I like it! Looks good!

Here's another picture - more close up. I'd describe it as a muted, light sage green. 

 

 

And another - probably the most accurate:

I'm not the greatest at matching. Maybe camel flannel? Rust?

Hmmm to figure out where to get the funds for that sport coat.  I got something earlier this week but now that jacket is calling my name more than ever!

Hey guys

Thanks for your pictures and posts. Looking at some of your feedback would it be helpful to add say another 1.5 cm (total) to the waist?

This would be added to the list of adjustments to be made to the existing Bella Spalla model:

The new model will include:

Quarter Lined Jacket (lined on the higher part of the back and on the sleeves)
Unfinished sleeves (no buttonholes) and buttons provided apart
Lapel width 9 cms.
Front buttons stance dropped of 1 cm
Maximum allowance of fabric to let out
Increase the waist 1.5 cm larger (total)

Any other suggestions? I would prefer to keep this an open discussion, but if you prefer more privacy please feel free to PM or email me directly ben@ehaberdasher.com

This is for YOU GUYS so your feedback is important!

Thoughts on fit? Tad too tight? Sizing up would be too big in shoulders though.



While the button stance is a little high (and for which we will adjust by dropping the stance by 1cm moving forward), I do think the camera angle plays a big part as this is taken from a pretty low angle. You can see the difference in camera angles and how they make a big difference when compared with the shot below

The jacket looks great by the way - certainly makes me happy to see pics like this! happy.gif

Also, while your tailors may struggle to let out the waist just a little bit, they can also move the buttons a little bit to give you that extra 5 mm or so (in either direction).

Do you wear this with grey trousers? Any pics? It seems to close to grey to have any contrast.

I posted a picture a couple of days ago and I was wearing grey. I found it not to have much of a contrast

I know that I'm late to the party but have this same jacket, the fabric is amazing and the color is a gorgeous deep blue. It's definitely my favorite SC to date.

Informal Poll: What would you guys think of full lining? This would ensure there is plenty of fabric to let out if needed.

 

I like the unlined SCs (or 1/4 lined as you've also mentioned) better than fully lined.

I think one general problem with the Bella Spalla models is that the waist is just way too tight - e.g. for sz 40R it is 38" on the first bella spalla, and 39" on the second iteration.

It needs to be at least 40" for me to consider buying another one. (For reference, I am 5'8" 160 lbs. I.e. not a delicate flower, but not chubby either. Most OTR stuff fits me pretty good). I see this also in many of the fit pics people have posted above - it ruins the fit and the drape...

I don't have any experience with Bella Spalla but the new measurements are very close to SuSu Havana jackets. I am 5'10 and 160 and a 38r usually fits the bill. I pre ordered two jackets just before the xmas break so should get them in a couple of months....fingers crossed they will be true to the measurements advertised....

To your point, it's also easier to take in then let out...
