    Honestly, don't post on here enough to know if whether or not posting this pic/ buying this cardigan makes me a chump or not.

    A very versatile blazer. I bought the Navy a while back and the black should fit in nicely.

    I'm not sure how versatile that will be Eli. Curious to see how you pull it off. Black blazers are tough and that one looks especially tough because it's so casual.

    I don't expect it to be as simple to fit in as I can the navy, seen below, but i'm confident it'll find it's place. I have a few fits in mind already. Nice to see you posting regularly again mate. Haven't noticed you around for a while. [​IMG]

    Thanks. It was nice to get away for awhile because my wallet needed a break. I'm making up for lost time quickly though, for better or worse.

    That fit looks great. I've told you before that I think you should move in that direction, with more blazers and solid colored shirts, and I think point collars and more refined, sharper jackets would suit you even better. But there is a specific conundrum with that jacket in that black is the most formal of colors and Barena is the most casual of blazers so I think it's going to be a high degree of difficulty to build around. Not that it can't be done. You've got those Lanvin patent leather captoe sneakers right? Those are similarly complex and might be perfect with it if you have the right pair of pants.

    I don't know, elisix is a pretty casual guy. Sharp blazers will seem incongruous.

    I've paired my other Barena with Lanvin chinos and cap toes pretty nicely.

    I've actually got green and brick Lanvin chinos which I think will work.

    At MAC in San Francisco. They're women's but fit me perfectly - I have no idea if Mina Perhonen even does menswear but they should as the fabric is amazing.

    How did you size on them?
    Been looking at a few cos things but there customer service wasn't helpful at all.
    Same size as other brands or so they fit more literally like H&M?

    I am wearing an M which is what I wear is most brands. Its comfortable all the way through while standing. The nature of the cut makes it stretch if i kneel. The bottom half is slimmer but the zippers make it easy to put on then zip down.

    I havent been able to weat it much because of work.

    Hope this helps!
