    Length actually looks fine. Who's "we" by the way?

    Fit aside, the orange buttonholes were a pretty poor stylistic choice.

    This could potential be a sick David Bowie look

    I think you should send the item and get completely redone, literally everything is wrong, in terms of recent contemporary

    Wow. Seems to be a blazer for a He-Man action figure.

    Sorry, I think you need a new tailor. Must be an online shop, no remotely serious tailor would let you walk out of the shop with that kind of ... garment.

    The tangerine lining is nothing but win. It matches the buttonholes and fake lapel hole, right?

    Looks like wonky measurements were done by the 'purchaser' at home, sent in to some online MTM organization which cuts a block via a computer generated pattern based on the purchaser's measurements, drops the finished garment in a box and off it goes!

    WHEN are people going to learn that taking the measurements is, in and of itself, something that should only be done by a knowledgeable tailor??

    This measure yourself MTM service has got to stop. It's just a bad idea for most.

    Thank you guys! Exactly the respons we'd hoped for.
    Some of the comments actually made me laugh and that should tell it all. The feeling we had when we first tried them was that this is in fact the worst blazer ever. We never thought that this would be a bespoken suit from Savile Row kind of thing, but that it would be this bad didn't cross our mind. The story of how and why we bought them is long, but we met him in our home town and he took our measures. A month later or so we got them and the result is the horrible thing you see in the first post.

    Our plan is to contact him and tell him all the things that just isn't right. So we would very much appreciate it if you guys could point out EVERYTHING that has to be done so that MAYBE a new jacket could be worn. I know that money back is propably the best advice, but that is unfortunately not an option. So please help us point out. Thank You.

    It sounds like a guy came to your place, took your measurements, went online to indochino, moderntailor, or one of those, and input them and made the order.

    That may very well be my friend. The poor choice of tailor and style aside - can someone point out everything that is -horribly- wrong. I know that the best words for this blazer is "everything is wrong", but i would appreciate it if someone could point out the worst parts. I can see that this is one ugly blazer, but i do not have the expertise to point out every detail.
