    Is that the black one, cuz if it is I've got the same one? Its a pretty sweet jacket. I guess I should post a pic with mine on once I get it back from the tailor today (had it slimmed in the body a little bit).

    Hey, Liam Gallagher posts on Styleforum! I like that silhouette. Jeans fit just like my 5EPs bootcuts, and the jacket is the perfect length. I've modified my black Yoko Devereaux fleece blazer into a standup collar and wear it with really slouchy RRDS, Nike Blazers and and an Engineer cap. My wife thinks I look like an anime character in that get up. I'll see if I can post a pic tonight.
    Could you post some details on what you did to the blazer? I'm really curious. And still pissed I only got in on that when all they had left was a grey and pink blazer.

    Nothing really special. Made a button hole and sewed on a button at the lapel (really, it's ornamental, but it makes it look like the jacket was built that way, and not just flipped up). I thought of making a hook and eye closure, but that's a pain. Oh, and I handsewed, on the inside of the lapels (handiwork - bespoke!,) a small dart on other side where the lapel "flips" over normally to help keep the lapel from flopping over, although the fleece is pretty heavy, so that was probably superfluous.

    And on the hook is the EG Bedford Jacket, which is still going to need some more tailoring done.

    What do you guys think of the fit of the jacket?
    I'm strongly considering having the body slimmed down a little more.

    You could slim the body down more, but I think that if you do so to any great extent, the sleeves--which look a little large--will look out of proportion with the rest of the jacket.

    In what way do the sleeves look a little large ?
