    It is to hold glasses in the pocket.

    I think he has a little bit more work to do on this coat than simply shortening the sleeves.

    Your belly peeking out between the open quarters is very unflattering. Not sure if that's a job for your tailor or your trainer.

    Jesus Christ what happened to this thread? Take a look at the OP and compare to some of the recent car crashes. It's going backwards not forwards.

    I have to agree, either the queers are off or the buttoni point is higher than your natural waist, but either way it is less than flattering. You are a reasonably trim guy, but those photos make you look like you're busting out of the coat.

    I'm not saying I dislike it, but that is not a scarf, it is a blanket.

    Speaking as an American living in a Nordic country: Scandinavian style sweaters other than SNS Herning all look like hipsters' ugly Christmas sweaters to us. I do not think his is ugly, but the standard norwegian red blue and white neru collar is as weird as most of us can handle, nevermind the WTF huge pattern fuzzy lopapeysas that are popular in my neck of the woods.

    I'm not quite that bad, and I hate loose ends, but my scarf is literally the same weight as my thickest sweater...
