there are so many things wrong with this jacket, could it even be his stance ruins it? it really looks like he woke up and put on a sack of potatoes

I wouldn't say there are so many things wrong with it at all. I agree, the pockets do look a bit low and it might be a bit short, but I think if he wasn't huntched over with his usual arms plastered to his sides you could get a better idea of it. I think the fundamentals are there, the shoulders and collar. All else can fly after that in my opinion.

I own an unlined cashmere jacket without any sleeve lining. It is soft and very comfortable. It hangs more like a cardigan. You can't compare it's drape to a regular tailored jacket.

I think that Chris Despos pointed out some crucial points.

He says it is as comfortable as wearing a sweater. Unfortunately I think it is also about as flattering as a long cardigan sweater would be.

It seems to do everything possible to emphasize his sloping shoulders and the equal width of his shoulders and hips. The placement and shape of the pockets just couldn't be much less flattering. The width of the lapels is overwhelming his torso and the belly only adds to the diminishment of his chest.

I know the super soft tailoring and the crescent pockets etc. etc. are all the rage - and I'm down with that - it's all well and good. But perhaps it's not for every build/body type.

I think this gentlemen would look well with a more classically English jacket with a little structure in the shoulders, a straightish taper to the hips and little waist suppression. A reasonably low button point, and a lapel with no belly. As this would create a more V shaped effect

I'm coming into this completely blind as I've not been following him and his blog - so forgive me if my observations are not related to the entire context of ths thread.

Perhaps another photo would be more successful. It's amazing how sensitive a photo can be to lighting angle etc. etc.

The jacket looks good but the pockets are an epic fail. I think his only option is to remove the flaps and go for besom/crescent pockets.
