Brunello Cucinelli, Barbera, Partenopea, LBM 1911 and a bunch more make them.

These have more of a "luxe-casual" vibe that to me falls well into the CM/biz-casz/@menswear side of the spectrum. Though some of them are really beautiful, you can't really streetwear-ify these types of jackets. They are too well-groomed, luxe-y, "weekend wine-tasting" chic, and just too, maybe normal ?... to look right with a tee, sneakers, or other elements of streetwear style. 

The last time I did a wine tasting tour without my wife, I organized it. We rented a bus, absconded with the bottles and/or drank straight out of them, made all the wine country visitors in their linen pants and nice blazers (I think that I saw someone who was a deadringer for Andy Gilchrist) look at us like barbarians, and at one point, we played pace car to a drunk couple riding (well, one was pushing) a grocery cart down the highway that between Yountville and some of the nearby wineries. Oh, right, and I used the pseudonym "Seymour Butts." Ah, to be young and dumb again.

One thing I think that draws me closer to the SW&D side is the fact that I like my suits simple. Alot of MC posters like suits with all the bells and whistles that have numerous trick doors and details. I feel like I dress elaborate enough that it is always best for me to go with a simple suit that I can treat like a blank canvas.

Elisiz, that looks terrible. Not that I dislike the pieces individually, but all of them in one fit do not add up to anything good.

Synth, any recommendations for a black blazer in size 36-38? Really love some of yours in the fit pics.

Dries, one of the only 3-button blazers that I have ever loved - and I love it to bits. Wear it all the time. Unlined cotton.

MMM. Wool, unlined, omega-shoulder

I will forever regret hemming those pants

MMM Shawl collar wool/mohair DJ

these are fucking ace, last is very fumma-esque

i need to contribute

Emo? patch[1].gif

i think he is being ironic or something making a reference to user "elisix" who is notorious for his use of emo to describe darker aesthetics that frighten or intimidate him.
