Of course it would be named after Parker. laugh.gif

I think I figured out the criteria for the jacket I want to find:

- low gorge
- large drop
- soft/rounded shoulder

I'd rather stay down in mid-level streatwear gutter (W+H, Acne) then venture up into the high fashion stratosphere (MMM, Prada). Not sure that's feasible, though.

I probably just need to start playing Yoox roulette until I find something that works. confused.gif

I'd wait for the experts to chime in but it looks too big in the shoulders?  Is it MMM?

Thread Starter 

some Margiela suits have wider than typical shoulders, just for visual effect. I personally prefer shoulders to fit closer to my natural shoulder, but it's neither wrong nor right, just a certain look. I think you should try the jacket unbuttoned. pants are fine imo, and it's in the spirit of the designer to stack 'em a bit if you want. btw, I like that combo of boots and suit.

 

 

 

 

maybe throw jacket over your shoulders, grab some champagne and stand in front of a police line-up

Awesome. Why is the blazer not listed in their site? You must be an Internet wizard.

Solange's new video is a great source of inspiration of how to wear suits in a non mc way. We can can take away a lot not just from the dandies but from Solange herself

thanks a lot for the feedback on the suit guys. i love the idea of the non-MC suit but it can be dangerous territory.

Tiraileur excuse my ignorance but is that Bacongo? those sapeur guys?

I believe so. The video was shot in South Africa though

I've been trying to incorporate blazers but it's a new thing for me so I need some help redface.gif

 

First one - Does this fit / can I wear it with jeans? The only way I can really picture it is with pressed white trousers with a lot of extra length. Can I wear it with anything that's not all white? I sorta love it but it's hard to style and it fits bigger than other MMM blazers I've tried so I'm not even sure it's the right size.

 

 

 

And this one, also MMM ($100 on ebay) - it fits a lot slimmer, and I'm a lot more confident in being able to pull this one off, but is it too formal to wear with jeans?  It's double-vented.  It badly needs a press which is why the lapels and back are all fucked up.  If I can't wear it with jeans, can I do stacked trousers + t-shirt?  

 

Excuse the unintentional benesyed pose.

first one is freakin awesome, love that swelled chest. Do not size up.

Grey is a very versatile colour except in blazers. The reason being (MC logic is good here) is that it's always easier to wear lighter pants with darker blazers than the other way around. With light grey, you usually have to do the opposite. You need enough contrast between the top and the bottom half. Moreover, since it's quite a cold palette, you need to introduce some colour somewhere into the fit or you'll end up looking like concrete. Also, white tees may not contrast enough with the light grey, so that may cut out another go-to.

I would try your newly acquired red pants with it and a black tee. That should work, but don't take my word for it (i.e. look in the mirror/post a fit). Although it's not versatile, when you get the combos right it it will kill.

Second one is not as awesome but pretty easy to wear IMO. White jeans or grey jeans or grey pants etc etc etc.

Just to piggyback on Hendrix on the first jacket. Just make sure there is enough contrast to tell the difference. I remember Parker once posted a fit where he successfully wore 2 different shades of khaki. It can work, just make sure the contrast is there.
