    What's the white bit under the collar?

    It looks short and stiff on you. I like the buttons though. I've noticed quite alot of navy blazers have brass buttons. Is there any particular reason for that?

    Also, try taking a picture without puffing out the chest/shoulders. Stand normally. Unless you actually spend more time with your shoulders unusually erect and arms puffed out.

    That is my normal posture. Think 1940s Bugs Bunny mobsters lol.

    Looks absurd. Get the Madison.

    I will try a couple of regent jackets first. They all have side vents, and I've never had any problems with side vents.

    This, this, and maybe this.

    You look fat in it.

    Good eye! The jacket in the picture is a 40R and my actual size is 38R.

    Are you talking about the white OCBD shirt? I like silver or brass buttons. It's a personal preference.

    It's the jacket's nautical heritage. Same reason why navy is called navy.

    In my opinion the main problem is the center vent, .


    If the center vent splits open then both side vents will too. It's too tight.

    Not necessarily, I'll have to make a trip to the Brooks store whenever I have time and try it first. If it doesn't fit, it doesn't fit. I might go for the 1818 blazer as a last resort.

    Maybe, but not always. Usually side vents drape better than a center vent.

    But that's just a bandaid fix. Getting a center vented jacket that actually fits would be better.

    Oh, and if you buy the jacket, take the tag off the cuff. I'm getting really damn tired of seeing people wear them around (especially on those big cashmere overcoats).

    I mis-spoke. I said collar when I meant lapel. If you look at the notch in his left (our right) lapel, there's some white thing sticking out from underneath it.

    Yeah... Here in Korea it's epidemic. I see dudes with an otherwise fine looking coat with that ugly-ass [HAND MADE] or [100% CASHMERE] tag on the sleeve all the damn time.

    You probably do need to go a size up and then get a little bit off the sleeves.

    Tricky thing is the shoulders look good. It may just be too slim cut a jacket for him.

    I'm planning to return the jacket, so I did not want to take off any tags.

    That's the price tag.

    It looks to tight to me. My official first post.

    It is tight. Vent should not be open, among other things.
