This RTW suit looks more lived in than anything I own. Pressed the trousers this morning and they are all frumpy already, and the shoulders went from ill-fitting to decent-fitting and slightly drooping over time. I love it. If the armholes were higher this would be sweet.
Makes me wonder if the MTM I currently use is really worth it and if I should rather stay with this brand or go full bespoke. The armholes in my MTM coats are so big I can fit a leg in them, and the tailor's obtuseness on this matter doesn't help.
The tie is cheap silk, bought on a rush for a wedding. I took it apart and re-made the slip stitch and the bar tacks, though - guess that makes it semi-handmade
You know what I dislike about this jacket? The closed quarters. That's why I wear it unbuttoned most of the time
Well, yes, the slip stitch is usually hand made, but the bar tacks are machine made.
And most of the time the slip stitch doesn't end in a loop, so it's stiff and snaps easily. I like to re-make it with the loop on all ties that don't come with it.
Pingson - awesome jacket. And the shoulder fit seems pretty good.
You mean "thrifted jacket" (maybe not) ? Way to go, Spoo!
