Nice!  Sleeves don't feel too long?

My best Steed jacket, which is the best article of clothing I own, period, is my green Glenroyal tweed jacket. It moves when I move. At first, I'm conscious of it because it fits so closely. But does not bind nor restrict my movement at all, despite that feeling of closeness. And pretty soon, I cease to be aware of it at all. It's just there. All my other Steed jackets have the same characteristic but I noticed it first with the Glenroyal. My red striped blazer (currently undergoing some alterations) has the additional advantage of being very light and the flannel is very soft. So it is like wearing a cardigan, perhaps. It's like wearing virtually no jacket at all. You can just forget it's there (except for all the people turning to see who it is wearing a deck chair for a jacket as I walk by).

 

Interesting, but still too abstract. Use more adjectives, like you are describing wine or a piece of food.

How do the shoulders feel?

As I've spent the last forty years attempting to purge adjectives from my writing, I'm not sure I can comply. The shoulders don't feel like anything. They are just there. The jacket is just there. You will have to experience it for yourself.

 

  • No binding or restriction of movement
  • Collar remains anchored to my neck
  • Over time, the jacket has relaxed to my shape. Putting it on it just fits
