Not your father's Brooks Brothers?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
It could be pinned, but this looks a lot slimmer than their standard silhouette. Something funny is going on above the second button, and I'm not sure about the material, but I'd wear this. Sleeve length looks pretty good, too.:

That's got to be pinned. I've never seen a BB jacket anywhere near that slim. I've noticed almost every BB display window has the jackets pinned back. It's so frustrating, b/c it's clear they know what I want, they just won't make it.

Actually, I prefer to walk around with a binder clip gathering all the material in the middle of my back! (Which is how one un-named BB mall shop achieves the look.) If I they made this silhouette I would be a frequent shopper.

I just noticed -- Holy Giant Armholes, Batman!

Or is it just me?

Yeah, those armholes look huge!

Is the jacket a tad short? Or is it just me this time?

Could Thom Browne have influenced BB?

Looks about right to me.

by the way: I've got standard RTW's from Brooks c. early 60's that are on the short side. (considerably shorter than the pic above).

As for the "slim" cut above, Brooks made or makes (I can't keep up with all their changes) a 2 button that was on the fitted side (at least in contrast to some of it's more trad. offerings). I've got a couple of older Brooksgate and 346 suits that seem as fitted as the one pic'd above.
