I sorta feel like doing this, tbh, but making the proportions so off trend that no one has any idea whether I'm ahead or behind. So, tight blue blazer, but then nearly Yojhi baggy jeans, but very tapered, or maybe super sagged, highly tapered, jeans, and then monkstrap boots.

This get-up from Fabio Quaranta immediately comes to mind



It's like if KVA switched production to some rustic Italian workshop (if you look closely, you'll see the fabric is herringbone!). Rock it with a gaudy lapel flower and pocket square and watch the confusion unfold.

Thing is, the body of the jacket needs to be taken in too because it kind of looks like a box on me (not in a good way)—not to mention the fact that I'd pair them with some rather fitted trousers.

So I'm unsure whether the jacket as a whole will look alright if the body fits as it should with the sleeves a bit longer. I'll take a photo though once I pick it up, and either things will work out or they won't. confused.gif

Dude, hate to say it, but all signs are pointing to returning/selling it

Looking at garments with huge flaws and thinking "we can rebuild it! we have the technology!" has never worked for me, and there's no way I'd recommend it to anyone else.

I like this one more than the last one.  His stuff avoids the masturbatory element that most fashion writing is full of.

I, of course, was a part of that grand farce, parading down the sidewalk of the Meat Packing District wearing a collage of designer clothes that retail for nine times what I have in my checking account. Like everyone else, I wanted to be seen this week, to be noticed on the street, to be mistaken as someone famous or special. And so I splurged, as I will often do, on clothes that would broadcast a life of glamour, even though mine is one of backbreaking student debt, eating canned tuna, and paying penalty charges for being late on my phone bill.

 

I'm always curious how many people on SF are doing this, lol.

I could probably just get the body and everything else taken care of, but the sleeves would still be kind of long. Has anyone else dealt with this before? I really don't want to sell the jacket because it's really cool (returning it might not be an option, and sizing down wouldn't work), but I don't think I could wear it as is...
Thoughts? shog[1].gif

Are they functional cuffs?

This is the problem I seem to run into with most blazers. I usually need to go up a size to accommodate the chest, but that usually means the sleeves are too long. I've got one blazer that I really like but haven't worn yet because it's probably an inch too long in the sleeves (slightly past the base of the thumb) and since it has functional cuffs, shortening the sleeves probably won't be cheap or possible without compromising the fit in the upper arm.

you can get a 'cutjob' done, has been mentioned on the MC side in the past. basically they cut off the button area at an angle and reattach higher, with a decorative stitch. looks fine on casual blazers but I think it would bring a suit down a few notches.

 

and yeah, functioning cuffs on RTW is fucking stupid, especially when manufacturers like Staff make a 48eu with 27" sleeves. No SA or store manager I've ever talked to about this likes it. No idea why they insist on doing it.

@TheWho   The best thing is to take a pic once it comes back from the tailor´s. Sometimes the long sleeves look can work.

really ? i don't even remember the contents of the last one but this seemed pretty vacuous, like a stream of consciousness realization that putting on an air of luxury at the expense of living standards is no better than a coke head's spending habits for a quick fix escape. fantastic ...
