Appreciate it. I got the cardigan on sale last winter at J. Peterman. Great deal.

@SilentWolf

 

That jacket is too structured to ever look at home over just a tshirt.

 

It's also too long in the sleeves and looks like it might be too wide for your shoulders. The first issue can be easily fixed; the latter sadly cannot. If you can't return the jacket at least get a tailor to shorten the sleeves so you can get some wear out of it while you look for a better fitting one.

 

If you had the sleeves hemmed and wore it over the vneck sweater and shirt you posted a few days ago you'd have yourself a nice casual look for the Autumn/Winter.

Chocolate Suede:

 

post #22208 of 23106

I love chocolate suede.

 

Alright, giving my moleskin jacket a try. One of my earlier commissions that I ended up not wearing very much--armholes a bit large, bulky in general, the moleskin is a bit on the heavier weight and clunky), but I think it's okay. Maybe with more wear it's soften more.

 

post #22209 of 23106

I stand to be corrected, but I think those shoulder divots suggest the armholes are actually too small. Otherwise, it is a nice fit.

post #22210 of 23106

Thanks!

 

I actually think the shoulders are just a bit extended (as per the style for the tailor) which I had reduced on my next jacket while reducing the armholes. I think HK "house styles" tend to be bulkier as a rule.

Here's my next jacket with them:

 

 

and here's another picture of the green jacket.

 

 

I've come to not worry that much about divots though I do like more steamlined shoulders in general.

post #22211 of 23106

My understanding is that a larger armhole would allow even an extended shoulder to have a cleaner drape. But yeah, those other jackets are definitely an improvement. 

 

I've actually had my fair share of trouble in this area. I've concluded that some of my suits and jackets are actually a size too small (shout out to @Caustic Man) - a rather expensive mistake. It will make tailoring more expensive in the future, but them's the brakes, I suppose.

Kids, don't try this at home.  Don't store your wine in bright sunlight.

Walked up to the market this morning at 7:30am, before it got hot.  It's supposed to be around 97F here today.
