Testing out the navy blazer I got back from the tailor yesterday. Constructive criticism and advice welcome!

I would prefer a more front-on picture with both arms naturally by your sides. It would help assess chest, shoulders and arms. My first reaction is length. It looks too short. On the other hand, I'm okay with sleeve length - looks good to me.

Mm thanks for the input. Do you say it's short because of the belt peaking through? It's tough for me to go longer on a jacket since the one pictures falls to my knuckles when I let my arms hang.

I agree that the pictures would be better if my arm is not raised. When I looked at it in the mirror this morning the front did not have as severe a part of my arms are in a natural position. Also perhaps next time I'll choose a pair of pants that sit higher on the waist (belt is also a little loose in this picture and hanging down).

You could be correct - the pants are very low on your waist (from what I can see). I would recommend wearing trousers on your hip and not on your waist (like where you would wear jeans). I have this problem too and it was pointed out to me. I found that feedback very helpful for myself and it helps my sportcoat look more proportional on my body. 

 

Personally, I'm not a fan of gold buttons, but to each his own.

Thanks Frank - Levis LVC

Very nice Colco, (although your belt is facing the wrong way!) what shoes did you wear?

Thank you.  I didn't know belts could face the wrong way.  I'm left handed.  Does that change things?

 

Tan suede tassel loafers from Grenson.

It's a tiny almost pointless nitpick. There was a survey on here a long time ago which unsuccessfully tried to establish either consensus or a 'rule' as to which way your belt tail should point. Being left handed may be a mitigating factor. Now you might get some crap for wearing a black belt with tan suede shoes!biggrin.gif

It's navy blue.  And woven.

Thank you.  It's a few years old.  David Chu.  He's out of business now.
