    I love how every other rule is "Jacket must cover your ass". A rule unfortunately lost on the masses.


    I'm not as much about the length, but this high gorge trend is getting almost weird…. it's practically on the horizontal plane on top of the shoulder. What's up with that? I've seen more and more jackets like this.

    It's interesting you say that as the jacket is not new (2 years old). I guess it depends on how long the high gorge trend has been going.

    Hmmmm… I'm not sure really, but it is interesting. For the record the jacket looks lovely… I do like it, but I have been noticing the gorge trend for a while. There are other posters I've seen as well with particularly high gorges… perhaps some of them will chime in.

    It's funny because I feel like there is slowly a shift back towards lower gorges now, and that the high gorge has been around for quite a while.

    But if all the others wear black or dark blue? Isn´t this red jacket for the orchestra then?

    Bespoke from AW Bauer in Stockholm 1953. With plus fours. Four buttons were missing. The tailor still have original buttons in thier storage 61 years later. That is true service.
