Feedback on Black Fleece Fit / Comments please

BB Black Fleece Size BB4.


This is straight out of the box with no adjustments. I don't think I like the fit/look, but not quite sure. I know there are those that love and those that hate the TB look. Just wanted to hear some feed back, should I proceed with getting in tailored or should I send back?


Thanks you for your input.

Not quite working for you.

Is this last season - 07? If so, you may find this season to be a little more forgiving in length.

Personally I would prefer a tad longer (the jacket). And narrow lapels don't work for you.

Jacket's too short, button stance too high.

That super-shortness bugs the hell out of me, but I realize that it's part of the TB/BB aesthetic.

Otherwise, shoulder, chest, sleevelength seems to be pretty spot on.

No offense but that looks horrible.

The proportions of the jacket do not match yours...

Jacket is a tad too short. Your shirt sleeves are too long.

I like short jackets just not on you.

This is what I'm struggling with. Based on 'conventional' design and fit, the jacket is short. But as Lee alludes to, isn't this what the TB fit (and I'm far from an expert in TB) is supposed to look like?

It's a shame because it is clearly a beautifully made suit -- it's just that everthing seems too high (the button, the pockets, the jacket waist) and then too short (the length).

Yes, but that doesn't mean it looks good. I think when you get up to the 44R size range, you may be pushing the limits of what's acceptable even by TB's self-chosen lights.

Fair point. From the looks I've seen, proportion seems to be almost everything and scaling may not translate well for larger fellows.

Incidentally, does anyone know if the BB BF suits are cut the same way?

EDIT: too early w/out coffee...I had TB on the mind, and read too quickly without realizing this was a BB BF suit.

I'm sure there will be other replies, but for now I agree with just about everything here. The shoulders sleeves etc I think are pretty spot on. The buttons, pockets sit way to high and the jacket is way too short. Overall I like what TB has done for fashion, although we probably will have a "what were we thinking" moment in the future. This does not look good one me at all. This is the 07, the 08 is a bit more forgiving as Lefty mentioned, but I still think it is not for me. And probably not for bigger guys like me. Those taller gents thinking about BB Black Fleece, I am 6'4" 210 lbs. Hopes this gives and idea of what the suit might look like on you if you fit my mold. Thank you once again to all.

I like it. I personally have the same suit though so I am biased. What size is it btw?
