First I make the same pose as for the first picture. When I stand straight I am looking every time a little bit like a robot. So I tried it with one leg a little bit cocked.

Thank you, Mr. D. I had to run errands this lunchtime, and it was good to be bundled up in lower Manhattan (still full of post-marathon tourists, all pawing through the goods at Century 21 - for those not from the metro NYC area, a major discounter, not a real-estate firm).

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.
