Eh. Reminds me of the stuff U Haul tries to get you to rent to wrap around furniture when you're moving.

Not my favorite piece.

definitely go for the harnden or bergfabel out of the pieces you posted.

ziggy's too... "directional" for me to believe you'd actually get as much use out of it as the prior pieces.

would definitely recommend you check out these from forme as far as worker jacket and/or winter coat [obviously biased here though]:

Bread maker is cool, but $1000 for such a boring jacket just kinda hurts haha

that forme coat is great, wish there was a jacket like that

So, I realize that Harnden arm lengths are usually short or just right for most people. But it was suggested to me to have them tailored so I don't need to cuff.

Anyone here have to have that done? @nicelynice I seem to recall you had to have that done to your long coat. Any opinions? Do I risk throwing things off taking the arms in at the shoulder?

Thanks, all.

PH coats and jackets are one of the few cases in which I think the rolled cuff looks very natural. However, in the outfit above, I think what's drawing attention to the sleeves is the stacking on the wider pants, which is maybe a bit too much ( I know, i know), and ends up having the effect of making everything look too big. If it were my coat, I wouldn't bother. I like long sleeves for riding bicycles, and it's not a tailored topcoat.

I had my long coat tailored in the sleeves and for length. The sleeves were ridiculous, now they're just "pretty long." I think the length on yours is fine, but if it's not comfortable, never be afraid to tailor something to make it suit yourself better. Sleeve length is one of the easiest adjustments and the one that I find fixes the fit of a lot of garments for me.

Honestly, the long blazer is kind of a difficult piece to pull off. I ended up selling mine, it kind of fluctuated between looking like a blazer that was too big or a coat that didn't fit well. FWIW I think it looks good there!

The ziggy Chen coat looks really nice though. The exclusive version sold at their flagship store is a standout (atleast I think so 🤗)




I love the drape and flow. Preferably a size 46 though
post #1901 of 2490
Thanks, guys. I hate to say it but part of my hesitance is in case someday I wanted to sell the coat. An already short sleeve made even shorter would be pretty hard to find a buyer I think. Let alone the idea of really taking apart the shoulders and risking the natural drape. I'll live with it for now but keep in mind the idea of the wider pants throwing it off. Thanks, Synth and Nicely.

@ATG, if you have doubts about this piece then let it go. Look you are worried about losing value due to alteration in case you resell. That tells me you are already planning to resell this at some point. Let that point be now and not years from now when you are dissatisfied.

The only pieces I believe should be altered are the ones you know 100% are never going to be sold in which case it makes sense to get them altered to your body.

Good luck man
post #1903 of 2490
Nope. I'm extremely happy with the piece. Just hate altering something such a small amount. I don't think I own anything that I don't ever plan on selling. It's just a matter of when.

It's good not be attached to things. Most of my boots I don't plant to sell but sometimes things happen. Honestly I always buy with full intent to keep. But sometimes I experiment and have to sell. Such was the case with some Rick Owens sneaks lately.

Ah, the Game of Thrones approach to building a wardrobe. If that works for you, more power to you. I couldn't imagine doing it myself... shit's expensive enough as it is.
