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.
