My thoughts exactly.
I danno. It may just be me, but I don't mind someone speaking their mind, blunt though it may be...maybe this fella is a serial crap talker (in which case I'd agree about being put off by him), though I think that's a bit of a leap going off the above post.
I don't think there's anything wrong with that jacket, but the roll of the lapel looks a bit over the top to my eye, to the point where they (lapels) just look too small.
Admittedly, I'm not generally a fan of the 3 roll 2, so my dislike for the image is tied to my bias.
Going on your ex-employer's blog and bad-mouthing their product would be exceedingly unprofessional, even if the jacket were bad, which it's not.
Being Italian is no excuse.
If that comment really emanated from Guida, then as a person he is to be reviled. I hope it's not the case.
A true professional speaks through their own product. Nothing else needs to be said.
With Steed? We've spec'd out a sort-of shooting jacket, which is how we are referring to it. Using the Green Tween with Crimson Windowpane test length I have, this will be a SB two-button jacket with a box pleat in the back and a half-belt, and bellows pockets at the side. I was considering having a quilted pad on the left shoulder (I'm left handed), but as I would almost certainly never actually shoot a gun while wearing the jacket, I decided that was a little too precious. It should be ready for a fitting in June.
