my velvet blazer is from the 70s and it is super tight.
Good man. Good to have some super tight action going on. My whole problem with vintage (even though most of what I have is vintage) is that the sleeves are often too short.

Not the right thread to rant in, but the velvet blazer thing, at least in Japan, has gone on for too long. It seems so cliché its sickening. I really hate it when a trendy piece of clothing comes in and all guys with no fashion sense rush out and get one. Not only do most men look terrible) in one (I'm sure the guys on SF are the exception ), but the jacket (RTW) is cut so poorly - sleeves too short/long, too tight, etc. Being in the land where trends peak only for about a week or so, it seems guys here are finally going back to their trusty fake varsity jackets and North Face parkas... Agreeing with the fellas here, if you're going to wear one, wear it right.

If I had valvet jacket I would wear with very washed boot cut jeans with white plain or pinstripe shirts. But really, valvet blazers were in last fall i believe.

Any ideas for good brands to look for? Ebay searches for vintage stuff maybe? I need to add some slim-fitting jackets to my wardrobe, as I think I can pull them off as I am tall and very thin.

vintage savile row is cool... I would suggest going to buffalo exchange or similar stores for a decent deal. occasionally a gucci or a dolce or something similar pops up on eBay and those are great, but of course they cost you

they've been 'in' for a few years. I am not really "fashion forward" and I've had one since fall 2000 (Think "Austin Powers"). Now, everyone started putting a velvet blazer on the racks last fall. Someone more into street fashion than I am could probably date the different trends : cord blazer, pinstripe blazer and velvet blazer. Luc
