Please critique the fit of this sportcoat - Page 2

post #16 of 18
Thread Starter 

Damn it, Despos and Man of Lint, way to come along and ruin the beautiful consensus we had built.  And MoL, extra thank you for the bonus critique of my countenance IN ADDITION to the jacket.  You have a good eye to appreciate my sultry pout.

 

Yes, it was intended as a casual jacket, but a well-fitting jacket one.  So I don't know if I succeeded or not.  What I do know is that Lands End has some of its sportcoats on crazy sales today and scooped a couple up for (total) less than half of what I paid for the jacket in the above pic, so this sucker's prolly getting returned.

 

I do appreciate all the comments and am glad to have stirred some controversy amongst the SF elders.

it's just a crappy cut for some reason. Try another brand.

Despos is absolutely right that jackets like that aren't supposed to fit like a traditional odd jacket. They are supposed to fit differently, to be slouchier or looser or softer or something.

But I'm not sure that one fits differently in a way that looks good on you.
