Requesting Help with Blazer Fit

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

I struggle with jacket fits, so looking for advice. I bought this 38R Harris Tweed Jacket from J.Crew. It's a nice piece, very heavy duty tweed which would last for years, I'm sure.  There's something that doesn't seem quite right about the fit, though. It would need to have the sleeves shortened, of course, but how about the rest of it? Does it need to be fitted in the body more? Is it too big in the shoulders? Too long?

 

Thanks in advance for the feedback!

Looks fine to me. Congratulations on your purchase. Personally, I would wear either pants of wool or narrow corduroy as opposed to denim, but to each his own preference. Toss on a nice tartan wool tie, sweater vest or waistcoat with this jacket. Once you've decided to enjoy it, remove the hold stitches from the sides of the back flap. The flap should rest freely over your backside. I see no need to alterations. You are fortunate to enjoy right off the rack, as it were.

Well fitted only a tad short length may be. Congrats for your purchase it looks good on you.

Sleeves look a tad short (not too long) but for RTW just enjoy it.

MOL's ideas are spot-on. Get rid of the jeans and wear a tie.
