YYPH pre-00 3b wool/cotton suit


soft rolling lapels and three beautiful black buttons grace the grey/blue fabric. very light-weight but the suit is still somewhat structured due to the exaggerated shoulders (padded) and relatively slimmer cut, compared of course to the more extreme displays of volume from his workshops. the pants are especially airy in the upper block, tapering down to settle nicely over footwear. hard to capture sufficiently with static pictures. despite being at least 14 years old this ensemble is still stunning.

BTW the pope is pulling this off so effortlessly, i think he could eventually settle with incredible ease into such cuts and fabrics ;-)

If you're into prints, topman has some casual blazers in batik

funny how the locals never made use of batik. we're treating it more like drapey stuff.... i think it can work in a blazer in some low contrast, monochromatic pattern. most of the batik here were made into shirts with ugly billowy cuts

Anyone recommend a decent cheap (<£100) unconstructed blazer?

for example, batik print trousers

You can find some lightweight Our Legacy blazers for that price (though I'm sure, at start, the retail is much more).

I'm not a big fan of the fabric this was made of. It's kind of a cotton terry. I have the wool flannel version (grey though), which I think is much nicer. It fits a bit oversized, just fyi.

I've got a sweatshirt blazer that flares out like that, neither slim of waist or surfeitous of booty. confused.gif

It could just be the way it is cut. Most skirts on jackets do flare out a bit. also, fleece stretches like cray,,,

I spy my jacket zapatiste!

 

I must go and check out that GBS suit at hostem. The retail is something I could never hope to afford but man it looks perfect.
