    What do you mean by deconstructed? like you can take it apart? Synthese is selling one that's washable probably as casual as your going to find. Just search yoox I'm sure you can find something. Ok-ni has a huge sale going on too and there's a coupon code

    anyone else find themselves over thinking what bottoms to pair with a simple navy unstructured blazer?

    i get trapped into thinking :

    summertime? ... wear with muted pastels / white ... or a light / royal / french blue --- no problem.
    wear with denim? ..... can do but not so keen ... tend to avoid exept for really deep indigo.
    wear with a dark blue chino? get all paranoid about too close to the color but not actually matching material.
    then i end up not wearing the jacket except for with the somewhat limited (with) brick red / pastel blue chino 'middled age man with a yacht' trip.

    ... then i see Tirailleur's pics are just think "fuck!" .... must be his pocketsquares!!

    off/white, gray, olive, tan (boring, I know, but can still look good if done well). I like beat up faded jeans, too.

    What size are you? I know wings & horns made some thick jersey ones which were really cool. There a lot of designers that make unstructured jackets, just depends on what your looking for, an example is always helpful.

    Looks too big in shoulders and sleeves. Try 1 or 2 sizes down

    going to size down one. I like the longer sleeves, the body is just a little too big.

    Because I am super curious as to what I picked up, and Fok sort of scared me by saying the jacket is a bit like denim, did a little more research: I believe the Fabio Quaranta jacket posted a page back is shown in 8:30 I really like the collection. I really like jackets. Can I have some more, please? :drool:

    OL is slim email tbs and they will Give you measurements. 15% codes still active I think

    OL fits are a bit whack though


    Pretty much everything goes with a blue blazer

    It's $6 to return just order stuff you like and check fabric content 100% wool usually will give you a better constructed garment. $100 for an Italian canvassed jacket is a steal if you can get the right fit

    And re Oliver spencer tried stuff from porter fabrics cool didn't really like it though fits off

    was the oliver spencer you tried post-AW2012? Before that the fits were much better imho.
