Wow. I turned the tv on and could not stand watching any channels as I have become too accustomed to commercial free media. Commercials are so freaking annoying as hell.

Impractical for me. It's getting too hot and I am growing out of opportunities to actually wear ties in the summer.

@Isolation

Thanks for the tip! Didn't know they made frescos

(For other people here, scroll to the bottom here past the pinstripes for good solid colored frescos)

Both Vanda? If you regret them enough to consider selling, do let us know!

The FB wayback machine is quite entertaining for me. I posted a link to this Sartorialist picture six years ago. I've thought about the picture since then, but I hadn't actually seen it again until today. I'm kinda surprised to say that I still quite like this.

Just received an SS jacket. I'll extend the sleeves a little (1.5cm) and it should be fine. Thoughts on the rest of the jacket? I was thinking I might need to taper the waist a bit but I think it's fine as is.

 

post #31495 of 37392

It looks very good. I would not supress the waist anymore, it looks fine. 

post #31496 of 37392
Iso, I wouldn't touch the waist. Looks great as is. Also, I only think you should extend your right sleeve (and only 1 cm at most), the other one seems good from this pic.

^The Hudson is a relatively slim cut as it is. I think this fit is much more flattering than some of your jackets with the tighter waist suppression. Great fit OTR!

This is jort (is it same as Hudson?), and the other one I have, Washington, fits really well too OTR, but actually the Havana is really terrible for me, chest/armholes wise.

 

I think the picture's angle makes it look better, but this jacket is a full inch shorter at the sleeves than my other jackets, all of which are definitely on the short side of correct sleeve length.

 

With the Washington which I wear 36, whereas this I have 38, I had my entire shirt cuff showing at times, which was awful, so hopefully the sleeve increase works out.

post #31499 of 37392
Looks great even at that poor low angle. Defo do not nip the waist. Im not even sure Id touch the sleeves.

Iso that jacket is too short. Exchange for a "long"
