Ah, a different fit of mine was quoted as I was making my post. I was referring to CP's post of the DB jacket.

Good to hear from you. I know you have an excellent wardrobe so please share when you have the time.

I miss you guys as well :P

My life has changed and I'm basically poor now, and completely absorbed by work and other matters. No money for clothes, thus my interest in classic menswear as a hobby is fading. Hope better times will come. Or maybe I will switch from expensive MTM to thrifting smile.gif

Winter has returned to NYC - highs today only about 10C/50F, but sunny and clear (and predicted to be windy - brrrrrr).

Money comes and goes. As long as you've got a good wardrobe you're always good to go (and we know you've got one) wink.gif

Thank you gentlemen. I still do use the CM elements in my wardrobe (moving towards a "smart-casual" style though), but haven't posted anything in a while because it would become quite repetitive smile.gif

So, following the feedback and advice I received, I went shopping. Sleeves still need altering (only got it yesterday) and the shoulders may be a bit too wide but I think overall the fit is much better.

(apologies for the bathroom selfie)

I'm afraid you have a huge collar gap.

^What Anden said. Have you still got the receipt? The shoulders + the collar gap are too big problems to have an alterations tailor fix. You'd be doing yourself a favour by just exchanging it for something that sits right in the shoulders.

Sorry to hear that, and thank you. Mine is pretty much the opposite, moved to a new house with my woman. But the only income we have is mine, so €700 jackets are pretty much out of reach now!

 

Thanks and not to worry, man. That was quite a few years ago. Well recovered by now and married again. I mean who learns from their mistakes the first time?! ;)

I think its because the button position is too high for your frame, so its pushing the top part of the collar out. Agreed, there's no way this jacket is going to properly fit you, so before you get it altered, bring it back and exchange it for something else. Did someone in the store help you with this? If so, see if you can get a refund and don't shop in that store again.

He's also not at natural rest...

left quarters/shoulder are forward and right shoulder is leaning back with the arm so you aren't getting an accurate representation to begin with.

Definitely the same fabric! It's very fun, isn't it. It could simply be that both Luxire and Bugatchi sourced from the same fabric supplier. Don't know.

You know, some here might look down on them, if they did them in a small enough size to fit me, I'd probably have one or two of these. They're OK for the price, and the styling is pretty decent.

 

 

 

 

Spring is definitely here! Able to wear white jeans for the first time this year, and also my new excellent Adire-dyed cotton tie from Tirailleur1/Post-Imperial. Square is from woe-is-me/Ikire Jones, from last year's collection and I'm thinking about getting another soon. :slayer:
