Now it's feeling decidedly wintry. Nevertheless I am still wearing linen. Go figure.

A couple weeks behind, and complete newbie question.
But what type of pants are these? They look different than any other wool pants I've seen, really like the texture.

It's personal preference, but I think a little bit more length to the jacket, maybe 0.5" or so, and moving the bottom button down by the same amount, would balance a jacket out just a little more.

 

 

 

 

Now wake-up!! :decisions:

Received a new jacket today, beautiful fabric, but not entirely happy with the fit.

My thoughts (Click to show)

I think the buttoning point is quite high, the jacket is a bit on the short side, and the cut is very boxy/has no shape to it, while it's still somehow slightly pulling at the button. It's also showing the same lines in the sides as in the product picture: 

I'm wondering whether those lines are inherent to the fabric, a beautiful cotton/silk mix? Normally I would just return it, but I really like the fabric, so would it be worth having a tailor trying to rectify the boxy cut and the lines in the side?

Thanks for the advice! I've had the same done with a suitsupply suit, which became beautifully shaped afterwards, but that one wasn't pulling at the button. I'm a little puzzled how letting out a jacket while creating shape at the same time works. Either way, there's about 1,5" of extra fabric in the hem, so I might just have the body lengthened as well. It's just such a nice unstructured and casual blazer that I'm inclined to give it a try.

I admit that I am prejudiced for any shirt with a flap pocket, any knit tie, anything wool, anything tweed, and anything by JS Bach.

Why does mentioning it defeat the purpose...is this a lord Voldemort thing...or more of a "don't think about elephants" thing?

ideally, it should come naturally. if you have to point it out, youre doin it wrong.

Exactly. It's not nonchalance if you walk around talking about how nonchalant you are.

Exactly Stitchy. I think an acceptable working definition is 'studied nonchalance' which in itself is an oxymoron, and that's why I hate it. Either you dress with some level of precision (Spoo) or you clearly have a good knowledge and dress sense but the outcome is a bit rumpled and 'lived in'(TTO), but when you clearly try hard to look like you don't care (Brunello Cuccinelli re-doing his tie over and over each morning to make it look the right amount of crooked) you're an idiot!

poo-chee, unfortunately :lol:

 

I do like the tie in a certain way, though. I wouldn't be caught dead wearing it, but it meshes pretty well with HF's style, and that's what matters.
