Come check out my Juicy Couture Jacket! - Page 2

post #16 of 30
If this jacket was only $60, I would not even think about going to the tailors, the work will definitely cost you a minimum of $30 and won't help your shoulders and probably look weird. The problem with what you have going is that everything else looks so bland and normal, where-as the jacket is trying to be a bit more interesting. Get some tighter jeans or funky t-shirts if you want to rock the look the model has. It's up to you how you want to look though, and we can't decide that for you, we can only tell you if it looks good or not and suggest pieces that may relate to a style if you give us something to work with.

Make sure to shorten the length in the back so that the Juicy written on the butt of your pink sweatpants is also visible.


All jokes aside, the jacket looks a-okay. I wouldn't advertise that it is juicy to anyone, and that means ANYONE.

I was just throwing on clothes for fit (hanes v-neck t and apc rescues), this isnt what I would normally wear with it. I only bought the jacket for $60, but its msrp is $250, for whatever thats worth.

You could get a tailor to suppress the waist. Because of the weight and stiffness of the fabric, it's not necessary, and it might not be desirable.

The weight of the fabric is VERY light and there is almost no stiffness to it. Does this affect wether it should be "fixed"?

I just dont know whether I should sell this or take it in for major surgery. Everyone has an opinion (they hate it), but thats not what Im asking. Is it salvageable or not?

It's not worth its msrp, obviously, so whatever discount you got is immaterial... I don't really mind the fit so much, I just don't like the jacket. I don't think it'd look any better if you sized down and I don't think it's worth the effort to have a tailor go at it.

Well your choice on whether to sell it or not shouldn't have anything to do with our opinions as they are based off a photo of you showing the jacket off, not showing how it compliments your wardrobe. Juicy isn't particularly reputable, so the MSRP of $250 means nothing, it's worth around half that in my and probably a large amount of people's eyes. Oh and as for sleeves being too short if you had an M or L, it's not something to be too worried about, as long as its at least at the ball of your ankle or only slightly before it, it can simply promote the idea that your clothing is tightly fitted.

People hate it because it's Juicy. No one has an actual opinion on this jacket. If you posted this as "Come check out my new W+H Jacket!" you'd probably be showered in a circle jerk. The jacket is ok. If it's actually very lightweight, tailoring is probably not a bad idea. The fit in the shoulders is fine. The retail price of the jacket is completely irrelevant; I don't know why you keep talking about it. The price you paid doesn't even matter. If you like it, keep it and tailor it. If you don't like it, sell it.

Some people, maybe. I think it looks like shit because it does look like shit. Well, not like shit. Not even unremarkable: if I saw it on the street I'd probably remark the guy wearing it was trying too hard to get use out of a useless purchase. Buying stuff on deep discount will grant some nice finds from time to time, but for the most part I'd rather just get what I want instead of getting crap on sale that I hardly ever wear because something's off about it. Speaking of that, anyone want to buy some APC sneakers?

BTW, it's obvious the jacket is pinned like hell in the back in the model picture. You need some sort of waist suppression to make it look like that. Just take it to a tailor and ask them how much it would cost. Asking us here is kinda pointless because we can't see it in person and we're not tailors.

+1 Juicy is mostly garish and tacky, but this jacket isn't. Right now it fits and looks like a chore coat. If that's not your thing, a tailor should be able to make it slimmer. Mine would charge $20-30 for that kind of alteration. Depends if you get it darted or taken in on the seams.
