    It looks 10x better in real life than in photographs. IRL it has a unified texture and drab colorspace. Photography loses the texture and increases the contrast, which makes it look much more "popped" than it really is. It's still crazy IRL but it's much easier to imagine wearing, I did not want it at all before seeing it in person.

    This piece is also really great in person:

    What do you guys think, are these sleeves too short? Still debating my decision to get the Knit Leisure Jacket in XS instead of S. The sleeves on the S felt too long but I'm afraid these are now a bit too short...[​IMG]

    I think it looks right for when you have your arm extended
    Hits at the wrist when arms are by your side? That's what is be more concerned about since the wrist doesn't tapper

    It's probably about 1/4 inch higher that my wrist with my arm by my side.

    Hard to tell from that angle really, but I would think a bit longer would be better especially if you start to layer it underneath which will start pushing the sleeve up some possibly even more. Was the fit in the body the next size up too baggy then?

    Yeah a bit too baggy, a bit longer, and a bit larger in the shoulders. I think it'll be fine... The fabric should stretch some anyway.

    In other news, tried on one of the Bedfords in the Block Color Herringbone. They definitely run large. Going to need to find an XS in that one if I end up getting it, for sure.

    Idk @benjaminroy . You should post a full picture of how it fits. If you take the smaller size I'd assume it will be really difficult to layer under and the sleeves do look pretty short. Have noticed mine... really fails to keep out the wind, so the ability to layer with it is nice to stay warm.

    The knit leisure jacket would be amazing if it was full wool and not 46% Acrylic with 10% Polyester.

    Not specifically a FW15 question, but how difficult would it be for a tailor to bring up the sleeves on a Bedford?

    Yes it is difficult, but the right tailor can do it... but a tailor of that skill is typically pretty pricey. You want it brought up from the shoulder, not the sleeve.

    You can definitely bring it up from the sleeve. Only need to do the shoulder if there are elbow patches. It shouldn't be that difficult although I do think it's best to give to a good tailor rather than a mediocre one.

    As @Ken P stated no need to shorten from the shoulder. Additionally, if a jacket has functioning button holes (which the Bedford does not), you would need to shorten from the shoulder. A jacket like the Bedford without sleeve vent should only be $30 > 40. With your arms by your side, measurement should be 4 > 4 1/4" from end of thumb.

    Speaking of Veilance. I just saw this on IG. It looks like the field jacket.
