Los_Face: Sorry if this ended up being more than you bargained for. Looking back, your post seems to have been pics only, without requesting feedback. And I think the Hans Der Hund Rule of 2013 states that feedback (other than complements) shall be provided where specifically requested (e.g., "What do you guys think of the fit?"), to avoid deterring the fun/bragging spirit in which the thrift fit was originally intended.
And maybe this reopens the question whether there should be a separate thrift fit thread to comment on fits (a la the new Thrift Fit Formalwear thread). Then again, there are more than enough threads on SF proper that focus on honing fit and soliciting feedback, so not sure what the "thrift" aspect would add.
It's all good...pretty hilarious that this was an issue in the first place. And it's not like I am going to go and donate my chino blazer because somebody on the internet thought it didn't fit me in a pic i posted.
For the record, the jacket does in fact fit in real life, shoulders are good and the lapels lay flat against my chest. I do see the pulling happening in the pic and attribute that to the 9 pounds of "insulation" i am carrying for the Canadian winter. Will definitely be losing that over the next few months as i get ready for beach season and tuff mudder in a month.
