Red and black plaid - Page 2

post #16 of 22

Now I've seen you wearing this, the issue is less about the colour and pattern (which I didn't think would work for you to begin with) and more about the fact that it doesn't fit you. Return it if you can. Or sell it on if you can't.

I want to thank everyone for their helpful comments. I have a soft spot for cashmere. Even if this jacket fit, the question is not so much whether the jacket can work, but rather whether there are better options, and there definitely are. You're a great group of guys.

Seems a bit too tight/lean across the chest (and probably waist). Not the most flattering on you, I think. If you're going to wear leery stuff, I reckon it has to fit near-perfectly to have a chance of pulling it off.

Sorry the 1st reply you're getting is a bit of downer.

The jacket is not too small, I am to fat.

Rest assured, Man-of-Lint I will not be wearing the jacket.

I like the colours - in my opinion it's very workable as a "casual" jacket when worn with jeans, loafers and no tie. Why not take it to a tailor to see if they can alter for you?

It's showing up as yellow with a red and green? overcheck on my monitor.  It's out there, but fine for the track, or Fridays IMO.

 

So what about with a pale pink or cream shirt, no tie, and say fawn or khaki trousers and light brown shoes?

Time for a new monitor? It's definitely not yellow and green.

Not a flattering fit and very 1970s. Unless you have a larger than life character that goes with it I would get rid of it. Little will go with it and it will be the attraction and give people a bad impression that anyone could buy let alone wear such a thing.

I have a similar jacket. I usually wear it with beige pants and sky blue button down.
