post #9706 of 12577

I do not see how this discussion advances this thread.

 

More photos, less sniping, please.

In a Uruguayan donegal, from a Uruguayan tailor, to a Brazilian customer.

^^ I was not aware that there is such a thing as Uruguyan Donegal, but that jacket looks terrific. It reminds me of the Donegal tweed jacket I recently purchased (see my avatar.)

I can't communicate with people like you and vice-versa. We've two very different approaches when it comes to critiquing and, probably, life itself. I've realized this and stayed away from you. Let's end this here, nothing good will come out from this. Thank you.

fair enough.

top half looks good there, please post the pic showing the bottom half.

Don't think a cable kind really works under a sportscoat (or with a tweed suit). Or at the very least, not a white cableknit.

Didn't realise there was any tweed weaving in Uruguay.

I don't see how I contradicted myself - my point is that the everlasting pursuit for The Perfect Fit™ will lead you nowhere in terms of effortless style. My approach is to live with the little imperfections that are always there.

Also, if you have acknowledged that your taste has changed since you got here is only logical to assume that your taste will change over time. So your future you will probably think as low of your current style as you do about your old one. Unless you're not conscious about that, your comments about self-consciousness being a bad thing just make no sense to me.

 

No, I don't think my taste will evolve indefinitely, see how many users 'graduated' from this forum.

 

Alright, let's leave it at that, don't want to derail the thread any further.

Thank you. Unfortunately, I didn't snap a photograph of the bottom half. I was wearing dark brown 22oz cotton twill trousers (single reverse pleat and cuffs), mid brown otc wool socks, and double soled dark brown suede derbies.

Because that's the bespoke experience that you get for the equivalent of US$ 200,00. I'm going to drop another US$ 10,00 to get the real deal, I've just forgot to do so when I placed the order and didn't want to wait another week to wear the coat.

Got a similar feedback on another thread. Do you've any historical reasoning behind this or is just personal preference? I ask this wholeheartedly.

Wait. Do you really mean $200? That almost makes it worth it to chart a flight there to get 5-6 made for me.

indeed. what are the tailor details?
post #9717 of 12577
Jacket is 3-roll-2. Fabric and lining are lightweight, hence there is little roll.

Here is a much heavier flannel fabric, which has the same amount of lining.



Personally, I prefer larger lapels (about 4) as it reaches the halfway point to the edge of my shoulders (need to stop those lateral raises). I do have a jacket that goes halfway to the edge of my chest (where the seam of the arm begins) and it looks to small to my eye. Your preference may differ.

I'm sorry, UC, but the coat above shows nothing different, no chest shape and no roll, just a stiffer cloth. As is, I've to agree with Forex, as it does look too wide to me.

Ha, seriously. Judging by just the one picture, that's a great looking jacket.

Your ability to judge chest shape from this picture is impressive.
