post #361 of 829

I'm digging this LBM, 60/40 Linen/Cotton would be pretty tight for spring/summer. What do you's guys think?

^I like how their jackets look


Fabio Q. came in, fits great, enough for just a tee or shirt. Fabric is 100% wool, no lining. Feels heavy. If I get any bigger it shall not fit anymore in the shoulders. Not sure if I should keep at the moment as I want to pickup another similar navy suit for F/W '13.

Fabio Q. jacket has a bit of a hairy texture with the weave resembling denim, which I now understand after LA Guy explaining it. Adds a nice texture all in all, not sure if it is Shah approved seeing how it wool-denim lol. I have to say what really helps is that it is a lighter navy than say midnight blue. The weave has a bit of shine. It really is like denim!


Collar standing up

No back vents



The lapel naturally down

DETAILS:


Good representation of color. No button cuffs, just a slit

El Bert, I vastly prefer 2 buttons. 3 is okay if you're tall, but not for me (5'-10). 1 is okay if it's really cool looking and casual. It's always frustrating flipping through the hundreds on Yoox that are mostly 3+ buttons. And then you finally find one that's perfect and the designer spent extra money to put in some dumb contrast stitched buttonhole that completely ruins it...ok venting now.

Where to kop Devoa? Would something like the lapelless blazer make it to sale or need to buy at retail?


A ton of the 3 buttons are 3-2 roll, Yoox just buttons it up. Also a ton of jackets that are actually blazers but have a button at collar as well so it's fully buttoned up in Yoox photos as well

That looks a lot better on you than it does on me. The shoulders are key. That shoulder line fits you very well. It the shoulders don't fit right, the whole thing would look seriously off. I am considerably more built that you are through the shoulders and chest, and the "hoho drape" just sort of bulged in wierd places for me. I would keep that if I were you. Nice pick up. I'd probably wear it with baggier pants though, and maybe a tee instead of a button up shirt.

You can also get a navy suit, but they would serve completely different purposes. This can look cool at a bar or just thrown over jeans and a tee. A navy suit would be much more formal, unless you really go nuts with proportions or material.

Does anyone know how to tell what season Dior suits/jackets are from?

Toasty, I really like that but I agree with Fok about the pants. I think you could do something pretty cool with those boots, though, and a slightly grungier ensemble altogether.

Thanks man

The pants are cut 19cm. It is the boots that are causing the stacking / bunching, which would otherwise look cleaner IMO. I am actually looking to do something with the boots and see if the cobbler and minimize the diameter and / or add a zipper or lacing system in the back. As is the pull on Silent boots are making pants fall oddly. I really love them despite this minor detail.

Not sure what other pants. Please post examples and "grunge" looks teacha.gif

I think you could pick anything in a darker color or textured fabric and it would turn out well. Corduroy would probably work well; maybe a slim bootcut even, or just look at the FQ lookbook that features that jacket. Cropped or rolled trousers, black derbies, anything slightly distressed....

What are they?
post #374 of 829

1st one is Damir, 2nd one is Mario Matteo. Pics aren't that great, I will have to do better later...

post #375 of 829
First jacket looks bad... The one button and overly closed quarters.. No good. 2nd pic would be so much better without the red square which is .... Also the bottom with denim and boots looks too aggressive for the top half. I'd swap the shirt for a tee. Or kept the top and changed to sleeker boots or shoes. Like some dark brown bluchers. Either way square has gotta go.
