    I can't stand fake suede/leather elbow patches, which is naturally all the rage this season. I've seen velvet, cotton, cord elbow patches. I've seen patches on cheap linen shirts.

    Agree.

    But, if you are one of those hipsters with pants that strangle your privates, banana shaped shoes, stained BD shirt with extremely small collars, and generally like ill fitting clothes you might hit home run with one of these jackets.

    Those look horrible. Even the ones that look decent have the exact same problem H&M has - they're way, way too short. It's not even a fashion thing at that point, it just looks off. Generally I find that Zara's materials are pretty crap, H&M varies between crap and actually quite good (saw a very nice proper tweed jacket that I would've bought if it wasn't way short).

    You'll easily find a better used sportscoat or blazer on eBay for that money. Figure out your size, buy something that is about right (fits at least in the shoulders) and if needed find a tailor to fix things like too short/long sleeves or too roomy jacket.

    None of them look particularly pleasant. Aren't most of Zara's products made from man-made fabrics?

    Not exactly my cup of tea, I'd prefer Topman.

    For $150 you will find a better quality product and a more classic cut than Zara's at Uniqlo.

    1, what happened to it, looks like it needs to be pressed.
    2, is OK.
    3, looks OK from the front, don't like the elbow patches and those button things at the back though.

    150 bucks isn't that much I know. You can actually get ahold of much better stuff for that money though, check out the B&S forum for example.

    Truth. Or ebay. I scored a Luciano Barbera Sartoriale sportcoat for 100 bucks a while back, and a Corneliani blazer for 20. Unless you have a dire need to buy new... There are better ways to spend that money.

    :laugh: It might be a metal blazer (a few percent metal woven in with the cotton). I have one and it's really neat, though of course it's meant to be super-casual. It's also not terribly short on my 5.9" self.

    Someone posted here on MC a few months ago about his Paul Smith casual shirt having a metal content in the fabric. Says he went on a cruise for a week and the shirt rusted. :D
