F stands for fresco, actually.

Bummed this Eidos jacket doesn't fit - don't think it's a sizing issue, more the cut (sleeve pitch etc).

Edit: actually it might be sizing, back looks tight. Although it might be my posture.

Return?

I think the sleeves might fall more cleanly and the chest drape more nicely if you sized up one.  How do the shoulders feel?

post #31639 of 37395

Thanks for the feedback, the shoulders felt fine - they're about the same width as the 48 Formosa (that fits well). I tihnk the shoulders on the next size up are about 1/2 inch wider

FWIW, I think the size is right. The problem is the sleeve pitch. It also looks the jacket is made for slightly forward pitched shoulders, while yours look quite straight. Can't say much about the back since it's so wrinkled.

Sleeve pitch looks off.. are your arms naturally like that? Or stiff for pictures? if is naturally like that, then yeah, its off.

Arms were hanging a little stiffer than usual for the robo-pose, but the same sleeve pitch issues were noticeable even with a more natural, relaxed pose

The Eidos armscye shape and sleeve pitch don't work for me either, with similar results. It's unfortunate, since many of the jackets are great, but I've reconciled myself to Eidos just not being for me. I suggest you do the same. (And I've tried three sizes just to make sure. It doesn't change the result.)

I agree, I think this approach is more sensible than trying to tailor my way into them.

Yes, and based on your lack of reply I will have to assume you fully agree with everything I wrote.

For the most part, yes. Assuming I read it.

Claghorn is going into academia. I think they're required to pick at least one or two tiny nits even if they like what is written. smile.gif

There are many, many other things I am busy picking nits with. Though the problem with picking nits is that your are picking nits with someone. And that someone might be asked to review your paper. So it is best at this stage of the game to work on bringing ideas together without doing too much criticism, so that everyone just sort of nods their heads without needing to get defensive.

 

I have never been a nit picker. Mama Claghorn didn't raise me like that.

Definitely happier. I am no longer confined to a suit. While I cannot wait to start building or rebuilding my wardrobe, I am just too F'n busy with work. But I'll get there.

In all honesty though, your suits look great. They are getting good wear into them.
