I used to get them from Gilt.

Please tell me this is an orphaned suit jacket and not a blazer. If so couldn't find the pants anywhere in the store but the jacket fit like a glove.

It looks like an orphaned suit jacket to me.

General Rule - If you wonder whether it's an orphaned suit jacket, it's almost certainly an orphaned suit jacket. (If it's a blazer, you rarely have to ask if it's a blazer.)

Thank you. How did you size? I am a 34 waist should I buy a 34 or size up to 36? Are the 'stretch' ones okay to go true to size?

Can anyone ID this watch?

Does anyone know about the style of waist on many Oxxford trousers? I heard tell that the style is called "Hollywood waist" but I am dubious. What is the point of tailoring the trousers like this and is it easy to replicate this at home?
post #33053 of 33197
Yes, it's called a Hollywood waistband, or sometimes Drop Loop.

Some will try to say it conforms to the lower back curves better, since there's not a horizontal seam across the fabric. To be honest, I think more than anything it's a marketing tool for Oxxford these days.

So long as you have the necessary pattern drafting skills, I see no reason it can't be made at home. On the inside of the waistband you'll have the normal construction technique.

Thank you!

Does anyone know of any brands selling unique mens accessories? I am fed up of all the minimalistic watches and anchor bracelets out there on the market.

I used to get them from Gilt too.

I don't have any stretch ones, but the non-stretch ones I have I went with my usual vanity sizing of size 30 and those fit well and measure out to 32 1/16" for the pair that I measured.

Do you think the opening patch pocket position is off or right? I thought it should be on a par with the bottom button of the jacket.

Is it worth to have a pair of moleskin or cord trousers made bespoke? I'm asking this because (I might be wrong) they don't seem very luxurious fabrics so maybe is better to buy them rtw and have them altered?

Depends. Can you get the cut and styling you want RTW? Then go that route. If you want something that's not available or you are hard to fit then bespoke.

I've got custom moleskin and cord trousers because I couldn't find what I wanted off the peg.
