Haha glad to see we have the same exact thought process about this. It's a shame that happened to you. Hope that everything came out correctly after dying/replacement.

Also, per your comment about Mariano not being bothered by the canvas/lining showing through, I sincerely hope it's an innocent oversight (however hard that would be to believe) on his part. There will be a tremendous loss of respect if I find out it's some sort of tongue-in-cheek affectation/sprezz.

You don't really notice it that much, but probably a camera flash made it look worse. I don't understand his persistent collar gap.

Definitely noticeable in any light (except dark / evening)

It could be the kind of thing that is very rarely visible and was exacerbated by a flash photo.

edit: whoops, late to the game.

I'd say that might be case, were it not for the fact that his resting arm is just as see-through as his bent arm. If it were about tension and lighting you'd think the naturally draping areas wouldn't show through nearly as much. I also agree on the collar gap.

Most of you already know about Luxottica, but thought I'd post anyway. From the October 7th 60 Minutes:

I could see some designer making jackets with slightly sheer fabrics and contrasting canvas as a way to let others know the jacket is canvassed. Like cuffing selvedge jeans.

Well that answers the unlined vs lined question : these are definitely unlined. It looks so moronic, sorry to be so blunt.

Sprezz.
post #552 of 1648
Terrible.

Sprezz Fail!

Yes. It's a flannelly, woolen fabric, three patch pockets, no vents. Thrifted, so it doesn't fit perfectly, but well enough for my tastes and budget. I live in Atlanta, and haven't gotten any Masters comments yet about it. It's definitely a fall weather jacket, and works well with just about anything in the browns and khakis range.

I hear that unlined sleeves wear cooler. I'm planning to try it for a linen suit next year.
