    Your own exact words. [​IMG] I HIGHLY doubt the veracity of the statement. Therefore, you WERE ripped off. [​IMG]
    Unless you're a straight-up psychic savant, why be a complete dick based on nothing but cynically hollow assumptions?

    Hard to tell since you aren't wearing a proper shirt, but the sleeves might be a touch (1/8-1/4") long.

    sweet. I think it's a great jacket, just wanted to be sure I didn't overpay.

    The last blazer I bought was a Belvest cashmere/wool sports coat that was like $30 from Salvation Army... took it to an Italian tailor and it fits perfectly for $80 out of pocket.

    It could be. I thought the sleeves were about perfect while wearing this sweater, but it could be a little long when wearing a dress shirt. That's ok, I can live with that [​IMG]

    I would too..... I remember trying on the very first RLBL suits off the rack from Barney's New York and I was in love with myself!

    You could get it taken in for under $30...

    +1... with the money you just saved, paying $30 to get the sleeves done should be an easy decision.

    fabric picture:

    looks great, +1 on sleeve length but it's nothing to change it.
    - w yo avatar I was expecting someone somewhat larger.
    Fabric looks decent

    Looks great. BTW, that is not a windowpane, but a glen plaid pattern, and a very nice one at that.
