearing suits? I'd think hard about it before I had anything altered that made the suit un-returnable (like shortening sleeves, which...
@DesignerValet Very comprehensive, thanks!Tbh purely design-wise I'd prefer other makes (like this Dries bag), but the issue with a lot of them is they don't have a shoulder strap, which is kind of a dealbreaker for me.Anyway, I think I'm going to return this one as neither the leather nor the fact that is has no external pockets is quite what I'm looking for.
don't know if this one's been posted yet: http://www.superdenim.com/ EG, Cabourn, Trickers, Viberg...
Anyone have experience with how well MMM leathers hold up with use? I got this weekender from Yoox and am on the fence about keeping it. It came to 565 euros with one of the recent discount codes, which seems like a good deal, but I have another (non-leather) weekender so don't absolutely need it. (It's still available on Yoox and on stylebop if anyone else is interested.) @DesignerValet: If stiff textured leathers are not your favourite and previously you said...
very nice, especially that lot of ties
looool
You know @kmert, the back length of ^that suit I could live with, I guess. I'm 6ft3" myself and still have a few OTR jackets that probably sit like that on me. It's the sleeve length where I get paranoid. Do you actually wear your sleeves like that? The only reason that Farfetch model you linked to doesn't look totally ridiculous to me is because the shirt sleeves are equally waaaay too short. If that model was wearing anywhere near his "correct" (in inverted commas...
fair enough I guess I still have my CM sensibilities turned on from my previous life..
You know, I'd be curious to see that actually (non-ironic). I could imagine that 6ft2" and 30" BOC might just get you into CM-approved territory.However, the TB suit on ssense I linked to is clearly not 30" BOC - not in any size. In fact, the model appears to be wearing a size 3 according to the info in the size chart! If that's the back (and sleeve!) length you get out of a size 3, I don't want to see what that suit looks like on even an average-height guy who needs one...
We seem to be going in circles with this.Yes, that model is tall, as most models tend to be. So maybe one thing we can all agree on is that fashion models tend to be taller (and less fat) than the general population, and clothes designers - although this is my speculation - are probably aware of that when they create patterns for OTR anything (including, but not limited to, suits and blazers).Having said that, have you looked at the picture of that TB suit from the back?...
