Ha sorry to hear that.  That's exactly why they are still at the store and not in my possession.  Along with a NWT recent Canali that they wanted $200 for (once again, not in my size).  I think 46R? and navy 3 btn with pinstripes.  If anyone wants that, let me know.

Given the plethora of orphan suit jackets at thrift stores, if anyone is interested in wearing orphaned jackets, the rule is the pants have to be tailored in the same way as a suit pant.  This way the silhouette of the suit is maintained.  Chinos instead of khakis (if anyone does not know the difference just do a quick google search); the jeans should not be  baggy or low rise;  dress pants or orphaned suit pants.  Also chose pants whose colour is a stark contrast with the jacket, so it does not look like you are trying to put together a suit.  I will not mention that the colours go together.  That is a given. 

 

Forgive the noob for having this opinion, I still have not been brainwashed yet.  Did I say brainwashed?   Sorry,  I meant educated.smile.gif

 

Speaking of orphans, today I saw a nice orphaned canali suit jacket at a thrift store, but too big for me.  Based on its style two buttons, two vents it was not that old.   When I was browsing the pant section I found the matching pants and united them.  I am sure I made someone very happy today, although he does not know that I am to thank.

Three things, based in what's bolded:

 

1) This is good general advice for wearing any kind of odd jacket, and there are indeed plenty of orphans that can pass as sport coats just fine (sometimes with a button swap), but pinstripes will still look bad.

 

2) There are Canali jackets from the 70s with two buttons and two vents.

 

3) It was probably frenchy, and he's probably laughing at you.

I'll put something together and see if I want to wear it an if it will look good with anything anyways in the meantime when I look around for the pants.

FTFY BOTH.  The University of Louisville is my alma mater (and my wife's), and I grew up in the 'Ville.  My parents both attended, and actually met there.  So, just a little enthused by how well we are doing.

But seriously...

Found two super rad vintage tweed hats. Too small for my noggin, so available. Could remember Eazy's melon size, but the Churchill seems right up his alley...

Vintage Churchill Ltd. plaid tweed with a couple feathers in size 7 1/2. I so wish this fit me.



Vintage Borsalino tweed hat size 7 3/8. More feathers.

post #67903 of 113015
Those are both great hats. I'm a 7 3/8, must resist.
