A Final Post On Plaid For A While, And The Return Of Anonymous Comments
As I mentioned in the last post, I received my tattersall Black Fleece sport coat, and I am impressed with Black Fleece. The jacket fit perfectly with exception of the sleeve length (they were too long). I am going to have it altered to shorten the length, but I must admit I am shocked that I am shortening a Thom Browne creation. Regardless, I am impressed with the research that has been put into the collections, and it is obvious that he is picking garments from the archives. The jacket I recently received has very narrow lapels, 3/2 roll, two button cuffs (basically very Ivy League). The jacket and its quality has sparked me to consider another purchase which is the cashmere madras sport coat featured above. It is a beautiful garment in my opinion, and I like the fact that it comes with unfinished sleeves. I will tell you that Black Fleece does seem to be trim fitting as well. I ordered a BB3 which is supposed to be a 42 R, but I normally buy 40 R in standard Brooks apparel.
And yes, I am allowing anonymous comments once again. I expect the return of the crude comments, but hey, I know how to delete.
