I currently have the linen-cotton blazer I picked up from uniqulo hanging on a normal plastic hanger. Is that a problem? Is it really important I get a decent hanger for it/do you think it will get dimples etc. ?

Anyone know who makes this shirt?

I just thrifted a navy blazer and tweed sportjacket that are both Brooksgate. Does anyone know if Brooksgate is fully/half canvassed or fused. I can't tell myself.

I'm guessing fused. It's a lower end line from years past.

Should I return it then?

Why? They sound like they were inexpensive. If they fit, I'd rock them.


Fit trumps a lot of the other stuff and you shouldn't fall victim to the idea that everything fused or half canvassed is shit. It might even be half canvassed, for all I know.


Regardless, if it fills a void in your closet, fits well, and looks good, then I'd keep. I've got a few jackets like that which I'll replace when I find something better, but they're perfect till then.

Yeah only a total of $50 for both. One is a navy blazer and the other is a gray herringbone tweed. I bought them because I am young and do not have the money to go full bespoke or even mtm at this point but needed something versatile and solidly constructed for when the situation arises. I just feel some regret because I know that fusing is awful but honestly don't have enough experience wearing tailored clothing often enough to know the long term effects for myself. That's why I just get hung up on what the experienced people say about fusing vs canvassing. That said, they do fit well.

Sounds like you answered your own question.

I guess I did. I also picked up a seersucker Ralph Lauren suit on the cheap that I figured I could use the jacket & pants separately or together in the summer and am assuming that is fused as well. But I know seersucker suits are generally cheap and was unsure if most are fused or if it should also be canvassed?

I am jealous of that find. I've been looking for one.

It was a pretty good find. I only bought it because it had the details I wanted, specifically high rise pants with cuffs and pleats and interior suspender buttons. I know these things are usually frowned upon but I find high rise pants much more comfortable and elegant, especially with suits. Unfortunately, the pants are way too wide in the leg, would a tailor be able to slim them down to an appropriate size without much difficulty?

Cost will depend on where you are, but yes not too costly. About 20-30 dollars depending on location and tailor, that's my best guess.
