If you had added "After visiting the store I discovered the Havana online. I am bummed I missed them in the store. Would anyone know how they fit compared to the Washington?" then we would have enough context to realize you actually made an effort, and we could reward you with the knowledge you seek.

Instead, I am being a dick because there is a shitload of great information in these pages. It is tiresome to constantly regurgitate the same info over and over. You want to see some real dickhead responses? Start a new thread about what you should wear to your buddy's wedding. Better yet, post that question in the WAYWRN thread along with a picture of you wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

(I did answer your questions by the way).

Carry on.

 

Wouldn't it be a good idea to make a sticky for threads like these? The same questions are being asked over an over again.

And why does civility not exist, because people like you feel the need to rule the roost over the forums that they frequent and feel the desire to be unnecessarily rude to new members as the question has been asked at some stage in the past. I would say you wouldnt be rude to a customer in a shop as you had been asked the same question by another customer a week ago, but I am sure you would.

Im sorry I didnt realise I needed to work for a reward. It is a fashion forum for god sake, get over yourself. Ignore such questions if they annoy you and don't feel the compulsion to give "smart replies". You are dealing with adults here not 10 year old children.

Funny you say that...just this morning my 3yo asked me where her favorite doll was. I had seen her playing with the doll 30 minutes before this question was posed. Being the good parent that I am, one who teaches by providing the tools to cultivate exploration and curiosity, and helping them work through the logic on their own, I suggested that she walk to the rooms that she had been already and see if the doll was in any of them. Alas, she comes running out of the bathroom holding her doll above her head and smiling. "Found it, daddy."

So if my 3yo can do it........satisfied.gif



So, in all seriousness, have your questions been answered yet? I do remember offering up some real responses about my experience with a Havana coat, which you seemed to have passed over.

Dude, your question has literally been answered 100s of times in this thread. Be an adult and use the search function.

I wish I lived on a planet where I always wanted to have easy to find information spoon fed to me and then could criticize people who didn't spoon feed me.

Guys, a tip for making scanning past posts more efficient: Go to your SF profile settings and set the post count per page on max (100).

Happy Friday, SF. First time poster. A month or so ago I was confronted with a funeral to attend with about a week's notice. I lost a good chunk of weight this summer and my old suit fit hilariously badly even before that, so I did some quick research and went with a Napoli suit in dark gray, 38R. I was happy enough with the fit OTR that I wore it as-is, although I had my mother-in-law hem the pants. On the strength of that suit's look this week I ordered a Havana jacket in brown, also 38R. I wanted to ask for some feedback on my Napoli suit jacket, and maybe what to expect out of the Havana.

 

 

 

I'm 71.5" and 170 pounds. 38" around the chest and 35" around the belly button (using SS's measuring technique). I'm wearing a casual OCBD shirt, but I'm a 16-33.5 or thereabouts. Seems like the sleeves could be let out a hair, but other than that, how's the fit?

 

Thanks for any feedback. I'll report back on the Havana. If it fits well I think it's going to replace a J Crew Ludlow jacket (also a 38R) that I bought but definitely doesn't fit great OTR.

Napoli looks nice. As you said you can lengthen the sleeves a tad (.5" or .25")

I prefer the jackets to be a little longer. Have you considered ordering in long?

I am still not sure what other jacket I should order. I kind of want to kill two birds with one stone. One navy and one ??? I want it to be versatile enough with brown and black shoes.

@jimanchower - do all of your shirts have sleeves that long? To me, they look a little long. I'd check other shirts before touching the jacket. It would be helpful to determine length (to getto's long or regular comment) if you also wore the suit pants.

Is it on sale for 149 or are there cotton jackets always 149?

 

I personally don't like the jacket

Yeah, my shirt sleeves are too long in general. I've got some shirts that should fit properly en route. I'll definitely wait until I have a proper shirt to use for the basis of alterations. Thanks to you and getto for the feedback.

I noticed that. Can anyone here confirm if it's an error? I just sent them an email, but perhaps someone here already got an answer.
