The oversized french cuffs and short shirt sleeves are making the jacket sleeves wrinkle, and the awkwardness in my right shoulder is due to it being a low shoulder. Not sure I can have that fixed, but anyways, this fits much better than most RTW I find...

I agree about the buttoning point, it could certainly have been lower. I think the whole jacket looks a tad bit short, maybe the high buttoning point is a contributing factor to this? Other than that, the look is classic.

"Nice shoes! Model?"

They are Belfiore, i believe they only have a shop in Milan on Belfiore street, the quality is just awesome while the price is very good, around 170 or so euros iirc.

edit: i've checked their site they seem to have a e-shop http://www.calzaturebelfiore.com/index.php

Hmm.. I actually tried on a 40R, but it seemed way, way too long. It reached past the tips of my thumbs, and I have long arms, so you can imagine it made me look really short legged. When measuring for jacket length I usually pay attention to proportion between torso and legs, and nothing else. The buttoning point was spot-on on the regular, but the length was beyond alterable...

 

I have the same problem with single breasted coats anyways. I like the waist and button placements on regulars, but have to get shorts because of my height. That's the problem of being exactly in the middle point between S and R tounge.gif

that sounds lovely! sucks about the rain tho. frown.gif

no p! looks good. i love the shape of that DB, and it looks great on you.

By way of hopefully compensating for my rather cobbled-together outfit of earlier today, something marginally more thought-through for going out in a bit. Sorry for the lighting/compensatory image-processing but it's already getting dark here. Trousers are actually dark chocolate brown velvet and the v-neck is a dark green. Shirt & square recycled from what I was wearing earlier.

Yeah, the button stance is definitely too high. Looks OK, though.

I believe Manton's point was more that he couldn't think of a single instance where a different color wasn't a superior choice to navy. In this outfit, chestnut or chocolate brown pants would look even better, IMO.

I see zero reasons for apologies, even the less than clean-shaven face.

personally, i have never been a huge fan of the critique, "this is nice, BUT, would look better with different color PS/pants/socks/underwear......"

imo, many times, if it looks good, it looks good. maybe the person has a certain item, and they want to wear it. or they got sick of gray/brown pants and wanted a new color. its like saying, you look good, but it would be even better if you were wearing a totally different outfit that also looks good, but might be better (well that is an exaggeration).

no hate, ivar, just something i wanted to get of my chesticles, and i used your post as a soap box.

I would agree with your assessment that the button stance could have stood to be a bit lower - 3 cm would have made a world of difference - but as it stands, the jacket looks fine, and it is a proper length for you, either by the position of your thumb joints to the hem, or to the fact that it (I will posit, since I can't see behind you) covers your rear correctly. A shorter jacket would have looked much worse on you.

Yeah I'm not sure if I shouldn't really have bought the regular - it seemed way, and I mean waaay too long, but there was also quite a bit of space between the pockets and the hem so maybe it could have been shortened. I do, however, feel that a DB looks better with more space between pockets and hem, and that's why I went with the short; don't know if that's right or wrong. The button stance was about 3-4 cm lower on the regular. Another important reason to go with the short was the armholes; they were really low on the regular, and I hate that.

 

The sleeves on this one were shortened a little so I can't return it... Fortunately, I still love how it looks, but will take your oppinions into account for future DB purchases. If my upcoming MTM single breasted coat turns out well, I might comission a DB as well. Thank you gents. smile.gif
