It's the end of the portion of the placket that is pick stitched down.

Hoping to get some opinions on whether I should bother getting this jacket tailored. I bought a Scotch & Soda jacket online and the chest is really the only part that feels right. Jacket is not that loose around the waist, but i think maybe the jacket material/color makes it look "big". The sleeves are too long and I'm not sure if it'd be worth the money to have a tailor shorten these. There are 4 buttons and you can see the stitching for the button holes, but it's more for the look as the 2 components are just sewn together. Not a true button hole. Pics for reference

FYI - the pics of me in the jacket, the sleeves are rolled up

I have similar trouble finding coats that fit, my chest is about the same size as yours and it used to be smaller. You either need to hunt down size 34 (44EU) or go for MTM/bespoke. Most of my coats are MTM because it's virtually impossible to find RTW that fits. Exactly how wide are your shoulders? It should be possible to find size 36 with shoulders as narrow as 16.5" or less if you aim for very slim brands, though I have also seen size 36s with shoulders measuring 18" or more, which is ridiculously wide.

Finally someone in Men's Clothing section that have almost the same body type as me. I don't know how to measure my shoulders on body, but I did measure my best fitting shirt's shoulder and my shoulders, according to the shirt, are 16''. Seems like I can't find a coat that is wide enough for my shoulders. Are the shoulders the most important part when you're looking for a coat?

 

How tall and how much do you weigh?

Pretty much, yeah.

5'6". Used to weight 120lb but currently closer to 140lb. When at 120lb my chest was like <33", which made wearing RTW pretty much impossible.

You need to try a place that supplies parts for woodworkers.

Lee Valley in Canada would fit the bill but I'm sure you'll find plenty of places in the US. Just measure the bolt.

Would either of these be more suitable towards wearing on the weekend with some denim? I'm assuming the wingtips are more informal and better suited for wearing out on the town, but I just wanted to double check.

I just got a pair of C&J westbournes. They seem to fit well, but unlike my Allen Edmonds they've been tearing up my heels. It seems like this is just because they're new and still a bit stiff, but is there anything I should do to mitigate the blistering while I break them in?

Thanks. I grabbed something from Home Depot. It is not the most elegant thing, but I have a matching pair

I have this Balenciaga blazer that I would like more info on.  I purchased it circa 2005.  It's a denim material.  I have tried searching everywhere and can't find anything about it.  Please help me identify it.  Thanks!

Do you have any suggestions for something under $400 then?
post #16860 of 28566

Keep forgetting to ask questions in this thread, will remember now:

 

 

 

 

 

I was thinking of buying my first few check/flannel casual shirts:

 

 

 

 

 

 

a few questions please:

 

1) are they suitable for a 27 year old man?

 

2) On what occasions are they most suitable / practical?

 

I would want to wear them for  casual day time and evening casual wear, going to the pub, restaurant,  shops, cinema, out with friends - are they suitable?

 

3) What bottoms and footwear and colours are best suited with these casual shirts?

 

4) Can these shirts shown above be worn all year round, or are they only suitable in the summer?

 

- im in the UK by the way

 

thank you
