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 #48924 of 78721

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.

This got I lot of love, and I thumbs-upped too because it's very solid. But IMO ideally either the trousers should be paler beige (or better still, mid/pale grey) or, if keeping the khaki trousers, make shirt non-white. As it is, I find the trousers a little too casual in colour for the top half. This may just be a cultural thing; I know khakis are used with a greater variety of outfits in the US than generally would be the case here.

I may just be projecting, but I can almost see the eyes widening & lighting up at the sight of all those bolts. biggrin.gif

You can click them, and they'll open a bigger pic. Not 100% clear of course, as all our amateur fit photography on here is very variable, but certainly big enough to see most of the the details.

Certainly looks too wide, and you know I don't mind a little overhang myself. Difficult to tell whether they're too strong at the moment, given the extra width, but the amount of padding is a personal choice anyway. Tailors can cut the width down. It's not particularly cheap (it's a fairly laborious process I think), and the result is a crapshoot. I've had it done twice as a stop-gap measure with relatively cheap jackets while deciding when & whether to order something more permanent to replace them and was only really happy with the results once (the other time was OK, but not ideal). YMMV, though, I suppose. I went into it with my eyes open about the chances of success (and what I would perceive as a success) and the tailor was honest about it too.

 

I think some other guys on here have had pads replaced with thinner ones and the shoulder recut to work with the smaller volume. That sounds even more likely to go wrong (and require even more skill to go right) than simply trimming them down in size. I may simply be too risk-averse, but I wouldn't risk either operation on pricier items and would simply sell those to part-fund something new that fits better.

 

Leaving the shoulder issue aside, the actual look is good. Nice one.

I believe that this is only the second time I've seen a traditional DB gold-buttoned navy blazer look swish on someone. The last time was a dude back at school, for what it's worth.

 

 

 

 

 

British Summer Time has finally arrived. The appropriate weather is taking somewhat longer to arrive, but in a change from recent weeks, it was bright & sunny out and I actually was able to go for a walk in the parks without totally freezing. And at least there's actual light in the evenings again. So that's progress...

 

... looking slightly rumpled as photo taken just after I got back in instead of my usual snap before going out:
