Great, great jacket. I have to say, though, for my money, the shoes let the rest of the fit down.

Your jackets are too tight. Also shoulders on that particular jacket are wonky.

I think in this particular case it is due to me bending down to pet him. All my Ring jackets are unstructured in the shoulders and have been really tight before. All my jackets have been let out now so they fit more comfortably

I do think that most of my jackets are trimmer than most like, but I do enjoy the comfort and aesthetic I get but I am looking to add more "comfortable" fitting jackets to my wardrobe.

Justin's been working out.

I noticed that you said jacketsssss. So you think all of his jackets are tight?

Sorry bro...but the jacket is clearly way too tight. Regardless of your posture. And I really don't want to drudge up the 400 page Foo shoulder debate (catastrophe)...but there is something very unnatural going on with those shoulders.

Yes. Jackets. Plural. All of his ring jackets that have been posted recently are too tight.

I trust you're enjoying a winter vacation in a warm climate, perhaps the Caribbean, rather than wearing this at home in Ohio.

All good man. I mean I have spent money on my jackets and will enjoy them the way they are which might be a bit snug. I posted my Luciano jacket in the GNAT thread and it fits fuller in the chest and waist and I agree it is better for me.

Not to get too long winded, I lost a lot of weight by cutting out sweets and soda. When buying new jackets I went to aggressive with how slim they were and obviously they are too trim but in my head they were great. Now I am working on getting jackets that drape better and are not as snug.

Ninja edit, took a picture with a new tie I got from NMWA and decided to throw the jacket on again in robopose:

Dear SF brethren - I lived in Europe for three years. Outfit looks very traditional and interesting. Nice see some off-the-beaten path style.

Where in Europe did you live where this was a traditional outfit? Transylvania?

It is true that it's an old world look to some extent, the problem for me is that it's a uniform old world look. Something you could expect from a waiter or a concierge in the 20s or 30s. Still, nice to see something original and I do believe that shiny vests can work in specific circumstances. The biggest problem is the tie. A solid tie in say burgundy would have made it more interesting.
