    Hey all! I have been following Dappered for about a year now, but finally decided to make an account today (as you would expect, i need some advice) I recently purchased this leather jacket off the clearance rack at Wilsons Leather (75% off = $140). It was the last small they had in stock so I figured I would buy it and just return it if I changed my mind (Also, small is as small as it gets, no x-small)


    I have a few concerns: I feel that the shoulders and chest of the jacket fit well, however the body is about 1.5'' too long and a bit loose. Also the sleeves are maybe just a touch long, although I wore it with a thicker underneath it and they ended right about the base of my thumb.


    I spoke with a local tailor who works with leather and he advised me to hold onto it saying it isn't worth the cost to have it shortened. I know many of the posters in this forum have a good eye for these types of things so I was hoping some I could get some friendly advice. Should I return it or hold onto it? What would you do considering fit, purchase price, etc.


    Also, as far as style and color go, the artificial light in the room caused the jacket to look reddish in the photos. In person, it is a mid to dark brown.


    Thanks!

      I don't know leather jackets at all, so take this with a grain of salt, but I think that looks great and works very well for you. Any time you're considering outerwear, you have more leeway for fit because you need to be able to put it on over multiple layers and still be able to zip it and move. The length is mid-fly...just over your belt in the back. I can't imagine it looking better by being shorter.

        Agree with your comments (sleeves tiny bit too long, could prob shorten jacket a bit too), but I think it looks pretty great regardless.

          Nice jacket, and I agree with the fit. It's outerwear so you have a bit more freedom. I've always wished my jackets were shorter/more fitted but then I go out in the fall/winter with layers on and realize I'm glad I have the extra space! Again, sweet jacket!

              I like the fit of the jacket

              - looks really good with it zipped

                  I bought this suit a few months ago and kind of forgot about it. It's a Navy 100% Wool JCrew Thompson Suit that I bought at one of their Factory Outlets. I've never seen this one in their online site. The pictures were taken in my daughter's room, so that's why all the pink in the background. What do you think of the fit? Do you need to see better pictures?








                  Thanks guys!

                    Looks good to me. Are the vents still stitched?

                    Comment




                      @thmage - yes, vents are still stitched. Also, I forgot to mention that I'm only wearing the jacket in those pics.

                        Looks pretty good to me -- may be able to take in around the waist a little if you want, but I'm not sure you _need_ to if you like where it's at now.
