From left to right: Got it, don't want it, maybe, sure.
$400 to make coffee? SMDH
Can someone list the things that are WRONG with that jacket?
It would be faster to list the things that are correct I think.
1. .. .. .
There, I'm done.
Ok, perhaps that wasn't so "good-natured". Here's a few of the most egregious to my eye:
Two colors is just bad.
2x2 buttoning? It's missing at least 2 buttons on the front, more like 4 missing.
Dated notch shape
I don't like the jetted satin-black pockets
You forgot two:
- It was featured in a Neiman Marcus store
- It was originally priced at $1,165.00 (plus tax)
- It was made in Italy
- It's designer label is in Paris?
I thought the back shot pic had a distorted shadow, but i see that it is a two-toned back...
My comments on this jacket will have to end there...
My recent purchase (yes I'm getting it dry cleaned):
I had to stare at it for a minute to see that it wasn't a blur LOL. But why would you consider such a weird jacket?!
that jacket is an abomination.
So I thought I'd post this over here because I read that this is a thread for newbies and I didn't want to clog up the AAQQGAQA thread with an inquiry every couple of weeks:
Would you rather have a deep deep brown BB 1818 suit in SaXxon wool or a Charcoal Canali suit if primarily choosing based on color & fabric and not fit(Both fit same on me)? I have 3 diff navy, 3 diff charcoal, and 1 dark grey and am deciding between the two. I'd like a brown suit, but I've never owned a Canali before even though they feel very nice & soft - just Brooks 1818, RLBL, & HF.Mahogany. I wear suits often each week so I like a large rotation.
Thank you for the help :]
I hope you're talking about the two-toned jacket; and not the teal one... :l
You just answered your own question. There has to be a Latin term for this..
Clearly I did not because I would not have asked the question had I answered my own question. I am torn between the two. I only have 3 full-canvas suits, have never owned a Canali before(and would like to) and cannot decide. I have several BB 1818's, which while decent, are not in the same league as Canali so I've read.
I think instead of being a snarky ass who was reprimanded for taking over the damn Ask a Quick Question thread, you should be a gentleman and mind your manners.
A gentleman doesn't use ad hominem arguments in order to placate his self serving bias.
