So bbj finally made a sashiko jacket that fits me . Jazzed
That is a nice jacket. I find that BBJ makes great sashiko and patchwork jackets and decent rayon camp shirts. But everything else I have seen from the brand has been pretty average.
I have always wanted one of their sashiko jackets but their sizes were nowhere near close to fitting me. I got an email from Blue Owl Workshop on these and jumped on it. It also opens up and the collar lays down so it can be worn like a sports coat
@Numbernine those pockets look very stuffable
Really beautiful Frank Clegg tote bag has arrived, more than I expected. Thanks so much to Dieworkwear for the recommendation and help
How's the fit on these? Recently ordered the Plato shirt, and was considering picking up the full suit or getting the Albers trousers they just released in wool gab. Was thinking might be too cropped.
@MeatFish I have to say it depends on what size you need. There seems to be a pretty big difference in the measurements going from S/M up to L/ XL, but there isn't much difference from XS/S up to S/M, if that makes sense.
This is mine in L/XL, I'm 6'2" bordering on 6'3".
@OccultaVexillum Yea, I'm 6ft and the length looks good on L/XL. Might end up going custom to get the waist down. Thanks for example.
Wool overparka. Bring on winter
So these ended up being a pretty big disappointment. The description just says something like 'washed deer leather', but it's just a thin, unlined suede. I don't have much experience with deer leather, but it's not very supple and feels almost brittle, like they'd end up cracking at a stress point with enough wear. Also, they don't quite fit my weird-shaped clown feet; the toebox is elongated and pretty narrow, which pushes against one of my toes in a weird way. It's likely that they'd stretch with some wear, but I'm not crazy about the idea additional stress on the leather. Also, the Excella zipper is really nice, but they didn't bother color-matching the zipper tape so it's just an exposed white strip on either side of the zipper.
They're easy enough to return, but I was hoping these would work out.
Damn that sucks, the worst feeling is when the product appears worse than the photos I hate that shit which is why I stick to brands I'm familiar with.
I don't usually like the Clegg stuff as the design is just odd most of the time but that is a nice looking tote without any peculiarities.
Every margiela jacket I tried on between 06-10 fit me like shit, I'm just not cut out for them.
Copped some navy high chucks, they practically crip walk for me.
my wife got this for me for our five year anniversary, super excited, jacket is great
Sup homies, been a while. Picked up a few Margiela recently, hopefully everything going well with everyone.
One of my all time grails the blazer of this suit
Ended up picking up this whole suit as well, took advice from WBaker/Regis, seriously awesome.
