HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 2369  

post #35521 of 78723

Vintage suite from the 1950´s for 40 €. The suit smelled ugly - storage, smoke and old man. The odour still remained after dry cleaning two times and months of airing. Then I discovered the method with chemical cleaning in water called Elextrolux Lagoon. Now the odour is gone. It´s magic.

The jacket is perhaps shorter than other jackets; however, it does cover my ass, as Phat Guido would suggest. 

 

 

The quarters are probably a little closed. I'm also standing on my toes in front of my bathroom mirror. My ID badge is in the chest pocket underneath the right (my left) lapel. Because I had the summer off and spent it at the gym, I am much more muscular than the maker of the suit probably imagined a 38S would be. As for the jacket being a little short, I'm only 5'7... 

 

true it covers yr ass-  it may be your muscularity +   long arms in proportion to yr body?  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

jacket's very Don Johnson, Victor.    'Moscow Vice'?

 

 nice looking fabric

icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I have an old vintage suit in a cloth that looks pretty similar. What weight (approximately) is the cloth? My suit is probably 16-17 oz which means I can only wear it two-three months a year fi I'm not going to melt.

Sorry for the crappy quality. An iPhone camera only goes so far...

I felt the same up until recently when I decided to purchase one. Now I'm starting to like it.
Some places offer knit ties with point end also.

 Can you give more details on that process? I have a used Zegna DB jacket that smells and would like to get rid of the odor.
