    @JC I've never actually ordered from Yoox, but if there is one thing I've gathered from reading PutThisOn posts about the site is that their photography and stylists are down right horrible at making the stuff they sell actually look good. PutThisOn picks out deals sometimes where stuff that is good is on sale because it looks horrible on the models they have up.

    For some reason Yoox always buttons all 3 buttons on a 3 button jacket. It's pretty silly. They'd do much better showing if the jacket is a 3-roll-2.

    Some of those blazers VespaMatt posted from Yoox are downright gorgeous. I absolutely love the patterns.


    My only issues are:


    1) The button stance on all of them seems too high. Not offensively high, but more than I would like. What does Dappered threads think?

    2) I can't do 3-button jackets, I'm strictly a 2 or 1 button only guy. A three-roll-two could work, of course.

    3) They all seem to be lightweight jackets. Given the price point, clearly the heaviness & richness of the fabric will not match up anywhere close to Kiton. That's fine - but I don't want to feel like I'm wearing a windbreaker either.


    Anybody try any of those jackets? I'd love to see personal reviews/ or feedback.

    @Vespa: The jacket I linked above seems to be a different style, not just a different color.

    You'd have to see him standing up, not walking down an incline

    Maybe their model on the product page is just really tall to be 'stylish'. I think the length looks okay on that review that someone posted earlier? :

    I've been waitlisted for that Frank & Oak blazer for a while, I doubt it's coming back in stock. It looks silly on the model, but since he's probably five inches taller than me it would fit me great

    That's really too bad. It has a LOT of promise, but that's even shorter than is stylish right now.

    It looked good in that style pro review, I think at my height the blazer would work and not be too cropped - alas, despite being 'wait listed', signing up for Hunt Club, trying to make it to the website as soon as they send an e-mail blast or post on Facebook, I have yet to make it to the site in time to get my size.

    Yeah the frank and oak stuff has a little too much hipster engrained in it.

    Frank & Oak jacket here (for anyone whose already a member):


    https://www.frankandoak.com/collection/graham-blazer


    It's currently waitlisted. I like the red one, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try.


    EDIT: Nevermind. I just saw it on a model. It's SUPER cropped.

    They may be good brands, I just don't know them. I mostly know more established brands that sell well on eBay and show up in thrifts

    I really like the Hotel one. Not gonna drop that much bank on an "unknown" though.

    I don't know any of those brands, but I really love that Tagliatore

    May give you an idea of brands to search for on eBay as well.


    #5 is my favorite of the bunch
