    At Work. Inside button thread came lose while traveling with the jacket, so it's unbuttoned in there, which caused the awkward fit.

    There wasnt a convenience store nearby that sells a needle and thread so you could sew it back on? Every man should be able to sew on his own buttons in a pinch. Although I do agree with JamesBond about how bad it is. I think it looks like a satchel of damp turd draped over your body.

    haha I wouldn't put it so harshly but I agree wholeheartedly about the sewing and the fit.

    Would you walk out of your job to go sew a button on? I didn't even have the jacket on for the whole there, except when clients were there.

    Paolo, that jacket isn't doing you any favors. The ultra high buttoning point is strange. Have you tried buttoning only the bottom button?

    Is that Black Fleece?

    Well if I was going to take the time to photograph myself, upload the photo to a computer, then post it on a forum dedicated to mens style, in a thread dedicated to looking your best, then I would have probably opted to sew the button back on rather than make excuses for why it doesnt look right.

    Like a few have said already though, the jacket would have been bad even with the button fixed.

    +1

    Plus I would expect needle and thread to be available at Flusser's shop, no?

    - hot!!
    - you really need to get full shots. i think full shots increase credibility on SF because they show more of the story of fit!!


    Thanks, Nii. Full shots have been facilitated! Check today's fit.
