^^ The thing is, I have super long monkey arms, so I think that rule of 'thumb' (ha ha) doesn't exactly work for me...

Looks very good.

Not really a typical odd jacket though. Looks like a suit jacket.

Actually, I used to wear the old made-in-Japan Osaka suit, and my 38R always bugged me because of the short sleeves, and the fact that the button-holes came pre-opened.

For anyone who might be interested in a cheap pair of good quality, Church's shoes, size 9 UK.
(Yes, this is my listing, shameless plug - please let me know if you have any questions).

Head up mate from the spelling police, you've spelt sole wrong twice in your add (soul). Nice shoes though.

Knowing Herringbone, there is probably a pair of odd trousers you can buy with the same fabric.

Anyone want to give me a fit critique on this odd jacket? For me everything is good but the length, which I think is an inch or so too long for an odd jacket--it's more than half my height from foot to shoulder.
(Btw it's Herringbone Osaka cut 38R).

Yeah not bad at all. Is this a new blazer or something for A/W? Care to share fabric, price, details etc as I'm in need for winter.

Any sydney users going to see Gordon Yao either today or tomorrow?

Not sure on where the jacket fits into Herringbone's lineup, but the SA (in Melbourne) told me it's the last 38R they have, so they've probably been around for a while. You can't really see on my crappy picture, but it's a herringbone pattern. It's super 120s, $500, patch pockets. Really nice jacket.

I'm a shade over 5'10" btw, so if you're a little taller I think it would be perfect length-wise.

@ Quar: agree it would be fine for a suit jacket.

Thanks Charlie's Wardrobe, appreciate your help. That is the joys of putting multiple listing up on ebay, you lost the plot after a while.

Listing fixed now.

Thanks again, hopefully these shoes can find a loving home with an owner who has both a nice soul and nice soles.

Fit looks really good, mate.

You're probably right about the lingth; I'm about the same height; a shade under 5'11, and I always found the Osaka 38Rs just a smidgen too long.

But hey, it is RTW, and for RTW, HBone always fit me best!

(Just don't do MTM or bespoke, otherwise your eyes will be opened... and you can never go back to RTW shog[1].gif)

Do the math test. Get your height in inches, divide by 2, take 4 = "correct" jacket length. I'm having the same issue though. Recently bought a blazer that I thought was a little long but turns out I've just been used to shorter jackets (it's 32 inches long and I'm 6'0).

Also ordered my first CottonWork shirt due to Charlie's WAYWRN posts. Simple twill white and used my best fitting shirt as a measurement guide. Was $63 incl. monogram.

The Hampton is a very classic rounded last - which I like. The only thing with shell is, while it will slightly adjust its shape over time, it doesn't seem to actually stretch much - so you would need to be confident of your fit especially on the forefoot width.


Thanks Selvaggio, Plestor and Blahman for your replies.

Plus shell is hotter on the foot than calf leather.

@ prof B bear. Good stuff, let us know how it goes. One thing I would recommend is emailing them with your order number and asking for the softer collar interlining, as the standard is stiff as buggery. Personal preference of course but I tend to get a sore neck with really stiff collared shirts and these are nice and soft this way.

^ Done. Many thanks for the tip. Thinking about picking this up; http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Exquisite-Emporio-Armani-Blue-linen-jacket-38-R-/130634222747?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item1e6a680c9b#ht_821wt_1185

Not sure if I need it though. Starting a grad role in 2 weeks and already have the following;

Suits - 1 Navy, 1 mid grey and 1 charcoal
Shirts - two white (one is a dobby stripe), 1 bengal blue stipe, few gingham and lavender pinhead
Pants - lands end canvas herringbone grey chinos
Blazer - 1 navy blue

Thinking it would be good for the warmer days during autumn?
