I like the sheen on yhe first jacket but I am biased against mad made fibres incorporated into a blazer or suiting
post #602 of 846
blazers just came back from alterations... closed all the single vents into ventless. hah. so they won't flare atop my ass anymore.

I am thinking of engaging this semi-retired tailor to make me a suit... SE Asian prices.. though I'm not sure whether he can be persuaded or directed to make less structured stuff. Also, fabric. Synthetics are everywhere here and I suspect wool or linen prices would be exorbitant...

I kinda have this idea though, how fun would it be if such thing as an "avant-garde" tailor exists, meaning he takes bespoke orders but for something like a Yohji blazer... basically a tailor who is well-versed in the classical bespoke trade but also with the eyes for "out there" stuff

If you have the patience you could guide any tailor I to doing such things. Who do you think Yohji and Raf use for their stuff?

ehh, I would think of doing something like that as an experiment. There are so many small details and tailoring decisions that make any particular design, that I'd think it's really difficult to replicate something. I'm sure some really good tailors could get pretty close, but imo you may as well just get the real thing from the designer if that's what you want.

Parker, I finally got my Boglioli suit pants back from the tailor and sent the whole thing off to be pressed. I left the jacket alone and took in the waist/hemmed the pants. I'll be picking it up tomorrow... maybe there will be fit pics. I picked up the dark gray version.

Any suggestions for a cotton or blended jacket that I can wear easily in the office without looking "stiff"

If you check out Roberto Collina on Yoox they have some great looking casual jackets with wide lapels that I am looking for. Unfortunately the colors do not seem to coordinate with the rest of my subdue wardrobe for the office hence my hesitation (aside from the brown one). That and I like to wear the jacket all day rather than taking it off. So, I consider it like a cardigan or something. Otherwise, anything too structured would fold and crease from all the sitting. Is it weird? I guess. I know one should take off the jacket when seated but I'd prefer mine on with the exception of when I am in a suit.

I ended up order 2 Uniqlo poly blend jackets to hold me over but unless they fit and are really "knitted" like material I will not last long. Plus, I always tend to rub against poly blend jackets in general (including the lining) the wrong way and get shocked by everything I touch re: I went to Costco after work and was pushing the carts. EACH WALK I kept getting zapped and it was ridiculous to the point that I may have had to carry the milk, bread, jerky, etc.. all in my arms. I rushed to the check out line... FWIW I think the wheels on the cart were busted so had a lot of traction on the floor, which in turn caused the cart to be very sensitive.

I try to avoid poly anything nowadays but it is hard!

Finally finished this Devoa suit, shoulders look a bit off in the photo (they're fine outside the photo)

looks good, but what do you mean by "finished?"

I will guess he means he bought 'separates'.

Old season, had to hunt down separates

Slight break. We'll see how it works without tapering them and how that may limit my footwear options.
