    Thanks in advance SF,
    I have learnt a lot over the last year. I am now moving to tweak my jackets. I would appreciate your thoughts on the fit of these tweed jackets. I usually go for a 40s jacket with the sleeves at 24”.
    The first jacket is a Bookster Orkney tweed, 40s.
    The second is a JCrew Moon tweed 40r, sleeve shortened.

    The bookster is wonderful. The Jcrew is Okay but I can see collar gap there.

    Yes, you are right Red, I wonder if it is accentuated by the SF 'robot pose' I tried to emulate? It is not apparent when I look at myself in the mirror or see my reflection when walking along. The waist is also slimmer by a cm or two than other jackets I have and I wonder if that contributes when the jacket is buttoned? Don't have any other photos I am afraid!
