Less structure in general I mean, trend-wise. Not everything needs to be unstructured all the time. Nothing against a bit of floppiness from time to time personally.

And look at the volume of Tirailleur's trousers too, wouldn't look as good without it.

I'm curious if anyone has any knowledge of this kind of lapel and it's relevance historically, if any? This is a vintage Eddie Bauer, supposedly from the 70s.

looks classic ivy, it's difficult to see but it seems that there are no front darts as well. if shoulders aren't heavily padded, then it should be coherent within that style.

Interesting. I'm not sure I've see this type lapel before, on Ivy or otherwise. Was it associated with any particular makers (J Press, etc.)?

On an unrelated matter, my recent sartorial thoughts taken from recently-watched cinema:

David Soul wears a very well-fitted green corduroy, patch-elbowed, wide-lapel sport coat in Salem's Lot (1979).




The Outfit (2022) is a solid piece of single-setting-emulating-a-play cinema, not least of all because of the attention to detail it puts toward tailoring (or cutting). Recommended.

not a specific maker but it looks very 60s in a nice way. the current iGent groupthink is towards wider lapels but I like a coherent 60s tailoring piece. looks nice and youthful. very distinctly American. the closest I can think of is Dustin Hoffman's tailoring in The Graduate.

I know there is supposed to be joy in the hunt, but also could someone just hand me the tweed sport coat that works for me?

I'm a 43/44L, btw.

Have a look at the thrift store bragging thread. Pretty sure someone has something that you'd like in their backlog.
