SW&D or casual MC perhaps?

I am all in favour of playing with colour and pattern, but that is horrific.

A bit snug. Otherwise I like.

Don't like the way the side panels wrap toward the back creating a narrower back "flap". Starts to look like a woman's jacket to me.

WTF?????

Has this just been altered beyond the pale? Or is this someone's idea of fashion?

It looks like it would be equally odd from the front - as there is all sorts of tension showing at the sides.

I have that problem on nearly every RTW jacket I try on. Most tailors aren't able to take in the torso of a jacket that much and leave it balanced because they only take it in from the sides/back (which yields results like the one pictured above). Even if you have a good tailor, it may not be worth it to try such an expensive/risky alteration.

I can't see it having been designed that way, at least I hope not. It looks more than a normal alteration, it looks like a jacket that has been taken a whole size down (at least) - say 40 to 38 - by cutting a section out of the back. I'm guessing that the only way you can really alter a jacket this much this is by taking the whole thing apart and recutting it, then putting it back together, because every piece is designed to fit to the larger size. Clearly if you try the shortcut, you will end up with a very unbalanced jacket. And I can't see that buying the wrong size and then trying to hack it down is worth it anyway.

And the fabric listed is 170s 'weightless' wool. I'm sure it's luxurious, wears cool and all. But that's gotta be fragile like tissue paper.

I have a 160s super light weight from Canali. It's like wearing your PJs to the office. And it wears beautifully cool in the deserts of the middle east. But there's a price to be paid - every little movement of the body causes the fabric to also move (dare I say ripple). It's a dicy thing between comfort, luxury, and still being substantial enough to be tailored and wear well.

Just a little heads up for anyone whose considering these fabrics.

PS - I like the look in the photo here btw.

This is part of a lookbook which means they specifically wanted this guy to look this terrible.
