Cotton I believe.
From a local Australian designer.
yeah, I have a couple cord jackets and a cord suit (navy, not purple, sorry two, but that would be boss). At one point I had a couple tweeds, but not anymore -- too hot and itchy. It's also a little too "country gentleman / English professor" for me. I think Junya does tweed really well though, with the patchwork, blocking and cool details.
For sure. That deconstructed style is pretty cool. Looks great to me. I guess, really, a "suit" is just pants and jacket made from the same material. I always like this Label Under Construction suit from the Atelier blog.
Since the professor is unlikely to grace us with fit pics, here are a couple of shots of the Geller "Richard" jacket (albeit in a different color; I believe Fok's is black). I think it's called a "jacket" because it doesn't button up further, and it can ostensibly be worn with the lapels down (I would not recommend this, however). The thing's really a cardigan.
I actually have he 48 (we are about the same size), and I think that it fits perfectly. I am probably 1/2 a size bigger than you, and I have, apparently, a much longer wingspan. The arms hit at about the same place, but the shoulders are more relaxed, and there is more room through the body, and slightly longer. I personally think that the it looks best that way, though you are entitled to interpret it for yourself. Mine looks nearly exactly like in the picture that Mortar had up, which is relaxed, but slim. It's a very lightweight piece (thick, but it's like a knit bonded to polartech, hard to explain), so it doesn't "droop" the way a heavier piece would.
I will wear a shrunken jacket as well, but in that case, I like really saggy, baggy jeans, and some kicks. The idea in that case is to get the silhouette of an aikido uniform. There is an awesome picture of Hidetoshi Nakata in Emporio Armani from a while ago in either an Esquire or GQ shoot that shows a great example of this silhouette. Actually, a lot of Armani, who was always Japanese influenced, uses this silhouette, pairing a fitted jacket with a pinched waist with flowing pants.
junya blazers are so cool. totally a grail of mine.
Sounds like Rick, too. Never thought of trying that with jeans, though. Do you ever post fit pics?
Uniqlo Navy suit with purple knit tie and Uniqlo blue micro stripe shirt
And yes, I am wearing a Robert Collina knit jacket above. Reminded me of M in the 007 Skyfall movie
I am looking for a casual maybe unstructured black blazer. Potentially in a technical fabric. Any ideas?
Lanvin might have something cool in a tech fabric. But of course you'll have to pay a lot for it
Ya would be way out of my price range.
what about this?
At the Brooklyn Flea Market 2 years ago
Has the designer/company of this jacket been determined yet?
not sure if this is the right place to ask but what should i do to this suit?
-better shirt (obvously)
I think we came to the conclusion that it was rag & bone
maybe wings & horns?
