post #12451 of 33195

Hey guys, I found this blazer in an auction and I like it:

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tommy-Hilfiger-Taylored-Jacket-Blazer-38-chest-/260939557106?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D4%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D5842234627944904304

 

Do you think the color is versatile? Can I wear it with jeans and navy chinos (and tan shoes)? Thanks a lot.

Get some nice horn buttons put on the jacket. There are a few sellers here that have horn buttons. Also, I have bought a number of times from www.bennosbuttons.com. They have a few different horn buttons available too.

Is there an Italian shoe maker called Antonio Carbone, of Casa di Scarpe Carbone? I read it in a book, which also talks about savile row, but I cannot find a link verifying this info.

Yes, by my screen it looks like a charcoal grey. It would go well with white, lavender, and blue, or a combination of these colors with stripes (white and blue vertical striped shirt, gingham etc). Navy chinos would work, but the jeans I'm not so sure about. I have always thought that if a blazer is to be worn with jeans, it should be a slim fit and a little shorter in the vent area.

So I've dropped a LOT of weight over the last year and a half.

 

Long story short, most of my clothes fit more than slightly baggy, or just do not fit at all. As a result I can usually either pick a good outfit that fits horribly, or a well fitting outfit that doesn't make much sense (I'm too broke to raid any stores in a serious way). 

 

My question:

 

Navy suit, brown shoes (no black belt ATM) informal brown leather overcoat, or formal black wool coat?

Does the jacket even have faux open cuffs? If not, fake buttons are going to look really weird.

Hey guys. First time posting here, hopefully you can help me out. I'm thinking of getting myself an Isaia sportcoat off STP. Since their stuff is mostly handmade..would it be a mistake to get the waist taken in if it doesn't fit me quite right OTR? I'm thinking its gonna fit me good on the shoulders, but I'm not planning on messing with that anyway. But the chest has a nice drape that I fear I might ruin if I get the waist adjusted. I don't know much but I'm hoping someone knows the answer.

Go with the black coat. You don't really have to worry about coordinating your overcoat too much.

Here's what the sleeve look like. It supposed to be a function cuff or no? I called Jil Sander store and told me it's the design I need to short my sleeve from the shoulder. I don't know if she's serious enough to mean that. The little black thing on sleeves are not real stitching, it's a piece of "thing" sew at the 2 ends. I insert a piece of paper to show that.

What's the best solution to short sleeves? Should I remove all the black thing just short sleeves (all tailors can do) and them re-sew it? Or I really need to do it from the sleeve. or I just buy some buttons? what's the best way to do it. I'm not an expert in this. I don't want my local tailor to ruin my jacket. I really like the color, fabric and cut of it. Sorry for my confusion description. Thanks gents. biggrin.gif

this feature is par for the course on anything (worthwhile) custom made... usually part of the selvedge or just extra fabric added to the interior of the cuff both for drape and durability. If you have OTR pants that would benefit from this, just get some scrap fabric that is very similar and have a tailor add it. Should be easy and do the trick.

Nice coat. The sleeves are unfinished, so you can shorten them all you want from the sleeve end and not the shoulder. Since it's an overcoat, it's thick which I think would make it tricky for functional button holes. But who knows, good tailors can do great things.

Why not just get some new buttons and sew them on to the sleeves as non-functional, ornamental ones? Of course, you'll want to swap out the buttons on the jacket too.

Here's a picture for example :

Most everyone on SF buys items knowing that they will have to have something on the item altered in order to have it fit right. Shoulders are the one thing to not mess with, but it sounds like they fit already, I say go for it.

Is there any way to restore linen pants to their former texture?
They were ironed at the cleaner and now they're really stiff and drape poorly, like the weave is tighter.

Thanks. I don't really care it's functional or nonfunctional. But problem is I don't have matching sleeve cuff buttons. I like the original buttons. But I called them they said no, no buttons, because it's the design. foo.gif will it look wired if I leave it without any buttons?

I think. The original buttons looks good. Btw it's a double breasted jacket. Not long as overcoat.biggrin.gif
