Double Breasted Style. - Page 94

I would only due hacking pockets on tweed jackets, but YMMV.

Your lapels: too narrow and straight. Contrast with this version, worn by Vox.

If I was taller I would definitely try it.

I agree with that statement..

It looks great on a HIM even if the cut and the lapels are so so..

As mentioned before I'm about to have some plain light weight double breasted blazer and blazer suits made in light solids (burgundy, French blue) and was considering adding turnup cuffs on the jacket sleeve, what do you guys think? I think the jackets will mostly be worn in a semi casual outfit anyway, as I plan to pair them with light trousers (offwhite jeans or slacks, tan linen) and wear them for summer/spring, and I'm going to get them quarter lined, so I think the context lets me play with it a bit and add some style details without it being out of place. It'd work well with a double breasted suit the same way cuffed trousers do presumably right?

 

I suppose if I don't like it I should be able to have them removed anyway. I'll check with my tailor first in any case.

You want to commission a burgundy, double-breasted odd jacket?
post #1401 of 1577

As a blazer, yes. You sound like it's outrageous. Maybe it is, but I'm pretty set on it. Am planning to use this fabric: http://www.dugdalebros.com/online-shop/bunch-140-new-fine-worsted/8976/ planning to use MoPs, quarter lined, and pagoda shoulders. I think it'd look pretty good with off-white trousers for spring/summer.

For the love of everything this site represents, please don't do it unless it is required work wear.

Are you guys kidding? It will look awesome!

It's spring/summer wear, cmon now.

Isolation, with the shoulders you could risk having it look a little uniform-like with the turn-back cuffs.

I actually think a burgundy blazer can be really nice, especially if it is a well made, single breasted and nice trimmings.

I have turn ups on my suit and blazer sleeves regularly.

Where are you going to get your pagoda shoulder?

I think a burgundy jacket can work. But db, pagoda shoulders, turnback cuffs? I think it will be very hard not to look like in costume.
post #1406 of 1577
My exact sentiments. Let's be frank, the burgundy colored DB jacket is pushing it a little, now to combine it with a laundry list of very peculiar details will result in what Sanders just called it.
post #1407 of 1577
I think the pagoda shoulders are at odds with your intention to wear it casually.

If you do patch pockets (+1 for chest patch btw!) and MOP buttons, I think a natural shoulder would be better. That is, if you do not have very downward sloping shoulders and actually need the build-up.

I think it will look very good with white linen trousers, white shirt, navy knit tie and tan shoes.

The burgundy is very loud...I would tone everything down if you want it to be a truly wearable piece and not some flamboyant evening jacket worn once a year.

post #1409 of 1577
I like the idea of a burgundy jacket, but I have never understood the appeal of turn up sleeves.
post #1410 of 1577

I think it is only appropriate on evening wear.
