Definitely keep. It has that cool Casablanca vibe as Despos brought our attention to.
Acrid, FWIW, I am not a fan of that lapel at all on you.
Acridsheep, this is perhaps the best jacket I've seen you in. The fit is very good in the shoulders, chest and the waist, and I think the length looks good as well. I like the lapels -- if the lapels were slimmed near that buttoning point, I think it would look better, but I like it as it is. You should consider keeping the jacket and getting it tailored by someone who knows what he is doing.
And from what I remember, Bogart's shawl collar dinner jacket in Casablanca was a DB, but Despos is right about the shawl collar shape being similar. Yours is somewhat broader and flatter at the buttoning point, now that I look at the photo below.
I think this is a size too small for you, linen's supposed to be on the looser side and it looks skintight around the middle though I suppose it could be your pose.
also...are you planning to wear it with a shirt? then take a flick with a shirt...
Trying to come through on my promise of regularity on this thread... now that I look at it, lots of checks going on, I see (windowpane and plaid jackets, gingham and microcheck shirts)! Funny coincidence.
I assure you it isn't skin tight, it is pretty loose everywhere to be honest. the waist taper is just too much atm. gonna do something to balance it.
And a personal challenge to you:
Stop being such a tight ass
He looks cool. I like a good fitting suit as much as the next guy, but he´s not going for that in this case. He has a relaxed formal look which works for him.
Agree when not totally perfect, but especially from behind the chest bags like a deflated juice monkey. Pity because the lower half looks awsm
Very nice Romeo, cept perhaps width n length of arms and length of jacket- tho looking at my own linen, mebe the wider sleeves are a linen thing, can anyone enlighten me?
a great look n the casual sloppiness is part of the charm
You have a very slim fit, and those shoes looks to big on you (are they?) The tie is 6/10 for this outfit. I dont know about all ''without socks thing'' But the good part is that you are trying to make something diffrent and try not be like anyone else wich is very lovely to see, I like diffrent people !
I like these colours
Subtle roped, natural shoulders. Absolutely love these DB dinner jackets. So, now we know that, on his days off from his duties on the Enterprise, this is what Jean-Luc Piccard wore.
In June, I am attending a big charity ball and the Bogart pic got me thinking that, somewhere, there must be a good source of vintage jackets. Noticed that Bogart and the Captain donned a PS.
This inspired me to listen to the Passion during my morning run. Wishing I played the oboe!
