Jacket looks pretty big on the shoulders, too...

 

*Cheap: Think 80s--so last century Miami Vice, et al.

 

Thanks! LOL, today it was blindingly bright where I am, and I had to walk 45 minutes to an interview so hence the sunglasses! (I like the in-the-pocket effect, personally.)

 

Thanks for the thoughts, guys. I might mention it to my tailor next time, and see what he thinks, but I'll carry on wearing it, anyhow, as it doesn't fit big--just looks it.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Love the tie, Derek... and the SC! What size did you bought? Yesterday I was watching the size chart of SuitSupply and the 44 has 18.9" of shoulder, the 46, 19.3".

Oh! Sorry, now I get it. Yes, of course. Do you have an idea of how much does the shipping would cost?

This is very very cool. I was going to ask about the trousers but someone already did and you already answered. The trousers are awesome!

Is this a new jacket?

nod[1].gif Huntsman via Seamasterlux. It's the first double breasted jacket I've ever worn. It's also the maiden voyage for that tie, which seems too bulky for single breasted jackets (I think that's the biggest four in hand I've ever tied)

It's a very cool jacket, Clags.

Unfortunately, the shoulders are pretty much the one part of a jacket than can't be altered. Cut your losses and move on.

Throw away a £100 jacket, because the shoulders are an inch max too large? Oh, Styleforum, you crazy dog!
post #48925 of 78722

A good tailor can, but it'll cost you half the price of the jacket.

Hmm... maybe, when I have some spare cash! Thanks!

I have been unable to find out which stores in the USA carry Ballantyne.  Their website is totally useless and google isn't helping.  How would I find out?

This is the entire crux of this forum. Regular guy says who cares, SF guy says it's unacceptable. Not to mention £100 is cheap for a jacket even outside of SF.

I don't like it, but I'm not mad enough to sell it because of it.
