I have the Hedi jacket in black suede. It's perfect. Super slim in the arms and body. Definitely recommended. I can post some pics if you'd like.

Part of the reason why I didn't immediately grab the flight jacket was because I already have a suede jacket, and would like another leather instead. I think my hesitation means I didn't really want it that bad. Though I could feel my will power corroding just before it sold out.

I think in terms of side jackets you can't go wrong with the Hedi jacket. @isolar please post pics I'd like to see it. I personally regret missing out on the leopard suede Hedi jacket.

for some reason I think I prefer a zip on a suede jacket. although hedi looks real good in that photo of him after one of the shows.

Sure thing. I'll try to do it later tonight or tomorrow afternoon. I know how you feel about that leopard one. I keep seeing it in the Mr Porter sale (only size 50 and 52, sadly) and am reminded of how slick it looks. Great piece. Though the black is obviously much more versatile.

I think I'm the opposite, I prefer buttons on suede and zips on leather. But really it comes down to the jacket––that flight jacket would look weird with buttons, and the Hedi jacket wouldn't look as good with a zipper.

@haydrak  looks good, man. Did you go TTS?

post #12848 of 14957
Yup.I am 6.1 and I am wearing a 48.
post #12849 of 14957

@haydrak good to know. Sounds like we're about the same size. Enjoy the jacket!

 

 

Thinking about grabbing either the corduroy or velvet blazer as an all-around jacket. Leaning towards the corduroy, because I think it's a little more visually striking, plus I like the suede elbow patches. Any thoughts?

 

 

 

I'm also eyeing the chalkstripe blazer from FW15. How's the fit on that one?:

@isolar yea man.its definitely a good investment.And it's quite versatile too.Can be dressy or casual depending on how you style it.
I personally like the velvet one better.Never liked corduroy.But that's just me:) I have a velvet blazer in Bordeaux and it looks pretty cool I must say.

Isolar - I picked up the corduroy jacket in black with the leather elbow patches and it's a great investment piece. Excellent construction (fully canvassed!), and working button holes (only need to get them to open up the sleeves. It's cut short and has a pretty good taper, so a modern aesthetic. It's cool but can still be worn in various more formal situations.

Once watch out is because of the leather patches make sure you get the arms taken up from the shoulders if they're too long. You don't want the patches to sit too low on your forearms. The boutiques have no problem doing this.

BTW--the corduroy effect is pretty subtle.

Sorry if i bother you man - but I remember you are about my height ~171 cm, can i ask you for a pic of a saint laurent blazer after they take up the sleeves from the shoulders? Want to do it on two of my size 44 blazers but I was curious of how it turns out, especially how much cuff of the shirt pops out, or watch/bracelet. Thanks!

Any advice re: Wyatt 40 Chelsea in Tan vs. Harness Wyatts in Cigaro?

I feel like the chelsea is a little less hypebeast/will last longer but the harness version just looks so good....

the suede to get is the aviator jacket (not flight). super simple, ultra clean, looks amazing on. tho i'm not a fan of the turd brown suede. track down the og tobacco if you can find it.
