Same blazer in both pictures. I just opened it up in the first to show the vest. It is comme des garcons homme plus. I bought it off another forum user, so I am not sure what season. Here is the old listing if you want to check out some of the details. I think that with some EG pieces the right cdgh+ stuff (oversized blazers, boiled wool/polyester, ...) can work really well .

Not sure if I should keep?

Shorten sleeves and keep
post #770 of 1311
Not really even sure how I would go about getting that done in this particular case. From the shoulders? That's an F/W Ervell pocket sweater underneath btw to give an idea of how much room I have.

Looks a size too big to me. EG isn't supposed to be fitted so you might be able to pull it off that way with the right stuff, but it looks particularly out of place with those pressed pants. I certainly couldn't wear it with the sleeves that long and not sure if the construction would allow for an easy alteration on those.

Not really a fit (just threw it on before work for the pictures), but yeah - construction could be troublesome.

Don´t think the sleeves are too long at all, its a parka, not a suit jacket...
post #774 of 1311
It's a jacket...but it's not a parka. It's not supposed to be a long fitting jacket either. And while many people do seem to wear outerwear with sleeves long like that I think it looks horribly sloppy and like a child wearing their older brothers handed down jacket that he has yet to grow into. Sleeve length would be a definitely deal breaker for me if it couldn't be fixed at the tailor. To each their own though.

I'm curious...what size is the jacket and what is your height/weight? I'm guessing if you go down a size you'll end up with a much more flattering fit, from the looks of the shoulder fit there I don't think it would be a problem going down 1 size.

Based on measurements I'm somewhere between an M and a L. Gave the L a shot for layering purposes and I have a SS weight bedford in that size (shortened the sleeves on that one). I'm 5 ft 9 150-155 and I'm usually a US40 / EU 50. I'll stop by and see what my tailor thinks... if not I guess it's B&S time.

Hey guys

Sorry it's not exactly how I roll in EG but guessing this thread will be the most knowledgable. I've just got hold of one of the work shirts in green chambray but have found the vents/rise in the hem to be wayyyy too big.

Has anybody ever combatted this with the work shirts?

Practically the same build as you (a little heavier around the waist) and I had this problem too. I have the Field Parka from the same season as your northwood (same fabric too) and its just a bit too big. Looks alright with a parka though. Does the northwood have a drawstring waist? I found tightening and tieing mine on the parka sort-of fixed the too-big-shapeless problem that I had and you seem to have going on.

So I made it to Tailor at the Tannery on Saturday and got the c1 vest - massive thanks to Jagger_On for the heads up!:slayer:  It is awesome.

 

Also got some brown duck fatigues - fabric is great.  Went with a 32 and they're a bit loose in the waist but good otherwise. Fine with with waist tabs cinched and/or belt.  Think a 30 would have been too slim through the leg for my taste (he didn't have a pair in a 30 to try).  

 

As for Tatt's stock - the denim work jacket was indeed this season's denim coverall jacket - really nice and still had it in like 3 sizes, plus pineapple chambrays, the field shirt jacket with shawl collar in navy, black paisley cord western shirt, grey plaid miner shirt, brown/red/blue workshirt (only larger sizes though I think), some guy was buying an ldt while I was there - not sure they had another, and yeah the red Salmon people peacoat, navy/floral hooded vest, some black wool/polka dot reversible vests, black wool cinch pants too I think... brown duck fatigues, obviously.

 

Old season stuff- one orange iridescent round collar shirt from ss13, field jacket in khaki from ss13, that knit jacket from fw12 that Context carried in a couple sizes (really nice), couple of fw12 storm parkas in khaki, olive wool duffle coat (forgotten what size, season maybe fw12 as well? I dunno)  Also spotted a Needles floral loafer jacket from ss13 stuffed in the far corner.

 

I asked specifically if he had the polka dot vest Shingles and he said no. I have a feeling that doesn't necessarily mean there isn't one hidden under a heap in the stockroom though. Who knows.

 

The guy there seemed very friendly though he was walking around eating a bag of crisps (chips to you Americans), had run out of carrier bags, and generally seemed a bit haphazard.   I think he remembered Jagger_On asking about the C1 vest and was like "That Scottish guy, your friend, he told you about it right?" and  "He is Scottish isn't he?" and kept asking about you, which made me feel slightly awkward haha.

 

Trying it out. brown duck seems to match the door...

Definitely seems like a large would be way too big for you and confirms what I'm seeing. I'm 6' 210lbs and wear a large in most EG stuff, including the field parka and cruiser jacket. I'm guessing that would fit me similar to my parka which is a trim fit right now (I was in better shape when I bought it, but never below 195lbs). Sorry...that sucks man, I wish I could say it fit but it just really doesn't look great.




Lorcan7 - Love that fit! Everything looks really great together, excellent colors and fit on all. I have those pants too, they are pretty great. This season is by far my favorite take on the EG fatigue pants. That Rebuild by Needles jacket looks awesome too...bet it's got some really interesting details going on.

Yeah I don't think I'm going to risk alterations after a brief discussion with my tailor. In my head I was planning to wear it with my RRL/W+H type cargos etc. The weight/warmth of it is perfect for my relatively moderate cold season... oh well.
