Hard to say without seeing it on you, but I'd say just half an inch lower would be perfect.

 

Is it just me or does the right nip look higher than the left?

Hey guys, new to this forum, but wanted to ask a quick question.

 

I recently picked this up on ebay for 100 dollars 

 

http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ltnlhcygLD1r5n48zo1_400.jpg

 

it's from h&m x Versace 2011 line. 

 

what's your thoughts on it and did i just made a mistake buying it? thanks! 

 

(Disclosure: i've been trying to find a nice cheap shawl collar for a formal event and came across this one and the navy lanvin x h&m collab. if anyone can help me find a nicely priced shawl collar suit that'd be wonderful!)

If it was a full suit and depending on how it fit it could be passable. Just don't go wearing it with Diesel jeans and an Ed Hardy T shirt.

I think the whole jacket on the bust is tilted up to down from left to right.

We will see if this is a quick question or not. I can always make a new thread if needed. But here goes!

 

I am having a suit made for me soon, in a "semi-bespoke" process. I will be professionally measured, and the company takes posture notes, etc... It's a completely custom suit, and I want to be able to tell them what I'm looking for well enough to give myself the best shot at success with this suit.

 

Basics, I know I want a medium-light grey three piece suit, notch lapel, slim, modern fit. I'd like the vest to also have a notch lapel on it.  No cuffs on the pants, no pleats.

 

I don't know what else the person might ask, but I wanna be prepared, should I have pics of what I like? How does one explain a preferred lapel width? I have no clue what proper terminology is!

 

Thank you

-Scott

Shot in the dark -- is anyone familiar with Hackett blazers?  It looks like this is a Hackett jacket (going by translated page), but I can't find it.  Cotton twill jacket with white buttons.  http://losmalditosmocasines.blogspot.com.es/2013/07/outfit-navy-blue.html

I'm not. Although googling < "hacket blazer" site:www.styleforum.net > did turn up many hits. Most of them are presumably worthless, and many of the rest would be For Sale posts, but I suspect somewhere in there might be a review or two.

Well, a glance at the blazers and jackets featured at www.hackett.com does show several blue ones. Most seem to have metal buttons. Of course, replacing them with white buttons would be a fairly trivial matter, and quite affordable for buttons made of non-exotic materials.

I would add that Hackett's online won't ship to the US, nor does the Store Locator list anything in the US. 'Course, finding someone in the UK to act as a proxy for you might well be possible.

Then again, it's really just a slim-fitting blue blazer. It doesn't appear to be unique and remarkable in any obvious way. You could easily buy such a blazer in the US. And again, have white buttons put on it. Just saying, is all. But there's value in being able to try a jacket on before buying it, or to being able to easily return it if it's not quite right.

For that matter, are you even sure the jacket pictured has white buttons? In a photo, metallic buttons reflecting bright light can often appear white. But even if they really are white, swapping out buttons on a jacket is no big deal.

After all is said and done, I'm back in the market for a gold-button navy hopsack blazer again... The quintessential BB blazer simply doesn't work for me because the cut is too boxy. For reference, I'm looking for a fit like that of the J.Crew Ludlow and BR Monogram, slim and athletic, and without the skinny lapel. Any names?
