Styleforum Top Picks
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.
I probably shouldn't have posted those pics, they are really bad... the DD is a 2 button blazer and does look weird in the photo... the fit looks a lot better than the pic suggests. Pants aren't jeans and shoes aren't boots either.
Here's a pic from the corner, it shows the shape of the blazer a lot better and is closer to what it looks like IRL. I actually really like the aesthetics and it's really impressive up close, but it's a looser fit through the waist and hips and might go better with baggier pants than what I was wearing. I just have to decide if I want something cut slimmer...
I will post a fit on waywt tomorrow and take an poll on whether to keep or return... I'll also take some detailed pics, because it looks so much better up close than in the pics. I want to like it but if the fit is off then it's off and I'll return it.

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.
FWIW I was considering a 2 piece suit by Siki Im

whats the blazer there?
i've done business with Zam and he is a good guy, makes no sense not to do bus with him due to his beliefs which he does not impose on anyone else
Eh, I don't really think "slim and cool" when I think of Damir. I've checked out a lot of his blazers and they're one of the hardest of his items to work into an otherwise "normal" wardrobe. You can't just throw it on with some jeans and be good to go. You really need a certain proportion on the bottom to balance them and everything kinda needs to look loose and sort of hanging off you. You should check out the runway shows and the way places like lncc style his stuff. But I suspect you'd have a hard time working it into what you have so may not be worth keeping.
I've def noticed this-- he cuts his blazers in a way that practically demands looser bottoms. I've only tried his jackets wearing mah skinnies. Will have to try them with baggier trousers to see if that = more success
Edit: this sort of thing
