HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3616  

post #54226 of 78717

Mimo has proven time and again that he cannot even see his own awful looks in the mirror so why does his opinion matter?

Stitch - 

 

Can you do me a favor and tell me where it was made and what the lining is made out of? It looks great!

 

Thanks!

 

Actually, it's the exact same factory as Kent Wang. I can tell by the pictures. The lining looks better though.

 

That and I'm a little saddened that Kent doesn't put labels on his jackets/trousers yet. At least a fabric label.

@estitchy: Suit looks very very good. Nice addition! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Before you say anything, I do know the pic is crap. I also know the sleeves are too long (for now) and that the jacket is wrinkled.

The sleeves and wrinkles are how they are because I just got it and I'm trying it on.

 

I'm exceptionally new to wearing things like this. A year ago I wore ill-fitting jeans paired with overlarge sweaters/tshirts.

I've been reading the forum quite a lot though and am learning.

It could look good in your size (it's not) but I would refrain from posting that kind of stuff until it's fitted for you.

no idea what the lining is made out of, sorry. ill check the label when i get home though.

i believe you are correct about the factory, its in china. apparently warren buffet had good things to say about them.

you reminded me, i did not get a pic of the tiberias label. ill do that too hopefully!

Well it's a 42R and my other jacket at the same size fits rather a lot better. I've stared at this now for a while and am noticing more that the shoulders are a bit wide on this jacket. Also that it might be a tad long. Will keep in mind not to post anything more until it's more fitted and finished.

Feel free to post in the tailors fit and feedback thread though. Don't be discouraged of course.

What service did you ask for? The base model, the medium or the full handmade (if I don't remember the names bad)? 

 

ffffuuuu.gif If those are made in China, I will have to pay a lot of duties if I buy one. ffffuuuu.gif

Oh I won't be, I appreciate it more than anything. Thanks.

 

edit: Forgot to say that DerekS' jacket looks very good and I love it paired with the shirt and PS. Really great.

What do you mean "was". lol8[1].gif  Accepted by some, others like to remind me of their objections regularly.  And it's all good.  I wouldn't post at all if I wasn't prepared to take some (often justified!) beatings.  I could just wear a grey suit, light blue shirt, knitted tie and shiny AS captoes every day, but there's not much point in posting it.  It's all good.

Well said, broness.  I apologise if I've caused any offence (other than with my socks, obviously). I'm not bashing on my Turkish brutha; one impish observation seems to have opened a can of worms I did not intend.  Let's move on.  And what a way to move on - that really looks like they're walking the talk they talked, and frankly I was sceptical.  Great suit, Stich, congrats.

And what a way to contribute to a discussion...er...no.  The thing is, honey, none of our opinions matter unless someone values them.  You have a lovely day now.

How can you tell if a jacket is too big without seeing the underlying body?

With RTW, I usually have to get my jackets a bit wide in the shoulders because otherwise they won't fit my hips; if that results in a too big chest it's not a problem because my tailor takes in the chest below the armpits. So I end up getting a jacket that fits rather well and with some shoulder extension, which I prefer.

 

Ernie, your jacket seems to have too wide shoulders but I doubt sizing down would be much of a difference in that respect. It seems to be rather unstructured so you would likely get that "droopy" shoulder look even if you size down. A size smaller could be too small in the chest/hips, which is worse than too big.

 

The biggest problem I see with your jacket is that it's too long, and not just in the sleeves. However, if a size smaller will fit well at the chest and hips, by all means size down. We can't tell from your pic! smile.gif

Thanks for the insight. The sleeves and body are too long, shoulders are droopy as you pointed out, and the chest is way too big on him. It's not a far off guess to say it's too big. But you could be right (probably are)

 

Could the shoulders also be some weird padding? 

 

Either way, I think trying down one size in that maker couldn't hurt, if it's local.
