    thanks! this is the easiest jacket in the world to wear—super casual, super broken in, just wonderful (and it was only like $80).


    They're from J.Crew c.2008, when their pants were of a higher quality. They're flannel, fully lined, sturdy wool. Their current pants (bowery), I find to be of a flimsier, almost stretchy wool, though I like the cut of them more than these.

    Agree on the jcrew wool being flimsier. Ive been pleased with the bowery classic fit but the fabric leaves a lot to be desired...but then again i cant complain too much when theyre so cheap.

    the jacket looks fantastic. Navy with white buttons is my favorite.

    I actually agree with this as a general principle.

    Foo, I have a question about the coat. Why are your buttons not horizontal? Is that because of the way you're standing or is that a flaw of the coat? It looks like your left side is drooping down. I'm only nit picking because I assume this is a bespoke item, so it seemed strange.

    Yeah I noticed that too. When I look at myself straight on in the mirror, everything is parallel and straight. Maybe it was the way i was leaning a bit in the photo. Also, I may have forgotten to anchor the fronts with the inside button.

    Honestly that is so short that it reminds me of a woman's blazer.

    It is a bizarre jacket across the board.

    Eeps, not a fan of those microscopic lapels.

    I have a blazer with silver buttons which I quite like. A bit different than the normal brass buttons, but still within the realm of good taste IMO.

    I don't think this is a matter of rules (although you seem to be of two minds about it). You believe that silk doesn't fold well, and, yes, if you seek a crisp line from a silk hank folded and stuffed, you will be disappointed. The possibility I know you will not consider is that some may like that relaxed presentation.

    Does the appearance of something being forced into a shape it doesn't want to take convey a "relaxed presentation?"

    When people start presenting their preferences as absolutes or facts, things become bothersome. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but you're not entitled to your own facts.
