I'm not a huge fan of vents on a cropped blazer. The point of the vents is ease of movement and accessibility of pockets, if I'm not mistaken If you can already sit down, put your hands in your pockets, ride a horse, &c. without interference from the skirt of the jacket, why would you need a vent or two cluttering up the back of your jacket?

Full disclosure - I have a couple of cropped Barena jackets that I love which are double-vented. Something about the vents and the way it's constructed just makes the jacket hang better.

I'm feeling very tempted by a shadow plaid suit from Mackintosh Philosophy in Tokyo, but being nagged by the feeling that 41 is too old to be buying narrow mod-cut suits in stretch fabrics...

I feel like tech fabric blazers, no matter how well cut, always look a little off, in a space-age plastic-y way. But dapper space age tech dude is a solid look...just not mine.

Depending on the jacket, I prefer double vented and no vent nowadays. For SW&D jackets, no vent is fine. For CM I much prefer a vent and without one would bug me; then I would I prefer double vent. Single vent is unflattering unless you are slim IMO

I decided in the end that it wasn't the age, it just didn't quite fit me however much I wanted it. Basically, I have the wrong proportions for a lot of Japanese streetwear-type suits and jackets. I'm the right height but I have slightly broader shoulders, a barrel chest and my hips are nothing like as narrow as the average skinny Japanese 20-somethings that most of these are cut for. As it happens, over the weekend, I did get very lucky on a suit, but that was very much one for CM rather than here...

Not all tech fabric blazers look like plastic; the Outlier FSC Blazer, for example, is made of 64% Cotton, 29% Nylon, and you'd be hard pressed to tell until you observe the tech features in action. That said, I feel the Outlier Blazers are conservatively designed and don't really fall under streetwear moniker as used in this thread or when compared to other tech blazers like Veilance's Liminal Blazer (cotton) and Haedn Blazer (wool)

thanks.. that said.. anyone have input of how the outlier blazers fit? cropped? slim? anything?
post #750 of 845

Slim, not cropped... there's a SF thread for Outlier where you may get more responses...
